I’ve gotta say that a live band (if they’re an good, at least) will almost always cost more than a DJ. From my experience as a musician who plays a lot of weddings, I can tell you that each individual musician will expect at least $100 just for showing up and playing at all, plus more money depending on how long they are expected to play. For a group of four, for example, you can expect to pay $500 for an hour or two of music… and I’m guessing you want more than that, right?

Sorry I can’t be more helpful–I’m in Indiana, so I can’t give you any location-specific suggestions. I’d go with the iPod (with a trusted friend “operating” it) if you are trying to save money.

Try Lettuce Cater at http://www.lettucecater.com. You can email Jules at [email protected] for more information. They have an ala carte menu for options and they have wonderful drop-off menus that will help you stay within budget. The have both hot and cold appetizer options from around 2.75 per person. I would suggest just emailing Jules and letting them know what you are looking to spend and how many people you need to feed. Ask if they have any suggestions for you.

For music, you could try http://www.ozzyharris.com. I heard him the other day playing at Bd’s Mongolian Grill in Burnsville, MN.  He plays there on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. He is great. He plays and sings current songs.  His rates are as follows: $60/hr. for a two hour show (two 50 mn. sets), and $50/hr. for a three hour show (three 50 mn. sets).

Hope this helps!
