Wedding Band or DJ?

DJ,Bialek’s Music

Spring is upon us, the most beautiful time of year.  The birds and the bees are out and about, love is in the air, so it must also be wedding season.  There are a lot of big decisions that go into planning a wedding, one of which is whether there should be a live band or a DJ for the reception.  There is a lot of thought that goes into answering that question, and not only does Bialek’s Music have the expert staff to walk you through the decision making process, but they also have the perfect band or DJ for your day.

Clearly this is a decision that can make or break any wedding reception because music is the heart and soul of the party.  There are a number of factors that must be considered, from personal preference to the size of the venue.  The type of music you choose can set the tone and the theme for a wedding.  For a nice eclectic mix, a DJ may be a better way to go simply because of the amount of music they have at their fingertips.  If you are in the mood for something more romantic, a string quartet could be nice.  Certain music simply sounds better coming from a live band, so it is very important to decide what kind of musical atmosphere you want to set.

Personality comes into play, as well.  A live band can bring an extra level of energy to your reception.  The experience that comes from hearing a great live band play is truly second to none, and Bialek’s Music can help you customize your choice of band, so if you want there to be a horn section and an old school, big band kind of feel, that is possible.  But if you want to hear a song in its original form or you would like a large variety of music to be available, DJs certainly have the best repertoire.  Whether it is the lead singer of the band, or the DJ, whoever is playing the music is going to be the master of ceremonies for your reception.  A charismatic DJ with bravado and presence can really keep the party moving, while a DJ with a sub-par personality can bring things grinding to a halt.

All of these are important factors to consider when making your decision, but no matter what your taste or vision is, come talk to us at Bialek’s Music and we will get you where you need to go.  For more information or for booking, please visit bialeksmusic.com.
