Wedding: 10/27/2012

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!

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!

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.

Couldn’t have been more pleased with our band selection, Loose Chain! They had everyone on the dance floor all night from young to old. They opened the evening playing more traditional wedding songs and then pick up the tempo has the night moved along. Loose Chain was great with the crowd and got everyone involved. I have had several bride’s to be who attended our wedding contact me asking for info on Loose Chain. You will not be disappointed. The band contacted me a couple of weeks before the wedding and we went over songs we would like to hear which were all played. Mostly I worked with their agent Kevin Greene, who was awesome as well. He organized everything and if I had a question he would email me back almost immediately. The entire outfit was professional as it gets. As stated previously we couldn’t have been more pleased!!

Thanks to Loose Chain and Kevin!!

Ever since I was younger, anytime we went to a event with a band and my dad hear a group he liked he always got their card. When it came time to find a band for the reception my dad went to review the cards. One company name kept coming up, EastCoast Entertainment. After contacting EastCoast Entertainment we all knew this was the company we wanted to use. After hearing what tiype of music and band we wanted, they sent us a long list of highly rated bands to use from the large variety they represent. . We chose to go with band MVP through EastCoast Entertainment and we are thrilled with the choice. I can not say enough good things about MVP!!!!!For our first song we requested a song not on their playlist. We said a cd would be fine, but they took the time to learn our favorite song. Not only are they great to work with but they are all so talented. Every song they performed was spectacular! They made sure to get the crowd excited and dancing. We had a wide variety of musical genres we wanted and they played them all! If you are looking for a talented band who will give you an unforgettable experience at your reception, this should be a no brainer. This Carolina Bride could not be happier with our choice to work with EastCoast Entertainment and the band MVP!!!!!!

Sol Fusion Band posted 8/5/2013

First, a bold statement: Sol Fusion is the best party band in North Carolina, if not the entire Southeastern United States, if not the world.

This band can flat out jam. You could put them in a room full of centenarian Baptists, each with two left feet, and in less than five minutes, every single pair of feet would be out there flailing on the dance floor. Their energy is simply contagious. With a bevy of instrumentalists, three female vocalists, and one truly outstanding male vocalist named TK, whose party shades are nearly as radical as his voice, they have the versatility to perform just about anything. And whatever they perform, they perform it well.

We hired the band to play at our wedding reception in July, and never in my life have I seen such a high percentage of party guests dancing at the same time. No exaggeration: it seemed as if everyone present was on the dance floor the WHOLE. TIME. It didn't matter if they were eight years old or eighty! From what I could gather, the only reason people sat down was to get a drink and recover from all the dancing they had done. Every single guest I've talked to since has told me that Sol Fusion was the best wedding band they've ever heard. One of my friends told me that he attended another wedding the week after ours. "The reception was great," he said. "But the whole time I was just thinking about how much better your band was." My dad, who danced like a maniac the whole night, later told me that he hadn't danced like that since the early 80's. Afterwards, he had to turn down several hugs because he was drenched in sweat from head to toe.

I can't praise this band enough for what they brought to our reception. Not only was their performance flawless (did I mention that their transitions were seamless, and that they played for over two hours without taking a break?), but they were also extremely accommodating, taking our song requests and even learning a few new numbers just for us. Their agent, Chris, was readily available and a tremendous help throughout the whole process, and before I go on any longer, I'll end my review by saying that I would wholeheartedly recommend this band to anyone for any event, any time. Thanks, Sol Fusion!

Great to Work with posted 7/21/2013

This was a recommended vendor from our wedding site, so we checked out the website and were so impressed by the selection of bands. We found the perfect fit with Sweetwater Junction, that was able to fit our budget as well as adapt to our love of country music. Everyone at Eastcoast was easy to work with and very professional. I highly recommend it!

FANTASTIC BAND! posted 7/16/2013

We hired Black and Blue (through East Coast Entertainment) for our wedding on 6/29 and they were truly incredible. Bobby Hall, the band manager, was amazing right from the start. He was so collaborative and responsive which made us super confident going into the day. They were amazing and exceeded all of our expectations. The band did a great job of reading the crowd and making sure that everyone was on the dance floor having a blast. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone getting married. They are awesome!

