DJs vs. Live Bands: Which Should You Choose for your Event

Luxury Yacht Charters for Events in NYC

Choosing the music for your next big event can be very challenging. You want to leave people talking about how much fun they had that night—not how empty the dance floor was. So rather than trusting a relative with a playlist, hire professional musical entertainment to ensure your night is magical.

The only question is, do you go with a DJ or a live band? Let’s take a look at the advantages of each!

Pros of hiring a DJ

For starters, a DJ can play just about any song you want, so it’s much easier to find a groove that all your guests will like. They’ll also take up less space than an entire band, meaning more room for breaking out those moves on the dance floor!

Because a DJ requires fewer breaks than a band (whose members have been exerting themselves for hours), you won’t have to worry about a lull in music either. It’s also worth mentioning that a DJ tends to be a more affordable option.

Pros hiring a live band

Everyone loves watching a live band perform. They’re fun, energetic, and will make your celebration impossible to forget! Your guests may not remember every little detail about your event, but they will remember how the band jumped around, interacted with the crowd, and made it feel like you were at your own private concert.

Plus, you’ll have a variety of different options to fit any style wedding and set the right mood—like a guitar soloist, Jazz trio, stand-up bass and guitar, or even just a percussionist to accompany a DJ!

No matter what type of event you’re hosting, you want to do everything you can to make it fun and memorable for you guests.

Regardless of whether you choose to hire a DJ or live band for your next event, the team at Metro Yacht Charters will take care of the details and ensure you have an unforgettable experience.
