Sol Fusion was incredible, they went out of their way to make the night more than we ever dreamed of....we would not hesitate to not only recommend but to say we will definitely use them again. As the mother of the bride, I was worried that my daughter and new husband would not like the music, or the band, they were blown away with the way they coordinated with them before the wedding, and how they had us dancing all night long! The dance floor was packed and people did not want to stop dancing.
Thank you all,
Very Happy MOB - Rosie

My step-daughter's wedding was October 11, 2014 in Asheville, North Carolina. We booked Momentum Party Band through EastCoast Entertainment based upon a video. I was a bit nervous because I think music is the most important element of a wedding reception. They did not disappoint. Working with Theo before the wedding was a pleasure - he was happy to accommodate special requests and was very interested in making the reception what we wanted it to be. At the reception, the band was great! Everyone told me how much they loved them and several friends who are in the early stages of planning weddings, took their card. If I were planning another wedding, I'd book Momentum Party Band without hesitation!

I am a music and dance lover so picking a band was a top priority for me! I had recently attended a wedding where Sol Fusion performed and knew immediately they would be my wedding day when that day came. They exceeded my expectations and everyone had an absolute blast. Their vocals are amazing, song choices perfect and they really get the guests dancing and having a good time! Throughout the night and days after the reception we received tons of compliments on the band. I would highly recommend East Coast Entertainment and Sol Fusion!

EastCoast Entertainment was extremely helpful in finding a band for our wedding. I worked with Ellie to find the perfect band. Our budget was tight and we initially thought that we would not be able to afford live music. Ellie was able to work with our needs to find a PHENOMENAL band that could serve our needs within our budget. Also, when we hit a bump in the road (I was laid off), EastCoast kindly understood our situation and was able to be flexible with payment.

Ellie Schwartz at East Coast Entertainment made the process of picking a band for our wedding and rehearsal dinner fun and easy. She sent me links to bands that she thought would fit well with what we were looking for and then we could decide from there. She was very responsive and extremely helpful. We ended up hiring two of the most amazing bands through East Coast Entertainment, 20 Ride and Bobby and the Aristocats. I would definitely recommend using East Coast to book your next band. They made me feel at ease and comfortable that everything would be perfect on my wedding day...and it was!

I thought SOL FUSION was the ABSOLUTE BEST band ever! They made the whole wedding .....well, at least the reception! They all have amazon voices and picked up on the energy of the crowd. They made every attempt to keep the party going throughout the reception. I am the Mother of the Bride and I danced my feet off!!!
Thanks SOL FUSION!

The Voltage Brothers are amazing! They were professional, kind, super talented and easy to work with! We loved the horns, voices, high energy and ability to keep the crowd involved and dancing! Our daughter did not want the night to end. The band played their special requests from Sinatra to Taj Mahal and the Beatles. This band was the perfect choice for our daughter and son-in-law. We could not have asked for a better experience! We hope we get another opportunity to hire them to entertain us! Totally recommend! And totally recommend East Coast Entertainment! Ellie Schwarz was our contact and she was a dream to work with and very accommodating! You can't go wrong with these people!

Ellie provided us with so much information when we were trying to decide on a band. It was great working with her and we will certainly in touch when/if we need a band. I can't say enough great things about We Got the Beat. They literally blew us away! My husband and I were a little concerned as they didn't have that many reviews and our wedding planner had never worked with them . We went with our gut feeling and it certainly paid off. From the guitarist at the ceremony to our first dance, they were so accommodating with our requests. Unfortunately, we got off to a bit of a late start with the ceremony. Brad made sure to locate Jonathan and I in the crowd to find out which songs we wanted to hear before the end of the night. They also skipped a break to make up for lost time. We truly appreciated this. They engaged the crowd and just generally rocked the whole night. I'm sure they would have played into the wee hours of the morning if the venue had let them! My husband (who is not a big dancer) danced the entire time as did I. We have also been receiving rave reviews from all of our wedding guests. In fact, we had a guest contemplating canceling the band for her daughter's upcoming wedding to hire We Got the Beat. If her husband hadn't reminded her that they had already put down a deposit, I'm pretty sure she would have booked them on the spot :) We cannot thank them enough for making our wedding night SO much fun. They sounded awesome and are true professionals.

I worked with East Coast Entertainment to find a band for our wedding reception and they made the entire process so simple! I was so excited when we got the band Ascension - since I had been to wedding where they played and we had such a great time. They far exceeded my expectations and our guests are still talking about how amazing the band was! Everyone danced the entire evening and guests even started dancing while the dinner was being served. They were amazing and I would definitely hire them again for another event and recommend them to others. They were engaged with the audience and made our wedding reception SO much fun and memorable. Thank you so much Ascension and East Coast Entertainment!!

First, a bold statement: Sol Fusion is the best party band in North Carolina, if not the entire Southeastern United States, if not the world.

This band can flat out jam. You could put them in a room full of centenarian Baptists, each with two left feet, and in less than five minutes, every single pair of feet would be out there flailing on the dance floor. Their energy is simply contagious. With a bevy of instrumentalists, three female vocalists, and one truly outstanding male vocalist named TK, whose party shades are nearly as radical as his voice, they have the versatility to perform just about anything. And whatever they perform, they perform it well.

