  • Okay, you think wedding band, and you get images of the movie wedding singer, maybe remember a wedding you were at and think of the Hokey Pokey and the random DJ. I had no idea that when we hired North Coast, that people would still be talking about "the band at your wedding!" 7 months later!!!! To say they were the best band you have ever heard would be the understatement of the year! After listening to some online samples and getting a taste for what they sounded like, we started asking around. The word on the street? These guys were the real deal. Doing some more digging and guess what we found... yep.. you guessed it.. if you want a wedding done right? This is the answer. From the second the first key was hit on the piano and the moment their amazing voices hit the microphones it was a non stop real life performance for the ages. It began with the amazing piano work during our ceremony, and was followed up by incredible vocals during our father daughter dance, first dance,... Read more

    Hi Michael- Can't thank you enough for having the band, for the kind words, and for taking the time to post these awesome reviews. Thanks you from all of us at North Coast Orchestra.

  • North Coast Orchestra was everything we could’ve wanted and more in a wedding band! Matt (band manager) was so easy to work with. The band was fantastic and kept our dance floor filled all night, right up to the last song!

  • NCO was the very first thing we booked when we were planning our wedding bc I wanted a KICK ASS BAND and let me tell you, NCO nailed it!!! Not only were they incredible to work with throughout the planning process, but they also took time to learn a few extra songs we wanted with no cost or hassle. They had the party going all night long and I am still getting compliments on how KICK ASS they were! I would get married all over again 1000 times and have NCO be the band - they KILLED IT!

  • My daughter was recently married and had her reception at Villa Terrace. She and her husband wanted live music, but not the typical "YMCA"-playing sound, but rather more like standards and some Ed Sheeran-type songs. We also were limited because of the size of Villa Terrace, so went with a vocalist and three musicians to play. North Coast Quartet was phenomenal! Extremely professional, great communication, accommodating, friendly, and they were spot-on with the songs they played. They even learned a song played as a surprise to the newlyweds-Old Irish Blessing. Beautiful!!! We received so many compliments on the music, and Monday morning I had a guest ask for the group's information to pass along to a friend planning a wedding. That's about as big a compliment as can be received, and they deserve it! Honestly, I knew from the moment I booked them to play that everything would be perfect and it was wonderful not to have to give the music another thought. Don't hesitate to hire North Coa...

  • This was the best thing I could have done for our wedding. The band kept in contact with us, made sure they understood exactly what we wanted for music. Learned a song we wanted that wasn't typically on their play list and were 100% accommodating. Our guests continually came up to us and told us that we had the best wedding they ever attended. I know they were referring to the awesome band. Even the bar tenders were rocking!!!! Even the over 60 crowd danced the night away until the very end! I would highly recommend the North Coast Orchestra.

  • My wife and I hired the North Coast Orchestra to play our wedding reception. We worked with Matt of North Coast Management. The work we did with Matt before the event made the reception go off without a hitch. Matt helped us with logistics related to the evening schedule, and his advice was great. We had about 120 people at our reception, and virtually every single guest came up to us and said we had an amazing band. North Coast Orchestra kept the energy level sky high and the dance floor crowded, with guests of all ages. The band's catalog was huge, ranging from old standards to current radio hits. Their sets were also long. They only took 2 short breaks over the course of 4 hours post-dinner. They were outstanding. If you're looking for a band for a wedding reception, or any big event, you will not be disappointed by North Coast Orchestra, or with working with Matt. Strongly recommend!

  • After attending numerous weddings in Chicago and the East Coast last year, it became clear that we wanted a band at our wedding this June. After reading reviews of NCO and asking friends in the area, we decided to book NCO. We had a good feeling about them, but they far exceed our expectations! They were professional, flexible, TALENTED, and a FABULOUSLY FUN TIME! Our guests from out of town and locally were wildly impressed with their ability to keep people on the dance floor and their array of music played. Our wedding would not have been the same without them - than you NCO!

  • We booked the North Coast Orchestra for our September wedding after hearing great reviews from our friends and in the end our expectations were exceeded! As soon as the band started up our dance floor was filled! It has been a month and I am still getting compliments about how great the band was and how much fun everyone had. Thank you to Matt, Bob, and the rest of the band!

  • North Coast Orchestra was a must have for us after we saw them at an event in 2016. They offer something for every single person in the room; from the grandparents that love just listening and viewing live music all the way to the bridal party that is dancing the night away. North Coast Orchestra delivers an incredible performance from start to finish and are great to work with through the planning phase (Thank you Matt!). In addition, they were able to learn a very special song for our Mother/Son dance and the delivery was unforgettable and made the dance even more special than we had imagined possible. If there were more than 5 stars to give, they deserve it! Book with North Coast and you will have a performance to remember for ever.

  • Do not hesitate to book Matt and his crew! This band is sure to get your guests up on to the dance floor and moving and those who want to stay seated will surely be entertained. They are the real deal. They play all the old hits as well as pop music so everyone young and old can enjoy.

  • We had a fantastic experience with North Coast Orchestra overall. There were a few hiccups with their payment process at the beginning when we were submitting our deposit and the receptionist didn't know what to do when we dropped off the final payment in person.. it was strange but taken care of after all. The only complaint I have is that we asked if they needed vendor meals and we provided them for the members arriving early to set up. But, we were told the rest of the band did not need any food. However, I later found out that they ate a lot of our late night appetizer/snack which they were not included in counts for since I was told they would not be consuming the catered food. As far as performance goes they were AMAZING. I cannot say enough how packed the dancefloor was and how many compliments we got on the band. After finding them online and only seeing promo videos we were hopeful they would be just as good in person - and they were better. The lead singers were phenomenal, ... Read more

  • North Coast Orchestra was wonderful at our wedding! They exceeded our expectations! I am a professional musician and was blown away with their performance - excellent song choices, well-rehearsed, great gear, professional set up, and much ease. Everyone at the wedding raved about them, and they had the whole party dancing all night! My only qualm (hence the 4/5 on flexibility and 4.5/5 on professionalism) is with regards to our first dance song. The song we chose is perhaps not as well known, so there is not readily available sheet music out there. As a result, they asked (about 2 weeks before the wedding) that we either pay to have someone chart the song, dance to the original recording (DJ style), or pick a different song. We ended up dancing to the recording; I appreciated the options but did not want to pay an additional fee to have the song charted. It was just one song, so it wasn't a big deal.
