Testimonials from The Contented Sole
"While I didn't share this with East Coast Soul, I do have a background with event and wedding planning. I have planned and worked on weddings/events for years, and of varying sizes, budgets, themes, and locations. Many brides think that food or the dress makes or breaks the wedding. In reality, it comes down to the music. You want to have music that makes people want to dance (obviously) but also feel like they belong. East Coast Soul BLEW my wedding out of the water! I have seen many wedding bands due to my past planning experience, and ECS were without a doubt the BEST. They completely understood the type of music we were looking for and did a great job curating the perfect playlist of both classic and contemporary music. Half of our wedding guests were from Sweden and they did a great job adding Swedish pop songs to their songlist (ABBA, Robyn). Their sound was tight and they flowed through songs in a smooth - not clunky - manner. One of our wedding guests is a music producer in Europe (Sweden) and stated that it was the single best wedding band he's ever seen. He also knows Robyn and said she would have loved and been very impressed by their rendition of 'Dancing on My Own.' When ECS (KING BAND - 9 pieces) was done performing, guests didn't want to leave because the band brought such wonderful energy. While I know guests won't remember the flowers, hors d'oeurves, or party favors, I know for a fact that they will remember the band as many said the band made the wedding the best wedding they've ever been to. If you're contemplating East Coast Soul, BOOK THEM. You will not only love them, but you will remember them for the rest of your life."

"The BEST - Hire them!
We cannot say enough about this East Coast Soul! We hired the King ensemble for our small, coastal Maine wedding and they TORE. IT. UP. They kept people on the dance floor all night and ended the evening with some truly epic sing-alongs. We keep getting rave reviews from our guests - "This isn't a regular wedding band - they're incredible," "This feels like going to a concert" and "I'd pay to see this band perform again" many, many times. Even the staff at the venue said they were the best wedding band they've ever seen. Not only were they amazing musicians and performers, they were also total professionals throughout the whole process. From our first meeting with Sean to the final breakdown at the end of the evening, the band was super responsive, easy to work with, and extremely flexible. They seamlessly transitioned from a jazz duo for cocktail hour to an instrumental group for dinner to a full funk/pop powerhouse for the dance party. They can honestly do it all. Do not hesitate - book this band!!"
