Frequently Asked Questions
Hiring entertainment for your event is a big deal! Questions and inquiries are always welcome. Below we have provided answers to some common questions to further illustrate what Absolute is all about:
What areas do you serve?
Absolute regularly serves the Twin Cities North Metro and surrounding region. However, we often serve other areas as well. Please include your event's date, time and location in your initial inquiry and we'll provide a customized quote!
How many years of experience do you have?
Absolute is built on over a decade of Kaleb McEwen's live entertainment experience. Kaleb received his degree in Music Performance from Western Illinois University in 2008 and has been teaching and performing music ever since- both in live bands and DJ work in areas across the U.S., from Moline, IL, to Omaha, NE, to Nashville, TN, to his now permanent home here in Minnesota. Kaleb is an award-winning DJ here in Minnesota.
How would you define Absolute's "style" or approach to DJ'ing events?
As stated in our About Us section, Absolute tailors each performance to the specific desires and needs of the client. Some clients want an event that has active guest participation and involvement and others may prefer a more formal approach. Absolute stands ready to deliver in whatever way is preferred by the client. We can incorporate as many, or as little, crowd participation games and other activities as the client prefers. No two wedding days are alike and we feel no two DJ performances should be alike.
How much does it cost to book a services through Absolute?
Each booking is quoted a customized price based on the date, time and location of the event. Please call/text or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a customized quote!
What are the payment requirements to book an Absolute DJ?
A non-refundable reservation down payment is required with your signed contract to book Absolute for your event. Once the reservation fee is received, your event is logged in our calendar and confirmed. The remaining balance is due no later than 60 days prior to your event.
Do you offer any discounts?
In addition to our already affordable pricing, we often offer discounted rates at wedding fairs in the area. Please call/text, email or check our social media on Facebook and Instagram for dates, times and locations of wedding fairs in which Absolute will be participating.
What is included in the price for booking a DJ?
In each customized quote, you get an agreed-upon amount of performance time, all professional sound equipment and music required, dance floor lighting and microphones. Your DJ will also serve as your "master of ceremonies," coordinating with both you and the venue in communicating announcements and overall desired interaction with your guests. All essential ingredients to make your event fun and successful are included in each quote, with no hidden fees.
Is Absolute insured?
We carry full liability insurance. We are happy to provide you or the venue a copy of our insurance policy upon request.

How involved can we be in choosing music for our event? Do you take guests' requests?
You can be as involved as you would like! The more we know about your music choices and tastes, the better! Yes, we always take guests' requests as long as it is okay with the client(s) hosting the event.
Will we meet our DJ after we book with Absolute?
We highly suggest having an in-person meeting prior to your event, if possible. Not only does it make it easier to plan your event, but it helps us create a great connection with you! In addition to a face-to-face meeting, Absolute is also available by phone or email to address any additional questions or concerns you may have throughout the planning stage.
