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.

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.

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.

You can’t fake this kind of thing.

The core of our strength lies in uncompromising performances based on a finely curated repertoire and delivered with an authentic vibe. We’ve developed this approach through years of experience on the Boston wedding band scene. We work aggressively each and every year to improve what we offer folks, and that commitment isn't going anywhere any time soon. Bottom line, we take this line of work really seriously.

This is a big job.

We encourage you to take your time, browse band in the Boston area. Spend some time on our website learning about our ensembles, our repertoire, and our approach to weddings.

"Everyone at our wedding raved about East Coast Soul. They had our guests on the dance floor from the first song to the very last song of the night. The band played a variety of music that guests of all generations loved and appreciated. Working with East Coast Soul was all around wonderful. Our wedding reception was under a tent in a beautiful field in Maine in not-so-beautiful weather. Not only did the band drive all the way up here from Boston on our big day, but they also had to carry all of their equipment down about half a mile in the rain into the muddy field. They were very gracious and flexible about the last minute changes due to weather. The bands' positive attitudes contributed to the unbelievably joyous and crazy vibe of the party. Everyone was slipping and sliding in their rain boots on the dance floor, singing along to the music. East Coast Soul even surprised us by calling up my sister-in-law to join them on stage for the last song of the night! So many guests asked me where I found East Coast Soul and how I chose the band. From the moment I heard their music on the web, I knew they would be the perfect band for our wedding. I am so glad we hired East Coast Soul; They truly rock."
