September 16, 2016

Emily & Kevin

Ensemble: Stax | Eight Piece

An unreal wedding at the Duxbury Bay Maritime School in Duxbury, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble blew the roof off the place!

East Coast Soul was grateful to be brought to join Emily & Kevin for their stunning Duxbury Bay Maritime School Wedding in Duxbury, MA.

Preprations for Emily & Kevin's Big Day

Our planning for the big day began many weeks prior, with Emily & Kevin sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the big day (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). Emily & Kevin were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the big day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Duxbury, MA and carried out our normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for Duxbury Bay Maritime School weddings. We get a lot of questions about the logistics of loading in to any given venue. This is a part of the day that we take seriously, spending extra time to avoid rushing, and ensuring our gear is properly tuned for the room.

Ceremony

In this case, East Coast Soul was not involved with couple's ceremony, with those arrangements having already been taken care of.

Cocktail Hour

As is common, East Coast Soul was requested to perform cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a great opportunity for the bride and groom to relax after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by providing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Reception

In a lion's share of celebrations, the band is asked to provide MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This Duxbury Bay Maritime School Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is consistently one of the most meaningful parts of the big day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the evening finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a super brief break, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

our shows commonly kick off with vintage material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get folks up on the dance floor with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then moved into playing tunes by artists like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Prince and more. Finally, we ended the night performing contemporary material that everyone could sing along with.

Guests danced non-stop from beginning to end, and we limited our breaks to ensure people had as much time to dance as possible.

Thanks so much to Emily & Kevin for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Duxbury Bay Maritime School!
