Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the Hiring of a Jukebox
We are always happy to discuss your interest in hiring a jukebox. But we have listed here some of the more common questions we get asked from time to time.
When will the jukebox be delivered and collected?
With weekend hires, we normally try to deliver the jukebox on the preceeding Thursday or Friday and will collect the jukebox on the following Sunday or Monday. If your party is being held at a function room, we will contact the manager to discuss this. In any event we will arrange a convenient delivery time for you.
Can the jukeboxes be used in marquees?
Yes. If you are holding your function in a marquee, then we do recommend that you have some extra speakers supplied. A lot of sound can be lost through the fabric of the marquee and so it is important that this is compensated by having the extra volume that the extra speakers will provide. We also ask that when your marquee suppliers arrive, you mention that you are having a jukebox and ask that a small flat area is constructed aside the dance floor, so that the jukebox can stand level.
Is the jukebox loud enough? Will the jukebox need any extra speakers?
It all depends on the size of the room where your party is being held and the number of people that are attending. The jukeboxes are very loud and are usually loud enough for normal sized house rooms. If you are planning on a very loud party we would recommend some extra speakers to avoid any distortion being put through the jukebox.
Can the jukeboxes be easily moved?
Each of the jukeboxes are on a set of castors and can be easily wheeled about.
Our venue are concerned about the level of noise. Will the jukebox
be too loud?
We hire to lots of venues where the level of noise needs to be considered. In these instances, when we deliver the jukebox, we can consult the venue staff and limit or cap off the upper limit of the volume at the amplifier. The volume control that you and your guests have access to will not then go above this upper limit.
What sort of lights do you hire?
There are rope lights, lights that flash in time to the music, a strobe light and rotating lights. There's a projector that will shine messages such as 'Happy Birthday' 'Congratulations' or 'Well Done' on the wall or ceiling. All of these are easily used and simply switch on and off.
How does the wireless microphone work?
This is a professional microphone. With it being wireless the microphone can be passed between people, such as the speech makers at a wedding. The speakers or the jukebox need to be sited where the speeches are being made.
Are the Jukeboxes on freeplay?
There's no need to put any money into the jukeboxes. They are all set on free play.
Are there gaps between the songs?
The jukebox is programmed to play the songs selected in the order that they physically sit within the carousel. This means that the gaps between the songs is negligible.
Why are some hire jukeboxes more expensive than others?
All of the jukeboxes have the same sound quality - they all sound great. The additional hire charge for some models reflects the actual cost of the jukebox to us and its running costs and upkeep. In the Americana we believe we have found the ideal hire jukebox. It is big and sturdy, but also has the classic look that customers generally want. Although we understand that some customers specifically want the look of the dometop Manhatten. All of our jukeboxes look great and customers are always impressed with their look.
How far ahead should we book our jukebox?
We recommend booking as far ahead as possible. It is not always logistically possible to deliver and hire out every one of the hire jukeboxes. We have some bookings a year or two ahead.
In what order do the selections play?
The jukebox plays the selection closest to the current selection that is playing within the carousel. This is the best way of having the selections play as it means that the music is more likely to be of the same genre and style. So if people are dancing and enjoying themselves they will continue to hear similar music.
What is the stereo inside the jukebox for?
The mini-stereo that we have wired into the jukebox can be used to play tapes, cds and the radio through the jukebox. This is great for New Year's Eve as Big Ben can be played through the jukebox at 12:00am. It also provides the opportunity to play a pre-recorded tape or cd beginning to end as background music. It is also there as a backup. If there was a failure in the jukebox you would still have music at your function.
Is the smoke machine or fog machine any good?
These are both good fun. The bubble machine produces thousands of bubbles and always puts a smile on people's faces. The same can be said for the fog machine. The bubble machine can make wooden floors slippy if used excessively and the fog machine can soon fill a small sized room. But used soberly, or a little soberly, they add to the occasion and will prove popular with your guests.
Why don't you hire Wurlitzer jukeboxes?
Wurlitzer is by far the most famous name of a jukebox manufacturer. Unfortunately this does not mean that they produce the best jukeboxes. We hire the Sound & Leisure Manhatten jukebox. This is a better built jukebox and because it is made by a British manufacturer is more readily repaired and kept running. In actual fact the Manhatten is a more expensive jukebox than its Wurlitzer counterpart, but the running costs are less.Many people only know the Wurlitzer name - but trust us, the Manhatten is a better built dometop jukebox.
How are selections made on the jukebox?
The selections or tracks are selected by keying in numbers at the keyboard on the front of the jukebox. The title cards are viewed through by scrolling them with two buttons that move them left and right. When the viewer sees a cd they like, they then key in that cd number say 131. They then choose a track off that cd and key in its number say 03. (If you select a track below ten then the number must be preceeded by a zero - so 8 is 08, 4 is 04 etc.)
Do you hire for longer than one night?
Yes. If you wish to hire for a longer period, then give us a call and we will quote for this.
How many Jukeboxes do you have for hire?
At the time of writing we have sixteen jukeboxes permanently set up for hire. These consist of fourteen Americana jukeboxes and two Manhattan jukeboxes. We have two vans on the road delivering and collecting the jukeboxes.
Why do you describe your jukeboxes as full sized jukeboxes?
One reason is because we are aware that some other hirers are hiring three quarter jukeboxes. Basically small jukeboxes that were designed for the home and were never intended to be used commercially. These are perfectly good jukeboxes for the home, but are inadequate for commercial use. Another reason is because customers are always pleased/surprised as to the size of the jukebox, so clearly it needed to be mentioned somewhere that the jukeboxes we hire are full sized machines.
How reliable are the jukeboxes, do you ever experience any problems?
The jukeboxes are very reliable. Essentially jukeboxes are designed and built to stand in pubs and clubs to earn money. They would not be used by landlords and managers if they were prone to breaking down. We take great care of our jukeboxes and are confident in their reliability. During the past two years and the hundreds of hires we have done in that time, we have had just two problems arise. Both of these were solved over the phone and were resolved in under 5 mins of telephone support.
You hire for TV, Theatre and Trade Shows?
Yes. We have hired jukeboxes to Channel 4's Big Brother TV Programme - Trade Shows (The NEC, Olympia, Earls Court etc) and Theatre productions. We have also hired jukeboxes to opening days for shops and school fun days.
Can tracks be cancelled/rejected?
Up until keying in the last digit a cancel button can be pressed and a different track can be selected. Once a track is playing this can be rejected by pressing a reject button that is on the volume control.
How do we book a jukebox?
In order to secure the booking we ask that a £50.00 deposit is made payable and sent to us at Jukebox45s, 66 The Drive, Kingsley, Northampton, Northamptonshire, NN1 4SJ. With the deposit we would be grateful if you would confirm: the date of booking, your full name, home address and contact telephone numbers; also a contact name for the venue (if different) and their contact telephone numbers and address.
