wed / how to find a wedding dj or band

1. Look beyond wedding websites and keep an eye out for a great DJ in a club or a fun band at a work or industry event. 
2. Ask family and friends for recommendations. If you need more than one musical group (ie a string quartet for the ceremony/cocktail hour and a DJ for the reception), it can be really great to work with an agency. 
3. Listen to demos and go to a live show if you can.
4. Meet with one or two options and choose someone who you feel will do a great job and create the atmosphere you want. 
5. Read the contract carefully before you sign!
6. Don’t forget to go over a definitely play and do not play list with your band leader or DJ. Make sure they have the timeline too.
