F.A.Q.

Areas served in the North East: Erie, Corry, Albion, Franklin, Butler, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Buffalo.

  1. HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?

    Walten Point Productions Entertainment Co has been providing the Tri State area with the best entertainment for nearly ten years. We have entertained thousands of weddings and other events in Erie, Corry, Albion, Franklin, Butler, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Buffalo, and beyond.. The DJs that work for our company have been hand selected, trained, and are ready to serve you with the best entertainment in the area, hands down. Our staff DJs all have unique personalities, but all are good with music knowledge, equipment expertise and are customer focused … a combination of qualities that are hard to find in many DJs who represent other companies.

  2. WHAT TYPES OF EVENTS DO YOU BOOK?

    Nearly all our functions are weddings and school functions; however, we also perform at many corporate events, class reunions, birthdays, anniversaries, holiday parties and community events. We specialize in elegant and upscale affairs held at specialize venues, hotels, country clubs, and historic mansions. We’ve also DJ’d at gun clubs, granges, private homes and senior centers! Please note that we are not only a disc jockey service, we do provide video, lighting, and sound services as well as limousine services.

  3. WHAT AREAS DO YOU COVER?

    We cover the all of the North East, but primarily our past work has been in the cities of Erie, Corry, Albion, Franklin, Butler, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Buffalo. We do charge for travel expenses, so if your event is going to be in Pittsburgh it will be slightly more expensive than an event in Erie. Contact us for more details.

  4. WHO WILL BE THE DISC JOCKEY AT MY EVENT?

    DJ Barnes, owner and staff DJ, or another top notch DJ at our company (sometimes picked based on your event location, personality and musical preference) will be the entertainer for your event.

  5. HOW EXTENSIVE IS YOUR MUSIC LIBRARY?

    Our collection of CDs cover music from the 30s and 40s big band era through the current hits of today. The standard play list consists of nearly 20,000 titles that we bring to every event. If we do not have the song you want we will get it for you as long as we are notified about your musical request at least two weeks prior to your event. We always give you the option to bring music from your own collection if we can’t locate specifically what you require (on CD, MP3 disc or iPod).

  6. HOW FAR IN ADVANCE OF OUR EVENT DATE DO YOU ACCEPT BOOKING REQUESTS?

    In most cases, clients submit their request 3 months to 2 years in advance of their date. But we’ve been known to take events as late as the date of an event. Of course we prefer as much time as possible to plan the perfect event. The sooner you book with our company the better chance we will be able to serve your needs. For the Erie, Albion, Franklin, and Butler areas there is less of a time imperative due to their location. If your event is in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, or Buffalo please note that we might not be able to provide you service the day of.

  7. HOW DO YOU DETERMINE YOUR PRICING?

    Factors that determine the rate for your event depend on the day, the location of your event, how many people will be in attendance, how long you need music played at your event and what package you choose for your event. We also have some value added options like haze machines, spotlights, video projectors, laser lights, confetti cannons, fire or even equipment for integration with a live band. Also, ask about our audio recording and slideshow options!

  8. WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE BOOKING PACKET?

    The booking packet includes the preface to the contracts, the contracts for your event (one contract for yourself and another to be sent back to us filled out by you for our own personal records), and a final breakdown of your bill for the event.

  9. CAN WE MEET OUR DISC JOCKEY IN ADVANCE?

    Prospective clients are free to schedule phone/online or in-person consultations with the owner DJ Barnes to discuss their event before signing any contracts. If DJ Barnes is already booked on the day of your event, you can meet one of our hand picked DJs on the phone or in person if you would like prior to signing any contract. If you are unable to meet in person, then we can have a phone consultation. Typically, though, DJ Barnes meets potential clients in a neutral location or even goes to their homes. For obvious reasons, we do not allow prospective clients to sit in on events (although we do allow them to come before or after the event to see what the setup looks like). This is disrespectful to our clients because it is their event. If in the Erie, Corry, Albion, Franklin, or Butler areas we can come to you, but in the Pittsburgh, Cleveland, or Buffalo areas please be prepared to travel.

  10. DO YOU CARRY LIABILITY INSURANCE?

    We do carry liability insurance, and theft insurance up to two million dollars. We are one of only a few DJ companies who do carry insurance that covers these areas. If an event facility requires that we show proof, we can do so at their request. Some venues in the area require your entertainment to have insurance. Make sure you check with your venue upfront. The last thing you want is to hire a company without insurance and find out the day of the event they are not permitted to play at your set venue.

  11. CAN YOU PROVIDE MUSIC IF THE CEREMONY AND/OR COCKTAIL HOUR IS AT A DIFFERENT ROOM, FLOOR, OR LOCATION THAN THE RECEPTION?

    Yes we can. We offer surround sound as an optional service that can cover as many rooms as our client may need. The remote set-up consists of a completely separate full sound system with all the speakers set on different levels. If your ceremony and/or cocktail location is different from that of the reception, then please choose one of these packages if you want us to provide music.

  12. WHAT IS YOUR BACKUP POLICY?

    In the rare event of an emergency with our equipment we always have back up equipment on site in order to keep the event going. With our company you know that we will be able to perform till the end of your function even in the event something goes wrong with a piece of our equipment.

  13. WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT AND BOOKING TERMS?

    In order to secure our services, a deposit of half the performance fee is due upfront (installment) and must accompany your signed contract. For installment options, your balance is due 30 days prior to the day of your event. If the same date/time period is requested by more than one client then bookings are based on the date we receive the signed contract and payment (first come-first served). We accept checks, certified checks, money orders, or cash for payment; however, we also accept credit cards via Paypal.

  14. WHEN IS MY CONTRACT DUE BACK?

    When you submit your deposit to us, the contract is due in order to secure your date.

  15. CAN YOU HOLD MY DATE FOR ME?

    Once we have received the signed agreement and the deposit has been paid your date is secure.

  16. WHAT IS YOUR OVERTIME POLICY?

    If you decide at your event that you need us to stay longer and play music you are charged a rate per each extra hour. That rate will be defined on the contract. This payment must be paid upfront before the overtime will begin. Overtime is not always an option and is made available to you by the digression of your entertainer. We will do our best to accommodate your overtime needs, but it is best to book extra time to insure that we will be able to provide you with entertainment till the end of your event no matter what.
