Testimonials from Massachusetts Weddings

"There aren't enough words to express to you how amazing teh ECS team is. I'm pretty sure our guests were talking about the band, Torrence and Traci more than us the night of-which is totally fine because they killed it. Several couples at the wedding wanted "the name of the band" because they want to book ESC for their wedding, and our parents and grandparents were brought back to a time of classic music, filled with rhythm and love. Aside from the raw talent of the Ensemble, the whole team are some of the most considerate, kind and down to earth people we have met in awhile. The whole team felt like guests and old friends that just happen to be amazing performers and musicians. We are trying to come up with another reason to throw a party just to hire them again. From the onset, ECS have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Buttoned up and organized which was equally as rewarding as music the night of. Everyone left happy and tired from dancing and smiling. Selfishly, the 3 songs that my husband and I wanted to dance to at our wedding were preformed to perfection, which gave us those rare opportunities where we got to show how much we love each other and dance to songs we loved which made our night special. They nailed it."

"I cannot possibly recommend East Coast Soul highly enough. From the moment we booked them, everything was completely seamless. They were patient and thorough in answering all of our questions and made the planning process absolutely painless. Then came our wedding day. To say they blew us away would be a complete understatement. The energy and talent of this group is absolutely unreal. The way they can read the room to put together a set that keeps the dance floor on fire is incredible. I couldn't even keep count of how many guests told us they were the best band they'd ever seen. Some of our older relatives also let us know they thoroughly enjoyed just sitting and watching them perform - they felt like they were attending a concert. East Coast Soul was a huge part of what made our wedding so incredible - if you have the chance to work with them, do not hesitate. They are simply the best. "

"My (now) husband and I knew we wanted to make sure the music at our wedding blew people away. Being musicians ourselves, having an outstanding band was probably our top priority in planning our wedding. East Coast Soul did not disappoint, to say the least. I can't begin to name all the people who have expressed how impressed they were with the music during our reception. People who weren't even at the wedding commented on how awesome they heard it was! It's been over a month since we got married and my husband and I are still receiving compliments on the band. Each musician made the whole performance feel very personalized and special - something we will never forget. If music is important to you, East Coast Soul will deliver THE best experience!"

"You do not need to search any further - you should hire East Coast Soul for your wedding! They are INCREDIBLE. We used the Stax ensemble and so many guests made a point of letting us know after the wedding how impressed they were by the sound and physical energy the band brought to the stage. The band played for several hours straight without breaks and kept the dance floor energy up - and we had a blast the entire time. Everyone from our little cousins to our grandparents were on the dance floor absolutely loving the music. And Sean was an excellent emcee the whole night which made the intros, cocktail music, and speeches run perfectly. Not to mention the band was very easy to work with and accommodated all of our requests - including having family members play with them and asking them to learn new songs for our dances. Guests haven't stopped asking for more information on this band for family / friends weddings because they are truly the best band you can hire for your wedding. Don't wait to reach out or they'll be booked for your big day!"

"We are so pleased with the impact that East Coast Soul made on our wedding day! We booked ECS 3 months before our date; the booking and planning process were so smooth, and they kept us calm throughout. We didn't get a chance to meet the band beforehand, so we went off of online reviews, and a previous client's reference which was helpful and reassuring. They are so talented, were great entertainment at our wedding and played beautifully during our ceremony. We were most impressed with their willingness and ability to include our culture's traditional music, and played an incredible Hora! We are hopeful we will be able to see ECS at a wedding in the future! "

"Brought Down the House! Rodney, Carrie, and the band were incredible. We trusted them with playing our first dance, and they crushed it. The set list found the perfect balance to get both younger and older guests on the dance floor throughout the night. The only time they played a song that was not absolutely loved by our guests, they adapted and played an abbreviated version before transitioning to another song. We received innumerable compliments on the band, and a family member that is planning a wedding asked us for their contact information. In short, you cannot go wrong with this band!"

