The village of Kennebunkport is often hopping with visitors lining the narrow streets and covering the patios. Often live music can be heard throughout town adding to the festive feel. Whether it's a local cover band jamming at the Pilot House or the Arundel Wharf, there's always some great live music to be found in Kennebunkport. The next time you visit, stop into one of these spots for live music in Kennebunkport to enjoy a drink and some tunes.

Federal Jack's | 8 Western Ave, Kennebunk | (207) 967-4322

We love Feds for many reasons—its wide array of beers brewed on site, the full menu of brew pub staples, and most of all, the live music. Once the dinner crowd empties out, the band sets up in the dining room and the fun begins. Friday and Saturday nights, live music starts at 10pm and goes until closing time at 1am. There's no better place to dance than on the second floor of Federal Jack's overlooking the water.

Pedro's | 181 Port Rd, Kennebunk | (207) 967-5544

The vibe is more chill over at Pedro's when the live music starts. Every Sunday afternoon from 4 to 7pm, a rotating local act plays from Mexican-inspired to blues. Our favorite act is Primo Cubano who plays with a Cuban flair. Good luck staying in your seat for this one! But whoever is on stage, a margarita in hand at Pedro's make this live music in Kennebunkport sound that much better.

Vinegar Hill Music Theater | 53 Old Post Rd, Arundel | (207) 985-5552

This new addition to the Maine music scene opened May of 2016 after its owners rennovated the Arundel Barn Playhouse. With its acoustically-friendly exposed beams and lofty ceiling, the new music theater is a great place to catch a show. Wwe particularly love having a drink at the the outdoor bar before the show starts. Whether it's a big name national act or a stand-up comedy show, you'll love this beautiful place to enjoy live music in Kennebunkport.
