Live Band: Pros and Cons
There’s nothing like a live band to set the mood at your wedding and get the guests excited, hereby creating a sense of happiness and belonging.
A good band leader will be the master of ceremonies at your reception, interacting with folks on the dance floor, making the guests eager to sway to wondrous music, paying attention to the vibe of the room and finally selecting great music accordingly.
Pros: Live music is, well, exactly what it is- live. You and your guests will experience the pleasure of a live performance.
Anything can happen to raise the excitement level, from an infectious reggae interlude to a moving hip-hop moment.
Cons: Bands can be more expensive than DJs.
Also, no matter how great the band, they can’t have the instruments and professionalism of a standard DJ, who can keep a huge variety of music on hand.
