East Coast Soul Wedding Performance

Hill Farm Inn Wedding in Sunderland, VT

August 12, 2017

Sarah & Andrew

Ensemble: King | Seven Piece

An unbelievable wedding at the Hill Farm Inn in Sunderland, VT where East Coast Soul's King ensemble blew the roof off the place!

East Coast Soul was blessed 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 planning for the big day began months in advance, with Sarah & Andrew expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the big day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Sarah & Andrew were heavily involved in this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the big day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Sunderland, VT and carried out our normal load-in, set up, and sound check process 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.


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 often the case, East Coast Soul was asked to provide 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 listening to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more.

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

The couple’s First Dance

The newly married couple's first dance is consistently one of the most emotional parts of the big day. It's a chance for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the evening finished, 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 shows often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get guests up on the dance floor with songs they know and love. Artists like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, 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!
