Band/DJ Suggestions

We still haven't decided on the music yet for our wedding. My fiancee wants a band but I think we are going to have a hard time finding one we like without seeing them. We also can't have a huge band, because our venue isn't that big. Does anyone have a recommendation for a smaller band (5-6 people)? I could also use recommendations for DJs if we can't find a band. Thanks!

    We LOVED our DJ.  I think I'm the only one on this board who has used him so far (he came highly recommended by our venue) but I can't recommend him enough.

    Honestly I don't know - DJ was included in our package price and we had could either choose him or Knight Sounds.  Sorry!  He's really fantastic though!

    We used DJ Godzilla and he was great! He said we were one of the wildest groups he's ever had and he was dancing with us and taking his own pictures of us, lol!

    He is super affordable and he really went with the flow. Even when I handed him someone's Ipod and asked him to play songs that were more British which I knew he wouldn't have he didn't have a problem with it, and when I had him play our final song (a traditional Scottish song) he didn't mind at all.

    And then when our crazy group started chanting "one more tune", he played three more. He was fab!

    Did you give him a "must play" and a "do not play" list? Is he willing and able to download songs on he spot?

    Didn't give him any lists but I know he can download on the spot because my nephew had him download some British rap and he did that.

     I previously asked him if it would be a problem to play any music we brought along and he said it wouldn't. He is a really easy going guy and when we thought the music was a bit heavy on rap we told him and he changed it immediately.

    i will NOT recommend Dream Entertainment.  Whatever you do...do NOT go w/ them.  They are horrible!!  The worst people to deal with.  I was told that we had won a $200 voucher from the GVR Bridal Show, and realized later they called everyone that had filled their little form (because one of the girls I work with, also got the same call!!)  You can see more terrible reviews about them on weddingwire.com and yelp.com.

    <------ DJ Godzilla bride, too

    He's been fantastic to work with so far.  Great pricing and super flexible (said he'd take my DNP list).  I can't wait to work with him the day of!
