Harvard Club of Boston Wedding in Boston, MA

December 8, 2012

Ensemble: Stax | Ten Piece

A beautiful wedding at the Harvard Club of Boston in Boston, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble had the guests screaming for an encore!

East Coast Soul was grateful to be asked to join this beautiful couple for their stunning Harvard Club of Boston Wedding in Boston, MA.

Preprations for the couple's Big Day

Our planning for the wedding began many weeks prior, with the bride and groom expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the wedding (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). The bride and groom were heavily involved in this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Boston, MA and carried out our normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for Harvard Club of Boston 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.


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 providing 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.

Harvard Club Wedding


In a lion's share of celebrations, East Coast Soul is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Harvard Club of Boston Wedding was no different.

The couple’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is traditionally one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding. It's a chance for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the evening complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul performances commonly kick off with vintage material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get folks relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, 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 December wedding at Harvard Club of Boston!
