Amazing Company posted 6/30/2014 (modified 7/6/2014)

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!

I contact several entertainment companies while searching for the band for my wedding. East Coast Entertainment provided me the best choices for my money. I live in MO and was planning a wedding in VA which made it impossible to so and see them beforehand. I had to rely on them on recommendations in addition to viewing videos online.

We got lucky and was able to book TradeMark. Even my photgrapher told me how lucky we were to get them and how aweseome they were. I couldn't agree more. They were professional, dressed perfectly to match my colors and rocked the house. They kept the dance floor packed and did a couple of special interactive things that kept the crowd engaged. We had so many compliments afterwards on how wonderful the band was and a couple of guests even got their card to use for themselves.

Thanks for a memorable evening!

We hired our band through EastCoast Entertainment and were not disappointed with our choice. They made everything from selecting the band to signing the contracts to music selection a breeze. Our wedding was in Charleston and included guests from Maine to Florida to Texas - the Boomers, our band, were amazing and picked songs that everyone enjoyed. Our dance floor was packed the whole night! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would highly recommend EastCoast Entertainment and the Boomers!

Wedding: 9/14/2013

I knew that I wanted our reception to be black tie but still a great party that everyone would remember. My fiance and I both agreed that the live music was the most important piece to making this come true.

We honestly spoke with three different agencies in the DC area before speaking with EastCoast. Everyone else seemed too eager to discuss how big our budget was before even discussing what it was that we really wanted. Yuck.

I'm so happy that I called EastCoast. Jenny was the agent who helped me, and she was so sweet and helpful. She really wanted to make sure that we had the perfect band for US, and even spoke with the venue regarding the room size and performance space to make sure we didn't go overboard with the band size. (I would have never thought about that.)

Their website is huge and had the most interesting, amazing bands we saw during our whole entertainment search. She really listened to us and helped us narrow down the options.

We booked the Midnight Movers and could not have been more pleased! It was incredible to have an amazing band performing, but we never dreamed we would have a celebrity group at our wedding. In the end, Jenny helped make our reception the party of the year. Thank you!

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!

Excellent service! posted 6/11/2014

I can't say enough good things about EastCoast Entertainment. We decided we wanted to hire a certain band and the EastCoast agent answered my email within a few hours ON A SUNDAY!!!! Our question was "is this band available on the date we needed them?" and we needed that answer ASAP. I was so appreciative of the prompt response. That timely and thorough service continued throughout our relationship. I would contact EastCoast Entertainment for any future needs and would recommend them to my friends. Good job, EastCoast! and Ellie (the agent)!

Loved our Band! posted 6/4/2014

I used EastCoast to hire Continental Divide - they were amazing!
We worked with Miranda and she suggested CD to fit our retro wedding theme, they were so good. Even on the warmest day we'd had all year (mid-high 80s) they were going all out. We had so much fun, and received so many compliments from the guests (who were a little disappointed to hear the band only played regionally). They kept the party going, and without the cheesiest of wedding dances. They were on top of taking cues from us and the crowd, used our suggestions for break music, and really knew what they were doing. True professionals. I'm so glad we used EastCoast, and look forward to getting to use them again in the future!

EastCoast Entertainment & MVP Band posted 5/31/2014 (modified 6/1/2014)

We picked MVP band after going through a long list of bands that EastCoast Entertainment provides. From start to finish EastCoast were incredibly helpful and made the process painless. As for the band, they blew everyone away! Even people I know that don't usually dance were out there on the dance floor havin the time of their lives. I wholeheartedly recommend both EastCoast Entertainment and MVP band for any events you're having.

Trademark was AMAZING! posted 4/29/2014 (modified 4/30/2014)

I used Trademark from East Coast Entertainment as my wedding band. They were SO amazing and worth every penny. They had all the guests dancing the whole night and even managed to get my shy groom up on stage. So many people came up to me during the wedding asking about the band and several people called in the weeks after the wedding to compliment the band. Some even said in their whole lives they had not experienced a wedding band so fantastic. They were absolutely wonderful and I cannot imagine my wedding without them. They were truly unbelievable.

Swingin' Richards posted 4/28/2014 (modified 4/29/2014)

I am so happy with my band selection. The Swingin' Richards went above and beyond to make everything perfect. They even learned specific songs that I wanted played at the wedding (father/daughter dance, first dance, etc..). Ken is a great contact and was beyond helpful. Dustin (guitar player) also was wonderful! He played my ceremony music and my first dance on an acoustic guitar. They are AWESOME and I highly recommend them to anyone!

