Live DJ Band FAQs

Answers to the most common questions when looking to hire a hybrid Live DJ band.

What is a Live DJ band?

Unlike most traditional bands, which feature a real acoustic drummer in the line-up to provide the backbeat, Live DJ bands utilise an actual DJ instead. Fusing electronic beats and real live instrumentation allows for a more energetic and upbeat atmosphere than a regular event DJ.

One of the benefits of choosing a hybrid or Live DJ band over a traditional wedding band is the versatility on offer regarding the lineup. Flexibility is one of the strengths of this particular type of band; looking for 3 vocalists to offer those sweet harmonies and a lead guitarist for those epic solos? You can mix and match to your heart’s content without it having any detrimental effect on the overall sound.

What type of events are they suited for?

Corporate and festival events are a perfect match for hybrid DJ bands. However, they’re just at home at a wedding or private function.

Can they work with a sound limiter?

Absolutely! One of the main benefits of hiring a Live DJ band is that they can easily accommodate any sound restrictions that a particular venue may have.

As the band don’t use acoustic drums, which are a significant contributing factor, they can easily manage their sound levels and not upset the venue!

What type of music does a DJ Live act play?

You’ll find that most Live DJ bands tend to focus on more modern dance/chart-oriented music due to the DJ element in the line-up. With that said, there’s always flexibility in most artiste repertoires, and you’ll often find the most beloved party tunes from each classic decade included.

What line-ups do they typically offer?

Flexibility is a key selling point with our Live DJ wedding bands, as you can go for (within reason) as small or as big a lineup as you want. The DJ provides the foundation, and you can add instrumentation and vocals on top as required. Popular options include a DJ/Sax Duo or a line-up featuring Sax and Female and Male Vocals. With the core DJ aspect being the backbone of the operation (typically the drum and bass element), you can add other live instruments for variety, such as violin, sax, guitar or even electric harp. Often these instruments will be lit up with LEDs or lasers to provide an additional wow factor whilst on stage.

Shall I Hire a Band or a DJ?

Choosing between a DJ or live band can be a difficult choice, as both bring something unique to the table. Our live DJ acts remedy that problem by offering both aspects combined, a new concept that is becoming more and more popular. The added bonus is that when the 'band' aren't performing, the DJ can still provide background music, so there are no gaps or breaks in the entertainment.

Would the Band offer Music During their Breaks?

When the band aren’t performing live, they’ll be happy to provide music to keep the party vibes in full swing. You’ll often see two options for this which are a free option or an optional paid service.

In regards to paid service, this would either be the DJ, or a member of the band taking requests on the night Otherwise, the band can run an automated playlist free of charge.

How Long do the Band Typically Play?

2 x 60 minute sets are most common. However, most bands are happy to split this up into 3 x 40 minute sets if required.

For an additional fee, some bands are happy to offer slightly longer performance times, such as 3 x 60 or 3 x 45 minute options.

How Long Does it Take for the Band to Set Up?

On average, you’ll find most DJs and bands take between 60-90 minutes to set up, depending on how easy access is to the venue.

How Much Space will the band need?

It's best to have 1.5 square meters made available per person. One thing to remember is that space is needed in front and to the sides of the band to accommodate their PA, speakers and lighting stands. The more room the band have, the more comfortable they'll be and the better they'll perform. That said, bands will do their very best to fit within whatever space you have to work with.
