Do you like a more elegant, classy sound, or a more hip, edgy sound?

I was about to post that I enjoy A Team a lot. Yitzy Schwartz is a musical genius, and I loved his 2nd Dance albums.

But I'm far from an expert at bands. There are people who do bookings, and if you find someone recommended, they can give you unbiased advice.

Blue Melody is top class. Spend 10 minutes on YouTube looking at each one of the recommendations. In the end of the day, at your own Simcha, you're probably not going to be thinking about the music, so any of these options are more than amazing.

Was just thinking that myself. Had a one man band and a singer and it seemed as freilich as any simcha I've been to.
But I'm just an OOT hick I guess. :D

I'm a musician so I definitely enjoyed the music. A full band is definitely going to be a world of a difference than a OMB. But if we're talking about the specific most popular bands, especially when.many of them have the same musicians, it's not going to matter.

As an aside, what will make a difference is dealing with a mensch in the pre-wedding prep, although probably not the deciding factor for most

I was racking my brain trying to figure out what it means to have a 7-10 piece wedding band, and was wondering if thereís some sort of nestling ring that Iím unaware of thatís all the rage.

Not OOT, Chabad. Wedding bands are getting bigger in CH, on average, but one man is still very common.

I love these orchestras. There are so many producing phenomenal music, and I love listening to them all. I listen to them every single day on YouTube. But for a wedding I'd go OMB every time. Concerts are great. Weddings are great. Weddings should not be concerts.
