  • We loved ECS. Their musicianship is outstanding, they set the tone for a fantastic dance party, and every guest raved! It was an awesome way to end our wedding! Leading up to the wedding, ECS was very responsive and professional. They invited us to hear them and held our date until we did. It was a very easy decision once we heard them! We had Torrence and Traci as singers - they killed it! The jazz duo at cocktail hour laid out a great atmosphere and the solo guitar at dinner made the night so special. ECS is well worth the money. Live musicians deliver an incomparable experience and I highly recommend this very talented group!

  • ECS was amazing!!! They were everything we hoped for in a wedding band. Our dance floor was jam packed all night long with all generations of guests! To start with, they are great to work with. Very quick to respond, very professional, and very reasonably priced! We got married on Block Island it was their first time playing out there. We took the chance because we were really into their style. So happy we did it. They were great! They did a great job with the announcements, which is always challenging when you are announcing 26 people. They got all of the names right! The music was awesome! Additionally, we had some friends who are in a band and they wanted to play a song that night. This was a surprise and was not pre-arranged at all. The band was so accommodating and let all the guys get on stage and play their song. The horn players from ECS joined them in an LCD Soundsystem cover. Pretty awesome to have the band able to switch gears like that at the drop of a ha... Read more

  • The first few adjectives that come to mind... Incredible, Amazing, Superb... and the list goes on and on. Not only was East Coast Soul incredibly easy and professional to work with (easy website to navigate, open rehearsals to view their songs, customized playlists, etc), they provided over six hours of non-stop fun during our power-less wedding... yes, POWER-LESS wedding. My husband and I were married just over three weeks ago in Ipswich, MA. It happened to be the night of an epic summer thunderstorm - cue bride panic. Halfway through cocktail hour, a huge bolt of lightening struck the Estate where our reception was being held and knocked out all the power. Rather than panic, East Coast Soul assured me and my husband that they'd do everything they could to still make the evening a success - and they couldn't have pulled through any stronger! While waiting for the generator to arrive, the band quickly put band members on their horn instruments and grand piano so music could ... Read more

  • ECS was AMAZING! They put on an awesome show for us - full of enthusiasm and energy! We had such a fun dance party, with people of all ages on the dance floor. They were fun and easy to work with - incredibly organised and I didn't have to worry about a thing! I highly recommend to anyone - we have heard such good feedback from all of our guests!

  • If I could give a million stars, I would! East Coast Soul played at our wedding in summer of 2015 at OceanCliff in Newport, RI and despite the gorgeous setting, wonderful food, beautiful flowers, etc, all anyone can talk about was how great the band was. They kept everyone on the dance floor (including my 90 year old grandmother) and they didn't take a single break in our entire 4 hour reception! There was something for everyone- I don't think there was a genre or song they couldn't play and they had an expert instinct for what balance of songs would keep the party going. Typically at weddings, the younger crowd dances while everyone over 30 sits looking miserable. With ECS, almost everyone wanted to dance and those who didn't were having too much fun watching the show to be bored. They were extremely professional and made the process of selecting songs and hiring them incredibly easy. They were clearly invested in making sure they delivered the experience we wanted, rather than what t... Read more

  • Do you want a REAL BAND? Or a wedding band? My husband and I were in the market for a soulful, cool vibe...married on may 10th, after being engaged for 2years. We wanted a wedding that reflected who we are as a couple and took a long, stress-free time to make our plans. We are an NYC couple who happened to attend a wedding in Marblehead MA in 2012, not knowing more than 5 people at the 200 person wedding. East Coast Soul performed there and we danced the entire night. I am a professional dancer, my husband a sweet finance banker, and I must say that we danced more than ever before, loved every tune and fell in love with ECS that night. When we began planning for our wedding, we knew with no question who to hire and why. We had an eclectic group of friends and family, cultural differences and strongly opinionated guests, and EAST COAST SOUL was perfectly suited for our wedding. Not only were they lovely to work with, but long distance planning was easy, arrangements and specificatio... Read more

  • We are so grateful to East Coast Soul for their extraordinary performance at our wedding. The band delivered a virtuoso performance, displaying energy, polish, and just the right vibe for our reception. We were initially concerned whether our guests would even be interested in dancing, but we had no reason to worry. East Coast Soul had guests of all ages out of their chairs and on the dance floor at the first song. We cannot tell you how many of our guests complimented us for finding East Coast Soul! It was also a pleasure working with East Coast Soul to plan our event. They learned a new song for our first dance, collaborated with us on our song list, coordinated with us on our schedule of events, and were just wonderful people to work with. In one instance, the band began a song that the groom had specifically requested for him and his bride, but we were detained outside the reception hall for photographs. One of the band members noticed that we weren’t there, remembered the req... Read more

  • Oh man, these guys are incredible. I think every single one of our guests came up to me on the wedding night and said 'Who is this band??? They are amazing!!!!' They learned the Cat Power song 'Sea of Love' for us for our first dance and I swear it was magic when they played it. Even more beautiful than I could've imagined. And they're so FUN! The singers were all dancing while they were singing and they had smiles on their faces the whole time, everyone just loved them and never wanted to leave the dance floor. I also think they played the perfect array of music, they got everyone from grandparents, to aunts and uncles and ALL of our friends dancing at some point. They knew just how to work the room, everyone would get excited at whatever the next song was :) I worked with Sean in the whole booking and planning process and he was the easiest person to talk to and work with. He listened to all of my ideas and questions and worked out the perfect package for me. He made every... Read more

  • From the first time speaking with East Coast Soul through the last song played at our wedding we could not have envisioned a better band to work with for the big day.Throughout the entire planning process ECS was incredibly professional, responsive and always happy to answer any questions we had. It's difficult to express what a fantastic atmosphere the band provided - from the light jazz music during cocktail hour to keeping the dance floor packed throughout the entire night - the night was unforgettable. Everyone left the evening talking about how wonderful the band was and we couldn't have agreed more! Thank you so much East Coast Soul!!!

  • We had East Coast Soul play at our wedding last month and boy are we glad that we chose them!! They were an absolute blast! So much energy, talent and so much fun. Aaron was awesome to work with and even went above and beyond to help us out with an extra sound system for the ceremony when our venue had issues with theirs two days before the wedding. We were so thankful! They announced our entire wedding party perfectly and got every single detail of the night just right. They played awesome jazz music during dinner and then kicked it into high gear playing straight through the night- without even taking a break! We had so many of our guests tell us how awesome our band was and they are still talking about it a month after the wedding!! I would definitely recommend East Coast Soul to anyone looking for a band that will have you and your guests on the dance floor all night long!

  • East Coast Soul was a fantastic addition to our wedding celebration. They played with so much energy and enthusiasm that our guests couldn't stop dancing. The Hora was great, then they played lots of great oldies, and finished the night with some contemporary music. ECS played from 8 to midnight with only a 20 minute break. They can play, they can sing, and they can really dance. Fun to watch even if you're not on the dance floor. Book this band, you won't regret it. They were super awesome and really a great value.

  • East Coast Soul played an amazing setlist that had us as well as our guests dancing all night long; there not a moment when the dance floor was not packed. Our guests raved about ECS and we only hope we have the opportunity to see these guys again at a wedding in the future! If you and your crowd likes to groove, then this is the band for you!
