"My husband Chris and I hired Alison to DJ a party we held to celebrate our wedding and Chris's 55th Birthday with friends. We were thrilled with Alison's contribution and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to have fantastic music to set the tone for a really fun night. Alison is dependable and lovely to work with. She not only took musical requests but she had a good read on the audience...
- Many thanks Alison! Cyn and Chris, Nelson"
"We would like to pass on a compliment of excellent service that we had received from Avago Entertainment in January 2011. The wedding was perfect, and thanks to Alison our first dance was great! She went out of her way to make it all run so smoothly for us. We highly recommend Avago Entertainment services to anybody wanting an easy going care free event".

Some Frequently Asked Questions
What is your song list like?
I have a very comprehensive list from '50s through to now, including the most popular tracks from Top 40 NZ Singles Charts. I have so much music that it would be impossible for me to list it all, but I do bring along a varied music list along to the evening function for people to look through for ideas. My music database is continually updated to reflect the many new popular tracks regularly purchased. My entire music collection is available for use at the function venue.
Are we able to make playlists for the evening and request special songs i.e. First Dance?
I encourage you to have as much input into the music as you would like. Music is a very personal individual choice and many music tastes need to be taken into consideration on such an important day.
As your DJ I have the ability to play music to suit any mood, and you can choose from just about every genre available. You are not limited to a set playlist or music repertoire as you would be with some other DJs or a band.
If you want to choose the main play list then you are welcome to do so, and we make a base play list using your requests. I offer advice and suggestions that are time-proven. I also want to know about any music you definitely don't want played. Specialty music can be provided by yourself of if requested in plenty of time I may be able to source it for you.
Do you take requests on the night?
YES. Unless you prefer not to offer the request option, I like guests to be able to come and talk with me and request their favourite tracks. The playlist constantly evolves through the evening to suit the current mood, and as guests take the initiative to add their requests to the list everyone gets to hear something they like. This keeps people interested in the dance floor instead of just drinking and talking!
How long do you play for?
I quote for a basic 4 hours, but as I have no set time limit I am available for as long as you have the energy to party!
Do you take breaks, and how often?
I don't need to take breaks so the music is as continuous as possible. There is NO DOWN TIME with Avago - if you book four hours then that is what you get! You get fantastic value for money with me as your DJ
When do you setup at the venue?
All equipment is setup earlier in the day so everything is done before your guests start to arrive.
How do we pay for your services?
The most often used payment option is 50% of the base package fee as your deposit at the time of booking to secure your chosen date, with the balance (and any extra hours needed) paid prior to, or at the Reception on the day. The deposit can be paid by cash, cheque, Internet/online banking or direct to my bank account.
Can we make payments to pay for the services we want?
YES. I have a Payment Plan option that means you can make a smaller deposit and then schedule regular payments to suit your budget until the full payment is paid by your Wedding Date.
Can we upgrade the Package we initially choose if we decide we need further services?
YES. As long as you confirm a basic booking with a deposit you can change to whichever package best suits your plans at any stage, or we can custom build one to suit. There are many options that we can discuss to tailor the package to suit your personal style & venue, & we can swap things around to suit your own schedule.
Do you offer a Contract so we know what we are getting for our money?
YES Professionals always use a contract. Be wary of someone who doesn't offer one. Sometimes people don't want to bother, but a contract ensures both parties are on the same page with regards to who is responsible for what, and you must be 100% sure of what you are getting.
Are we able to call or email or maybe meet with you during the run up to our Wedding Day?
Of course! You are welcome to call or email me as many times as you need. I live in Wakefield, Nelson so contacting me is easy and stress-free, and if you need a local meeting to finalise ideas we can arrange that too. If you have any further questions you would like to ask, or ideas to discuss, please go to the 'Contact Us' page and send me your enquiry. Thank you and I look forward to helping you celebrate your Special Day!
