Hi Paul,

We have returned from NY and the wedding at the Garrison and have begun the unwinding process.
Loads of fun for everyone!
Part of the unwinding is the recovery of my voice! The Band was awesome. Non-stop dancing, great renditions of the songs from all genres, not too soft or too loud, and my voice which sang along was never heard by anyone but me! Thank goodness. But nonetheless, it was gone by the next morning!
Wendy and I, on behalf of both families and especially Ted and Laura, want to thank you and everyone involved with East Coast Band for the great addition all of you made to the wedding. Loads of complements from friends calling you one of the best wedding and dance bands they have heard. And we have all gone to many, many weddings all over the country.
East Coast Band was great. We remain thrilled we found you.
Thanks again.
Regards,

Jim

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 BAND was the band at my wedding at The Pierre Hotel in New York City on October 18th, 2014. Their music was outstanding and they had the crowd of 250+ people dancing for the entire 4 hours of the reception. They were also a pleasure to deal with in terms of scheduling, logistics and developing exactly the right play list for the vibe we wanted to create. And they were also a very good value. Simply the best wedding band EVER!

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!

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!

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.
