DJ or Band? Which Should You Choose?

When it comes to your big day, you want to be sure you have just the right flow of music at all times. There are two options to do this and it can be hard to decide between a live band or having a DJ there to assist. Choosing between wedding DJ’s in CT and a band can be easier than you might think. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you’re selecting the music for your big event.

Newest Hits

When you work with a DJ you can select the types of songs you want played and they can range from the oldies to the newest and hottest hits today. The DJ can bring a wide variety of music while a live band may be restricted to just the genre they play. A band may be able to take requests for songs depending on the styles they usually do, but you may find that if you want to pick and choose songs that a DJ is the better route to go.

Play for Hours

Consider how long your reception may go when it comes to the music. While a DJ can take breaks while songs are still playing, a band will generally have to take a break and the music may die down as well. Some bands may have a backup in place for music to continuously be playing but others may not. Consider if you want the music to stop completely or if you want to always have something going in the background even during breaks.

Live Bands Can Be Great Fun

One thing to consider is a live band can go back and replay certain parts of songs if you request it. They can be spur of the moment and move through your reception with ease. The wedding DJ’s in CT may not have the freedom to get back to a song you didn’t get enough of as easily as the band can.  These are just a few things to consider when you’re choosing your wedding music.
