  • East Coast Band was as advertised, absolutely fantastic. They had everyone on the dance floor all night and many people came up to me after the wedding and said the band was the best they've ever seen. I'd say I was surprised but we booked them in part due to all of the glowing reviews we read about them saying the same thing. There are a couple things that really make them special. Firstly, they have enormous range. They are able to play Top 40s/R&B, Classic Rock, more modern rock (i.e. Green Day, Blink 182, Third Eye Blind, etc), and everything in between. Secondly, they are not separately managed by one of those management agencies that are on the front lines representing most wedding bands. What that means is that if you book these guys you will plan your music with Paul, who is in the band (and was awesome to work with), rather than a band manager who does not actually play in the band. It also means you're spending less because there's no middleman taking a cut. Paul made ... Read more

  • UNBELIEVABLE BAND! Best wedding band we've ever seen or experienced, hands down. Great talent, variety, and energy as performers, and extremely communicative and easy to work with during the wedding planning process. We and our guests could not have been happier with them on our wedding night - truly took our wedding from great to exceptional. Thanks again!!

  • We couldn't have been happier with our experience with East Coast Music & Entertainment. We were looking for a band that would work with us to not just play the typical, same old wedding songs you hear at every wedding, but rather a more personal playlist that really spoke to us and our guests. Paul was very responsive and flexible with our plans, and it showed. I felt like they offered a tremendous value, especially compared with some of the prices I had seen from other vendors. Highly recommended.

  • I was against the idea of a band at first, because I thought it was old-fashioned. However, this band is PHENOMENAL!! They played songs that were just released weeks ago and sounded exactly like the original artist. They kept everyone up and dancing!

  • Thanks to East Coast for providing a wonderful night of entertainment at our daughter's wedding! Their music was fabulous and kept everyone on their feet! One of my favorite surprises was when the band took breaks (which were amazingly brief!), and their "Bruce" musician (not sure of his name) played "If I Should Fall Behind" as background music. It is one of my favorite songs and I just loved that addition!! CC was great at getting us organized and running the intro's! Kenny and CC were so much fun and we loved their interaction with the guests on the dance floor. They were both great performers, as were all the members of the band! The horn section was amazing without being overpowering! The day after our wedding event our friend contacted East Coast to book them for her son's wedding! Again, thanks to Paul for his patience and guidance throughout this process! We all totally enjoyed the evening! Best to all, Jeanne

  • I cannot say enough great things about East Coast Band. We booked them after watching them at The Red Lion and are so glad that we did. Working with them to coordinate our song selection was so easy, and communication was always quick. The best part about this band is that I gave them only a bit of direction and they took it and ran with it. There was not one second of the night that the dance floor was not jam packed. Our guests are still raving about how amazing East Coast Band was! They made our night so fun and brought the best vibe. Don't think twice - book East Coast Band!!!

  • Gordon Dukes and his band were totally and completely INCREDIBLE!!!! They brought such amazing music, sound, positivity, exuberance, and joy to our wedding!!! The band really MADE the wedding!!! We still cannot get over how exceptional the band was!!! And we’re not the only ones -- our families and guests keep telling us (and they told us that day too) how insanely amazing the band was!! No one can believe it. People told us that they had the quality, sound, and performance of 18 bands combined. SEVERAL people told us that this was the best wedding band they had ever seen or heard -- and we totally agree!!! The dance floor was PACKED the entire night, and that was thanks to Gordon, the whole band, and their amazing talent. And on top of all of that, we had a very unique venue (ceremony on a mountaintop and potentially changing timelines and complicated backup rain plan for the ceremony/reception which impacted the change-over) and Gordon was so flexible and made it work seamlessly.

  • This band is phenomenal and our wedding guests are STILL talking about them! The group is so impressive in person and honestly their website does not do them justice. We included Big Mike as one of our performers and could not have been happier with that choice, he is OUTSTANDING ! We also added strings and a jazz trio for ceremony and cocktail, so so happy with that decision. You can not go wrong with this group, the experience level and quality is so good! Just remember your guests always remember the quality of music and this band is hands down worth the price (which was complete fair!) They killed it!

  • East Coast is THE BEST!!! They delivered 150% on our wedding night. Leading up to the wedding, Paul, Melissa and the rest of the team helped make all of our requests come true. Our walk in song and first dance song were PERFECT! Our dance floor was jam packed all night long. People were raving about the band from cocktail hour all the way until the after party. The members of the band are so talented. The soft music during dinner was so perfect and some of the band members even come around to the table while singing, which our guests LOVED! We can't thank East Coast enough for helping create the perfect party atmosphere for our wedding. The talent is amazing and you should definitely book them for your wedding!!! Check out their social media and go see them locally around Long Island and NYC. This is the best way to really see everything the band has to offer and all the talented and wonderful musicians that work for the band. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone getting married!

  • Thank you to East Coast Band for making our wedding amazing. Our wedding was attended by people ranging from their 20s to their 80s....and everyone loved the music!!!!! "How did you find them?", "Best wedding band I've ever heard" and "Can we interrupt them to get their card" were among the top comments we got from our guests, and we had a packed dance floor from start to finish. On top of everything, Paul was instrumental in our entire wedding planning process, since we met him before we had even chosen a venue, and he gave us some very valuable advice, which ultimately helped us to select a venue that was perfect for us. East Coast gave us a wedding that our guests thought was wonderful..... And so did we!!! Thank you so much East Coast band for being such a crowd pleaser.....and for being such a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was perfect, and you'll still be seeing us at the Red Lion. =)

  • I highly recommend booking East Coast Band for your wedding! We used them for our wedding in May and they were unbelievable! SO much fun, the dance floor was packed all night long. We had so many people reach out to us after the wedding say how awesome they thought the band was! They were super easy to work with leading up to the wedding too which relieved a lot of stress off me. Go with East Coast band!

  • For full disclosure, I did not book this band. Although had I known about them I would have!! I contacted one of their lead singers, Kenny, through a mutual friend a couple of weeks before my wedding to sing my first dance song as a surprise to my husband. He was AMAZING! He created a track specifically for it, came right into the crowd as he sang, and started the reception off on an incredible note. I still have friends and family talking about what a cool experience it was. I hope someday I do go to a wedding with this band because that will be one hell of a wedding!

  • We hired East Coast Music & Entertainment as our wedding band and we couldn't have been happier. They came recommended to us by close friends who used them for their wedding. Paul and his team were terrific to work with throughout the whole process. We loved that we could see the band play at a local bar ahead of time; that sealed the deal. We really liked the fact that we could tailor the number and type of musicians to fit within our budget and our desired musical needs. Some other "bands" that we spoke with simply pulled together musicians as contractors as needed, but East Coast Music employs a smaller roster of musicians that work together on a regular basis. The band had great energy, got the guests up and dancing, played great music, and were interactive with guests on the dance floor. East Coast Music provided an amazing band that everyone loved for a reasonable price.
