"My daughter's wedding was just last weekend at Cruiseport in Gloucester. She goes to school in the UK so I also had the task of finding a band for the wedding while she was out of town. The one thing she wanted most for her reception was a live band that would get people dancing. I should also tell you that I'm a musician, so my standards are pretty high. I looked at a lot of bands before deciding upon East Coast Soul, and I can tell you without reservation they were a terrific choice. This band literally had everyone on the dance floor from the first song to the last. We asked them to play a lot of R&B, Motown, Soul and Funk so it's all very infectious, danceable music to begin with. But when you add to this their incredible musicianship, excellent sound system, and amazing vocalists, you just know you are in for a fantastic evening the moment they start playing. Another good example was after their short break. Our venue had a ballroom and also an outside deck. During the band's break, almost everyone went out to the deck. But when the band returned, everybody was back inside and on the dance floor again by the 2nd song of the set. Their singers would also step out and join people on the dance floor with a wireless mic, and this kicked the party up to a whole new level. I have to say, ECS are also consummate professionals and very easy to work with. Again, I've worked with a lot of musicians over the years, and I was so impressed with how friendly and accommodating they were. As a special request I asked if one of their singers would join me while I played a song for my daughter on piano. He delivered a performance that brought the house down, and it's something I will never forget. These guys really care about what they are doing. Again, I simply can't praise them highly enough, and if you asked the bride, the groom, or anyone else there they would tell you the same thing. Everyone kept saying how incredible they were and asking me where did I find this band. We had an absolutely perfect day, my daughter was so happy, and East Coast Soul really made the evening. I would recommend them to anyone for a wedding or any event. They are truly one of the area's finest performing acts."
