Live Music & DJs
Live Band at The New Yorker Hotel
Back in the day, Live Bands & Musicians were THE THING for any type of Wedding or Event. But since the 1990's there has been an increasing changeover to using DJs.
This trend is partly an effect of a dropping economy. Since people have less disposable income, they want more for their money, and when it comes down to it- DJs are cheaper than employing an entire Band. (We think technology had something to do with it also.) And of course there are still plenty of people who request Live Bands instead of DJs.
But the latest Trend that we are LOVING is DJ/Live Musician Hybrid.
We have been supplying a DJ/MC and some live musicians, such as an Electric Violinist, Saxophonist & Percussionist to chime in. Its an exciting mixture between the two. The DJ spins the same way he would normally, and the Live Musicians chime in and stroll around the dance floor interacting with guests.
Here are some pictures from our Events with Live Musicians-

Now if you'd rather stick with a Live Band, or just a Steel Drum Percussionist for a Cocktail Hour we can supply that too. We have everything from a 9 Piece to a 3 Piece Jazz Band, or even a Single Pianist to a Beatles Cover Band (like below).