Ben (Groom)

"East Coast Soul is awesome! I have been to many weddings with great bands, an East Coast Soul is unequivocally the best I have ever seen. I lost count of the number of people that came up to me during our wedding and in the days that followed to say: "they were the best wedding band I have ever heard." Our friends and family love to dance and have a good time, and East Coast Soul provided four hours of non-stop entertainment. Working with the band was quite easy: they are exceptionally well organized and make sure they are on the same page as you weeks before the big day. After filling out their survey, the band clearly totally understood the vibe we are looking for at the wedding, and even made suggestions of additional songs/artists to include that fit exactly with the kind of music we wanted. I cannot describe how comforting it was to be sure the band understood what we were shooting for. By the time the wedding rolled around, we had very high expectations given how great the band had been to work with, and then they blew our expectations out of the water! The dance floor was absolutely full from the opening song (Hold On, I'm Comin' by Sam and Dave) until the last song (Shout) four hours later. Amazing band, extremely versatile. Would recommend to anyone."

"Everything about this band is top-notch. From our initial interactions with Sean who walked us through a rundown of ECS' vibe and approach and answered all our questions, to the handoff to Art, who was present, prompt, and enthusiastic through all the details, to the actual day-of execution with Torrence, Traci, and the entire Soulsville ensemble...it was ALL flawless and magical. All of our guests RAVED (and the raving has continued!) with a special shoutout to Torrence. The energy was so high that the floor was literally shaking. We've never experienced a hora so lively (and so long!), and the surprise Don't Stop Believing (everyone thought we planned that) was the perfect way to end this magical night. Our videographer told my husband that he's going to be hard-pressed to find a background song to capture all the energy...and that was just after hour 1 of dancing."

"ECS was the best wedding planning decision I made. They put on a show my friends and family will never forget. They hit different genres, across generations, and catered to my very specific requests! Could not be happier!"

"East Coast Soul's Atlantic Ensemble was absolutely INCREDIBLE! They were really responsive and easy to plan with, and their performance was top notch. Everyone who attended our wedding raved about how incredible the band was and that they'd never seen so many guests out on the dance floor at a wedding before. They played an epic hora which got every single guest out on the floor. They also did a wonderful job with music for our ceremony (solo guitarist) and cocktail hour (jazz duo). We can't say enough amazing things about East Coast Soul! Hire them now."

Sarah (Bride)

"We booked East Coast Soul - Torrence and Traci (also known as the Soulsville Ensemble) and had an 8 piece band for our 8/27/2016 wedding (Venue: Old Sturbridge Village). Our package included a 2 piece jazz ensemble for our cocktail hour. We opted for recorded music during our ceremony and had ECS provide the mics/sound. Booking this band was by far a game changer for our wedding and one of the best decisions we made!!! People were on their feet from the minute our reception started until the end of the night! We received SO MANY compliments on the band. One person commented that before he rounded the corner the song playing sounded so much like the original recording that he didn't realize they were performing it. I will admit that I originally had thought we should consider a DJ for our wedding to save money, however, when we went to a friend's wedding one month after we got engaged, it was clear that their live band made the night unforgettable. The next day we scoured reviews of Boston area bands and booked this group based on reviews and sound clips from their website alone. It's a big investment, but 100% worth it!!! ECS was very organized and thorough in walking through the night with us. We worked with Art in organizing our details for the day of and Torrence did an awesome job as our emcee with the night running smoothly. My husband felt strongly that we should let them "perform what they do best" rather than be specific about songs and they nailed it! We had so much fun dancing the night away and the energy in the room was clear. We continue to receive compliments on the band to this day! Don't hesitate, book ECS!! "

"We hired East Coast Soul for our wedding. Fabulous music, great energy. The band obviously just loves to play and it comes through in their performance. They also handled the recorded music for our ceremony and played the piano and saxophone during cocktail hour. They had a flat rate for the whole night and were totally flexible with us when we had last minute changes, which we really appreciated! Art and Sean are so easy to work with and respond very quickly and provide a detailed questionnaire and rundown ahead of time. The saxophonist also did some amazing improv that had everyone clapping during the reception. It’s like getting a show! We highly recommend them!"

