Exchange Conference Center Wedding in Boston, MA

May 12, 2012

Ensemble: Stax | Ten Piece

An amazing wedding at the Exchange Conference Center in Boston, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble blew the roof off the place!

East Coast Soul was fortunate to be brought to join this beautiful couple for their stunning Exchange Conference Center Wedding in Boston, MA.

Preprations for the couple's Big Day

Our groundwork for the big day began well ahead, with the bride and groom expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the big day (preparation is a key part of our process). The bride and groom were heavily involved in this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the big day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Boston, MA and took care of the normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for Exchange Conference Center weddings. Our process for loading in and setting up at any given venue is a big part of our preparation process. 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 often the case, East Coast Soul was asked to provide cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a great opportunity for the bride and groom to relax after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by performing a blend of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more.

Reception

In a lion's share of wedding celebrations, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Exchange Conference Center Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The couple's first dance is invariably one of the most emotional parts of the big day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this portion of the wedding finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

our performances often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get everyone up on the dance floor with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned into playing tunes by artists like Whitney Houston, Prince, Michael Jackson 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 this beautiful couple for having us at their beautiful May wedding at Exchange Conference Center!
