Should you hire a Wedding band, a DJ or both?
As a photo booth provider to over one hundred weddings in the Lancaster, Hershey, Harrisburg, and York area, we have seen an increase in the number of bands at wedding receptions. The noticeable increase in bands at wedding receptions made us think more about the concept in more depth.
In fact, we have seen a combination of bands and DJ’s playing music during a wedding reception, which may be the best of both worlds. Bands playing sets during the reception while an experienced DJ / MC manages the reception flow, announcements, formalities and plays music during band breaks.
Hiring a band for a wedding reception is a terrific way to add excitement and energy to your special day. A live band can create a fun and festive atmosphere for all genres and can help keep your guests entertained throughout the night. However, there are also potential downsides to hiring a band for your wedding reception, and it is important to weigh the pros and cons before deciding.
One of the biggest pros of hiring a band for your wedding reception is the energy and excitement they can bring to the party for your guests. A live band can get your guests up and dancing and create a fun and festive atmosphere that will be remembered for years to come. They can also help to keep the party going even when the dance floor starts to clear out. A good band will be able to read the crowd and adjust their performance, playing songs that will keep your guests dancing and having an enjoyable time.
Another benefit of hiring a band for your wedding reception is that they can be very versatile. They can play a variety of distinctive styles of music, so they can cater to the tastes of all of your guests. Whether you are looking for a band that can play classic rock, pop, or county, you should be able to fine one that can meet your needs. This means that you can have a band that can play a variety of distinctive styles of music, so that you can cater to the tastes of all your guests.
One of the cons of hiring a band for your wedding reception is that they can be quite expensive. The cost of hiring a band can vary depending on factors, such as the band’s reputation, experience, and the number of members in the band. It is important to do your research and shop around to find a band that fits within your style and budget but be prepared to pay a premium for a band that can deliver the quality and energy you are looking for.
Another potential downside to hiring a band is that they may not be able to perform all the songs you want to hear. While most bands can play a wide range of songs, they may not be able to perform your favorites. It is important to discuss the band’s song list and performance style with them before hiring them, and to make sure that they will be able to play the songs that are important to you.
Finally, one of the cons of hiring a band is that they may not be able to provide the same level of flexibility as DJ. A DJ can play music from a variety of genres and can easily switch between songs to keep the party going. A band is limited to the songs they perform and cannot respond as easily to the crowd’s request and the flow of the party.
In conclusion, hiring a band for you your wedding reception can be a fantastic way to add a fun and festive experience to your special day, but it is important to determine what is important to you from your entertainment before deciding.
