East Coast Soul Wedding Performance

Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding in Brownfield, ME

August 27, 2016

Ensemble: Stax | Eight Piece

A heartwarming wedding at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, ME where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble found it nearly impossible to say goodbye to this particular group of guests!

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

Preprations for the couple's Big Day

Our planning for the big day began many weeks prior, with the bride and groom expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the big day (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). The bride and groom were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the big day 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. Being prepared for load-in and set-up at any given venue is a critical part of our workflow. 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 asked to provide cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a wonderful chance for the bride and groom to unwind after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by performing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy listening to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more.

Reception

In a lion's share of weddings, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is almost always one of the most unforgettable parts of the big day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this portion of the wedding complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a super brief break, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

our shows often start with older material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get everyone relaxed and dancing with songs they know and love. Artists like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned into performing music by artists like Whitney Houston, Prince, Michael Jackson 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!
