DJ/Band Hybrid (n.)- referring to wedding entertainment, a chance to have your cake and eat it too, best of both worlds, uniquely balanced combination of live music & DJ.
The band for people that love the music, energy and aesthetics of artists like The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons & Pomplamoose (with an occasional Irish flare), but who still want their favorite artists and sing-a-long classics performed at their wedding. With the Owls & Lions Band/DJ Hybrid, it’s all in the balance!
A touring original band that found instant success performing at Ceremonies & Cocktail hours, it didn’t take long for MC/DJ/Singer/Guitarist Jay Della Valle to start combining Owls & Lions Guitar/Violin act with his already established and award-winning DJ/MC services. The result was an effective “best of both worlds” combination involving quality live music and DJ. Owls & Lions brings an original approach to your favorite celebratory songs.