3/29/14 Seabrook Island wedding- Sol Fusion posted 4/18/2014 (modified 4/19/2014)

Sol Fusion is hands down the best band around! I cannot even begin to put into words how incredible they are, but I will try my best. We looked into several bands for our wedding as the music was very important to us and ultimately chose Sol Fusion based on their exquisite talent, song list, recommendations etc. We knew they were going to be amazing, but their performance at our wedding blew us (and all of our guests) away!! From their talent, ability to engage the crowd, energy and overall performance, they are truly one of a kind and I can honestly say my day would not have been as perfect as it was without them. We danced all night, as did our grandparents, parents, their friends, our friends....they literally performed for four hours straight and kept everyone on the dance floor. There was never a dull moment! We have received so many phone calls since the wedding asking for the name of our band and where they are from. Every single person has raved about Sol Fusion and their performance. If you are looking for a band that will get and keep EVERYONE dancing and engaged all night and have your guests raving about your reception/event, they are the band for you. I would not hesitate for even a second to book Sol Fusion for your wedding, special event etc. You will be lucky to have them and I can guarantee they will exceed your expectations!!

This was just an awesome company to work with- very friendly and efficient. When the band I though we wanted was booked, they directed me to another one of their bands that was a perfect fit!! Everything went smoothly, the band was set up on time and barely took any breaks! Our dance floor was packed all night!!

JAVA - EastCoast Entertainment posted 3/11/2014 (modified 3/12/2014)

JAVA was absolutely the perfect fit for our wedding! We had over 220+ people in attendance and we constantly received comments on how wonderful they did! They kept everyone on their feet and the energy was simply fantastic. Thank you for making our wedding so special, so memorable, and somehow a night of cardio, because I was sore the next day from dancing so much! I’d recommend Java to anyone else out there. I can’t wait to see the video!

Thank you Hot Sauce Party Band for helping make our wedding reception truly perfect! We've had so many guests tell us how awesome you guys were! Your energy, enthusiasm, and the way you worked the room to make everyone feel included had us all dancing and singing along to a perfect mix of songs. We knew we were in great hands in preparation for our wedding as you listened to what we wanted and double checked that you understood our requests fully, gave great feedback on our ideas, and went above and beyond to incorporate personal touches just for our day. Everyone had an amazing time! Thank you for helping make our reception such great fun! We hope to have an opportunity to work with you again!

EastCoast Entertainment- Sweetwater Junction Band posted 1/26/2014 (modified 1/27/2014)

I went through EastCoast Entertainment to book the band Sweetwater Junction... the band was absolutely AMAZING. We did not want typical "Big Band" music but wanted a heavier focus on Southern Rock, etc. At my wedding I literally had about 40 people come up to me asking for the bands information because they thought they were so good. As far as the booking process goes, Kevin was the booking manager, and I had a hard time getting in touch with him a few times which is why they got a 3/5 stars for service. The band, however, was extremely professional, responsive and delivered a performance of exceptional quality. All in all, I would definitely recommend due to the quality of the band and the price. Service could be stepped up a bit by booking manager to communicate more efficiently with clients, specifically regarding replies to email and phone calls.

Best agent/band/experience in the country. posted 1/21/2014 (modified 1/22/2014)

I cannot say enough wonderful things about East Coast Entertainment and our booking process for Ascension, our wedding band. Our agent, Terry Evans, helped us with every step of the booking process, from choosing a band within our budget to finalizing details with Ascension for our big day. He was always within reach via phone or e-mail and so quick to answer all of my questions! Ascension was THE best wedding band we've ever seen...by far the favorite part of our day, besides saying our vows! They were professional and flexible when a downpour caused us to move our wedding indoors! My husband and I danced for HOURS. We were some of the last people to leave our reception...we stayed until the last song to celebrate with all of our loved ones. Ascension has high energy, endless talent, and can work a crowd! I want all of my friends to book them, just so we can celebrate with them again! They were exactly what we wanted, and MORE!

Brent Payne posted 12/5/2013 (modified 12/6/2013)

I am writing to let wedding planners know that on my birthday party in November we used East Coast Entertainment to help us select a band. I worked with Mark Owens out of the D.C. office and he was so great with helping me to pick a band for the party and was always available to answer any questions I had. The band he helped me select was TFC out of Va. Beach, Va. and the were fantastic. Everyone at my party talked about how they were the best band they had heard in years and I was still getting compliments after the party. The band were like friends by the time the evening was over. They were easy to work with and got the crowd involved. I would highly recommend TFC from Va. Beach for your wedding or any other event being planned and also East Coast Entertainment.

I have to say that working with East Coast Entertainment and The Voltage Brothers was easy, smooth and a great experience for us! The Voltage Brothers are not only professional, but kind and extremely talented! They were the perfect choice for my daughter and son-in-law! They had the time of their lives and danced the night away with this awesome band! So many asked where I found them and I was happy to respond. We could not have asked for a more perfect band! The horns, the voices, the energy and crowd involvement were incredible! Thanks so much to East Coast and the Voltage Bros. My daughter did not want the night to end::)
