Boston's Premier Wedding Band

Learn more about what makes East Coast Soul one of the most talked about Weddings Bands in Boston, and beyond.

The search for your perfect wedding band.

Let’s be honest with each other for a second. Boston wedding bands caught a bad rap there for a while, am I right? If you’ve attended a wedding anytime between 1990 and today, you know the stereotypes. You’ve been there when a band plays cheesy songs that are totally overdone, pulls off a sub-par performances from burned out musicians with bad haircuts (and even worse outfits), or just generally seems disinterested in what should be the most important day of your life. What’s left to like? We hear you. And we feel so lucky that our efforts have been reflected in the voices of our clients.

We set out to change things.

When we formed this wedding band, we wanted to push a few musical boundaries, break away from some performance stereotypes, and see what happened. As a group of close musical friends from the Boston area, we felt as if we had something genuine and real to offer the Boston wedding band scene. We feel so grateful that, in just a few short years, East Coast Soul has gained a reputation as one of Boston’s best wedding bands. And it’s thanks to folks just like you the have allowed us to continue doing what we love. The best way to see how we do things is through our library of live videos.

We didn’t get here overnight.

It’s taken years of hard work refining our repertoire, performance, and vibe to achieve. Now considered one of the most sought after wedding bands in the area, our ensembles perform at over 100 events a year in Boston, across Massachusetts, New England, New York, and beyond. Whether it’s a black tie gala at one of Newport’s historic mansions, or a rustic gathering in the woods of Maine; a beach-side wedding on Cape Cod, or a mountain-top affair in New Hampshire; a barn wedding in Vermont or country-chic affair in Connecticut, East Coast Soul has experienced it all.

Testimonials

Our clients say it better than we ever could. Check out our most recent testimonials below.

"I cannot possibly recommend East Coast Soul highly enough. From the moment we booked them, everything was completely seamless. They were patient and thorough in answering all of our questions and made the planning process absolutely painless. Then came our wedding day. To say they blew us away would be a complete understatement. The energy and talent of this group is absolutely unreal. The way they can read the room to put together a set that keeps the dance floor on fire is incredible. I couldn't even keep count of how many guests told us they were the best band they'd ever seen. Some of our older relatives also let us know they thoroughly enjoyed just sitting and watching them perform - they felt like they were attending a concert. East Coast Soul was a huge part of what made our wedding so incredible - if you have the chance to work with them, do not hesitate. They are simply the best. "

"The BEST. If your considering ECS for your event or wedding, this should be the easiest decision you’ll make. I’ve attended 5 weddings (including my own) with ECS, and they bring 150% every time. Even people who are rhythmically challenged will dance up a storm, trust me. Total pleasure to deal work with Sean, Art and the whole crew from start to finish. Your guests will be complimenting you on the band for months to come. "

"We hired ECS after seeing them at my cousin's wedding in 2015, so we knew they were great. East Coast Soul was absolutely unbelievable at our wedding. Their energy is AWESOME and their dance moves make the performance. The entire night our dance floor was packed thanks to them! Our wedding coordinator said he's never seen that many people on the dance floor for that long! My husband (who has a good voice) sang Shout with the band and it was so nice that they made it happen. My mom requested a special song at the ceremony and the band learned all of the words and sang it beautiful. We had one singer and a pianist at the ceremony. "

"In planning our daughter's wedding we really wanted the music to stand out, and with East Coast Soul we got exactly what we wanted. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the dance floor was full the entire night, and those not dancing were standing to watch the band because they were such amazing entertainers! Our guests could not stop talking about this band! And band managers get bonus points for being so delightful to work with right from our first contact months before the wedding. ECS was one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding. Highest possible recommendations""

"These guys are truly amazing! They kept the dance floor packed all night and several of our guests approached us to say how exceptional they were. I wanted to sing to my now wife and they helped me coordinate a surprise and backing vocals/music which was really awesome. Very organized and easy to work with! "

"East Coast Soul was one of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding day. They had practically everyone on the dance floor including our so called “non-dancers” at the wedding. Their energy was unbelievable and we cannot recommend them highly enough. A special thank you to ECS who went out of their way to help us play a small video at our wedding as a way of remembering my husband's mom. "

"We just wanted to thank you for making our wedding day such a special occasion! East Coast Soul is fantastic, and you were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. You brought great energy to our wedding day, and we heard nothing but rave reviews throughout the day from our family and friends. It’s clear that you are passionate about what you do, and it showed in your performances throughout the day—from providing music for our ceremony to the performance you gave during the reception. You truly helped set the tone and mood for our memorable day and were a huge part of making the night a hassle- and stress-free success. The setlist was well thought out and kept everyone on the dance floor for the entire night; we also appreciate that you were mindful of our personal preferences, as well as those of guests of several generations. We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day so much fun!"
