It’s one of the biggest decisions any bride or groom faces: Band or DJ? And you thought picking the perfect partner to have and to hold as long as you both shall live was challenging.
The good news? Unlike finding your (one) soul mate, you can have both—a band and a DJ. They actually go together like, well, like you and your other half. Stop stressing about the music or feeling like you have to go with a string quartet when what you really want to do is get down to your favorite Black Eyed Peas or Dixie Chicks song (or even Britney—no judgment).
The reality is that a wedding band is a great thing and can be the buttercream icing on your three-tiered cake. Whether you prefer the unbelievable variety of internationally renowned 10-piece band Sound Connection who can do it all from classic Otis Redding to (truly) current Top 40, the high energy of Rhythm6 who blends young talent with incredible stage presence, or the jazzy appeal of SoundNation with their horn section and percussionist, there’s a band to suit every bride or groom’s theme, style and of course signature dance moves.
The Heart Beat of Your Big Day
Music sets the tone, literally, for the most important day of your life. Do you envision swaying along to the soulful sounds of Marquise with a generous peppering of soul, disco and pop in between those special dances? Or maybe PopCultureStrings is more your speed, a dazzling group that can go purely classical with violins, viola and a cello or shake things up while still tipping their hats to tradition by adding a piano and other instruments. Dream of getting to the altar to Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi or Katy Perry on strings? They can make it happen.
Still can’t decide? Have it all. How about PopCultureStrings at the ceremony for a one of a kind rendition of Bruno Mars’ “I Think I Wanna Marry You” or the classic Canon in D Major for the walk down the aisle? At the reception, top DJs and MCs announce the newly betrothed and get the party started with hand-picked music during cocktail hour. As the bubbly is flowing, toasts are being made and dinner is served, your band of choice kicks things into high gear.
This is the beginning of your happily ever after—and the day you’ve dreamt of your entire life deserves the ideal soundtrack. And if that soundtrack happens to include a mix of Mozart, Michael Jackson and Abba? That’s just proof your fairytale is one of a kind.
