Vendor Showcase: Adam MacGregor & the Foes
Welcome back! This week's vendor showcase is on Adam MacGregor & The Foes!
Tell us a little about yourselves:
Adam MacGregor & The Foes are a fun, professional four piece band consisting of Adam MacGregor, Bobby MacIsaac, Liam Kearney, and Todd McLean. Available for all live music needs, full band, solo, duo, acoustic, you name it and we can accommodate.
What inspired you to become musicians?
We all started very young, playing music in the basement and school bands. We are all passionate about music and members have been music directors, to student music teachers. Also, just to be cool, of course.
What is your favourite genre to perform?
We love playing fun, danceable music from the 50’s to current tunes. Our ever evolving list of music pulls from many genres, pop, rock, R&B, soul, you name it, we’ve played it!
How long have you been performing together as a group?
We love playing music and have been playing as a band since 2013. The band is made up of professional, award winning musicians with decades of experience that know how to entertain.
How many hours does your package include?
We play for three sets of music, usually around an hour per set with two fifteen minute breaks. If the party continues we love entertaining to a dancing crowd so we often take short breaks and play longer into the evening. Set up for weddings however can lead to a longer day as most venues also have the dinner and speeches so we are there early to set up. Some couples invite us to play background music such as jazz during the cocktail hour, dinner, or even acoustic during the ceremony so we could be there for a better part of the day.
What is your favourite part of being a part of a couple's special day?
We love to learn a few special songs for the couples first dance and for dances with their parents. Being the soundtrack to these magical moments is actually pretty amazing to witness.
Will you travel for our event?
Absolutely, we have played every pocket around PEI and the Maritimes.
What are your favourite venues to play at?
For weddings, The PEI Brewery, The Delta, Rodd Charlottetown for venues in town. The Grand Victorian, Centre Goeland, and Camp Seggie outside of town. Some of the best weddings we have played are in tents or cottage patios over looking a PEI water view.
What is the best way to get in touch with you?
“On August 22nd this past summer, Kate and I had the absolute pleasure of having The Foes play at our wedding. From the time we first contacted Liam to the moment we all straggled off the dance floor, we were astounded with their professionalism, warmth, and of course, their kick ass talent! For those of you looking to book a band for an upcoming event, we cannot say enough about this fine group of people. Professional, wicked good musicians – and perhaps what impressed most of all – the infectious fun that flows from this band from beginning to end. A huge thank you to all of you for helping to make our day so extraordinarily special.”
-Jake & Kate Wells
“I wanted send out a sincere thank you to Adam MacGregor & The Foes for playing at our wedding in July. This is a group of absolute professionals in every sense of the word. They were a huge help in the planning process and took special care to do whatever they could to chip in to make our big day so memorable.
And when they took the stage, it was on. The dance floor was packed all night and their exceptional musical talents were highlighted through a setlist that appealed to everyone in the room. We wanted our wedding dance to be a party and that's exactly what we got.”
-Ryan & Cece Stetson
Thanks so much for taking the time to chat with us, guys! I have worked with Adam, Liam, Todd and Bobby on at least half a dozen weddings and I can attest that the crowd always loves them!
Until next time,
