Sara and Mike, Boothbay Harbor, June 2013
When we decided to get married in Maine, it was daunting to find vendors while we were busy working and living our lives in NYC. The entertainment fell to me, the groom, and I decided I wanted to get a wedding band. My fiance, now wife, asked why not just get a DJ (they’re for the more part cheaper and more abundant and play what you want, she said) I knew better though, DJ’s are canned music. A good band will give off a live energy and keep the party moving and the dance floor full. A google search for wedding bands in Maine yielded few results, but Wavelength came up as well reviewed and their website seemed to show a bountiful repertoire of standards and current music. I reached out to their manager, Johnna, almost a year in advance to the date of our wedding. She was great on the phone and I told her we only had a few chances to get up to Maine over the course of our engagement. You can listen to demo recordings online or youtube videos of the band, but I didn’t want to book such a large chunk of our wedding budget without hearing them perform live so we were able to coordinate meeting up at a venue Wavelength was playing at on one of those few trips up. The band was great, kept everyone dancing throughout the party and after hearing them live. Over the months leading up to the wedding, Johnna was very accommodating via email and phone, we met once more before the big day to iron out any further details. On the day, the band was fantastic. They learned our wedding song for us and absolutely nailed it. They were energetic, fun, and were on the pulse of the party and our guests and it seemed like there was never a dull moment on the dance floor. We were absolutely thrilled with everything Wavelength did for our wedding.
