We are so happy with our decision to hire Plush! Hiring a band was a big decision and we are very happy with our choice. Andrew and Geoff were very professional and easy to work with throughout the entire process. From communication, to mic set up, to performance, Plush was very professional and on top of everything. We had a close friend play our cocktail hour and Plush was so great in coordinating and working with him. They even let him join them for an impromptu song during the reception, and it was so unforgettable!! We danced all night and all of our guests had so much fun! All evening long we got so many compliments on the band, and we're still getting compliments! Plush was such a joy to work with and we are so happy with our decision to hire them. They were such a big part of making our night so amazing and our experience with them was so great!Sent on 09/14/2019
Plush's reply:Thank you so much, Amanda and Jimmy!!! The band had an AMAZING time celebrating with you both in Bar Harbor. It was a perfect night. You two were so easy to work with, and I know that can pose a challenge from a thousand miles away, but you were quick with emails and hopped on a skype call with us and it really help assure the wedding went as smoothly as possible, so we thank YOU as well for that! And we might add that having Troy join us on stage was also a highlight for US that we won't forget either! The entire evening was just so much fun! Congrats again to you both and next time you're in Maine, look us up!

We are so thrilled we hired Plush for our wedding. They provided the music for our ceremony and reception and truly exceeded all our wildest expectations. Their sound as a ten-person band -- including four powerhouse vocalists -- is just awesome. The dance floor was packed all night and two months after our wedding, we're still hearing raves about Plush from our guests. They were pretty much also held hostage at the end of the night with a nonstop chant of “one more song”...sorry again, guys (and thanks for indulging us with a couple encores).Sent on 09/22/2019
Two more shout-outs: first, to their awesome sound guy. Sound levels are one of those things you don't think about until it's way too loud, and he kept the volume JUST right. And, on the logistics side, Plush was probably the most organized and responsive of all our wedding vendors - super on top of everything. There's no doubt this is a well-seasoned team, both leading up to the wedding and onstage.
Plush's reply:Thank you so much, Annelise! Your wedding day seemed pretty much perfect, and I know right down the line, from Stew during the ceremony, to the entire band after we got done, members were telling us how much fun they had that day! I'll make sure to tell Cam that you appreciated his work keeping the volume at the ideal level - that is something we take extremely seriously and talk about weekly, so it's really wonderful to have that pointed out and I'm sure he'll appreciate it! You guys are awesome and we're so glad we were able to be a part of your special day. Please keep in touch and hope we'll run into you and Jeremy again soon!

HIRE PLUSH - Then invite us to the party
We gave Andrew and Geoff a very specific request when it came to our wedding... we want to RAGE. They did NOT disappoint!Sent on 07/23/2019
But before we get to that... let me say, the time and attention to detail that Andrew and Geoff devote to couples BEFORE the wedding is really special. We went out for a drink with them a few months before the wedding, during that time they got to know us, understand what we like - and they gave us a recommended flow for the wedding itself. SO USEFUL, as it helped us plot out what would happen when during the reception. And beyond that - they were incredibly responsive and just really nice guys. Our first meeting with them made the wedding feel "real" and I'm certain that they time they spent getting to know us made for a better wedding day experience for us and our guests.
On the day of the wedding - Plush could not have been better. We still have friends and family telling us it was one of the "top wedding bands" they've ever heard, and others saying they are "Plush superfans!"
The magic of Plush is that they don't do a prepared set list, they read the crowd, and play from their HUGE selection of songs whatever feels right based on the energy of the crowd. Our guests LOVED it. There is a part of me that feels badly because I spent so much time on the dance floor... and not enough mingling.
In addition to being extremely talented musicians (who know how to work the crowd) - they have a dedicated audio guy who manages the sound in the venue - so while we certainly rocked out - it was never overwhelmingly loud, people who weren't on the dance floor still enjoyed easy conversations.
The bottom line is - HIRE THIS BAND. The vocalists are amazing, the horns section is epic, and the experience of working with them is incredible. Then, invite us, we want to rage with them again!! Thank you, Plush - for helping to make our day so happy and fun!
Plush's reply:If any potential brides and grooms are reading this, we recommend you take Ann and John up on their offer and invite them to your wedding! Seriously though, thank you so much for the nice words. You both were so amazing to work with and we wish we could do it all over again! Hit us up next time you're in Maine for sure!
