4 Reasons To Pick a DJ Over a Live Band at Your Wedding

by | Sep 19, 2018 | Wedding Services

It doesn’t matter how many times you practice your killer dance moves before the big night—if you don’t have the right music, the dance vibes will dissolve quicker than you can say “we should’ve picked a DJ instead.”
To ensure you don’t waste hours practicing your moonwalk and Dirty Dancing lift, here are four reasons why you should choose DJ services over a live band at your wedding.

1) Guarantee a Variety of Music
When was the last time you danced to bluesy swing music for five hours and loved it? Probably never. A dance party needs variety. Hiring a DJ ensures you’ll have those epic electronic buildups followed by some smooth jazz to cool down. The whole party can sing along to “Sweet Caroline” and then breakout into synchronized Michael Jackson “Thriller” moves.

The moment you think of taking a break, a new and exciting tune comes on the speakers, and you beg your dance partner to stay for just one more. Diversity keeps you on the dance floor. Repetition doesn’t.

Not to mention, a variety of music will appeal to a larger audience. Both your granny and your five-year-old nephew will be out their boogying on the dance floor together.

2) Don’t Bust Your Budget

DJs are typically cheaper than a live band.

A live band includes many moving parts and multiple musicians. A 12-person band, complete with an orchestra of brass and string instruments, will require a salary for individual player. A DJ, on the other hand, is a single man venture with less equipment to haul in and out.

3) A DJ Requires Less Space

Finding the perfect wedding venue is hard enough, but add finding a big stage for a live band to mix and you’ve got a harsh migraine brewing.

Avoid adding more stress to your never-ending to-do list and hire a DJ’s services instead.

Not to mention, many venues have restrictions on the number of musicians who can play or the amount of equipment they can bring into the space. Some venues don’t have enough electrical power supply or enforce strict noise limitations.

4) Dance to the Classics, Just the Way You Like Them

Only a DJ can play your favorite songs, just the way you remember them. No one will ever sing “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” as well as Cyndi Lauper or “Love Shack” as well as the B-52’s, so why ruin a good thing?

Don’t let a musician’s bizarre interpretation of Queen be the buzz kill to your dancing vibes. Just hire a DJ at Limelight Entertainment.
