Hi there! If you are interested in becoming a subcontractor for Wired Up Entertainment, there are some things we need to cover first. This is a lot of information, but since patience is one of the virtues we are looking for in our talent, it would be in your best interest to read it all the way through and make sure you understand it before you contact us.
Being a Wired Up Entertainment DJ, Event Host, Dancer or Live Performer is not a 'sit on your butt and get paid' type of job. You have to actually work. It involves some heavy lifting, technical prowess to correctly set up speakers, mixers, computers, and specialized lights, and also some pretty intense people skills. All DJs are responsible for their own equipment, set up and tear down, and running the entire show in between.
This is not a full time job. This is not a fill in position. This is not a temporary position. We are looking for subcontracted talent/performers that are not relying solely on working shows to pay their bills, but rather someone who wants to make some extra money, or just does it because it's fun. If your current job is as much as you can handle, and you are tired on your days off and don't really want to exert yourself, then this is not for you.
This type of position is paid on a per-show basis. Depending on the types of shows you have and package the client selects, you will make a certain percentage of that job. Your years of professional experience, personally owned equipment and knowledge of set up and take down will also play a factor in your pay out percentage.
You do not get to pick and choose only one type of job. We book what we book. You have to come into this understanding that if we need something covered, we need it covered.
You need to have people skills. Depending on the event, at some point you will deal with a crying bride, a pushy mother-in-law, a scarily drunk wedding party, drunk people in general, children whose parents are not watching them who just want to touch all your stuff and be in your face, and so much more. But you will also at some point meet some of the coolest and sweetest people ever. You will deal with nice people, people who tip, kids who are well behaved, and all kinds of nicer issues. Most of us find that performing is extremely fun for us. It is not all bad - but we need you to be able to handle things when they do go bad.
If you read this far, congratulations! You are on your way to becoming a Wired Up Entertainment subcontracted performer. We hope you have the patience, drive, smarts, people skills, work ethic, hygiene, promptness, and attitude to continue on in the process.
