One week prior to your event - NO EXCEPTIONS! We do not feel it is proper to work out payment at events (the last thing you should be thinking about is making sure the dj is paid!). All schools must have all payment processing done BEFORE the event. Be aware that if payment is not received before the event, we will not show up at the event. Do not make plans to pay us at the event . . . we must have payment once week prior to the event.
