    We are going with a DJ…Steve and Company because we got a few really good references from them. I have been to a decent amount of weddings in the Philly area that have good bands as well, just not really sure of any to suggest.

    I am having both. I wanted a band and my Fiance wanted a DJ. We also needed Jewish music so to compromise we got both. We are using Sally Mitlas but almost went with Eddie Bruce.

    • Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden

    We were going to have an iPod wedding but instead, a friend of ours is going to DJ for an amazing price.

    I recommend No Macarena, though. They’re awesome.

    I looove these bands: Jellyroll, Dreamtime, any of the CTO band.  I love Jellyroll though, I want to use them when the time comes…

    If I got a DJ I’d go with Matt from EBE.  He’s not cheesy, he does a great job at music selection and he’s a total professional…

    We went with LOVE from EBE- one of their “e-fusion” band/dj hybrids.

    We are using Rio by EBE.  They are awesome and I can’t wait to have them at our wedding!  Plus Jonathan, their bandleader, is really responsive and really easy to work with!

    We are using one of the CTO bands. I’d previously heard them at a wedding and my fiance when to their showcase and was blown away, so we agreed.

    We’re going with Masquerade – they are awesome! Another great band that is amazing and reasonable who I’ve seen at BVT showcase is Midnight Hour – the lead singer was in Flock of Seagulls, and is very personable – they were already booked for our wedding though. Masquerade also offers a DJ when they take their breaks, so if there are any songs that you want that the band cannot offer, the DJ can take over during that time with your preferences.
