Pre-Booking Questions

Where are you located?

Kirkhart Entertainment is based out of Norman, OK and was founded in 2006 by owner Keegan Kirkhart. Cheers to 10+ years in business!

Why should I book Kirkhart Entertainment?

First and foremost, I take great pride in my work and I go above and beyond to make sure you have the BEST day ever! I’ve also been told by past clients that they chose me because they value a detail oriented yet engaging DJ, they want someone who can get out on the dance floor and keep both the younger AND older crowds dancing, and they want someone who can act as a “coordinator” and keep the entire event running smoothly.

In addition, I offer in person consultations, online planning forms, and stellar communication. So if you value any of those things, we might be a great fit!

Do you require a deposit to reserve my date?

Yes. Bookings are taken on a first come first served basis and require a signed contract and 50% retainer fee (deposit). Most of my events are booked months or even years ahead! The moment you are ready to book, simply contact me and I will help you start the booking process and reserve your date.

How can I contact you?

Feel free to call me for a phone consultation at 918-302-7554. You can expect a brief 5-10 minute, no pressure, informal call where I’ll can get an overview of your needs, give you a price quote, and even set up an in person consultation if you would like.

How many DJs work for you?

None! I am the sole owner and DJ for Kirkhart Entertainment. Why? Because I really want to focus on you and offer the best possible customer service. You will never have to worry about which DJ will show up at your event or trying to get in contact with the right person. You will always work directly with me to make sure your event is a success!

What music do you specialize in?

I am a Top 40 DJ who plays the greatest hits from the 1950s-2010s. I definitely know the classics that will get the dance floor packed and it’s always my goal to play a wide range of music so everyone gets a chance to dance to something they love!

The one genre I will not book myself out for is a 100% country event. I will definitely play country hits if you request them, just not for the entire event.

Do you travel?

Yes. I travel to OKC, Tulsa, Dallas, as well as a 3 hour radius from Norman, OK. The first 40 miles from my office are FREE and after that, there are travel charges.

Do you charge for setup and tear down?

No way! All setup and tear down time is included absolutely FREE of charge.

Do you have liability insurance?

Yes, Kirkhart Entertainment has full liability insurance and I am happy to provide you or your venue documentation upon request.

Planning Questions

Do you offer online wedding planning forms?

You better believe it! After you book your wedding, I will provide you with your VIP Login information. From there you can plan out your ceremony, reception, announcements, and music requests.

Can we request songs for you to play?

For sure! You can request up to 30 of your favorite songs in my online planning form. Additionally you can select up to 10 songs for your “Do Not Play” list. I never guarantee to play all of your requested songs, but I’ll try my best to work in as many as I can.

Do you allow guests to make requests?

Of course, I encourage it! However, I make no guarantees to actually play all requests, especially if they are on your Do-Not-Play list.

Will I meet you again before my event?

Yes. I always have a final in person consultation for weddings, typically 2-3 weeks before your event. You can expect a 30-60 minute meeting as we go over your entire wedding ceremony and reception in great detail. This is also when your final balance is due.

Day of Questions

How much time do you need to set up?

I arrive 1.5-2 hours before your event starts to set up.

Will you act as our Emcee?

Yes! I am very happy to make announcements and introductions for you. Communication is very important to me and I will guide you through all the announcements I will make on the day of your event during our planning process.

Keep in mind that it is not my style to be the center of attention. I simply want to keep the event moving along smoothly and let your guests know what is coming up next. Once the dancing starts, I typically let my music “do all the talking for me” as I pack the dance floor and get the party started.

What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of my event?

At Kirkhart Entertainment, I take great pride in being a dependable DJ for you. The last thing you want is to book a DJ that doesn’t show up or gets sick the day of your event! While I make every effort to avoid missing an event, in the case that a severe emergency comes up, I have a network of DJs that I trust and I will promptly provide a backup DJ to work your event.

What is your usual attire?

I can go full suit or dress down to accommodate your style. I’ve even worn skinny jeans to fit in!
