Live Band or DJ

Are you struggling with the decision between live music or a DJ for your event? Well then hopefully this article will help point you in the right direction for your wedding.

Typically, DJs are less expensive than a band. So if budget is a big concern, then we suggest a DJ.

Here are a few pros and cons to each:



- Cost Effective

- Easy to move - from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception

- Songs sound exactly as you want them

- Takes up less space


- if the DJ is off their game- might run the whole night

- Less appealing to non-dancers

- Live music - performance factor

- Tweak the lyrics for you - drum solo or sax solo

- Pleasing to all guests usually - if some folks aren't into dancing then they like to sit and experience the music vs. watching a DJ


- expensive

- less variety (depending on the band you choose- they might do one genre)

- Take Breaks so there will be a pause in your live music - but it can be an opportunity to have recorded music with songs like the Wobble and Cupid Shuffle

It is really a personal choice - but with either we suggest trying to see them in action - not wedding crash - but usually DJs and Bands will have local gigs at clubs etc. So just ask them for their schedule and go check them out before you book!
