Testimonials

"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"
