When we founded EPIC DJs, we decided that when hiring a DJ it should be like hiring a best mate, albeit a professional mate, to DJ for you. You don’t expect your mate to show up late, they understand fundamentally how important your event is, they don’t charge you through the roof and most importantly provide a friendly, dedicated, hands on approach to your event. We will remain in great communication with you before the event, making sure we bring the right music and equipment for the appropriate occasion. Afterwards, we will follow up with you to ensure that your night went exactly as planned.

We aim to cultivate long-term relationships, not a quick dollar. This is why we will go the extra mile to provide a more personalised offering. We believe this is a major benefit of working with an independently owned business.

We don’t shy away from competition. In fact we believe competition is a great thing. That said, not all DJ hire companies are the same and each offer different things to different people.

Besides from our personalised service, we specialise in providing DJs that are seasoned industry professionals, that are currently playing or have had real DJ’ing experience, in some of Australia’s hottest night clubs and bars. As a result, we concentrate on the quality, not the quantity of DJs we have on board. Hence as a boutique business we do not claim or wish to claim to be Melbourne’s biggest, because we would rather provide a more specialised service to those who wanted to hire a professional DJ, not an inexperienced “bedroom DJ” acting as a jukebox as part of a large franchise.

In addition, all of our events can be supplied with night club standard sound equipment, including speakers and sub-woofer, mixing equipment and microphone. Our lighting is again, industry standard, with an entire range of effects available from moving lights, lasers, smoke machines, strobes and UV effects. Our DJs will supply the most appropriate equipment depending upon your venue and event requirements.

Best of all and often to much great surprise, our specalised services come at affordable and very competitive rates too. We believe you will find our entire service offering not only great value for money but leaving a big smile on the faces of all who attend.

Your DJ will be immaculately presented, punctual, a fantastic performer with a great personality. Your DJ will also have a very strong customer service orientation and will dress to your occasion (fancy dress, formal, etc.). Your DJ will also come with a wealth of industry experience gained through playing in some of Melbourne’s most hottest night clubs and bars. In addition your EPIC DJ will bring all the right music, sound equipment and lighting effects required to establish your desired atmosphere for the occasion. Make no mistake, it will be awesome.

Absolutely, the choice is yours! We provide you with our song list well in advance of your night so you can sit down and decide what you would like played. You can select a couple of songs and leave the rest up to us, or alternatively choose every single song. Our DJs are talented at playing an entire variety of music, so whatever you choose whether it be House, Electro or classic 80s party hits, our EPIC DJs have you completely covered.

When your booking is confirmed with us, we will send you our full track list via email.

We attempt to accommodate your music requests on the night as much as possible. That said we like to organise your music tastes before the event for good reason. If you place your requests before the party, we can ensure to play the right song at the right time to keep the party atmosphere continuous. For example, if the whole party is dancing along to some Top 40 and a guest makes a request for some bass heavy techno music, you can appreciate how this might instantly change the dynamic of the party. So in that circumstance, your DJ will take note of the request and when the timing is most appropriate, mix it in.

Our EPIC DJs play for a standard of 5 hours for private events. If you require more than this, please let us know when making your booking. Corporate, education and industry events can be customised for shorter or longer periods.

It is quite often that you are enjoying yourself so much, that you want the party to keep on going. Our DJs are happy to perform for longer than the originally agreed upon time at an additional cost of $50 an hour at private events. Please let the DJ know, within 20 minutes of the original finish time whether you require additional time.

We cover essentially all of Melbourne and Victoria. If you are located more than 40kms out of the CBD, an additional fee may be charged. That said, one client found that hiring an EPIC DJ to play in Daylesford for the night, worked out much better value for money than hiring a band locally.

Of course! We can play anywhere in Melbourne (or Victoria for that matter) at any time or day for any occasion. All you need to do is contact us, give us your event requirements and give us a go. You will be really glad you chose an EPIC DJ for your event.

Absolutely, we want to help create the atmosphere that you desire so our DJs are able to wear formal attire as requested. Furthermore, our DJs have also been known to play at ‘fancy dress’ parties and dress up for the occasion too! It’s your party, it’s your choice!

Our DJs supply the equipment right for your occasion. In most instances our DJs come standard with their DJ mixing equipment, over 2000 songs, night club standard sound for entertaining crowds up to 200 people. In addition our DJs also come with lighting and smoke effects as needed. That said, some of our clients have required more or less equipment and thus we are happy to accommodate to your requests. And best of all, if on the chance we don’t own the equipment requested, we will go out and hire it for you! We are absolutely committed to making sure the night is yours!

Knock yourself out, we include a microphone so you can make a speech for as long or little as you like! Need a wireless mic? Let us know and we can organise one for you.

It would depend on the occasion. At minimum we require at least 24 hours notice. That said, if additional sound equipment or services are required, we ask really for as much time as possible so that we can work with third party suppliers if needed. Furthermore, because we are a offer a boutique service, our DJs are are constantly in demand and are kept very busy throughout the whole year. We do stress that to avoid disappointment, we ask that the sooner you can place your booking, the better chance of getting an EPIC DJ on the date you desire.

Our DJs take payment, preferably half way through the event. Please try to bring exact change as our DJs carry limited cash on them. Alternatively a 14 day invoice is available for our long-term corporate clients. We do not take personal cheques, as sometimes these have a tendency to ‘bounce’ and never be heard of again!

For both private and business clients, please take a look at the details of DJ hire costs here.

If you are unable to pay our DJ on the night, we offer the ability for you to pay with Visa or Mastercard prior to your event. We utilise Paypal to process your credit card. Paypal is owned by Ebay and is a completely safe way of paying for your EPIC DJ via credit card. All we need to process your payment is your email address; then you will be sent an invoice by Paypal who handle all your details. There is a 2.4% surcharge to use this service. Paypal then forward us the amount you have paid, less surcharge, which we will need to have received 24 hours before your event.

We understand that sometimes things don’t always go to plan, so we are flexible to rearrange our services for you. Please give us at least 72 hours notice of the original booking time, so we can allow our DJ to be free for another client. If you can provide at least 72 hours notice of your reschedule or cancelation, there will be no fee charged. If you are unable to give us at least 72 hours notice, there is cancelation fee of $100 billed.
