East Coast and Stacy Schnetzka, the Agent/Entertainment Consultant I worked with through my wedding planning process were a DREAM!
Starting with the very first phone call I had with Stacy after submitting a simply info request, she was amazingly engaged and continually aiming to please. Stacy and East Coast not only made a very difficult part of the wedding process simple, but they were honestly so invested in how our wedding turned out it was incredibly refreshing. Stacy went above and beyond to help us book the band of our wedding dreams. I would work with her and East Coast time and time again.
They were BY FAR my favorite vendor to work with throughout the whole process. I never expected such incredible service. I would recommend them and the band Love Tribe any day of the week! I never expected to make such a strong connection with any vendor throughout my wedding planning, but I honestly feel like a made a lifelong contact with Stacy and hope to work with her and East Coast again in the future. From the seamless coordinating, thorough communication, attention to detail and delivering on every promise, Stacy, East Coast and Love Tribe were all absolute professionals - can't recommend them all enough!
They single-handedly set the celebratory tone for our New Year's Eve wedding reception and can make any wedding day the best party you'll ever throw!
EastCost Entertainment made the wedding planning experience so easy! They were responsive, helpful, reasonably priced, and the band we hired, Dance Candy, was great!
This is the second time that we used East Coast Entertainment and the Class Act Band! We will be fans for life! Everyone is still talking about how much fun they had and the entertainment was 5 stars!!!
First of all Ray was a pleasure to work with, he listened to everything I wanted, played all the songs we sent him and really understood my vision.
Words can't explain how much I love Ray and the Kool Kats, their music was perfect. I received compliments from all my guest about the band. Their singer Mike (I think that is his name) sounds just like Frank Sinatra.
Overall I if I had to go back I would pick Ray and the Kool Kats every time. I was beyond pleased.
We had our rehearsal dinner at Antler Hill Barn on the Biltmore Estate and these guys were absolutely perfect for the setting! They played a wide range of cover songs with a bluegrass edge. Each musician was very talented and they were so nice to us, our family, and friends. We discussed a setlist with them prior to the event, but they were more than happy to take song requests if our guests had any. If we ever have another event in or nearby Asheville, we will definitely use this band again!
We worked with Stacy at East Coast, and she was on top of everything. All of our concerns & questions were immediately answered. We never had to worry about response time. Initially we were unhappy with our chosen band, but Stacy helped up through it. One thing I would mention is that when you go to a showcase and choose a band, make SURE that the selected members of that band are confirmed with the manager.
We loved loved loved our wedding band from East Coast Entertainment. MVP was the band for our special day, and you should not hesitate in hiring them. What a great band! Our guests never left the dance floor, and the band kept it up all night. We got so many compliments after the wedding about how great they were, even got the "Best band ever" compliment several times. Booking process was easy peasy, and the band leader made us feel so special. Go hire them now! :)
As a bride, the band was a top priority in the planning process. I was fortunate enough to attend another wedding where they had played and knew there couldn't be anyone better! When I booked them, all other stresses went out the window because the band, to me, is the most important part of the party. Simply Irresistible played for 3 hours and 15 minutes STRAIGHT. No breaks. All 300 of my guests were on the dance floor the entire time and could not stop talking about how amazing they were. Not only are they top singers AND performers, but they can read a crowd like no other band I have seen. They would cut a song short if the crowd wasn't feeling it and then just come in hot with the next. They are professional, extremely talented, and SOOO beyond nice. I loved every band member I spoke to. In my opinion, they are worth every penny because they MADE the party. Simply Irresistible is simply the best band out there.
Thank you so much to the band and to East Coast Entertainment for making all of this possible!!
My step-daughter's wedding was October 11, 2014 in Asheville, North Carolina. We booked Momentum Party Band through EastCoast Entertainment based upon a video. I was a bit nervous because I think music is the most important element of a wedding reception. They did not disappoint. Working with Theo before the wedding was a pleasure - he was happy to accommodate special requests and was very interested in making the reception what we wanted it to be. At the reception, the band was great! Everyone told me how much they loved them and several friends who are in the early stages of planning weddings, took their card. If I were planning another wedding, I'd book Momentum Party Band without hesitation!
