5 Benefits of Live Musicians at Your Wedding
With the prevalence of DJs in the wedding industry many couples do not utilize live musicians as they were the staple of entertainment; however, there are many advantages to hire professional musicians for your wedding.
1 – Versatility – Whether it be classical, jazz, funk, blues, country, gospel, pop, rock or dozens of other genres, professional musicians have trained for years on their craft and can add that atmosphere at your wedding with their playing.
2 – Memorable – Hiring live music provides a more emotional experience to your big wedding day and to your guests. Nothing resonates louder than hearing your favorite melodies on an instrumental piano or quartet as you walk down the aisle, or a live guitarist playing your first dance at the reception.
3 – Interactive – Live musicians can interact with your guests and loved ones making it a fantastic entertainment experience for your wedding day.
4 – More Affordable – compared to other avenues of entertainment, live musicians are more reasonably priced for couples who are on a stricter budget for entertainment.
5 –Fun! – We musicians love to have fun and play! Being a musician, nothing provides more passion and joy then to share our talents with couples on their special day. We all love to entertain and that emotional connection we provide through our performances will make your wedding even more special.
