Live Wedding Band vs DJ: The Great Debate


Good wedding entertainment is the key to a successful wedding celebration. When you are planning for your wedding, there might be a big debate amongst you, your spouse-to-be, and your friends or family regarding a live wedding band vs a DJ. Any good wedding entertainer can play variety as well as set the proper ambiance you desire for your New York wedding event.




A live wedding band is a one of a kind experience. Seeing music played live is a unique way to let your wedding shine brighter than all the others. East Coast plays all types of music and has wonderful energy and can play the music you want with integrity. A band will give you the human connection that adds emotion to your wedding reception. With East Coast Band, you can rest assured you will have a successful event. We work side by side with our newlyweds to make sure the night is unforgettable.


…or DJ?


The songs will be played by the exact musician but will have no personality and it will be the equivalent of being played in your car. The emcee could also be totally overwhelming for a wedding event and even be a bit cheesy. They have signs, dancers, and silly blow up toys that are best suited for a sweet 16. Also using a DJ can run the risk of their equipment breaking or some other catastrophe you probably don’t even want to think of. When you hire a live band no matter what, the show will go on. East Coast Band provides a one of a kind experience like no other. DJ’s are a dime a dozen and more common, make your wedding party unique and hire East Coast Band for your New York Wedding!
