About this pro

Bugsy's Mobile Beats, LLC

Weddings • Parties • Corporate & Special Events 

Welcome to Bugsy’s Mobile Beats!  My name is David Bugg (DJ Bugsy) and we offer music, lighting, and photo booth services. 

I'm in my 18th year as a professional, mobile DJ.  I bring a skill-set that includes experiences with night clubs, sports bars, stadium events, multi-cultural festivals, graduation parties, sweet 16's, quinceaneras, bar, bas, & bat mitzvahs, school & family reunions, corporate events, and all types of parties. My wedding experiences have occurred at some amazing venues (including beaches, mansions, large banquet halls, country clubs, remote areas and yachts). 

Although I never stop learning, experience has taught me the ability to read and engage an audience well enough to apply the right mix of songs, and yet, the flexibility to handle diverse groups of people, as well as multiple age levels.  Even further, I am a DJ who respectfully knows & understands multiple genres of music.   Because of this, many of my clients become repeat customers (creating advance bookings).

Deposits are $150 to lock-in the date (set up through online invoicing)
DJ services rate: $150/hour

My basic package includes: 

  • continuous music coverage (c/c/r) (I manage an extensive library of current hits, and over 25 genres of music)
  • sound solutions (multiple speaker system & managed volume levels)
  • lighting package: 2 intelligent lights
  • wireless mics
  • emcee service                
  • working with the client to build a playlist that everyone will enjoy.
  • Set-up/break-down time is also included 

 

Book with BMB and get 6 Free up lights ($20/unit beyond 6 units).  

Special Offer: Combine photo booth with DJ services, and receive $100 off the total!  Photo booth has a 3 hour minimum.

Projector rental: $150

Our projector is available to display videos or pictures on a slideshow (that you would provide).  This JVC projector has multiple inputs (USB, micro USB, SD card slot, HDMI) and outputs (RCA, HDMI, along with audio out).  The powerful light bulb (5000 lumens) can send a clear image for up to 300” (diagonal) even in bright conditions, and is also keystone adjustable.  

Projector Screen rental: $50

Our projector screen is an HD display, 120” (diagonal) 16:9 ratio, portable (indoor/outdoor) unit with 8k 4K 3D 2D support.  It has its own stand and measures 7’4”high, 9’2” wide.  

Custom monogram gobos: $150 to display your names, and date on the wall, ceiling or dance floor.

Animated Monogram Projection: $200

Display your name, company logo, a short message, and put it in motion with special effects (i.e.: fireworks bursting, snowflakes or leaves falling, fade-in/fade-out).  There are dozens of great ideas to choose from for the animated effects.   

Other Lighting items available:

Laser: $50 (green colored laser runs through a cycle of 7 different patterns)

Disco Ball$50 (motorized sphere moves to the beat of the music, and throws multi-colored dots everywhere)

General Gobo Light$25 (shines on a wall, ceiling, or dance floor with the choice of a generic gobo that says “Happy Birthday,” “Congratulations,” “Party Time,” or a geometric pattern).  Again, a custom monogram gobo cost $150. 

Up Lights$20/unit (add ambiance to a room with floor-to-ceiling lights that can color match almost any color theme.  The units are battery operated, and last up to 20 hours)

Fog Machine$25 (creates a haze that really shows off the laser light)

BUGSY’S PHOTO BOOTH FACTS

  

Why should you choose Bugsy's photo booth?

Photo Booth rate$125/hour

We have a uniquely, custom-built photo booth created by Atlanta Photo Booth Company.  It’s touch-screen operation is so user-friendly, even a child could operate it!

Bugsy's Photo Booth made its debut on March 17, 2017, and its success has been phenomenal.  I do music at weddings, parties, corporate & school events every week, and my photo booth has been requested at nearly all of them, with annual repeat bookings.

Additional cost Photo Booth items are:

Scrapbook service: $40 

(we build your custom scrapbook showing elegant & fun artwork, layers of texture, embellishments, and, of course, everyone’s wacky photo, along with their comments & well-wishes...a nice keepsake)

Outdoor Enclosure: $25

For outdoors, we use a (10x10x15) canopy with panels to enclose three or all four sides.  It can accommodate up to 15 guests (requires 15 feet of height clearance, and additional lighting)

Inflatable, lighted enclosure: $50 (indoors only)

The inflatable enclosure is very popular!  It may appear to look like a moon bounce, (but it’s not) however, it does create a “wow” factor that everyone loves!   It will accommodate up to 12 guests (requires 12 feet of height clearance, and does not require a backdrop)

Everyone loves the fun experience that Bugsy's Photo Booth can bring.   

So call for a booking, and get in there!

It would be a pleasure to meet or chat sometime, and to answer all of your questions.


Warmest regards,

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The Booking Process (wedding)

I typically would first chat on the phone to find out a potential client’s expectations and to answer their questions.  In many cases, it’s great to meet (face-to-face) at a halfway point at a cafe, coffee shop or even at the chosen venue.  Then, if we are moving forward, I would set up an online invoice for deposit to lock-in the date (I would need your name, email and phone number).  To lock-in the date for services requires a non-refundable $150.00 deposit (set up through Square online invoicing).  I also accept PayPal, Venmo, and Cash app.   Then, I will put together a Service Agreement (contract) that would specify what I am offering (and what we already agreed on) and if accepted, we both would sign it via email.  Items that need to go into the Service Agreement are:

  1. Names {you and your fiancé}
  2. Phone and email 
  3. Type of event (ceremony/cocktail/reception or cocktail/reception, or reception only)
  4. Date and times (start/finish) of event 
  5. Name and address of the venue.                                                                                             I will add the following information:
  6. Breakdown of offer and pricing package 
  7. Payment options 
  8. Equipment and set up
  9. Liability insurance 
  10. Signatures (mine and yours)

Later on I help to build a music playlist that you and your guests will love.  Every playlist I create is customized to the clients tastes and is approved by the client.  

I also take the time to pay a visit to any venue that is new to me (to meet the staff, find out about past entertainment set ups, electrical logistics, room acoustics, insurance requirements, service entrances, and time management for set up/break down).  

What to Expect from Me:

The music never stops (unless for toasting or remarks).  My emcee style is fun, yet professional, my music transitions are blended smoothly (no scratching) I always greet and welcome the guests, and there's background music playing for those early arrivals.  My ability to read the crowd, as well as responding to requests, usually make any party Awesome Sauce!  I'll work closely with you and your coordinator, and clients will also find that I'm pretty easy to work with.

Thank you, and I am looking forward to working with you on bringing flawless entertainment. 

Best regards,

David Bugg

Wedding DJ: $150/hour

How did you get started in this business?

Started djing in college (for fun) when me and my housemates hosted a few parties, which had a few local celebrities in attendance.  


What types of customers have you worked with?

I've worked with lots of types of customers.  It's not hard for me to please my clients, when you listen to their needs and deliver what they want.  At the same time, I have to take myself out of the equation, because it's their event, not mine.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

All of the events I have done are special, but the the one that stands out of recent times is: Night to Shine (sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation).  It occurs on the same night at hundreds of churches around the world.  I do this event (volunteering DJ & Photo Booth services) every year in February for the past 3 years at my church to help people with special needs experience a Prom event.  It's an amazing experience for everyone involved.  


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Always meet with several pros before you choose one.  You'll want to be certain they're the right fit for your event.  


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

There are over 40 questions that I have seen come up, but the most common are:

1.  Have you performed at this venue before?

2.  What types of music do you play?

3.  Do you have back-up equipment?

4.  Do you have insurance?

5.  How do you dress for an event?

6.  Where can we see you perform?

7.  How much do you charge?
