You can’t beat Maine…

…and you just can’t beat a beautiful wedding in Maine. There are so many incredible areas of this state, with so many different vibes and energies. Right alongside that is a wonderful variety of wedding venues, each with a unique character of their own. For East Coast Soul, coming out of the bustle of the city and heading to the Maine woods or the Maine coast (we’re not picky) is a treat.

A world class destination, right here in New England

There’s a reason people flock from all over the region (and country) to vacation in Maine, and the same rules apply for weddings. It is absolutely beautiful in Vacationland, and there are few areas that can top it’s pristine beauty, class, and history. We encounter more “destination” weddings to Maine than just about any other state in the entire Northeast, and it’s not hard to understand why!

Your wedding, your vision

One of the best parts about Maine weddings is the variety of regions to choose from. You might have a love for the deep Maine woods and see your wedding having the same character — no problem. You might have vacationed along the coast as a kid and want to return to the glory days — awesome. Maine’s got it all, it just depends which exit you take off the highway, and you’ve got a huge array of options at your fingertips.

A band experienced in Maine weddings

Regardless of your vision and plans, we want you guys to have a band that has experience with the region and its way of life. After all, not everyone knows you need to leave an extra two hours to get up I-95 on a summer Saturday (haha) but we do! All jokes aside — it’s experience that contributes most of all to a great performance, and we’re with you guys to help deliver that! Talk to us about how we can get involved!

Testimonials from Maine Weddings

"ECS is unreal. They are SO MUCH MORE than a band. Not only are they all incredibly talented, they are genuinely kind happy people. Our dance floor was lit because of ECS. Torrence has the voice of an angel and Yuki got in the crowd- people went wild. Do not choose anyone else!! "

"So good!!! These guys are so f*king good. Honestly, they absolutely killed it - our guests are still talking about how great the band was. They are responsible and responsive in the planning phase, they are very talented musicians, and they know how to party."

"East Coast Soul is hands down the best wedding band out there. Their vibe, energy, professionalism and most of all, performance were outstanding! From the moment we chose to work with them, everything ran smoothly. It was a very straightforward process and they worked with us on everything from the ceremony through the reception. We had a string quartet at our ceremony and it really made all the difference. It was beautiful. We had a few of the band members play at the cocktail hour and the vibe was perfect. I can't say enough about the Stax Ensemble at the reception. From the moment they started playing through the end of the night, the dance floor was packed. Their song choices and performance were absolutely amazing and the night was everything we could have imagined and more. Months after the wedding we are still getting compliments on the band and have people telling us they were the best wedding band ever. Highly recommend this fabulous group. Thank you so much, ECS!!!"

"The BEST wedding band! Not only was the performance truly incredible - they were also super professional and easy to work with. WORTH EVERY PENNY! We had seen a different East Coast Soul ensemble the year prior and made it a priority for our wedding plans. We booked a different ensemble with East Coast Soul than what we had seen before but it didn't matter - they both were OUTSTANDING. The song list to the skill of the performers really exceeded all expectations. People are still talking about how incredible this band was."

"The best wedding band! We were blown away by how great ECS was -- working with them to plan the music for our wedding was so easy and they were really accommodating with all of our special requests. We booked the Stax ensemble and opted for a 6-piece band, and they were fantastic. The mix of music was just what we wanted, and the performance by the vocalists really upped the energy level with our guests. We barely stopped dancing all night and our guests raved about the band. We had them help with the mic/sound for our outdoor ceremony as well, and that was also super easy and smooth. We would highly recommend booking ECS!"

"When you are a destination bride, choosing vendors is stressful and nerve wracking! In selecting East Coast Soul, I basically went off of online reviews, YouTube videos and conversations with the band director (?). I am so glad we chose them and COULD NOT have been happier! Not only was the band director incredibly easy to communicate with, flexible and reliable, the band was outstanding! Everything went according to the questionnaire we filled out a few weeks before and they were lively and high energy. We had a small wedding (75 guests) and I was worried about the dance floor being "dead" the whole time. This was not the case. East Coast Soul did an incredible job keeping everyone dancing!"

"East Coast Soul provided such a wonderful evening! On the evening of the wedding, we were over the moon. Sneaking a listen of the jazz before we were introduced, we were blown away by their talent. While we were so caught in the moments throughout the evening, listening to ECS serenade us was breath taking. People asked all night where we found them and during brunch were stunned by the 'concert' we treated them to the night before. We were so stunned by their flexibility and pure talent throughout the night. I so wish we could have found a way to have them play longer- it was just PERFECT. We hope to attend another wedding with ECS because I cannot wait to be a guest at one of their events and have no responsibilities, but to enjoy the concert and dance floor."

"East Coast Soul was the best choice we could have made to make our wedding the success it was! The entire night was a huge dance party, everyone out of their seats just having the best time ever - all thanks to ECS! We had a couple of impromptu speeches and a few twists and turns in the structure of the night, and the band handled them seamlessly - as if it was all planned that way. We had some specific requests around not playing certain verses in select songs, changing up some words here and there and they nailed every request! Additionally, Art was incredibly responsive, which made the planning process super easy and stress-free. We'd highly, highly recommend East Coast Soul if you want an awesome wedding band to make your night amazing! "
