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.

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.

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.

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.

"We hired EAST COAST SOUL for our daughter, Kelley's wedding (9-18-2010-Grafton, VT). Living in California I left the decision to hire a band up to my soon to be son-in-law, Jeff. Jeff is a Musician himself and knows good music when he hears it. I was skeptical having only pursed the website prior to the Wedding. I was blown away, this is the best group of talented musicians and vocalists I have heard in a long time. WOW, I cannot say enough about this Band - from the musicians to the vocalists - it was truly a SPECTACULAR evening. The band is an intricate part of the reception - the band can make or ruin a reception - EAST COAST SOUL made our reception. We did not want the MUSIC to end, thus enjoying two encores! We received many comments on how great the band was! I cannot believe there were 11-members in a tiny space - EAST COAST SOUL pulled off a GREAT evening! If anyone wants to hire a talented and highly entertaining musical group for any occasion - I HIGHLY recommend EAST COAST SOUL!!! THANK-YOU EAST COAST SOUL for making Jeff & Kelley's wedding reception truly unforgettable."

Testimonials

Testimonials and reviews do more to explain our style than we ever could.

"We were referred to East Coast Soul by a friend shortly after our engagement. I can honestly say booking the band absolutely made our wedding. From the outset, Sean was responsive and exceptionally helpful in terms of booking and securing a date, confirming band members, etc. We caught up with Art shortly before the wedding and went through logistics, song choices, day of schedule, timeline, etc. We truly felt like all of our concerns were heard and questions addressed. Then came the wedding – we had East Coast Soul perform at our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The ceremony and cocktail hour were just perfect – and the reception was absolutely out of this world. East Coast Soul had our entire (and I mean entire) wedding out on the dance floor. They brought great energy, a broad array of expertly-performed songs, incredible dance moves and an all around amazing performance. During the wedding, I took a step away from the action so I could take it all in – and I saw my friends, dancing with my parents friends, who were dancing with my husband’s family, etc. It was incredible to see all of our wedding guests enjoying the dance floor together. In the weeks after our wedding, I had a range of wedding guests reach out to us, complementing us on our choice of band and asking where we’d found them, etc. I would recommend East Coast Soul all day, every day. They truly made our wedding a magical day / night that we’ll cherish forever."
