East Coast Soul Wedding Performance

Hill Farm Inn Wedding in Sunderland, VT

August 12, 2017

Sarah & Andrew

Ensemble: King | Seven Piece

A heartwarming wedding at the Hill Farm Inn in Sunderland, VT where East Coast Soul's King ensemble found it nearly impossible to say goodbye to this particular group of guests!

East Coast Soul was grateful to be brought to join Sarah & Andrew for their stunning Hill Farm Inn Wedding in Sunderland, VT.

Preprations for Sarah & Andrew's Big Day

Our groundwork for the wedding day began months in advance, with Sarah & Andrew expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the wedding day (preparation is a key part of our process). Sarah & Andrew were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Sunderland, VT and began our standard load-in and sound check for Hill Farm Inn weddings. We're often asked about our process for loading in and sound checking at various venues. 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 wonderful chance for the bride and groom to unwind after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by performing 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 bulk of celebrations, East Coast Soul is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the weddings. This Hill Farm Inn Wedding was no different.

The couple’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is invariably one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding day. It's a chance for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the wedding finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick break, East Coast Soul's King ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

our performances often start with older 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 Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, 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 Sarah & Andrew for having us at their beautiful August wedding at Hill Farm Inn!
