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.

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.

If you’re just starting your search for the perfect Boston Wedding Band, we understand it’s a huge undertaking Music is, after all, one of the most (if not the most important) piece of the wedding puzzle. 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. When you’re ready, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions about how we could fit into your plans.

"This is a belated thank-you to say how grateful we are to the East Coast Soul Band for being so great at our daughter Nina and son-in-law Jerome's very wet but wonderful wedding reception on May 25th in Maine. We particularly appreciated that the band seemed unfazed by the weather and that in spite of the conditions and in spite of having to carry your equipment through the mud-- your whole group went with the flow and then sang and played with fantastic musicianship and enthusiasm! From the first song most of our guests were on the dance floor and most of us never sat down! Everyone was asking who you were and everyone said that the band was AMAZING! We also appreciated the lower key jazz session through the appetizer serving time which was equally as wonderful. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! All in all, your music made this special day so much more awsome. I woke up that morning listening to the rain pouring down and I was filled with dread but after a breath taking wedding ceremony and after I walked through that tent and heard the East coast Soul Band playing, I just screamed out with joy because the celebration of Jerome and Nina's love was really what the day was all about! Your band was one of the best parts of a truly magical time. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! Nina's mom"
