About

East Coast Soul is more than a band. We are a collective of Boston, New York, and New England's finest musicians.

Ensembles

Over the years, East Coast Soul's demand has grown exponentially, as has our network of close musical companions. As a result, we've developed into a boutique collective of elite ensembles, each based on the same core repertoire and performance style, but inspired by the unique energy of their musicians and vocalists.

"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"

Repertoire

The core of East Coast Soul's strength lies in a finely curated repertoire based on timeless songs delivered with unparalleled energy and talent.

"...We had 230 guests at our wedding and once the band started, nobody sat down again, even the grandparents! The playlist was amazing - hit after hit of timeless awesome songs... there were literally rows of people at the front of the dance floor just watching and dancing to ECS like we were at a concert..."

Classic material brought with contemporary energy

Your guests are not of one age, background, or demographic. That's why we take pride in being able to provide music from a vast array of musical eras and genres so your entire group of family and friends can feel comfortable and excited about hopping on the dance floor.

"...They absolutely blew the place away. Everyone got up and started dancing immediately. Their bread and butter is Motown and Soul music, but make no mistake, they crushed the modern hits just as much as they did the old school stuff..."

"...The wide variety of music played (from classics to contemporary) was phenomenal for the diverse crowd. The music was AWESOME. The crowd was ALIVE... Everyone from younger relatives to our friends in their 20's to parents and grandparents were on the dance floor until the very end!..."
