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.

"We could not be happier with the band we selected for our wedding in Maine. As an Atlanta-based couple, it was challenging to research vendors for our destination wedding from home, but after scouring the internet for a band that had the soul/old- and new-school funk vibe that we wanted, we were so fortunate to happen upon East Coast Soul's website. While we were impressed with their video clips and their extensive repertoire, we knew that we were still taking a chance on a band that we did not have the opportunity to see live until our wedding. They exceeded our every expectation! The vocalists astounded us and our guests with their pipes and the soul with which they sang every song-- their voices were astounding. Sean, who was also the drummer, was great and easy to work with from the beginning of the wedding planning phases. The band members' clear passion for their music perfectly complemented the vibe of abundant love and bliss of togetherness and unity that characterized our entire wedding weekend. Everyone was ecstatic about the music. I might add, there were many professional musicians among our guests, and they were all supremely impressed with the skill and groove of this smaller ensemble that had the intensity and full sound of any larger group we'd ever heard. They had an almost tangible chemistry. We were also fortunate to be able to hang out with three of the band members during our small, casual and intimate impromptu after-party in the lounge of our hotel. Not only are they amazing musicians, but they are absolutely wonderful people. I am happy to have made three new friends. Importantly, as my husband and I are an interracial couple with an extremely diverse family and group of friends (ethnically, politically, life journeys etc.), we were delighted by East Coast Soul's own diversity that quite perfectly reflected us, and what we stand for and cherish. We believe that the unity in their diversity is an integral part of what makes them such an incredible band. We hope to hear them perform again at some point, and we are looking forward to studio recordings that they might be releasing in the near future. Bottom line-- you absolutely cannot go wrong with this band. You and all of your guests will be talking about the band at your wedding for a long, long time."
