During cocktails and dinner it will be at a background level that will allow it to be heard throughout the entire room yet will still allow for normal conversation. Our speakers are on stands, which allows for a clearer projection throughout the room. When the dancing begins the speakers will be focused on the dance floor so that the volume level will be considerably louder on the dance floor than the rest of the room. If you would like it a little louder or quieter than average please let us know and we would be more than happy to accommodate. One word of warning; older guests sometimes have a harder time hearing when seated next to the DJ so keep that in mind when developing the seating arrangements.
