...are different - they are risk-takers, partiers, gamblers.
This is why we think we play the best weddings in Southern California and beyond, because the people that hire bands are awesome! They want their weddings to be special and they are willing to take a little risk for the chance that their wedding will be something truly inspiring!
These people lay it in on the line because they know a band is going to make their wedding different. Knowing full well that they are taking a chance, they opt for the live band. They know there is a chance the band might play out of tune, play too loud during dinner, or worse yet, forget how to play their first dance. The band that had a cool vibe in the video might turn out to be really cheesy. The singer can't sing and it's the drummer's first gig. People that hire bands know that these are all possibilities, but they do it anyway and here is why, because it's who they are. They love music and they know there is nothing like a live band.
There are obvious upsides to hiring a DJ - the main upside being they can play any song ever recorded. Yes, a DJ might play the wrong songs, make cheesy announcements, get your guests doing the chicken dance, or play a polka, but it can only get so bad...bands are a way bigger risk!
So our hats are off to you! Ninety-five percent of you didn't hear us play live before you invited us to play your wedding. You read our endless reviews and wondered if all of our previous clients were crazy, but you went for it! You hired us for what will likely be the most important day of your life. Your grandma was there and your best friends were there and you had to trust us to be respectful and to do what we said we would do!
We have to hand it to you, you know how to throw a party!
