EXTRAS

The Extras!!! - All the bells and whistles at your service!

80% of the time we will work with only one Emcee at an event. There are times however when two DJs are needed. Here are some examples:

  • Events with more than 150 people in attendance
  • Multiple DJ systems are needed and set up
  • Concerts or Band Sound equipment and sound technician hires
  • When a larger than normal light display is needed and set up
  • When a follow spot is used
  • Dance recitals
  • Fashions shows
  • Etc., etc., etc.

Should your event, concert or lighting event need more than one person to operate, set up and/or break down you will be informed at your initial meeting and the price will reflect the extra person (s) needed.

NOTE: The price may not be reflected in your initial contract if these items were added later and a revised contract should be written.

 

Description: Lapel Mic

These are wireless small inconspicuous mics clipped on a person and run through a sound system so the crowd can hear what is being said.

PROS:

  • Everyone can here the person wearing the mic through the PA system

CONS:

  • They have a very limited range of pick-up so you may not hear others standing close by.
  • They pick up the slightest wind noise so they are not the best use for outdoor events.
  • Some mics will pickup sound waves from other sources.

Description: Wireless Handheld Mics

These are cordless mics that can be used within a certain range (Usually up to 80 feet line of sight).

NOTE: VIP DJs always carry a wireless handheld mic to every event. These can be used for toast, announcements and more.

 

VIP Entertainment has the ability to run one, two, three or even four separate systems at once for special needs. Some events may require the use and setup of an additional sound system at an event. This may be required for several reasons:

  • Events that happen in two of more rooms at the same time.
  • Weddings where the ceremony and reception are in two different locations
  • Two simultaneous events are happening back to back at two different locations.
  • Multiple stages

When a separate sound system is needed there is usually a need for a second person to operate it. There may be additional charges for these options.

 

Description: FOLLOW SPOT LIGHT

Powered by a bright LED, our Follow spot is a portable and lightweight fixture that creates a sharp edged beam of light.

There are 7 colors plus white that create the perfect pool of light.

Great for concerts, stage shows, fashion shows, following objects or creating that special dance mood.

This fixture requires and additional person to operate and may add to your contract rate.

Description: Up Lighting

If you want to add a warm glow to your reception space but candles and string lights aren't enough, you may consider up lighting. That's an effect created by putting lighting units on the floor pointed up.  Magical makeover! Here are some dos and don’t from Martha Stewart Weddings:

Do: Focus on important areas first. This includes the cake table, the dance floor, and any spectacular floral displays. You'll also want lighting on your reception tables, so speak to your vendors about choosing the right options for each area.

Don't: Choose the wrong color. For the most flattering up-lighting, choose amber gels. While other popular up-lighting hues include red, blue, magenta, and purple, these are best reserved for your dance floor or after-party. Remember that your reception space will be bathed in whichever color you choose, so purple up-lighting will transform your all-white centerpieces into an arrangement of violet hues. Amber, the most universally-flattering color, will give your space a warm, romantic glow.

Do: Know that up-lighting can transform a bleak setting. A few well-placed up lights can change a room from drab to dreamy in seconds. Take a wedding at a community center, for example: If you were planning to turn off the overheads (too bright!) and light lots of candles but something more is needed, up-lighting a few areas will wash the room in lovely glowing hues, which can be instantly changed throughout the reception.

Don't: Under light the space. If the venue is extensive or the guest list is large, be sure to have enough lighting. In situations like these, a little won't go a long way. If you want your guests to see all of the details you spent so much time preparing, you need to ensure they're visible.

Do: Hire a company that uses LEDs. There are several types of products you can use for up-lighting. The safest are LEDs, which produce a lot of light while generating little heat and offer numerous color options. Par cans are less popular because they get very hot, which can cause an electrical fire, and come in limited hues. LEDs are available in wired and wireless formats—the latter is preferable (but more costly) because they're battery-operated and don't come with long electrical cords someone could trip over.

Don't: Use LEDs outside if they're not waterproof. If you're DIYing the up lights, rent LEDs that are specially made for outdoor events. If they're not waterproof and it rains, the wet lights could catch on fire.

VIP Entertainment carries a large assortment of these lights.

Our inventory consist of:
10 Wireless LED up lights (indoor use)
25 Wired LED Up lights (indoor use)
8 waterproof wired LED up Lights (indoor or outdoor use)
10 wired Par 64 Led up lights (Large Black Cans) (indoor use)
