Every event can benefit from the right music accompaniment, and at Metropol Banquet, we offer the highest quality sound system available. We understand that a poor quality or faulty sound can ruin the entire event. At Metropol, you can even choose to match the sound with our multi-color light system for extra special effects and mood enhancement. As far as choosing the right type of music for your event, here are some tips that you may find helpful.
Live, DJ, or Pre-Recorded Music?
Begin with deciding the source of your music. Metropol can accommodate any method of your choosing. You have several choices and each offers pros and cons:
Live Band Pros:
- A live band with our state of the art sound system at Metropol is a fantastic combination.
- Many believe that a live band can increase the energy level of those who attend the event.
- Your event attendees can interact with the band and request songs.
Live Band Cons:
- A live band can cost more than pre-recorded music or a DJ.
- Band members will need to take breaks throughout the evening and during those times you will either have to substitute with pre-recorded music or have silence.
- Depending on the experience level of the band, they may not have a large enough repertoire to play songs throughout the evening without repeating some.
- The band may not be experienced with playing the type of music you wish to hear during your event.
- A DJ can interact with the crowd and respond to song requests if they have that music with them in their library.
- As with a band, a DJ can increase the energy level of those who attend the event.
- Our state of the art sound system at Metropol can showcase the music the DJ plays.
- As with a band, the DJ will need to take breaks throughout the evening and during those times you will either have to substitute with pre-recorded music or have silence.
- A DJ will cost more than pre-recorded music.

Pre-Recorded Music Pros:
- Pre-Recorded music will cost less than a DJ or a live band.
- Our state of the art sound system at Metropol will maximize the quality of your pre-recorded music.
- You can choose the music to perfectly match the nature of your event, and even customize the songs to reflect special memories.
Pre-Recorded Music Cons:
- Pre-Recorded music may not generate the same level of energy as a live band or a DJ.
- You or a friend or family member will have to prepare the pre-recorded music in advance of the event. Choosing the music and collecting it to burn on a CD or other digital source can be time-consuming. (Tip: make a copy so that if the original is defective or breaks, you will have a spare.)
- You or a friend or family member will have to monitor the music during the event to start and stop the music or address any issues you encounter.
