no;These are the kids who will grow up, have their own weddings, and again hire DJs. Just noticing it.
Not here in the land of Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, etc. They just don't care for cover bands as much. They get their fill of other people's music from DJs and karaoke. They want originals from live bands.sadly the children of today know little and care less about live music
Some of it probably has to do with the fact that many of the performers in these wedding bands is about 45-50... I don't think I've seen a wedding band where that hasn't been the case. I just think there's something of an inherent cheesiness in these types of groups, and I don't necessarily mean that in a negative way. But some people are put off by it and others aren't. I was at wedding at a nice country club a few years ago, and they hired a band. The band was very good and fit in very well in that environment. But the families in the wedding were both wealthy, and it was kind of a "blue-blood" crowd. A lot of people are put off by that sort of thing.Sigh.
I had a great band at my wedding. Full horn section with dance moves, the works. My oldest daughter wanted a DJ.
Same here. Zero call for cover bands. At least not in bars/clubs. Not that original music bars are in high demand. But, there's a solid few. The rest are all DJ based or just background jams.Not here in the land of Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, etc. They just don't care for cover bands as much.
