Miranda from Charlotte was great to work with. She recommended the band "In The Pocket" and they were wonderful. The band showed up on time. They were very personable and extremely talented. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a band for their wedding.

When we booked through East Coast Entertainment, they worked with us to figure out a great band for our budget and taste in music. They made recommendations and if we didn't like them they would send more and we were also able to look through their entire listing and listen to the bands. We chose The Boomers, a 4 piece band that sings a mix of contemporary, oldies, country, rock. And it was amazing!!! Initially we contacted with the band through east coast until a month out from the wedding when the band contacted us directly so we could talk with them on the phone (and email) about songs we didn't want or really wanted and what we wanted that night to be like. They were truly expectional (we had guests tell us they felt like they were at a private concert the band/singing quality was so great!). They also learned a couple songs for us that we requested in advance. I highly recommend booking your band through ECE...they made it very easy to find a band and helped us communicate easily with them!

I hired the Great Expectations band for my wedding through EastCoast Entertainment and could not be happier that I did! They were absolutely AMAZING and kept the party going and everyone on the dance floor all night. The band learned a new song for our first dance, and the singer did an amazing rendition of "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson that made everyone go crazy. My guests could not stop talking about how spectacular the band was, and I am so grateful that I made the decision to book Great Expectations. I should also mention that it was very easy working with John from EastCoast Entertainment in order to get everything arranged ahead of the big day. All in all I could not be more pleased with the wonderful job they did!!!!

I am telling you, if you do not hire this band you are crazy. This band rocks! They are professional, very easy to work with, really concerned on what it is that we were looking for to make our wedding extra special. Our guest did not get off the dance floor from the moment they started playing. We had ages from 8 - 89 year old and Trademark played to everyone. We had guest begging for them to continue to play after the wedding. I think Trademark would have continued but the Yacht Club had a noise ordnance to uphold.
I'm going to use this band from now on. They were engaging and worked the crowd but not in a line dance way, very sophisticated and totally engaging. As far as talent is concerned, they were terrific. Their playlist is current and awesome. Their vocals are amazing. I just cannot say enough about them. Just the best. Thank you trademark for making my wedding fun, memorable and I think some of our guest are still tapping their feet to your music!
With the warmest regards, Gray.

I contact several entertainment companies while searching for the band for my wedding. East Coast Entertainment provided me the best choices for my money. I live in MO and was planning a wedding in VA which made it impossible to so and see them beforehand. I had to rely on them on recommendations in addition to viewing videos online.

We got lucky and was able to book TradeMark. Even my photgrapher told me how lucky we were to get them and how aweseome they were. I couldn't agree more. They were professional, dressed perfectly to match my colors and rocked the house. They kept the dance floor packed and did a couple of special interactive things that kept the crowd engaged. We had so many compliments afterwards on how wonderful the band was and a couple of guests even got their card to use for themselves.

Thanks for a memorable evening!

I have to rave about EastCoast Entertainment because the music completely made our very special wedding day even more outstanding. When first talking to EastCoast, we expressed interest in Big Ray and Kool Kats, but our reception space wouldn't accommodate the full band. EastCoast flexibly scheduled us to get "Kool Kats Lite," essentially an 8-person subset including Ray. They were phenomenal! They played lovely mellow music during our cocktail hour and dinner, very memorably played our first dances and then kicked it up with rockin' dance tunes to get most of our guests on the dance floor. So many of our guests commented on the band being exceptionally good. I highly recommend the band and EastCoast Entertainment!!!

EastCoast Entertainment provided the band BS&M for our wedding. I can not say enough about the band. My parents had heard the band at a previous wedding and were very excited about trying to book them for the wedding. Dave, the band leader, allowed myself and my parents to come to another function to hear them perform and after only being there for several minutes I knew they were the right choice. On the day of the wedding I was very relaxed about the music because I knew everything would be just how I had imagined. I could not have asked for anything any better and not only did I stay on the dance floor the entire night but so did most of the guest ranging from 3 to their 80's. If you want a party for your reception this is the band for you.

LEGGZ learned three new songs to accommodate our first dance and parent dance song selections and provided such entertainment they had everyone up on their feet and dancing ten minutes after the reception started and kept the dance floor full all night long.

I very much recommend LEGGZ for your event.

The DJ was okay. I don't know if it was the crowd or the song selections but we couldn't fill the dance floor. I heard from guests that their song recommendations were used and they were the ones actually dancing:(

Also, I heard the timing of the speeches was thrown off and it caught my maid of honor a little off guard.

Lastly, I wish the DJ took more control of the crowd to quiet things does before the speakers started since the speeches weren't heard at first.
