These guys are truly amazing! They kept the dance floor packed all night and several of our guests approached us to say how exceptional they were. I wanted to sing to my now wife and they helped me coordinate a surprise and backing vocals/music which was really awesome. Very organized and easy to work with!

Best wedding band ever! Our guests were simultaneously stunned and thrilled. We couldn't believe the amazing dance party they threw. They also learned two songs for us and were a huge help with logistics including sound equipment for the ceremony. Every email we sent throughout the planning process was replied to within one day. We could not have asked for a better wedding band experience. Your guests will thank you for booking ECS!

“WOW! This is the best wedding band!!!!” That’s what I heard all night from our guests! This band has soul, spirited passion, tremendous talent, professional communication, and thoughtful kindness! ECS was exceptionally amazing! My fiancé and I got engaged in late May with a wedding set in October, so we thought it might be a stretch when we found ECS online and read the marvelous reviews to actually get them as our wedding band. I emailed with our inquiry and legit 15 minutes later Sean had texted me reaching out and we were booking them 24 hours later. It felt like fate! As a part time wedding photographer and caterer, I can attest that this sort of quality and professionalism is rare in the wedding industry. The acclaim and praise you read is 100% legit. The energy and dance moves of James Brown with heart of Gladys Knight; they are full out aerobic like Tina Turner & her back-up singers! We had a list of songs we liked (some early, some later additions) and the band thoughtfully played them. They learned a song requested by my mother in law for the groom/mother of groom song. My father was over the moon to hear some of his all-time favorite hits and all of our Boston Red Sox fans belted out “Sweet Caroline” with the band. Pretty incredible when you have band members upping the energy on the dance floor too! We absolutely loved it! There wasn’t one song that we didn’t love and the band was the pulse of our wedding. Even though each member of the band makes it look easy, musical talent and range like this is no easy thing. Truly impressive talent from each musician and I would not hesitate to recommend them. On top of all that, the band found an old ring that was lost during the wedding from a groomsman’s pocket and thoughtfully made sure it got put somewhere safely and responsively communicated all of it. We appreciated all the reviews when we came across ECS and if there is one inkling of doubt on where to spend your money on the event, rest assured you will no

We can’t say enough about how amazing ECS was. Our guests were raving about the band and we had so much fun dancing up a storm. With all the stresses of planning a wedding, it was such a relief to know we didn’t have to worry about the band showing up and keeping the fun going all night. It was so easy working with Art and Sean throughout the process and we were incredibly impressed how on top of things they were. Strongly recommend!

I've never heard so many guests at a wedding exclaim, "this is the best wedding band I've ever heard!" I've never seen my husband or his father - both self-proclaimed non-dancers - having so much fun. East Coast Soul did an amazing job selecting songs that kept our dance floor full right until it was time for guests to head home. They accepted song requests in real-time, nailed a really distinct cover for our first dance, did the ceremony music beautifully and brought an amazing energy to the event. They were composed and well prepared with announcements during the evening and were also incredibly organized throughout the entire planning process - the most organized of any vendor I worked with, sending automated forms to gather song preferences (in which they have a diverse offering), proactively scheduling calls with me to review the information, and being INCREDIBLY flexible with a very difficult venue (island with limited transportation and resources). Don't underestimate how valuable it is to have a vendor that's proactive about planning with you, in addition to great talent! Like my guests remarked, I felt East Coast Soul was the best wedding band I've heard. Don't hesitate to book them!

East Coast Soul (ECS) was a dream to work with. Our wedding was at a private residence and they provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. They were flexible, responsive, and attentive. They completed our must play list flawlessly and had our guests dancing from the moment they started playing the reception until the very last song. We cant say enough good things about ECS' performance and service.

East Coast Soul was AMAZING! We were told that they were "the best wedding band ever" by several guests & we have to agree. Not only were they incredibly organized in the weeks leading up to the event, but they were flawless on the big day. We had acoustic guitar for our ceremony music and the guitarist not only accommodated my very specific requests, but also executed them beautifully. The sound, provided by the band, was also perfect throughout the entire ceremony. Introductions & speeches went off without a hitch & the whole event had a great flow. After dinner the band started their full set & they blew everyone away! The music selection was fantastic & they had everyone out dancing - their energy was contagious! These guys are not only seriously talented musicians, but also great performers. We had the BEST time at our wedding & a big part of that was East Coast Soul!
