Frequently Asked Questions
Ok so you're wondering if you should have a Live Band &/or a DJ for your event - Either or Both....it's going to be awesome!
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we have been asked when people are considering this fantastic option:
What's the benefit of having a Live Band and a DJ? Can't having just one offer the same type of entertainment?
Music sets the atmosphere for any occasion & can make the difference between your event being a huge success or not. Having a live band will offer a fun, interactive, and entertaining aspect to your event. You can choose to have some live Jazz played during your cocktail hour or a full on rock-pop band that will get your guest out on the dance floor. But what about when the cocktail hour or when the band takes breaks. Having a DJ will allow you to choose what type of background music you would like during the cocktail hour, when the party is underway & the band has your guests out on the dance floor, the DJ will ensure your guests stay on the dance floor. The DJ will fill the bands break times with hits from across the ages or whatever song choices you would like to hear. Remember iHeart Entertainment will work with you to ensure that the entertainment you want is what you get & more!
