So the wedding planning is in full gear and we are having trouble finding the right entertainment.. Her parents want a band, we want a dj, so we've decided on getting a DJ/MC with a Jazz trio.. Problem is, we've visited a few, but cannot settle on one because none have been perfect. Anyone have any recommendations? Wedding is in Springfield, NJ, next early spring.

You can check out the acts at Shanghai Jazz in Madison, Cecil's in West Orange, and Trumpets in Montclair. Keep an eye on the calendars at each place and check out the bands you're interested in. You'll be able to hear them play live and enjoy a lovely night out at the same time. :)
