East Coast Soul Wedding Performance

Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding in Brownfield, ME

August 27, 2016

Ensemble: Stax | Eight Piece

An unbelievable wedding at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, ME where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble had a night to remember!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be brought to join this beautiful couple for their stunning Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding in Brownfield, ME.

Preprations for the couple's Big Day

Our preparations for the wedding began well ahead, with the bride and groom sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). The bride and groom were heavily involved in this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Brownfield, ME and carried out our normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for Stone Mountain Arts Center weddings. Our process for loading in and setting up at any given venue is a big part of our preparation process. This is a part of the day that we take seriously, spending extra time to avoid rushing, and ensuring our gear is properly tuned for the room.

Ceremony

In this case, East Coast Soul was not involved with couple's ceremony, with those arrangements having already been taken care of.

Cocktail Hour

As is often the case, East Coast Soul was requested to perform cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a wonderful chance for the bride and groom to relax after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by performing a variety of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Reception

In a majority of receptions, East Coast Soul is asked to provide MC services for the formal portions of the celebrations. This Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The newly married couple's first dance is traditionally one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this portion of the evening complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul performances often start with older material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get folks up on the dance floor with songs they know and love. Artists like Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then moved into performing music by artists like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Prince and more. Finally, we ended the night performing contemporary material that everyone could sing along with.

Guests danced non-stop from beginning to end, and we limited our breaks to ensure people had as much time to dance as possible.

Thanks so much to this beautiful couple for having us at their beautiful August wedding at Stone Mountain Arts Center!
