DJs, Emcees & Entertainment
How did "Ben and Maila" get started?
Maila: Ben and I started working together when I was only 19-years-old in a convention band and something about us just "clicked." Being in the music industry for many years before me, Ben was compelled to take me under his wing and see what kind of magic we would produce together as a duo.
What sets your music apart from other entertainers?
Maila: We're committed to making the event all about the couple. We're keen to the energy between the bride and groom and their guests, and we are constantly matching our song choices to the feel of the event. Rather than creating a set list of songs for each wedding, we go with the flow. If the mood is more romantic, we sing romantic songs. If the guests are lively, we pick up the pace!
What do you love most about your job?
Maila: We LOVE what we do and take it very seriously by staying as current as possible and improving our singing and guitar playing weekly. While we love performing, our focus isn't so much on how good we sound or look but, rather, on making sure the guests are entertained and are having a good time. We truly bring heart to every wedding and we love that we get to witness one of the most precious occasions in the world.
What do you really want brides and grooms to know about "Ben and Maila"?
Maila: If you have a special song you want us to sing at your wedding, and we don't already have it in our repertoire, we will gladly learn that song for your wedding. Just let us know as far in advance as possible so that we can learn the song's melody and words. It takes a lot more than you think to learn a three-minute song!
