I am looking for any suggestions for live music for our wedding. We won’t have a ton of space so about 3 people. And we don’t have a ton of money to spend. I have talked to a couple who would play 4 hours for $800, which is great but we aren’t loving the type of music they play, lots of Jazz, Swing, 80’s.
So if anyone has any ideas for bands, or even a good DJ I would really appreciate it. Just getting some names is the most helpful thing! Thanks

Wish I could help but our DJ isn’t ‘southern maine’, there is a much greater selection down there so I’m sure you can find someone great, plus you are close enough that you could probably use Boston vendors! I’ve heard good things about ‘Radiance’ out of Boston, Sorry I couldn’t be more of a help!

Seaglass, this might be a little late, and I’m not even sure if my band is what you’re looking for…
We hired a 4-piece cover band from the Augusta area — Jones’n, for $1200 for 4 hours — might be a little more $$ than what you were looking for, but we thought this was *extremely* reasonable for a 4-piece band. They have been amazing to deal with so far, and they’ve responded to all of our requests very quickly and with an answer that we wanted to hear, i.e. they’re happy to learn a few songs for our wedding reception for the 1st dance, etc. They have excellent reviews online on gigmasters (but we didn’t book them through gigmasters due to an extra $300 in booking fees).
