About

East Coast Soul is more than just another Boston wedding band. We are a passionate collective of musicians focused on providing an unparalleled level of musicianship and professionalism to your event.

Boston Wedding Band

The old notions what “wedding bands” entail are long gone.

Our generation of music lovers require more from their live entertainment experience. We believe deeply the need for an uncompromising performance based on a repertoire that has been finely tuned through years of experience. Our clients share in this belief, and that connection helps us serve as a reflection of who they are on the most important day of their life.

“Incredible, Amazing, Superb… “

This and many other testimonials can be found on our testimonials page. This features reviews from dozens of Boston weddings, as well as others from around the region. The truth is, we hate to brag. Fortunately, our efforts have been reflected in the faces of our clients, their friends, and their families. Because of the wonderful feedback we have received, East Coast Soul is proud to be mentioned among the truly elite Boston Wedding Bands. This is because, at the end of the day, your event is not ‘just another gig’ for East Coast Soul. Far from it, the band rallies around each of its performances, creating a truly special atmosphere for each and every wedding performance. We develop close relationships with our clients from planning to performance. Once the big day arrives, we revel in providing the celebration that you’ve had in mind all along, and so much more.

 

Boston Wedding Band - Artists For Humanity Epicenter - Dan

Boston Wedding Band

Every performance we give is special…

…and we want you to feel that way as much as we do. We pride ourselves on being a flexible Boston wedding band that will adapt to changing circumstances and special requests. Things typically come up on the big day itself or immediately before. Special announcements need to be made, the order of events needs to be changed, sets need to be extended, etc. We want you to know that, unlike many Boston wedding bands, we’ll work with you in these circumstances, and we won’t nickel and dime you for changes such as those I just mentioned. Typically this is what makes events like this fun for us.

Testimonials

The question you need answered is, “Okay, why East Coast Soul?”

Yes, we’ve been blessed with some incredible talent – our members have performed on prime-time television, shared stages with Grammy Award winning musicians, teach at Universities, and everything in between – but more than that, our hope is to truly connect with the folks who hire us and be a reflection of their style. Your wedding day is the most important of your life. We revel in the responsibility of being a major part of this celebration. Whether we’re at the top of your list for entertainment or not, we encourage people to check out other Boston wedding bands to see if we are in fact the best fit. When you’re ready, we’d love to talk with you about working together.

Testimonials

Lauren W. – Wedding, Ipswich MA

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 still be heard through the Estate. Although they had not planned to play these instruments during cocktail hour originally, they quickly adapted to the situation and had our guests dancing even before dinner was served. As soon as the generator arrived, they plugged right in and led our party through the most epic dance party.

I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from friends and family since our wedding. And I already have friends asking for their contact information for their own weddings. I couldn’t be happier that my husband and I chose Sean and Aaron and the rest of the band from East Coast Soul. They provided amazing acoustics, awesome dance moves, and an all around seamless evening despite everything that was thrown at them. Not to mention, they are incredibly affordable!

Thank you, East Coast Soul – you were the BEST!!

Jamie Lynn H. – Wedding – Sturbridge, MA

The wedding day surpassed anything we could have hoped for. If I had a dollar for everytime someone came up to us during the reception and raved about the band I could pay off all my student loans. you are all true artists and you made the night special for us in every way. People were so impressed with everything you did from the song selections, to singing, to dancing, to your energy, to how late you played, and your incredible sound. Be proud of what you all have put together because I believe you are the best out there based on other weddings I’ve been to and what all my family and friends said as well. I will look forward to calling you again for other parties down the road…and I’m sure others will as well

Denise M. – Wedding, Garrison NY

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 specifications a breeze, but most importantly, they travelled within a reasonable price and ROCKED our wedding. I am still riding the wedding high, and each phone call I receive mentions first how incredible the band was, second how happy the groom and I looked dancing. To me that says it all, best night of my life and I am still singing random songs that ECS played off the list. What a wonderful crew, I would be honored to see them perform again. We will recommend to everyone if they want A BAND…A REAL BAND, to enhance and create the beauty of their event, EAST COAST SOUL is the way…. Love you guys, and so many thanks!
