Who Is The Best

Being indecisive can be very stressful. You need to make sure you make the perfect decision that way your night is not hindered. When it comes to entertaining your guests, music can make or break a wedding celebration. Be sure to think of it as the heart and soul of a reception. Hiring the best wedding bands is a given, but how do you find exactly what you want? It starts by asking yourself some basic questions. What type of entertainment suits your personal taste, budget, space allowances, guest demographics, and killer dance moves best.

Live Cover Band Tips

Here is a list of topics we feel you should be aware of when it comes to live entertainment for your wedding.

  • Consider the following:
    • Vibe
    • Space
    • Variety
    • Budget
  • Band pros and cons
    • Pros: Live music is, well, live. You and your guests will experience the pleasure of a performance. Anything can happen to raise the excitement level, from an infectious

horn section interlude to a moving solo.

    • Cons: Bands can be more expensive than DJs. Also, no matter how great the band, they can’t have the repertoire of a standard DJ, who can keep a huge variety of music on hand.  And if you want to hear a song the exact way the original artist performed it, you may not get what you want.
  • Pros and cons of a DJ
    • Pros: If there are a dozen songs you’re dying to hear at your wedding, it likely won’t be a problem for your DJ to find each track. Also, DJs are generally less expensive than bands. A DJ with a charismatic stage presence and excellent emcee skills can really set the mood and keep the party going.
    • Cons: On the opposite end of the spectrum, a DJ with a less-than-stellar personality can be a party killer. Improvisation is tough if, say, your dad is dragging behind tempo on the father-daughter dance or your nieces and nephews decide to request the “Chicken  Dance.” 
  • Always sample a band before you hire them.
  • Inform the band and DJ your likes and dislikes before hiring
