There is a classic debate about whether to use a DJ or a musician for a wedding. A DJ offers a practically unlimited number of songs. They have a variety of genres to pull from to make sure the song you want fits the mood. But DJs do not have as much of the personal touch a musician might have. Musicians give an electrifying feeling to a wedding. They give a personal touch to weddings as there is nothing better than live music. But they can end up being costly and have to take more breaks. It is a tough choice for couples. You want to get the most bang for your buck and to make sure you get the wedding experience you have always wanted.
But what if you did not have to choose? A DJ/Musician Combo gives you all the upsides. This hybridization takes the best parts about either choice. It creates the perfect combo for a good time.
Have Your Cake and Eat It Too
Even with the combination you can still customize your experience. You may have been looking to have a DJ and were on the fence about the musicians. You can choose a DJ option and have a live band add on. This has your DJ share the stage for a brief time and gives a more well rounded experience. You may have been looking forward to a band, but the variety a DJ can offer. You can go the other direction and book a band with a DJ add on. While the band takes a break, the DJ can keep the party going. The best option is a true hybrid where the DJ is a member of the band. They can create a seamless transition from live music to the artist of your choice. This option blurs the line in the best possible way.
Bang For Your Buck
The combination of a DJ and band can seem daunting. It can be expensive to pay for one so why would I want to pay for both? By choosing a hybrid, you get the biggest bang for your buck. A DJ alone can get repetitive and musicians do not have the versatility. By going hybrid, you get both options without having to pay an insane amount for both. They also tend to be more self contained and knowledgeable about sound design. You will be hiring experienced professionals. They know exactly how to make your wedding sound perfect. You are not just paying for the entertainment. You are paying for the professionalism that accompanies it.
Peace of Mind
The biggest advantage to going hybrid is knowing you are getting exactly what you want. The last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day is if the entertainment will be entertaining. The DJ/Musician Combo gives your guests a great experience without having to sacrifice. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the band… or the DJ… or both!
