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 asked 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 preparations for the wedding began well ahead, with Maggie S. & Ryan S. sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). Maggie S. & Ryan S. were heavily involved in this advanced planning and super helpful throughout.

Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Osterville, MA and moved swiftly through our standard 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 often the case, East Coast Soul was asked to provide cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a wonderful chance for the bride and groom to relax after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by providing a variety of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Reception

In a lion's share of weddings, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the weddings. This Oyster Harbors Club Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The couple's first dance is almost always one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding. 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 as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul shows often start with older material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get everyone relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then moved 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!
