Band vs Djay

No doubt about it: Music can make or break a wedding celebration. It's the heart and soul of a reception and can send your guests home with happy feet -- or pained grimaces! The fact that you want to hire a talented band or fleet-fingered DJ is a given and here’s why you should talk to us first! Finding one is a matter of polling friends, surfing online, shopping around with fine-tuned ears, and hopefully a bunch of those are all pointing you to one place, LA Social. What type of entertainment suits your personal taste, budget, space allowances, guest demographics, and killer dance moves best? Keep an open mind, and consider these issues to start your search.


The type of music you choose can set the tone of your weddin. And remember, it's the thing people most often remember (Consider some our happy clients comments). Think about what musical genre best reflects your personalities and inspires the style you want to create: Groovy funk or classy jazz? Acoustic or Rock? The way the music is delivered -- by live band or DJ -- also affects the energy.

Are you a little bit country, while he's a little bit rock and roll? Regardless of whether you choose our band or DJ, you can be sure we play only the most well loved songs, old and new tunes guaranteed to have every one on the dance floor.


Budget is a factor with any wedding, so we’ve got options to look after you either way. Our Dj option is fantastic both musically and budget wise coming in very sharp but still getting a huge party going. If you’d like our live band on a budget no problem, our duo gives you the energy of two highly experience live performers at a super affordable price. This is a great option for smaller weddings. If you’d like to make more of an impact then you can go up to 5 or even 6 piece live band. We handle this with ease all the time.


If space is really tight then our solo DJ is brilliant. With a compact class leading Sound and light system you’ll get a great party with a tiny footprint. That said, our duo and trio options are all used to performing in some of the smallest corners of wedding venues throught Queenstown, Wanaka, Dunedin, Christchurch and Auckland. We can always make it work!
