About DJ Entertainment & Production

Aren't all DJ companies and services basically the same?
No they vary greatly in size, performance style, and quality of services offered. Probably the most important factor in picking a DJ is matching the DJ company's style with that of your own and your vision of how you would like your party to rock. Also, most do not have the production capabilities of PMMnP. We have the equipment and servicing power to turn your venue into a full-blown concert!

Whatever size or style of company you choose, make sure the DJ has the experience. The best way to do this is to make sure you can meet with your performer or contact a reference. This way, you can see if their personality and style match your expectations.

How is your company different?
We inspire! Our claim to fame is INTERACTION. That combined with our experience, equipment inventory and servicing power makes us the best choice for your event.

By design, we are a focused company that pays close attention to detail and offers extremely personalized service that is interactive by nature. PMMnP believes great music, a crowded dance floor, lighting that makes you say 'WOW!', and a high-energy MC performance makes a party. Interacting with your audience turns an average party into an extraordinary event.

Why are the prices between some companies so different?
Most aren't companies to begin with, they are independent operators or weekend warriors doing the DJ thing as a hobby. Don't judge value on price alone! It's a bit cliché, but you get what you pay for. You can save money by going with a cut-rate DJ, but why? Just to play music and make some announcements? BORING!!! You might as well just get an iPod or a jukebox.

Do you have references?
Yes, of course.

What package should I get?
That depends on the theme and type of atmosphere you want to create. Factor in the approximate attendance you wish to achieve versus what you expect to have so far. Think about the size of the venue, the ceiling height, and room logistics. One of our representatives will be more than happy to assist you in choosing the right package by meeting with you at your location.

What kind of customer service can I expect?
Prompt. We take great pride in working with our clients before, during, and after their event to ensure it goes exactly as planned. We are a full-time operation and are available to you as a resource throughout the entire planning process, and we will go the extra mile on the day of your event to make sure you and your guests have a great time. We want everything to be trouble-free.

What type of equipment do you use?
For sound reinforcement, we use equipment manufactured by JBL, EAW, QSC, Renkus-Heinz, Meyer Sound, KS Audio, Rane, Allen & Health, Crown, and Shure. Our lighting and trussing are manufactured by USA Stage & Lighting.

Do you use CDs or MP3s?
We use a combination of both. We bring CD libraries to our events as well as computers. The computer is a great tool that allows us to bring our entire music library to handle unexpected and last-minute requests or to quickly locate a song. All of our MP3s are encoded from the original CD at a high bit rate to ensure a quality recording. You will not notice a difference between the two formats. The CDs are there for reliability. If the computer crashes unexpectedly, we would have everything we would need on CD.

Do you have insurance?
Yes, we carry an insurance policy and can provide you with one upon request at no charge. However, if you require to be additionally insured on our policy, we charge a $50.00 administrative fee.

Can we pick what music gets played?
Absolutely. Put your own "favorite list" together from scratch, of if you need help, we offer two reference guides. For the newest and latest music, we have our Top 50 Hits list. If you want a list of our classic hits collection that includes all genres from the '50s through early 2000, please e-mail us, and we will send it to you as a PDF file.

What is your team uniform?
For dressy or formal events, we wear all black or tuxedo attire. For casual events, we wear our PMMnP uniform shirts. For themed events, please let us know how we should be attired.

When does your crew set up?
Depending on how elaborate a setup you order, this can take anywhere from one to eight hours. Basic DJ setup takes 30 minutes. Lighting, trussing, and staging can add extra time.

What if the DJ becomes unavailable or isn't with your company on my event date?
With your approval, we will substitute a DJ who is just as talented and has a similar style to your original scheduled DJ. All of our DJs work through the ranks of our company and trained exactly the same way under the careful eye of our talent manager, Chris "Chirpie" Mercado.

How do we reserve your service?
To book a party, call or e-mail PMMnP with your event date, times, event address, and other pertinent information. Once your event is booked, we will send you confirmation. A minimum 50% deposit is required initially, unless you are already on account with us. You will receive a call or e-mail from our office to finalize any last-minute details 1-2 weeks prior to your event date.