Alison (Bride)

"ECS MADE our wedding—all the guests had an absolute blast, and we were blown away by both the energy put forth by all the musicians as well as the musical quality. We got more compliments on the band than we could ever have imagined. Guests were even telling us that they "felt like the went to a concert" that night. I couldn't be happier with our decision to work with ECS. They were professional and communicative leading up to the wedding, and shined brilliantly during the day-of performance. We can't thank the band enough."

Jeff (Groom)

Groton, MA
August 18, 2018
"Simply put ECS are the best wedding band on the face of the Earth! Not only are their musicians incredibly talented, but they absolutely nailed the feel we we're going for the entirety of the night. Young and old alike did not stop dancing the entire evening, and the feedback we got form our guests overwhelmingly echoed the statements above. Additionally, their staff were incredibly professional, attentive and personable, and made the entire process seamless and easy. My wife and I cannot speak highly enough of ECS and would recommend them to anyone and everyone in a heartbeat! "

Russ (Groom)

Westport, MA
June 30, 2018
"The BEST. If your considering ECS for your event or wedding, this should be the easiest decision you’ll make. I’ve attended 5 weddings (including my own) with ECS, and they bring 150% every time. Even people who are rhythmically challenged will dance up a storm, trust me. Total pleasure to deal work with Sean, Art and the whole crew from start to finish. Your guests will be complimenting you on the band for months to come. "

Sean (Groom)

"We hired ECS after seeing them at my cousin's wedding in 2015, so we knew they were great. East Coast Soul was absolutely unbelievable at our wedding. Their energy is AWESOME and their dance moves make the performance. The entire night our dance floor was packed thanks to them! Our wedding coordinator said he's never seen that many people on the dance floor for that long! My husband (who has a good voice) sang Shout with the band and it was so nice that they made it happen. My mom requested a special song at the ceremony and the band learned all of the words and sang it beautiful. We had one singer and a pianist at the ceremony. "

Kelsie (Bride)

"In planning our daughter's wedding we really wanted the music to stand out, and with East Coast Soul we got exactly what we wanted. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the dance floor was full the entire night, and those not dancing were standing to watch the band because they were such amazing entertainers! Our guests could not stop talking about this band! And band managers get bonus points for being so delightful to work with right from our first contact months before the wedding. ECS was one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding. Highest possible recommendations""

Franca (Mother of the Bride)

"ECS is AMAZING! Hands down one of the highlights of our wedding. We first saw ECS at an event for work a few weeks after our engagement and we were thoroughly impressed. We thought there was no chance we could have them at our wedding, but fortunately they were available on our date and the price was reasonable. Sean and Art were a pleasure to work with and helped to understand our vision for the day. They learned a couple of songs that weren’t on their normal song list and sounded just like the recording with their own unique flair. At one point in the night, they even let me get on stage and sing with them. As most reviews say, our guests could not stop talking about the band a month later are still talking about them today. If you are looking for a professional, extremely talented, flexible, and energetic band, ECS is the band for you."

Winston (Groom)

Plymouth, MA

"Absolutely unbelievable! I first saw ECS in 2011 when they were performing in Boston. I knew then that I wanted them for my wedding someday! Over the next few years I actually used them for a couple of corporate events as I am an event planner by trade. Finally when I got engaged in 2015, they were literally my 3rd call after my family to say "It's time to finally perform for me!". I worked with Sean & Art leading up to the wedding on exactly what I wanted and they did more than deliver. They got every detail exactly as I wanted-include a music mix for my Father/Daugther dance. As a former wedding coordinator, I was very particular that I wanted our music to be the "key feature" of the event- after all, that's what people remember the most! Wedding day came and ECS killed it- they performed our first dance which was a country song- a bit out of their element but you'd never know it! (Dan & Shay, From the Ground Up). The kept the crowd on the floor the ENTIRE night- including my 85 year old aunt!! At the end of the night, my guests were literally yelling "encore, encore". When else do you see that at a WEDDING?! I honestly can't say enough good things about ECS. I can't think of anyone else that even compares to the level of entertainment they provide. I can 200% guarantee that if you book them you will love them just as much as I did- well a close second anyways ;) Thank you Sean, Art & Crew for making our night SO special! We love you guys! "

Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had and how amazing the band was. Our dance floor was jam packed all night long! They are so talented and have so much energy! I highly recommend them to anyone for a future event! "

"East Coast Soul was amazing! It's all anyone wants to talk about when the subject of my wedding comes up--and we had a lot of other awesome things happen. They were so upbeat, easy to work with, and most importantly, entertaining! Not to mention they were the most affordable band I looked at (you work directly with them so no management company premium). HIGHLY recommend!"

