I found a DJ that I love, but I have also found a live band that is amazing. I’m trying to decide which one to go with. I love the sound of live bands and to me it feels more personal.. but I’m wondering if it’s just easier to have a DJ. I don’t know can any of you bees shed some light or tell me which one you had and why?

I like djs but I’m slightly biased as my dad is a dj lol! But it makes the atmosphere more familiar and enjoyable to the crowd, but it also depends on ur audience if u hav a younger audience I say dj but if its slightly more mature, older audience I say bands

I had a band and we had a mostly younger audience. I don’t necessary prefer a band over a DJ, but sometimes both can veer into the cheesy so you just have to be selective about who you choose whether DJ or band.

Im going with a DJ, I want a band too. Some work together..maybe they could. We were going to have a friend who sings in his band sing our dance song and probably the father/daughter and mother/son song too. Then since he is a friend let him enjoy the rest of the reception and the DJ take over. But that friend is not the most accountable so its just a DJ for us.

I think a DJ is better for more of a dance crowd. Live bands are great though. DJ was much cheaper.

you could always do band for cocktail hour/dinner and dj for dancing if your budget allows for it.

A great DJ is amazing… but there is nothing like a band.

Thanks bees! My crowd is younger and I definitely want everyone to be dancing. The band I met plays alot of top 40 and radio hits, but then for cocktail hour and the ceremony they can do a more subdude melody.. where as with the DJ he’d just play it from a track, which theres nothing wrong with, but I like the idea of having the actual people there playing in person.. a pro to the DJ is that if theres a song requested, chances are he’ll have it.. where as the band is limited in what songs they know. Gahh.. I guess I’ll have to think about it more lol ;-p
