Absolutely! Every event with Junction 88 requires a signed agreement to secure your DJ/equipment for your event.

Do you act as the Master of Ceremonies? (Emcee)
Yes. If your DJ is not also your MC then something is wrong. Your DJ is one of the most important pieces of your event. Keeping guests captivated, informed, and entertained is one of the most important parts of what we do.
Do you take requests?
The standard answer is Yes. However, if you don’t want your DJ to take requests from your guests, that is not a problem at all. E.g. we had a client display the DO NOT PLAY list for her guests to see so they could “assist” them in their music requests. We loved the idea.
How do you feel about a NO PLAY List?
We feel that without a doubt if you don’t want to hear a song, it will not be played. Period.