"East Coast Soul played at our wedding in Salem in July - month later, our guests are still raving about how we had the best band ever! From the very first song, the dance floor was packed and it stayed that way until the end of the night. The singers were absolutely amazing and my friends are still talking about them - they got so into the music, dancing and giving a great performance that everyone else did too. They also did a great job with the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour, with acoustic versions of songs we had selected for the ceremony and a jazz trio during the cocktail hour. They were great to work with and made the whole process go so smoothly. Hiring East Coast Soul was hands-down the best decision we made to turn our wedding into an unforgettable night for everyone! Thank you all! "

"I can't say enough about how incredible East Coast Soul was at our wedding. From the first conversation with Sean, I knew they would be awesome. Sean, Arthur and the whole band could not have been more flexible, amenable and just awesome to deal with from day one. And the music!! They were awesome! So much energy! Such an incredible set list! The dance floor was PACKED the entire night. Five stars is not enough for East Coast Soul. We really can't recommend them highly enough."

"These guys are truly amazing! They kept the dance floor packed all night and several of our guests approached us to say how exceptional they were. I wanted to sing to my now wife and they helped me coordinate a surprise and backing vocals/music which was really awesome. Very organized and easy to work with! "

"Best wedding band ever! Our guests were simultaneously stunned and thrilled. We couldn't believe the amazing dance party they threw. They also learned two songs for us and were a huge help with logistics including sound equipment for the ceremony. Every email we sent throughout the planning process was replied to within one day. We could not have asked for a better wedding band experience. Your guests will thank you for booking ECS! "

"“WOW! This is the best wedding band!!!!” That’s what I heard all night from our guests! This band has soul, spirited passion, tremendous talent, professional communication, and thoughtful kindness! ECS was exceptionally amazing! My fiancé and I got engaged in late May with a wedding set in October, so we thought it might be a stretch when we found ECS online and read the marvelous reviews to actually get them as our wedding band. I emailed with our inquiry and legit 15 minutes later Sean had texted me reaching out and we were booking them 24 hours later. It felt like fate! As a part time wedding photographer and caterer, I can attest that this sort of quality and professionalism is rare in the wedding industry. The acclaim and praise you read is 100% legit. The energy and dance moves of James Brown with heart of Gladys Knight; they are full out aerobic like Tina Turner & her back-up singers! We had a list of songs we liked (some early, some later additions) and the band thoughtfully played them. They learned a song requested by my mother in law for the groom/mother of groom song. My father was over the moon to hear some of his all-time favorite hits and all of our Boston Red Sox fans belted out “Sweet Caroline” with the band. Pretty incredible when you have band members upping the energy on the dance floor too! We absolutely loved it! There wasn’t one song that we didn’t love and the band was the pulse of our wedding. Even though each member of the band makes it look easy, musical talent and range like this is no easy thing. Truly impressive talent from each musician and I would not hesitate to recommend them. On top of all that, the band found an old ring that was lost during the wedding from a groomsman’s pocket and thoughtfully made sure it got put somewhere safely and responsively communicated all of it. We appreciated all the reviews when we came across ECS and if there is one inkling of doubt on where to spend your money on the event, rest assured you will no "

