Book venue – check. Choose menu – check. Organise decorations – check. Book DJ – hmmmm, maybe not?
A growing number of couples are rethinking a DJ for their wedding and investigating the possibility of live music as an alternative.
Live music is special
How many times in a day, week, month, year do you encounter live music? Maybe once a week you might walk past a busker, or you might get along to a concert a couple of times during the year. Put simply, live music is still uncommon in daily life for most people and that makes it special. Music sets the tone for your event and can enhance and solidify your theme. Whether you choose live music or a DJ, the right music can take your wedding from so-so to spectacular and leave you and your guests with happy memories for many years to come.
Live music is celebratory
Live music has an energy to it that makes it perfect for celebrations. A great musician can read the room and change the pace as required to get people up and moving about in a way that a set playlist off your iPod can never hope to mimic.
And when it comes to your wedding day, think about your first dance as husband and wife. Do you want to be shuffling around to the same version of the song that you can hear any day of the week on the radio, or do you want to be grooving to a special performance that is just for you at that perfect moment in time?
Live music has an undeniable energy
The same song played by a DJ or by a live musician can be a completely different experience. Live music has an energy that is spine tingling – it is literally alive and our bodies respond to that energy. If you want to get your guests up on the dance floor and having a great time, live music is hard to beat for creating that party atmosphere.
