Frequently Asked Questions

Does Open Tab Productions charge for setup/tear down time or travel?
No. We typically arrive at least one hour prior to your scheduled start time and will be set up long before your first guest arrives. A travel fee ($50-$100) may apply if the event is outside of the Sacramento area.

What is the deposit and when is the final payment due?
We require a $100 non-refundable deposit and signed contract to reserve your date. The remaining balance is due in full after we setup, but before we start playing at your event.

What exactly is your “No Hassle Date Hold”?
The idea is simple, upon speaking by phone We’ll hold your event date for one week while you make your decision; no stress, no worries, no cheesy sales calls to pressure you. If someone tries to book your event date during the hold, you’ll be notified and be given the first opportunity to permanently reserve it.

Can I meet and/or interview you prior to signing a contract?
Absolutely. A DJ can make or break an event. We recommend you meet with any and all DJ’s you’re interested in hiring.

How Current Is Your Music Library?
We procure music through Amazon and a number of professional “DJ Pools” on a regular basis. We’d like to believe our music library is exceptional however in the event we don’t have a song request we’re able to download it onsite at no additional charge to you. This gives us nearly unlimited access to any song request made by your guests.

How Big Is Your Music Library?
30,000+ and still growing.

What If You Don’t Have A Song I Want?
If we don’t have a song, it’s our responsibility to find and purchase it.