We hired the band to play at our wedding reception in July, and never in my life have I seen such a high percentage of party guests dancing at the same time. No exaggeration: it seemed as if everyone present was on the dance floor the WHOLE. TIME. It didn't matter if they were eight years old or eighty! Every single guest I've talked to since has told me that Sol Fusion was the best wedding band they've ever heard. My dad, who danced like a maniac the whole night, later told me that he hadn't danced like that since the early 80's. Afterwards, he had to turn down several hugs because he was drenched in sweat from head to toe.

I can't praise this band enough for what they brought to our reception. Not only was their performance flawless (did I mention that their transitions were seamless, and that they played for over two hours without taking a break?), but they were also extremely accommodating, taking our song requests and even learning a few new numbers just for us. Their agent, Chris, was readily available and a tremendous help throughout the whole process, and before I go on any longer, I'll end my review by saying that I would wholeheartedly recommend this band to anyone for any event, any time. Thanks, Sol Fusion!

Band we used was 'In the Pocket' - Larry Farber's old band! They were amazing. Played all the songs we wanted, none that we didn't want, and the dance floor was NEVER even a tiny bit empty. Great at reading the crowd, amazing singers and good song selection at a reasonable price. Amazingly good value - thanks!!! Larry and his office in Charlotte are the best to work with as well. I just said 'these three things are important' and asked for recommendations given the several hundred bands on the ECE website, and Larry immediately named some fantastic recommendations.

We used East Coast Entertainment to find a band for our engagement party. They did a great job and found a band called "Mr. Potato Head" that played a wide variety of music-- everything from oldies to jazz to rock to hip-hop. They were wonderful and a real crowd pleaser. The guys at East Coast Entertainment made it so easy. They are very quick to respond and they were on-site at the event to make sure everything ran smoothly. Great firm!

We hired the band 'Risse' through East Coast Entertainment and we couldn't have asked for better! They were incredibly professional and took care of all the little details I would've forgotten. East Coast Entertainment were very responsive and were so easy to work with! I would definitely use these guys! The band couldn't have been more perfect for our event!!!

If you want to find a great band, East Coast Entertainment is the way to go! The music was the most important thing to my husband, so we knew we had to get it right! The first place we called was East Coast Entertainment. We worked with Ellie LaBar and she hit the nail on the head when she told us we should hire Deja Vu. I cannot even begin to explain how great these guys were! They dance floor was packed all night long . . . everyone from my 80 year old grandmother to my 2 year old cousin were on the dance floor! It was absolutely amazing! I would have paid 5 times Deja Vu's fee to get them!

Shimmer band from EastCoast Entertainment was a homerun. Jay at Shimmer was so professional thoughout the entire process - very prompt with emails and information. Out guests raved about Shimmer during and after the wedding. People were out on the dance floor until the last note played. They did a great job of getting everyone up off of their feet and making the bride and groom feel so special. Thanks Shimmer!!

Ted Hall at East Coast Entertainment was very helpful in booking our band, Anita, for the wedding. We had some difficulty initially trying to get information about bands using the website initially, but after contacting the office via telephone everything went smoothly. Ted helped to coordinate the details and make sure that we knew what was involved, as well as offer advice along the way. Anita (the band), was SIMPLY AMAZING!! From the first song when every person between 5 and 80 literally ran to the dance floor until we had to drag the last person off and push them onto the bus, it was an awesome evening. The band played music that perfectly suited the mood of the party, and kept everyone on their feet all night. I can’t recommend Anita highly enough, and East Coast Entertainment made it happen.

We used East Coast Entertainment to find a band that suited our party. We needed a band with energy to entertain our lively crowd! They led us to Hot Sauce. It has 2.5 weeks since our wedding and STILL we are receiving compliments on our band. They were awesome! For the ENTIRE night everyone was out of their chairs and dancing. East Coast didn't do a great job responding to my questions but once I was involved solely with Hot Sauce I was able to communicate a whole lot better.

East Coast Entertainment was easy to work with and booked a great band for my big day. The only down side was that we were told the band would learn one song for our wedding if it was not already on the play list. The song we chose the band said they could not learn/play because it was not their style. So, we had to change our first dance song. But they (Too Much Sylvia) was our band were able to read the crowd and keep everyone on their feet and dancing.

Ellie at East Coast was very helpful in helping us find just the right band to fit the bride and groom's musical tastes AND stay within budget. The band we engaged was just fantastic and very professional, and everyone at the wedding thought they were terrific.

We used the Voltage Brothers as our band for our wedding and also hired their female vocalist. They were outstanding!! Really brought a lot of energy and everyone was dancing all night. I would hire them again if I were doing it all over again. We did the Jewish Hora dance and they did a phenomenal job on that too!
Only wished they had paid more attention to our song requests...seemed like they just sort of did what they habitually do and we never heard any of the specific songs we had requested.

Terrible experience. The "Fantasy Voyage Band" (highly recommended and connected via EastCoast) was the worst wedding band of all time. 4 hours late. Couldn't follow directions (which had been given weeks in advance and again at the time of the event) on first dances and introduction of wedding party. Look elsewhere for your wedding entertainment. Prices were HIGH too.
