About

We are a versatile, professional, and experienced group that can play many different styles of music to suit your needs. Our trio is the best sound for the size and style of an intimate occasion, for a dancing crowd, we add our drummer to form a quartet. We can also add piano, sax, and/or trumpet to suit your taste and budget. We work with some of the finest musicians in Maine which translates to a great sound! Chris Poulin, our lead guitar player, is also a trained classical guitarist who has provided ceremony music for many a beautiful event.

We have a great sound system which we can hook up to your iPod, laptop, or CD player. This can save you a lot of money if you want both a DJ and a live band. You can put together a mix for this if you want. As an example, we can provide classical guitar for the ceremony, some nice jazz for the cocktail hour, a dance set of swing jazz, and/or funk, pop, and reggae, and DJ capabilities after that.

Our base fee for a wedding is $400 per musician. This covers the first 3 hours, after that we charge $75 per hour, per musician. We travel anywhere in Maine. Will travel further for an added fee.

If there is a specific song you want us to learn for a special dance, we charge $30 for the first song we learn. The price after that is $40 per song. We do request a minimum of one month lead time to learn new songs. You can also pick a song from our song list or plug in your music player for special dances.

We require a written contract signed by both parties with a retainer of 1/2 the total in advance. The deposit is non-refundable should you have to cancel.

Thank you for considering us. We hope we can help you celebrate your special day!

Amazing Sound!

We had a corporate event at the historical society in Bar Harbor, and this group was the perfect touch for the event. The sound was great and the members kept complimenting the ambiance and sound. Highly recommend!

Talented, Friendly and Versatile

New Shades of Blue (Juliane and Chris) played for our 50th Anniversary celebration. We enjoyed their music for dining and dancing, their pleasant interaction with a multi-generational group, and their welcome of our guitar-playing son to sit in with them. Highly recommended.
