August 12, 2017

Sarah & Andrew

Ensemble: King | Seven Piece

A charming wedding at the Hill Farm Inn in Sunderland, VT where East Coast Soul's King ensemble absolutely brought the house down!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be invited 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 many weeks prior, 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 super helpful throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Sunderland, VT and took care of the normal load-in, set up, and sound check process 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 unwind after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by performing a blend of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Hill Farm Inn Wedding


In a lion's share of receptions, we is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the weddings. This Hill Farm Inn Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The 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 evening finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a super brief break, East Coast Soul's King ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

our performances commonly kick off with vintage material. We've found this is a great way to get folks up on the dance floor with songs they're familiar with. 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 Sarah & Andrew for having us at their beautiful August wedding at Hill Farm Inn!
