This band played for my son's wedding on Oct. 25 in NYC and they were fantastic!!! The best band ever for weddings or any event. The dance floor was packed all night. They are so friendly and do whatever you want for your special event. They deserve 100 stars not 5 if I can give it to them. Everyone at the wedding was commenting how great they are. You will not be sorry if you book them for your special event.

East Coast played a significant part in making my son's wedding perfect. They were professional, their voices were excellent, their energy was endless and the variety of music they played was ideal for this occasion. The dance floor was packed the entire night and we attribute this to the quality of the East Coast band. Not only did we feel so positive but so many of our guest had the same feeling as we did

They absolutely blew me away! I These guys were the highlight of our wedding night. People literally did not sit down all night, and they carried the energy throughout. They totally nailed our first dance song, which they learned special for the occasion, and were overall truly the highlight of our wedding reception. They even played "one more song!" and people kept saying they felt like they were at a concert.

East Coast Band was amazing! They totally "Made" the wedding! All of the guests we up and dancing and 2 months later we are still getting compliments about our choice in band! Paul was super accommodating with all of our special requests and went out of his way to find an Italian singer that was perfect for my Big Fat Italian Wedding!
I can't wait to see them and dance as a guest when I go to a friend's wedding they are booked for in March!

Didn't want to tell anyone before as I didn't want anyone to try to steal our date.
We had all the members play, music was really important to us and to the bride and groom, and East Coast could not have been better. It was an afternoon wedding, sometimes its hard to get people up to dance, but our guests were rocking from the minute they started to the minute they said goodbye. Paul is a sweetheart to work with, accommodated everybody's crazy lists, and negotiated brilliantly between the 90s music and the Motown contingents and everyone was happy...
Bands are more expensive than DJs usually, but East Coast is worth every penny.

East Coast Band did an amazing job at our wedding! The dance floor was almost always packed because people loved the music! We had many people come up to us after the wedding to say that they loved the music and people even forgot that we had a live band because they were that good. We would highly recommend East Coast for anyone's wedding or special occasion!

There are not enough words to describe how amazing East Coast was! Our wedding was so special and that was because of the entire East Coast band!! From the minute our reception started until the very last song was played, every one of our guests was up dancing. Our guests could not say enough amazing things! Paul was absolutely wonderful to work with. Prior to our wedding date and even after, we have gone to see East Coast play at different bars and locations. We always know we will dance the night away when we see them play. I would recommend them to any bride and groom who are planning their wedding!!!

Scott Toole at East Coast Entertainment was great to work with! Our wedding band, The Rubberband, came highly recommended by Scott and they did not disappoint! Scott was great at being the communicator between me and the band leading up to wedding week. The week of the wedding I had many questions and requests and Rubberband assured me they had everything under control and they did! They made our wedding night! Everyone raved about the band and my husband and I thought they were awesome as well! We also used Rubberband's guitarist for our ceremony music and he was also amazing! We requested a mix of traditional and contemporary songs and they were all absolutely perfect!!! RUBEBRBAND is HIGHLY recommended!

We went with East Coast Band for our wedding reception. We cannot recommend them enough! From the very start of the planning process, Paul was extremely helpful, friendly, and so responsive. He guided us through absolutely everything, spent quality time with us in person and on the phone, and also offered some great suggestions and recommendations.

The night of the wedding, Camille, Big Mike, Kenny and the whole band were the hit of the evening! The dance floor was full the whole time and no one wanted the reception to end. Each member of the band is so very talented and they perform really well together. Our guests are still telling us - to this day - how much they loved East Coast Band.

Thank you, East Coast Band, for helping us offer a truly memorable evening for our family and friends!

East Coast Band played at our wedding at the Carltun in March 2014 and they were PHENOMENAL. They played the right mix of new and old favorites to keep the wedding on the dance floor the entire night. I had guests come up to me all evening just to tell me how amazing the band was. More than one person told me it was the best wedding band they had ever heard.

Plus - I live in California and was planning my wedding long-distance. Paul was great to work with - always available via phone or email.

I seriously just want to throw another party so East Coast can come play again!