My husband and I are serious about music, and having a great band was one of our top priorities in planning our wedding reception. We wanted a group of talented musicians that you would be thrilled to hear anywhere, with none of the cheesiness that often comes to mind when you think "wedding band." We checked out a lot of bands in the area and were having trouble finding one that fit the bill for us. And then we met Clint with East Coast Entertainment, who introduced us to Moonshine. We were blown away -- and so were our guests. I can't even count how many guests pulled us aside at the wedding to rave about the band and ask how we found them, because they were clearly in a whole other league than a "typical wedding band." Several guests even told us it was the best band they've ever heard at a wedding - and we agree! Their energy was amazing - the dance floor was packed all night, and they were masterful at reading the crowd for the set list. And knowing that my husband and I (and several of our guests) are swing dancers, they made sure to work in some great jazz standards for us to dance to. On top of their sheer talent, Jenny (the band leader) and Cliff from East Coast were both wonderful to work with -- incredibly responsive, professional and accommodating. They really knocked it out of the park, and we can't recommend them highly enough.
I got married September 2014. We went through East Coast Entertainment for our band. We ended up going with PUNCH out of Raleigh, NC. They were the BEST band i've ever heard at a wedding. Our guests all said the same thing. They absolutely MADE our reception. They had an amazing light show, it blew everyone away. I would def. recommend PUNCH and East Coast Entertainment to anyone.
When I say that The RUBBERBAND was completely AWESOME for my daughter's wedding, it is the understatement of the century!!!! They brought IT!!!! They Blew the roof off!!!!!! I feel like I can say this with some authority because I grew up in New Orleans and I didn't miss a Jazz Fest where I saw the Greats play. I had guest from 6 different countries and they were ALL on the dance floor ALL NIGHT!! Thank you guys!!!!!! You kept the guest ROCKING and made my daughter feel like a superstar!!!!!!! I can NEVER thank you enough it was the best night of my life!!!!!!!!!!

Working with Jay from Shimmer was one of the easiest aspects of the wedding planning process. He is so professional - always emailing you back the same day with information. Out guests commented over and over how great the band was. Shimmer set the pace for a fun filled, exciting wedding reception - the dance floor was packed until the last note played.
Thanks again to Shimmer and to East Coast Entertainment!
East Coast Entertainment was fantastic to work with. They assisted in booking Sol Fusion. I'm a huge music and dance lover so the band was a top priority. Sol Fusion is amazing -- their vocals, energy, song choices... everything! Everyone danced the night away and had an absolute blast thanks to Sol Fusion. We received tons of compliments during the reception and after about how fantastic the band was. Love, love love!
We appreciated the excellent service by East Coast Entertainment to arrange for the awesome Voltage Brothers to play at our daughter's wedding!
East Coast Entertainment sold us one band and then sent a completely different group of inferior musicians. I have never been so disappointed in my life.
We had Soul Play as the band for our wedding and they were phenomenal! They kept the dance floor full and energized!! We are so glad we had them at our wedding! They helped make it unforgettable!
Ellie Schwartz at East Coast Entertainment made the process of picking a band for our wedding and rehearsal dinner fun and easy. She sent me links to bands that she thought would fit well with what we were looking for and then we could decide from there. She was very responsive and extremely helpful. We ended up hiring two of the most amazing bands through East Coast Entertainment, 20 Ride and Bobby and the Aristocats. I would definitely recommend using East Coast to book your next band. They made me feel at ease and comfortable that everything would be perfect on my wedding day...and it was!
Brandon Crocker was awesome at our wedding. We were very pleased and many of our guests commented on how enjoyable his performance was. His communication before the event was helpful as well!
Coconut Groove Band was amazing! We loved their selections and they were a delight to work with! I only wish we could have heard more!
