Ensemble: King | Seven Piece

A beautiful wedding at the Hill Farm Inn in Sunderland, VT where East Coast Soul's King ensemble had a kickass night of music!

East Coast Soul was fortunate 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 preparations for the wedding day began well ahead, 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. 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 great opportunity for the bride and groom to relax after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We do our part 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.

In a majority of wedding celebrations, we is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Hill Farm Inn Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The couple's first dance is consistently 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 evening complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick break, East Coast Soul's King ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul dance performances often start with older 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 Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then transitioned into performing music 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!
