Should I hire a DJ, a live band, or just put on a playlist/music videos?

When it comes to a sweet 16, a live band seems a bit out dated; unless of course you manage to score Kanye West or Maroon 5. DJs are a great idea for a party especially if you’re hoping to throw a shindig with lots of dancing. DJs help to get everyone pumped up and can play or remix almost any song you want. They are also usually much cheaper than a live band. However, depending on the type of party you are throwing and your budget, a DJ isn’t always the best choice. If you want to save money and just listen to your favorite songs, make an awesome playlist on your iPod, get some speakers and you’ll be set for the night!
