We couldn't have asked for a better day for the wedding, everything went smoothly. It started off with a beautiful fall day and ended with everyone on the dance floor hollering for "one more song"! We didn't want the night to end, as Plush was playing one great song after another. It is nerve racking placing your ideas into someone else's hands and hoping they get your vision. Plush did that and more, they had the whole place hopping from the first song. Even the dinner playlist was a huge hit with the crowd. We had so many wonderful comments from both sides of the parties, raving about the band. Our venue even asked us the next day for Plush's information, as they wanted to look into having them play an event for them.Sent on 10/21/2019
Also, right from the start Plush was very professional to work with, and easy to communicate with. They met with us to get to know us, and narrow down our taste in music. Which I must say Plush has an incredible playlist, so it made it hard to limit our choices, as we wanted them to play all of their songs. We can't say enough good things about our experience with Plush, we would highly recommend them!
Plush's reply:Wow! Thank you, Abby, for the kind words! It was so great working with you and helping plan for Nathalie and Cole's big day! From the first time with met with you, Nathalie and Monique (her proxy toast was incredible by the way!) we knew this was going to be a fantastic party and it exceeded our expectations! You have a really fun group of family and friends and we thank you again for the opportunity to share the day. Thanks again and hope to see you all again soon!

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!

Phenomenal Band and Great People!!!
I had the immense pleasure of working with Andrew and Geoff for my client's July 4th destination wedding in Camden, Maine and they were phenomenal to work with! Not only are they incredibly talented musicians, they are also downright wonderful people. They were responsive throughout the entire process, paid attention to my clients wants and absolutely overdelivered on the day of despite the weather challenges we faced. Their entire ensemble is wildly talented (Andrew can also play the EWI!!!) and they kept the dance floor packed all night. As a wedding planner, I have worked with several different musicians and I have to say, if we get to work with Plush again (we are in Atlanta), it would be an absolute treat. You cannot go wrong with this band!!!Sent on 07/15/2019

Highlight of Our Wedding!
Plush was exceptional! They exceeded our expectations and were the highlight of our wedding reception. The band was so talented both instrumentally and vocally. The dance floor was never empty! Andrew and Geoff were responsive and organized throughout the booking and planning process. We recommend Plush wholeheartedly and are looking for another reason to book them.Sent on 07/15/2019
Plush's reply:Thank you so much for the amazing words! You guys were such a treat to work with, from our very first contact, to our fun meeting in the Old Port over oysters, until the last song of the night at the reception! Next time you're in Maine, please look us up!

Best Decision Ever!
Weeks after the wedding I'm still getting praise about the band. Plush performed perfectly. The flow of their song selection and the pieces they played were spot on. Everyone was dancing and singing, and I mean everyone. We had guests in wheelchairs out on the dance floor rocking out to the music!Sent on 08/09/2019
Picking a band is difficult, especially when you live across the country and can't meet with the band in person but Andrew and Geoff were fantastic to work with and very accommodating.
Plush is not only a safe bet (because they rock), they're a smart choice with a breath of talent for a great price. Definitely worth every penny. I'd highly recommend Plush for any event.
Plush's reply:Well thank you, Jordan, for the kind words! We had so much fun playing for you guys at the Spruce Point Inn! I have to say, it was a treat working with Shani's Aunt Alice as well, so please extend a big thanks from the band next time you talk to her. She sang beautifully! We wish you guys the best and look us up next time you're in Maine!

Best decision ever
We booked Plush almost 18 months before our wedding and they were extremely professional, organized, and very experienced. There's a new name but this is clearly a band that knows the business. Geoff and Andrew were outstanding to work with and we learned so much from them. They provided ceremony music (by a lake), a jazz trio for cocktail hour, and then rocked the house for 4+ hours for the reception. We danced our butts off and had the time of our lives. So thankful!!Sent on 06/13/2019
Plush's reply:Thank you Meredith and Dave!!! The two of you were such a joy to work with and that makes our job easy! We had so much fun celebrating, playing music, and being a part of your special day! Hope to see you both again soon!

Plush played at our alumni weekend and they were first rate in every aspect of the event. We had guests of all ages and Plush played hits for all generations. Leading up to the event, they were extremely organized – fantastic with communication and logistics to ensure everything went smooth leading up to and throughout the event. They’re an extremely talented group of musicians who have a chemistry which makes for a truly memorable party. We’ve already booked them again for next year!Sent on 06/06/2019
Plush's reply:Thank you so much, Sarah, and all the staff and alumni at Bowdoin! The band had a fantastic time playing your reunion weekend and we can’t wait for next year!
