Updated 3/27/2020 An important update about COVID-19:
If you’re worried about COVID-19 impacting your wedding plans this year, please be reassured that we’re able to work with you through any disruptions that might occur. Based on current assessments from Maine CDC, the novel coronavirus could impact gatherings including events like weddings into the foreseeable future.
Due to the nature of the virus here in Maine, and the potential for increased community spread at large events, we’ve instituted the following policies and changes to our services to ensure the safety of our DJs and your guests:
- Safety is incredibly important to us, and we’re also 100% committed to upholding our agreement for service on your wedding date.
- Due to the nature of this outbreak and evolving conditions, we understand that you or your venue may reevaluate your plans as we get closer to your wedding date.
- If your wedding date is before July 4, 2020, and you choose to cancel your event based entirely on concerns surrounding coronavirus, we will void our agreement and return any payments you have already made, including your retainer payment. As conditions develop, we will follow guidance from Maine CDC and the Governor’s Office in determining whether to extend this window past July 4, 2020.
- If your wedding date is before July 4, 2020 and you choose to postpone your event to a later date based entirely on concerns surrounding coronavirus, we will waive all rebooking fees for changing our event date, and move our agreement to your new date, subject to our availability on your rescheduled date. If we’re not available on your new event date, we will void our agreement and return any payments you have already made, including your retainer payment. As conditions develop, we will follow guidance from Maine CDC and the Governor’s Office in determining whether to extend this window past July 4, 2020.
- If you do choose to cancel or reschedule your wedding, please let us know as soon as possible.
- We will constantly evaluate conditions here in Maine to determine whether to utilize Term 6 of our agreement. In more than 10 years of providing event entertainment, we’ve never canceled a single event, and we won’t do so this year unless we receive guidance from Maine CDC or the Governor’s Office that recommends against gatherings at the time of your wedding. We’ll remain in constant communication with you and your venue throughout this process, and we’ll wait as long as possible to make any decisions based on the latest conditions.
- All contracted events scheduled during periods affected by “no gathering” or “limited gathering” orders issued by the Governor’s Office will be cancelled under Term 6 of our agreement or rescheduled to a new date as described above.
- Starting immediately, we’re no longer allowing guests or venue staff to approach us behind our sound table during events. In loud environments (like right next to our speakers during a wedding), people usually need to yell in close physical proximity to be heard over the noise. To prevent this type of close contact, we’ll be utilizing a physical barrier screen in front of our sound tables to keep guests in front of our table. As always, we’ll provide a method of communication for requests or messages that need to get passed to us. We will discuss this in more detail with you before your wedding date.
- Starting immediately, we’re asking for access to event venues as far in advance of start time as possible to ensure that we can avoid unnecessary contact with guests and venue staff during our setup process.
- Starting immediately, we’re asking couples, event planners and venue staff to consider (or reconsider) our placement on the floor plan for all events. In order to adequately separate our staff from your guests and avoid unnecessary interactions, we’re now asking for at least 40 square feet of floor space for our sound table and a physical barrier screen. We’re also asking that you place us in a corner without rear access, or in a similarly-situated location where we can avoid unnecessary interactions.
Please let us know if you have any questions at all – we’re all navigating this together, and we’re really looking forward to another terrific wedding season in 2020.
