A breathtaking June wedding at the The Liberty Hotel in Boston, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble left absolutely everything out on the dance floor!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be brought to join Abby & Peter for their stunning The Liberty Hotel Wedding in Boston, MA.

Preprations for Abby & Peter's Big Day

Our groundwork for the wedding day began well ahead, with Abby & Peter offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the wedding day (preparation is a key part of our process). Abby & Peter were heavily involved in this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Boston, MA and took care of the normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for The Liberty Hotel 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.

Bride and Groom Dancing - Liberty Hotel Wedding

Cocktail Hour

As is common, East Coast Soul was asked to provide cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a great opportunity for the bride and groom to unwind after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by providing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.


In a majority of wedding celebrations, East Coast Soul is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This The Liberty Hotel Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The newly married couple's first dance is consistently one of the most unforgettable 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 wedding complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a super brief break, East Coast Soul's Stax 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 relaxed and dancing with songs they know and love. Artists like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned into performing music 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 Abby & Peter for having us at their beautiful June wedding at The Liberty Hotel! And thank you to Shana Sureck for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
