Band Vs Wedding DJ for your Reception.
Social

Being one of the biggest Indian DJ and Wedding entertainers in Houston, Texas we cater to numerous fusion weddings with a mix of Indian music as well as American Top 40, Hip Hop, and Dance music. Wedding Bands are not as prominent in the South Asian wedding industry as it is in the American wedding industry but we do so often work together with live bands for many of our fusion wedding clients. The DBI team has done wedding events in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, New Orleans, New York, Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, California cities LA, Fresno, San Fransisco, and of course our home base of Houston. We have also performed for several destination wedding events in Cancun, Jamaica, Puerto Vallarta, and Hawaii.
Being a wedding DJ, When wedding clients ask me my opinion of having a wedding Band vs DJ, of course I am a little biased. Obviously having both would be the ultimate crowd pleasing ambiance providing the variety of sounds that could appeal to all genres. We have performed alongside American and Indian bands and know exactly how to coordinate the music back and forth for a seamless music experience.
But of course with the budget in mind having both a band and DJ is not always realistic.

Here is some more insight provided by theknot.com

Vibe:
The type of music you choose can set the tone of your wedding and solidify a theme. And remember, it’s the thing people most often remember. Think about what musical genre best reflects your personalities and inspires the ambiance you want to create: The way the music is delivered — by live band or DJ — also affects the ambiance. The type of music you choose may dictate the choice too. Always keep in mind when a band performs your favorite dance floor hit, it will be their rendition of it, chances are not sounding much like the original. If you are a fan of having your music sound as authentically intact as possible we think you have answered whether you would want to have a live band or Wedding DJ.

Space:
Don’t get your heart set on an 8-piece salsa band before you check whether the reception site has any restrictions on the number of musicians and pieces of equipment you may bring in, and whether there are any electrical power supply or noise limitations. Also, keep in mind a band will always take up much more space than a dj and will almost always require to be setup on a stage.

DJ:
Don’t fear the DJ: The days of disco fever and flashing lights are gone. Today’s disc jockeys are artists in their own right, offering balanced and eclectic mixes of musical styles for all ages. Plus, the songs played will sound exactly as you remember them, encouraging sing-alongs and improvisation. And, depending on the amount of equipment a DJ brings, she’ll take up less dance floor real estate and can be relocated with relative ease.

Pros: If there are a dozen songs you’re dying to hear at your wedding, it likely won’t be a problem for your DJ to find each track. Also, DJs are generally less expensive than bands. A DJ with a charismatic stage presence and excellent emcee skills can really set the mood and keep the party going.

Cons: On the opposite end of the spectrum, a DJ with a less-than stellar personality can be a party-killer. Also, improvisation is tough if, say, your dad is dragging behind tempo on the father-daughter dance or your nieces and nephews decide to crash the chicken dance.

Before You Sign:
Know that all professionals should be open to your likes and dislikes. Give them your personal request list, songs they must, and, perhaps more importantly, a do-not-play list. Worried that you’ll hear the “Macarena” at your once-in-a-lifetime event?
