"Isaiah is an absolute joy to work with. He gave us such personalized attention and make the entire experience so easy. We knew music was key to our day and that we wanted a giant dance party. Unable to afford a big band, Isaiah was the perfect middle ground. He sang and played acoustic guitar pre and post ceremony, during cocktail hour, and even for our first dance and parent dances. He then effortlessly transitioned to a DJ for our reception — all with such a positive and upbeat attitude, this guy doesn’t stop smiling. Our dance floor was packed the entire night and our guests are still talking about the amazing music, dancing, and their sore feet. He took our playlist requests with no problem and customized to our tastes. He even offered to meet with us the week before our wedding and we got to see him play live at one of his local gigs. I can not recommend working with Isaiah more, he helped make our day perfect and exactly what we envisioned.”

"Isaiah was the ABSOLUTE BEST! For us, music was one of our top priorities for our wedding. We wanted to have a great DJ as we knew we had a ton of people wanting to dance all night. We also really wanted to have live acoustic music for the ceremony and cocktail hour....and it had to be really really good. Not only did Isaiah more than deliver on both fronts, we had people trying to pay him at the end of the night to stay and play longer! He is an amazingly talented musician and blew us all away. The song we wanted to walk down the isle to was written by a friend of ours and Isaiah learned and performed the song beautifully. It was really a special moment for us. He rolls with the punches - we had a generator issue while he was playing before our ceremony so he had no speaker or power. No problems, Isaiah is such a professional, he just kept playing and just belted it out. No speaker needed.  Above all, Isaiah is such a joy to work with. We felt like he was having just as much fun as we were. His energy was amazing and really was a big part of making our day so special.”

"Our entire experience with Isaiah- from start to finish- was perfect, and we could not have found a more genuine, talented musician to be a part of our wedding day. His warmth, energy and vibe helped set the tone for a truly memorable ceremony and reception. He was able to seamlessly get our family and friends on the dance floor after speeches and dinner and kept them dancing all night long!  Top it off, Isaiah truly went above and beyond to learn a new song that we selected for our first dance. He made the entire planning process stress-free with great communication and speedy responses. We feel so lucky to have found Isaiah for our wedding and couldn't be happier with our decision.”

"Do yourself a favor and book Isaiah for your wedding immediately. We were planning our Maine wedding remotely from Brooklyn, so were feeling a little bit nervous about booking a ceremony musician without being able to see them perform or even meet them in person. Once we found Isaiah's videos and started emailing with him, our fears were squashed and we knew he was exactly the type of musician we wanted for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He has such a beautiful sound, and has such a wide range of songs he can sing and play acoustically. He also absolutely knows how to read a crowd, and had all of our friends singing along with him at our cocktail hour. He then transitioned so quickly and seamlessly into our reception DJ, and again, had exactly the vibe we were looking for. He really listened to us when we told him what type of music we wanted him to play, and he played a mix that resonated with guests of a range of ages. I also REALLY appreciated that he knew which type of guest requests to play, and which ones to avoid. We had so many compliments from guests on how amazing Isaiah was, and we couldn't agree more. He's also such a cool guy in general, and you sort of end up feeling like he belongs at your wedding either way! We would highly, highly recommend him!!”

Fresh Track – March 2016 – Isaiah Bennett – From Maine to American Idol

"Every now and then a musician comes along that knows how to keep things simple, yet maintain and engage an audience. One such musician that has creatively perfected this art is Isaiah Bennett. He calls Maine his home, has vocals that makes heads turn, and relaxed guitar chords that grab the listener’s attention."

Seven acts from maine

"All the participants in the New England music scene are on the same team. We just play a lot of different genres at a lot of variable venues throughout five separate states. Each of these assorted areas have their own special sound and unique characteristics. Check out what ISAIAH BENNETT has to say about Maine’s happening entertainment environment."
