All or Nothing At All

Here's a new one:

I was speaking to a someone I know earlier this evening. He's marrying off a son soon and we were talking about the music decision for the affair. Apparently, his son felt strongly that having a band was an all or nothing proposition. In other words, the band needed to have at least five musicians, or else he'd have to have a one-man-band. Since having five pieces wasn't a possibility for whatever reason, they'd hired a one-man-band over a four-piece group.

I find it hard to understand the logic and I've not heard of this rationale for choosing a one-man-band before. Has anyone else heard similar logic?
