Exchange Conference Center Wedding in Boston, MA

May 12, 2012

Ensemble: Stax | Ten Piece

An unreal wedding at the Exchange Conference Center in Boston, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble absolutely brought the house down!

East Coast Soul was fortunate to be asked 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 wedding day began months in advance, with the bride and groom offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the wedding day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). The bride and groom were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Boston, MA and carried out our normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for Exchange Conference Center weddings. Being prepared for load-in and set-up at any given venue is a critical part of our workflow. 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.


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 wonderful chance for the bride and groom to unwind after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by performing a blend of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.

In a bulk 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 groom and bride’s First Dance

The newly married couple's first dance is consistently one of the most meaningful parts of the wedding day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this portion of the wedding complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick 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 guests up on the dance floor with songs they know and love. Artists like Sam and Dave, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then moved 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!
