Live Band Or DJ For My Wedding? (Decisions!)

Every couple getting married deserves to have the best entertainment on their wedding day. At Celestial Band we’ve seen so many clients struggle with this one decision – “Should I hire a Live Band or DJ for my wedding?”

The reality is there are pros and cons for each option! As you may know by now the cost of a DJ or group of live musicians can vary greatly across the industry, different groups have different levels of service they can offer you, the couple.

One major consideration for the DJ or live band questions is atmosphere. If you hire our 4 or 5 piece Celestial Band, you’ll have a group of smiling faces arrive at your wedding reception. All ready to party and bring their best to your big day. A DJ is awesome, but usually involves just the one person, plus whatever lighting effects they bring. If you want that extra X factor, you really cant beat the energy that a live band will bring to your special day. At Celestial Band, we’ve never played a wedding no matter how small, where people weren’t dancing.

A common belief of some couples is that a DJ will be able to provide constant upbeat music and get everyone dancing. This is true! However, our musicians at Celestial Band are world class, you’ll be amazed by what we can do. When we bring out our dance sets, we have the dance floor pumping on a whole other level! The combination of our crazy talented drum player with the rest of the band absolutely smashing it means your guests won’t hesitate in making their way for a little boogie.

Some of our favourite dancefloor bangas are:

Mr Brightside – The Killers
Summer of 69 – Bryan Adams
All the Small Things – Blink 182
Everybody – Backstreet Boys
Footloose – Kenny Loggins
Play That Funky Music – Wild Cherry
Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson
The Way You Make Me Feel – Michael Jackson
Valerie – Amy Winehouse
Shake A Tailfeather – The Blues Brothers
Nutbush – Tina Turner
I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney Houston
Dance Monkey – Tones & I
Can’t Stop The Feeling – Justin Timberlake

We could keep going on with another 20 or so awesome songs to make the dancefloor come alive at your wedding, but lets save that for another blog!

If you have the budget and you simply can’t decide between a live band or DJ, you can always have both! Celestial Band has played some weddings recently at Potter’s Reception and Leondra by The Yarra, where the couple hired both us and a DJ for their wedding. We don’t mind fitting in our sets around the DJ’s music! If keeping the cost low is important, you could hire our Celestial Duo, we’ll still provide a great vibe and have your guests up and dancing.
