Tips on Choosing a Band and/or DJ for Your Wedding:

  • VIP - Remember to get everything you discuss in writing in a contract signed by both you and the band/DJ.
  • Are they available for your date?
  • What type of music do they provide, or what is their signature sound or style?
  • How many band members -- and what type of ensembles may you choose from?
  • How long have they played together for weddings as the same group? (i.e., you do not want a new lead singer for the group to be introduced at your wedding!)
  • In case you want extras, what ensemble options would they recommend, and how much extra would that be? (i.e., if you want to add a female vocalist, or horns)
  • How long have they been a DJ, and how many weddings have they done?
  • Will they play requests?
  • Will they MC your event, or do you need to hire someone separate to MC?
  • If there is something not on their song list, will they learn it and/or buy it?
  • When they learn a song, or have to buy it, will this be included in their fee, or an additional cost to you?
  • Will they agree to your "do not play" list?
  • Do they have liability insurance, (your reception location may require this)?
  • What kind of equipment do they use, and what is their technical expertise?
  • Do they have back-up equipment on hand in case of an emergency?
  • Does the band leader or the DJ personally MC your reception, and if you prefer quiet, will they do this?
  • How much do they charge, what is included in the charge, and how much is overtime? (i.e., do they have a wireless microphone for toasts, or will everyone have to go to the DJ/band area to speak?)
  • How much time do they need for setup, and what are their setup requirements?
  • Bands normally require breaks, how many breaks do they take, and how long are their breaks?
  • Does the band have CDs to play through their sound system for breaks?
  • What is their appearance like, and what do they wear at weddings? (i.e., if there are choices, what do you prefer?)
