The Great Debate: Band vs. DJ
Even if you have never been involved in planning a wedding before, you surely must have heard about one of the biggest wedding debates ever: “Should we hire a band or a DJ?”. And while nobody but you can give an actual answer to this, it is also very important to consider all aspects when planning for the Big Day.
What are the main differences between a band and a DJ? What are the advantages of hiring a DJ over a band? We have some ideas for you to keep in mind – so read on and find out more.
• In general, DJs are considered to be less expensive than bands. Yes, this depends a lot on who you hire – there are also a lot of bands that are less expensive than DJs, depending on the band’s experience and popularity.
• Furthermore, a DJ can provide you with a much larger variety of songs.
In general, bands are more focused on particular genres or repertoires. Some of them will be more than willing to prepare songs requested by you – but, at the end of the day, a DJ will still be able to provide you with more musical options.
• A DJ will not need a lot of space to operate, whereas a band would. So, if you want to have a very intimate wedding in a superb small venue, you might want to rule out the band altogether.
• Last, but definitely not least, remember that a DJ will not only mix music, but also seamlessly coordinate the flow of the events, according to the timeline you provide him/her.
