This band was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! We booked the East Coast Band for our wedding without ever having heard them ... we got the recommendation from a friend who has been to many many Long Island weddings ... he said that by FAR, the East Coast Band was the best. This friend is a... Read More very fun guy ... so we trusted him! And we are SO HAPPY that we did!!!! The dance floor was packed ALL NIGHT. These guys are professionals, can read the crowd, engage the guests, keep the party going - oh my goodness. I just cant say it enough! Paul was great to work with - very accommodating, honest, and truly wants you (the bride) to have the best experience. He gave us many recommendations about the flow of the night, the timeline, the songlist, the pieces that would make our playlist sound the best, etc. etc. Big Mike!!! Just cant say enough about him! I kept telling the band "I just want a good party!!!" ... that's what they gave us! When we talk to wedding guests, they always start with "... that band!!!" It was worth every single penny!!!

East Coast Band is the best band EVER, hands down! They nailed it! I knew as soon as my fiancé and I got engaged that they were the band for us. They played my sister’s wedding and another friend’s wedding and their incredible energy is what sold me right away. Our wedding... Read More night was AMAZING! East Coast had everyone out on the dance floor singing along to the music. I don’t think they ever took a break! Everyone in the group is incredibly talented. We chose Eartley and Lauren as our lead vocalists and then added a 3rd, Kenny Showtime, after seeing him at O’Flanagan’s. We could not have been happier with our team! They are a class act all the way and clearly experts when it comes to getting guests on their feet! Paul, the bandleader, is so easy to work with. He was super helpful and able to answer any and all questions we had throughout the planning process. While I worked with him on the flow of the wedding reception events (first dance, cake cutting, parent dances, etc.), I let East Coast have total control over the song choice and they did not disappoint! My fiancé, being a lover of Hip Hop and R&B, thought a DJ was the way to go. He always thought that a band wouldn’t have a great range of music...boy was he wrong! East Coast rocked everything! Two months after our wedding, people are still telling us how great our wedding was, and at the top of their list is our band!

You will have no regrets booking East Coast for your event! We were lucky enough to have Eartley, Lauren and Fred as our singers, plus 6 additional musicians for our wedding. You can truly tell that they enjoy working together and genuinely enjoy throwing you an amazing party!... Read More My husband loves music and cared a lot about having a quality band- and we could not have been happier. Eartley sang The Bee Gees, "To Love Somebody" as our first dance song and his voice couldn't have been more perfect. We booked with Paul and he graciously dealt with all of our requests. We also trusted this band- they can feel the energy of a party and know exactly what song to play next. In addition, we really wanted a wide variety of songs for all age guests to enjoy, and they 100% delivered. Don't hesitate to leave your deposit and book your date, they'll take great care of you!

East Coast is the best. Plain and simple. They were our favorite vendor to work with by far. We saw them at several bars throughout New York City and Long Island (even after we booked) because it's a great time with East Coast. At each show, they always recognized us, and went... Read More out of their way to answer any questions we had or take requests. For our first dance, they played a duet that wasn't in their normal repertoire, but they killed it! The entire night was amazing - from their performances at the ceremony and cocktail hour to the 5-hour reception. The energy and passion came through each song they played. Melissa, Lauren, Eartley, Freddy, Tommy and Stevie B all have incredible voices. John and Paul were great to work with on the contract as well. You can't go wrong with East Coast! People still talk about them whenever they mention our wedding - even 5 months later. Several guests inquired about having them play out of state (which they will do!) since they were so much fun.

First let me say that I am always a skeptic when it comes to reading reviews on the internet, but I must say my review is completely honest and I couldn't be more excited to give East Coast 5 stars! To me the band is one of the most important elements of a wedding reception. We... Read More saw East Coast perform in Manhattan and were blown away and immediately booked them for our daughter's wedding. Paul is a real pro and a was a pleasure to work with. He'd always respond quickly and honestly via email to any questions or concerns we had during the planning process. Shortly before the wedding the staff was in close contact with us to go over all last minute details. They even learned a new song for my daughter and son-in-law's first dance. Not only was the planning part a breeze with Paul, but the actual performance the day of the wedding was above and beyond what we ever imagined. Mike, Eartley and Lauren have phenomenal voices and great personalities as well. I've been to many weddings and have to say this was by far the best band we've ever heard. Immediately after the cocktail hour ended, and guests were escorted into the ball room, the dance floor was jam packed for the rest of the night. The wait staff had to go to the dance floor to get the guests' dinner orders! It was a full four hours of non stop dancing, other than the short break for toasts and cutting the cake. Many people commented that they had never seen so many people dancing non stop for the entire evening. While we requested some songs, Paul told us they base their song selection on the mood of the crowd and WOW did they do a great job. Even the mid 80 year olds were out dancing. It was awesome how the singers had cordless microphones and came out on the dance floor to allow some guests to sing along. One very special moment was the performance of the of the National Anthem by Lauren. She did a phenomenal job and the crowd was cheering evening before she was done! Thank you to Paul and the entire East Coast band for your talent and making our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception spectacular.