How do we submit our information and the event questionnaire?
All of your planning forms and music request lists can be completed at your convenience and e-mailed to support@pmmnp.com or faxed to 714-680-3983. We will ask you to have all of your event information finalized the week prior to your event.

About Event Games

Are inflatable games safe?

Yes. Safety is always a question with inflatable games. PMMnP strives for safety on all of our units. Rest assured that every piece of equipment is well maintained, and a log of all maintenance records is kept on file. All units are properly secured to the ground with either stakes and tethers or on hard surfaces (such as pavement or gym floors) with sand buckets. To ensure safety at your event, please be sure to let us know what type of surface you want the inflatables on. Proper supervision of the inflatables is always required whether it is by a hired PMMnP employee or you, the lessee.

If I rent an inflatable, do I pick it up?
PMMnP offers delivery, setup, and teardown of all equipment, or you can will-call the equipment from our warehouse at a discounted rate.

Do I supply the electricity and extension cords?
Yes, you provide the power, but PMMnP will bring the extension cords. Each inflatable blower requires a standard 110-volt outlet (15-amp circuit) and draws approximately 9 amps of electricity. If power is an issue at your event, please inform us in advance. For a nominal fee, we can offer generators and 220-volt power boxes.

What type of surface can the inflatable be set up on?
Dry grass is always the best choice to ensure safety for the users and to minimize wear and tear on our equipment. PMMnP secures all inflatables to the ground with steel stakes to prevent the games from going airborne in windy conditions. We prefer, when you rent from us, to please make us aware of your surface. If you mow the grass before an event, clean up the clippings so they stay out of the games, and clear the surface of any sharp objects. Also, turn off the sprinklers at least 24 hours prior to your event. We can also set up indoors, such as a gymnasiums and multipurpose rooms.

How long does it take to install the inflatables?
Generally, it takes about 20 to 30 minutes per game once the equipment has reached the event location. However, it can also take a little longer due to unknown factors that may occur during the installation process.

Are your inflatables and marquees fireproof?
Yes. All of our inflatable games and marquees are produced with a fire-retardant agent, and they comply with all industry standards.

Does PMMnP carry insurance?
PMMnP carries the necessary insurance to set up in public places, such as schools and parks. If you need a certificate of liability for your event, please ask and we will provide you with one. If you require to be additionally insured on our policy, we charge a $50.00 administrative fee.

Can the inflatables be used in the rain?
-It sounds like fun, but unfortunately, they become very unsafe in inclement weather. Cold weather is fine, and breezy days are okay. However, rain and snow are enemies to the games. If your event gets rained out, we offer rain checks.

Inclement Weather Policy:
Cancellation or rescheduling must be 72 hours prior to PMMnP delivering or setting up rental equipment. PMMnP, at its discretion, may at anytime cancel the rental of equipment should weather conditions become unsafe for the equipment and/or its participants. Once the equipment has been delivered, cancellation will result in no refunds.

How long does a rental last?
The minimum rental is 4 hours of use. If you need to keep the rental unit(s) longer, please let us know in advance.

How do we reserve your service?
To book a party, call or e-mail PMMnP with your event date, times, event address, and other pertinent information. Once your event is booked, we will send you confirmation. A minimum 50% deposit is required initially, unless you are already on account with us. You will receive a call or e-mail from our office to finalize any last-minute details 1-2 weeks prior to your event date.

Is supervision included in the pricing?
No. Supervision costs are not included in the pricing. However, we can offer you this service at an additional cost of $25.00 per person per hour. All of our attendants are game coaches who are well trained and easily distinguishable from other guests by their PMMnP-issued uniforms.

Are we responsible for the rental unit if it gets torn or damaged in any way?
Yes and no. You are no responsible for normal wear and tear on our units. Seams may develop tears in high traffic areas over a period of time. If this happens, please alert us at once so we can remedy the situation. However, if damage occurs due to failure to follow our safety rules and/or negligence (i.e., not turning off the blower in high winds), you will be responsible for all damages up to and including replacement of the unit and/or blower.

How much space do I need for the equipment?
This all depends on the equipment as each unit has a different footprint. Dimensions for each game can be found on our website.
