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!
We had a wonderful experience with ECE. John W. was extremely responsive and helpful in finding the right band for us. We went with Klaxton Brown band and couldn't be more happy. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone continues to rave about how great they were. They were awesome!
East Coast Enteratinment was great. They gave us a break on price and only took a 50% commission from the band. Thanks East Coast.
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!!!
Can only really comment on the Quality of Serviced I noticed and the professionalism because I was not the bride at this wedding... but I attended a wedding where they provided a band (I don't remember their name) and the band was great! They were lively and kept the guests dancing all night!
We used East Coast Entertainement to help us find a band for our reception and the band that we went with was Gentleman and Their Lady. The band was AWESOME!!! The guys (and gal) rocked the house! The dance floor was packed all night and guests are still taling about how great the band was! I can't thank East Coast Entertainment and Gentleman and Their Lady enough. They definitely made our reception memorable!
We worked through East Coast Entertainment to book Gentlemen and Their Lady. We couldn't have been happier. They learned several new songs for us and the dance floor was packed all night (not just full, but packed!). We had an amazing time and dancing to the band is one of my favorite memories!
EastCoast Entertainment helped us to identify a band that fit with our budget and taste in music. 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.
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.
Groovetown Band was an excellent choice! They were a hit with all of our guests.
East Coast Entertainment is fantastic. We recommend them to brides all the time!

The entertainment is THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT TO THE SUCCESS OF YOUR RECEPTION. I am sure you hear this from many vendors, however, once the initial intake of how beautiful everything looks (including you!), how wonderful the food is and how great it is to see all of your family and friends it is time to boogie down. Invest time and a large portion of your budget on the "meat and potatoes" of the party...your entertainment!
In order to have access to your favorite band and to secure your top choice of a band or DJ it is important to book your entertainment 6 months to 1 year in advance. Your EastCoast Entertainment agent will send you specific website links to bands/DJs who are available within your stylistic preferences, size preferences and budget. The links will give you an opportunity to review each artists bio, references, song lists, sound samples and sometimes even video of the band performing. As your big date gets closer and closer and bands get booked up for the season you have less and less to choose from as time progresses. So book early!
Often, it is difficult to see your EastCoast band perform live prior to your wedding date. Most of the artists EastCoast Entertainment represents perform solely for private functions. These are not club bands, they are wedding bands. They adhere to a very high standard of professionalism both on and off stage and will bend over backwards to ensure your day is exactly how you envisioned it to be. Your ECE agent will shed light on the specifics of the bands' line-up, song lists etc. Understand that your agent spends day in and day out reviewing artists, qualifying artists and studying the intricate details that makes each band unique. Their ability to match the perfect band with your tastes will be evident when your band performs the most amazing wedding party music you have ever seen!
