Tips For Hiring a Luxury Wedding Band in Los Angeles

Searching for A Live Band for Your Wedding

Your wedding date has been set and the excitement is starting to set in. You’ve probably started your “to-do” list (and even given one to your fiancé) and of course at the top of one of those lists, if not both, is the word “Band!” While a luxury wedding band isn’t the perfect choice for every wedding in L.A. and everyone wonders “how much do wedding music bands cost?”, when you want true class and professionalism featured front and center, MJ Entertainment is the one to call.

Whether you’re in L.A., Orange County, or Malibu, finding the right band for your wedding can be both fun and exhausting, especially when you’re looking for pure professionals. Of course, having a single professional DJ cover your wedding is less expensive and may be just what you’re looking for, but the features, options, and entertainment value of having a live performance from a luxury wedding band is beyond reproach.

As we all know in L.A. you generally get what you pay for, especially when it comes to entertainment. However, this is where MJE stands apart from the rest. With wedding packages starting around $5,500 and additional features available upon request, you get a wedding band that goes above and beyond expectations.

Be wary of so-called professionals that offer steep discounts, and of course, always take the time to check references and reviews. Los Angeles has numerous listings for available wedding bands and the last thing that you want is to hire someone that just doesn’t deliver upon their previous client’s expectations. Saving money on your wedding with a less expensive alternative can seem worthwhile, but may end up costing you more with crushed expectations and disappointment on a day you can’t do over.

A Wedding Band that Fits Your Budget

While not everyone wants live bands for wedding receptions (and the cost of a wedding band vs DJ can be a big factor) the fact remains that live music tends to spur more dancing and crowd involvement, which in turn means more fun at your wedding. The cost of a wedding music band will depend greatly on your desires and needs but with options available to suit any style or fancy, MJ Entertainment is a logical choice for your luxury wedding band.

With the MJ Entertainment Classic Experience starting at $5500, you get DJ music for the wedding ceremony, live acoustic guitar + vocals during cocktail hour, a DJ for 1 hour during dinner, and a 6-piece band that includes both male and female vocals, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, keys, bass and drums for 3 hours at the reception. We even provide pre-recorded music for the band’s breaks.

At $6200 is our MJ Entertainment Signature Experience with live acoustic guitar and vocals during the wedding ceremony, acoustic guitar and vocal covers during cocktail hour, a 6-piece reception dance band that includes rhythm guitar, female and male vocals, lead guitar, bass, drums, and keys. All lead by your choice of our signature MJE notable front man or woman and during the band’s breaks the MJE Reception DJ provides music.

We also have Fitch and the Fog, a fully customizable 4 – 8 piece rock n’ roll band that plays contemporary hits blended with Jazz, Blues, and R&B standards and they are available for all events including weddings. You can also have a fantastic 3-piece band and DJ with Gold Standard that combines jazz and pop vocals with live drums, sax, flute and a DJ, giving them a unique “Remixed Jazz” sound that is a danceable jazz/electro/soul hybrid that draws influences from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Bruno Mars, and Daft Punk.

While your exact choices will determine your final price for live wedding music bands, MJ Entertainment will be happy to customize a package to meet your wedding wishes. Contact us today to get unparalleled live wedding band entertainment for you and your guests.
