We originally wanted a band for our reception, but we don’t have a huge budget and didn’t realize at first just how expensive most bands are. Does anyone know of a good (experienced) wedding band in the NY area that charges less than $4000, or should I stop wasting my time and just start looking at DJs?
Thanks in advance for any advice!

Absolutely depends on what kind of music you want and how long you want it for. I started with gigmasters.com. We found a Bluegrass band that is coming into upstate NY from New Husband (four hour drive.) They will play for 4 hrs for under $2000. They have done weddings in the past.

in this area it is tough – might be worth considering a great DJ instead of a so-so band.

We just signed with The A Band http://www.theaband.com and they have been great so far. We got a fantastic deal and they are definitely in your price range. Our wedding isn’t for another couple of weeks, but I was impressed with their videos and they look like they’ll have a lot of fun with the wedding.
We were also really stressed with the price of bands, so we were thrilled when we found The A Band.
