East Coast Soul made our wedding the absolute best night of our life. The dance floor was packed the entire night. When our photographer was leaving, she said she needed to get the band's information so she could recommend them to other brides. She does weddings every weekend and said "this is the best band I have ever heard." Not only did the music sound amazing, but the band genuinely looked like they were having a great time. They were smiling and engaging with our family and friends. This set the exact tone that we were hoping to accomplish, and everyone had an amazing time.

Art was incredibly helpful in planning the evening, staying in touch with us often and getting all of the information necessary to create the exact atmosphere that we desired.

For my husband and I, the most special moment was when the band sang our first dance song live - a Michael Jackson song that they arranged perfectly. THANK YOU, East Coast Soul, for giving us such a special evening. We cannot wait to recommend you to everyone we know, and we hope to see you at another wedding soon because it is sure to be the best time!

So much has already been said about East Coast Soul and this review simply confirms what others have said. Torrence and Traci (as an eight-piece band) really made our reception into the all-ages dance party we had hoped for. Art and the rest of the management team were super responsive, easy to work with, and made the planning process smooth and easy. From the acoustic guitar at the ceremony to the jazz trio at our cocktail hour to our first dance to the hora to the encore, ECS delivered more than we could have hoped for. All of our guests were dancing and so many people said that ECS was the best wedding band that they had heard. The acoustic guitarist learned several songs for our ceremony and the whole band learned a song for our first dance - each of these songs was executed as perfectly as every other ECS performance. ECS made our reception great and we're so glad that they traveled to Vermont for our party. We definitely recommend ECS without any hesitation.

The bottom line on these guys - they are awesome! Every guest commented on how much they loved the band we chose. My boss literally said "this has to be the top wedding band I've ever heard". They got everyone dancing, totally jammed out (dancing, having fun on stage), and played the whole night through. Honestly, if you want your guests to love the music pick these guys - they sound amazing. From a bride/groom perspective ECS is also incredibly easy to work with. They are accomodating, flexible, and responsive. My mom is a huge Van Morrison fan, and they were kind enough to learn a song for our first dance. It meant a lot to my mom and I'll be eternally grateful they did that. I am going to keep rambling about how great they are if I continue. To prove how sincere this review is let me just say this. I got married last night, and I have a bunch of stuff to do before we leave on my honeymoon. Before I did any of that I wanted to sit down and write this review, because I feel passionately that ECS is the most amazing band ever.

We could not have been happier with East Coast Soul prior to and on our wedding day! We actually booked them without seeing them play live which was risky but it worked out because they absolutely killed it at the wedding. We received a lot of feedback from our guests about the bands energy and musicianship. Which wish they could have played all night long. Additionally, Aaron, Sean and Art were incredibly easy to work with and very helpful. Sophia, Gian and Dan were absolutely amazing. We highly recommend this band.

One of the top priority items we were budgeting for our wedding was a band. I did a lot of research and went to shows for a few bands that we were interested in. ECS grabbed my attention right away from the first youtube video I saw of them and then when myself with some family members went to see them play live, we couldn't help but jump up and dance! SOLD. They did not disappoint!
Sean and Art were great to work with!
I couldn't wait for them to start playing at the reception and be right up there dancing! They are so great to work with, very flexible, super reasonable $, hard working, talented, friendly, versatile....I could go on.
THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!
Love, Kate and the Shaw family

East Coast Soul is the best!! The band put on an amazing dance party at our wedding, everyone loved it! They provided live music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The management was great to work with too. They are really quick on email and very professional. They have a really good online survey you get to fill out to outline exactly what you want, and they deliver! Seriously cannot overstate just how amazing this band is!

East Coast Soul was the best choice we could have made to make our wedding the success it was! The entire night was a huge dance party, everyone out of their seats just having the best time ever - all thanks to ECS! We had a couple of impromptu speeches and a few twists and turns in the structure of the night, and the band handled them seamlessly - as if it was all planned that way. We had some specific requests around not playing certain verses in select songs, changing up some words here and there and they nailed every request! Additionally, Art was incredibly responsive, which made the planning process super easy and stress-free. We'd highly, highly recommend East Coast Soul if you want an awesome wedding band to make your night amazing!

HIRE THIS BAND! I planned my wedding date around their availability, and boy was it worth it. From the beginning, the band's managers were very open to my thoughts and needs, and were very willing to negotiate. I got an 8-piece band featuring Giang, Dan, and Sophia, and they traveled up to Vermont for a very reasonable price. And what a show! I danced probably every single song with an enormous grin on my face. My guests were dancing right in front of the band like groupies at their favorite band's concert. I received compliments all night on how amazing they were. Not only are these top-notch musicians (we had many professional musicians at the wedding who will emphatically say the same), but they also are top-notch performers -- their enthusiasm really got the party started and the band danced and danced all night. Many of my guests (including me) were trying to think of future events they can plan where they can feature East Coast Soul. Truly -- they made my wedding amazing. My husband and I can't stop grinning when we think of great songs they played or how they introduced "This is How We Do It." So hire this band. You'll love them. In the words of Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson, "don't believe me just watch."