"I've never heard so many guests at a wedding exclaim, "this is the best wedding band I've ever heard!" I've never seen my husband or his father - both self-proclaimed non-dancers - having so much fun. East Coast Soul did an amazing job selecting songs that kept our dance floor full right until it was time for guests to head home. They accepted song requests in real-time, nailed a really distinct cover for our first dance, did the ceremony music beautifully and brought an amazing energy to the event. They were composed and well prepared with announcements during the evening and were also incredibly organized throughout the entire planning process - the most organized of any vendor I worked with, sending automated forms to gather song preferences (in which they have a diverse offering), proactively scheduling calls with me to review the information, and being INCREDIBLY flexible with a very difficult venue (island with limited transportation and resources). Don't underestimate how valuable it is to have a vendor that's proactive about planning with you, in addition to great talent! Like my guests remarked, I felt East Coast Soul was the best wedding band I've heard. Don't hesitate to book them! "

"East Coast Soul made our wedding the absolute best night of our life. The dance floor was packed the entire night. When our photographer was leaving, she said she needed to get the band's information so she could recommend them to other brides. She does weddings every weekend and said "this is the best band I have ever heard." Not only did the music sound amazing, but the band genuinely looked like they were having a great time. They were smiling and engaging with our family and friends. This set the exact tone that we were hoping to accomplish, and everyone had an amazing time. Art was incredibly helpful in planning the evening, staying in touch with us often and getting all of the information necessary to create the exact atmosphere that we desired. For my husband and I, the most special moment was when the band sang our first dance song live - a Michael Jackson song that they arranged perfectly. THANK YOU, East Coast Soul, for giving us such a special evening. We cannot wait to recommend you to everyone we know, and we hope to see you at another wedding soon because it is sure to be the best time!"

"East Coast Soul was one of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding day. They had practically everyone on the dance floor including our so called “non-dancers” at the wedding. Their energy was unbelievable and we cannot recommend them highly enough. A special thank you to ECS who went out of their way to help us play a small video at our wedding as a way of remembering my husband's mom. "

"The bottom line on these guys - they are awesome! Every guest commented on how much they loved the band we chose. My boss literally said "this has to be the top wedding band I've ever heard". They got everyone dancing, totally jammed out (dancing, having fun on stage), and played the whole night through. Honestly, if you want your guests to love the music pick these guys - they sound amazing. From a bride/groom perspective ECS is also incredibly easy to work with. They are accomodating, flexible, and responsive. My mom is a huge Van Morrison fan, and they were kind enough to learn a song for our first dance. It meant a lot to my mom and I'll be eternally grateful they did that. I am going to keep rambling about how great they are if I continue. To prove how sincere this review is let me just say this. I got married last night, and I have a bunch of stuff to do before we leave on my honeymoon. Before I did any of that I wanted to sit down and write this review, because I feel passionately that ECS is the most amazing band ever."

"My fiance was not sure about the idea of getting a band for our wedding. She was content with a DJ and I really had to sell her on the idea that a band was the way to go. It was, her words not mine, "the best decision I have ever persuaded her to buy into". When I was trying to find the best band that fit our budget (as young, recent college graduates), East Coast Soul rose above the rest. The band was responsive to emails (typically the same-day I would send one), upfront about what they could provide, and open to negotiation once we discussed our wedding budget. The weeks leading up to the wedding, East Coast Soul worked with myself and my fiance to provide us with a customized wedding experience fit for our venue and our crowd. We filled out a survey to give the band a general idea of what we were looking for during the wedding, and the band connected with us and the venue shortly after filling out the survey to iron-out specific details on the night. East Coast Soul talked us through what the day of the wedding would look like, and were comfortable to make suggestions and recommendations (about both the day and the music selection) that would help prepare us for what was to come. By the time we arrived at Bittersweet Farm for the wedding, the band was already there setting up for the event. The music was AWESOME. I cannot tell you the number of people who came up to me during the night, and days after the event talking to me about how "this was the best wedding band they have ever heard". The crowd was ALIVE and even people who had to go home because of work the next day stayed until the very end. Everyone from younger relatives to our friends in their 20's to parents and grandparents were on the dance floor until the very end! Our wedding was truly something special, and I cannot think of any other band that would have fit our wedding better than East Coast Soul. It was truly everything that we could have asked for...and then some."

