An unforgettable, mid-December wedding at the Oyster Harbors Club on Cape Cod that will forever be remembered as one of East Coast Soul's favorite performances.

Testimonial

"Based on recommendations from others, we went into our wedding with very high expectations for ECS, and somehow they managed to surpass them. The band set exactly the right mood for our wedding with a perfect selection of songs that got everyone on the dance floor. We received countless comments from family and friends regarding ECS, all with lofty praise for their performance and ability to get the wedding guests involved. In addition to their already great selection of music, the band learned several songs for us, including an Irish folk song, that made the music all the more meaningful. Additionally, the band handled the more formal aspects, like the first dance and introduction of the wedding party, with the perfect mix of class and style. Hiring ECS for the reception was one of the best decision we made and I would wholeheartedly recommend them for any wedding or event."

Oyster Harbors Club Wedding

One of East Coast Soul's all time favorite performances

East Coast Soul

East Coast Soul was grateful to be brought to join Maggie S. & Ryan S. for their stunning Oyster Harbors Club Wedding in Osterville, MA.

Preprations for Maggie S. & Ryan S.'s Big Day

Our groundwork for the big day began well ahead, with Maggie S. & Ryan S. expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the big day (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). Maggie S. & Ryan S. were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and super helpful throughout.

Once the big day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Osterville, MA and took care of the normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for Oyster Harbors Club 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.

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 asked to provide 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 providing 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.

Reception

In a majority of weddings, East Coast Soul is asked to provide MC services for the formal portions of the celebrations. This Oyster Harbors Club Wedding was no different.

The couple’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is consistently one of the most unforgettable 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 wedding finished, 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 performances commonly kick off with vintage material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get everyone relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. 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 Maggie S. & Ryan S. for having us at their beautiful December wedding at Oyster Harbors Club! And thank you to Meghann Gregory for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
