Just quoted a job, and the customer got back and asked me "do you have sample playlists". I have not posted here in a while, and at the same time was surprised...Just curious 1) do most of you provide them? 2) do most still get asked this question? I sent her what I thought was a great response, and the below review from a client I did an event for 2 weeks ago....Thanks everyone, Nancy from Coastal Music Services

Nancy arrived ahead of schedule and setup really fast. She worked with me to plan when we could sing Happy Birthday and even lead the song with a nice singing voice. She took a short list of songs I wanted played and based on that played a good mix of the kind of music we wanted to hear. Her price was competitive and I would definitely hire her again. Thank you Nancy for a great job!

Wow!

I never get asked for a sample playlist, but can pull past playlists from VDJ. On the website, the client can choose music, or leave the programming to me.

That is a question I just do not see asked often, only because each event is unique and what a client loves at one event may be hated by another just as easily.

Never been asked that one!
But, if I was, I would tell the potential client that I don't keep my playlists...
and that no two jobs are the same.

I get asked that one quite often. As well as "can we hear a sample of what you play?" & "Can we come see you at an event?"

Many times I have had people come to an event, but the problem with that is they have the mind set of you doing that event, and not being pliable to do theirs. Like Ausumm said, no two jobs are alike. Never had anyone ask for a sample. If you are a house.EDM at a club and mix your own I could see that. Thanks for the feed back everyone.

Hi Nancy!
I've never been asked that, but then again most of the folks who hired me/my partner were familiar with us from at least one other event.
Of those who weren't, we play them a demo video in the office. The music track was updated regularly. We also handed out a planner with a ton of suggestions of music for this or that formality. My answer to that request is that the client is the co-architect in their special day, so we'll play whatever the wish.