"When I first found East Coast Soul online, I knew that I would sacrifice anything else in my wedding budget to have them play at our wedding. When I heard them practice, I literally got chills. Amazingly, their price was totally reasonable. I can't say enough about this band. They are fun, soulful, and just all-around great musicians. They really are a band, not just a wedding band. People danced to every single song at our wedding, and obviously had a really good time. The singers are amazing, and get the crowd involved in a non-cheesy way. This band plays the greatest combo of pop hits and motown/soul classics. My mom actually told me she wished she could think of another excuse to hire East Coast Soul again because she loved them so much."

"The first few adjectives that come to mind... Incredible, Amazing, Superb... and the list goes on and on. Not only was East Coast Soul incredibly easy and professional to work with (easy website to navigate, open rehearsals to view their songs, customized playlists, etc), they provided over six hours of non-stop fun during our power-less wedding... yes, POWER-LESS wedding. My husband and I were married just over three weeks ago in Ipswich, MA. It happened to be the night of an epic summer thunderstorm - cue bride panic. Halfway through cocktail hour, a huge bolt of lightening struck the Estate where our reception was being held and knocked out all the power. Rather than panic, East Coast Soul assured me and my husband that they'd do everything they could to still make the evening a success - and they couldn't have pulled through any stronger! While waiting for the generator to arrive, the band quickly put band members on their horn instruments and grand piano so music could still be heard through the Estate. Although they had not planned to play these instruments during cocktail hour originally, they quickly adapted to the situation and had our guests dancing even before dinner was served. As soon as the generator arrived, they plugged right in and led our party through the most epic dance party. I've heard nothing but rave reviews from friends and family since our wedding. And I already have friends asking for their contact information for their own weddings. I couldn't be happier that my husband and I chose Sean and Aaron and the rest of the band from East Coast Soul. They provided amazing acoustics, awesome dance moves, and an all around seamless evening despite everything that was thrown at them. Not to mention, they are incredibly affordable! Thank you, East Coast Soul - you were the BEST!!"

"Oh man, these guys are incredible. I think every single one of our guests came up to me on the wedding night and said 'Who is this band??? They are amazing!!!!' They learned the Cat Power song 'Sea of Love' for us for our first dance and I swear it was magic when they played it. Even more beautiful than I could've imagined. And they're so FUN! The singers were all dancing while they were singing and they had smiles on their faces the whole time, everyone just loved them and never wanted to leave the dance floor. I also think they played the perfect array of music, they got everyone from grandparents, to aunts and uncles and ALL of our friends dancing at some point. They knew just how to work the room, everyone would get excited at whatever the next song was :) I worked with Sean in the whole booking and planning process and he was the easiest person to talk to and work with. He listened to all of my ideas and questions and worked out the perfect package for me. He made everything so easy! And he was so personable, really caring about what we were going for in our planning and getting to know us as a couple. I definitely felt like a client he really cared about. On the wedding day when I finally got to meet everyone (we planned long-distance) they were all so friendly and fun, it was like having more friends there, who happened to be the best band EVER! We gave them a few songs we really liked and our favorite bands from their repertoire and they came up with the most amazing sets. Right after the first dance they played 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered' and EVERYONE jumped onto the dance floor immediately - perfect. And for the last song they played Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing' and my husband said it felt like a movie, it started out slow with everyone dancing as couples, and ended up with the whole place in a circle around us screaming the lyrics. Couldn't have been better ending! Hire them - they will MAKE your party!"

"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."

"We just wanted to thank you for making our wedding day such a special occasion! East Coast Soul is fantastic, and you were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. You brought great energy to our wedding day, and we heard nothing but rave reviews throughout the day from our family and friends. It’s clear that you are passionate about what you do, and it showed in your performances throughout the day—from providing music for our ceremony to the performance you gave during the reception. You truly helped set the tone and mood for our memorable day and were a huge part of making the night a hassle- and stress-free success. The setlist was well thought out and kept everyone on the dance floor for the entire night; we also appreciate that you were mindful of our personal preferences, as well as those of guests of several generations. We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day so much fun!"
