East Coast Music & Entertainment is a wedding and party band based in New York, NY. This lively and upbeat ensemble has been dazzling newlyweds and their guests for more than two decades. Featuring male and female vocalists, a vibrant horns section, and American Idol star Big Mike Lynche, this band will get all your guests dancing. East Coast Music & Entertainment was born in the late 1970s when founder Dan Vitalo, Jr. wanted to mix up the Long Island bar music scene. Sick of four-piece acts, he set out to start an eclectic big band that would feature more variety in vocalists, styles, and instruments. East Coast has since graced numerous weddings and events throughout the state, including marrying Mr. & Mrs. New York City in the 1990s. Over the years, their members have written chart-topping songs, performed on Broadway, and collaborated with many of the industry’s best. The company’s flagship ensemble, East Coast, is a 6- to 10-piece band that specializes in keeping the party going. However, the team can also provide musicians who will deliver more tranquil sounds for the ceremony and cocktail hour. For your reception, they play classic hits and contemporary favorites in a diverse range of genres, including rock, pop, Motown, reggae, swing, jazz, and more. With an extensive repertoire, this group will make all your wedding entertainment dreams come true.