DJ for our wedding posted 7/8/2013

My husband and I got married just a few weeks ago and used East Coast Entertainment to book a DJ for our reception. They were so easy to work with and helped answer questions I had. They gave recommendations and responded immediately whenever I emailed. Absolutely no stress in this part of the wedding planning process.

We hired DJ Geometrix and he was beyond fabulous! We had a pretty random assortment of music we wanted to play at our reception and he knocked it out of the park. He was so great to talk with and planning things out with him took no time at all. He was flexible, took song requests, and the guests at our wedding danced all night long. He knew exactly what to do to make sure everyone had an amazing time.

Our wedding band was amazing. They were so fun, and learned all the crazy songs we requested. Their hora was the BEST I've ever experienced. Had everyone up dancing and laughing. They worked with me, and were very good at communicating, and were just awesome.

Great Customer Service! posted 12/18/2012

Within 10 minutes of explaining the wide variety of music we wanted to be played at our reception, EastCoast Entertainment named about 6 bands within my budget! When I received their email within the next 30 minutes, it was ever so hard to pick only 1 band to play! We went to Hot Sauce and so thankful I went thru a booking agent. At first I was uncomfortable with the idea, but the band they recommended made people dance that disagreed in our taste of music! I am not kidding when I say Everyone!

Absolutely amazing! posted 11/21/2012

I hired the Great Expectations band for my wedding through EastCoast Entertainment and could not be happier that I did! They were absolutely AMAZING and kept the party going and everyone on the dance floor all night. The band learned a new song for our first dance, and the singer did an amazing rendition of "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson that made everyone go crazy. My guests could not stop talking about how spectacular the band was, and I am so grateful that I made the decision to book Great Expectations. I should also mention that it was very easy working with John from EastCoast Entertainment in order to get everything arranged ahead of the big day. All in all I could not be more pleased with the wonderful job they did!!!!

Great help in Charleston Area posted 11/20/2012

Scott Toole at EastCoast Entertainment was wonderful to work with for our wedding entertainment, and I know that I was not an easy customer. My husband and I could not quite agree on what band we wanted for our wedding. We knew this was an important decision since this can make or break the reception party. After months of going back and forth, working to fit our budget, and listening to bands in person, we decided on the band Hot Sauce with Scott's recommendation and being the only band we did not listen to in person. I was slightly stressed out about not being able to go see the band beforehand, but I took Scott's advice. Before the wedding Phillip from Hot Sauce called and we talked about music and our wedding plan. I was so glad that he called in advance, and I knew we were in good hands. When the band started playing, I was so relieved because they were AWESOME! They had everyone dancing for 4 hours straight. It was amazing because all age groups were dancing, my grandmother said that the next day every bone in her body hurt because she danced so much! The band created the best party atmosphere and mixed in some slow songs too. They learned our first dance song, and played until the very end with such great intensity. They were not only great to work with, but they were an awesome band that I received so many compliments on them after the wedding. BOOK HOT SAUCE though EastCoast Entertainment and you will not be sorry. They were worth every penny!.

I got lucky on this one. My guitar instructor is married to a woman who works here. It didn't mean any discounts, but she was such a pleasure to work with! Jenny Langer asked great questions, listened to all of our preferences and made amazing suggestions that led to one of our favorite parts of our wedding, Curbside Manner! Everyone raved about the band and still talk about them, even a month after.

I highly recommend working with this company, and especially asking for Jenny! She'll definitely help you to find the music you're looking for!

Great band agents posted 8/24/2012

East Coast Entertainment was extremely helpful in targeting which band to get for our July wedding in North Carolina. Based on our venue, number of guests, and preferred music style, they matched us with the band they thought would match our interests best, which ended up being Men of Distinction. They were incredible, and were such an absolute hit at our wedding. They had people dancing all night, and even doing the "Can-Can" at one point- very entertaining group. I appreciate East Coast's efforts to match us with the perfect band for our wedding.
