Working with East Coast Entertainment was SO easy. We were extremely indecisive about what we wanted, but luckily Stacy was so helpful and pointed us in the right direction. We ended up going with Liquid Pleasure, which is a band that my parents grew up with, and they even... Read More played at my debutante ball years ago! I cannot say enough about them--they were incredible! From the choreographed dance moves, to dancing in the middle of the crowd, they kept everyone dancing all night! People are still talking about how amazing the band was. Thank you so much Stacy and East Coast Entertainment for all of your help!!

We used EastCoast Entertainment entertainers for our wedding ceremony as well as our wedding band for the reception and we were BEYOND happy with the both of them! Daniel McCarthy and Patrick Keese were fantastic during our wedding ceremony. They arrived on time, set up was... Read More easy and the live instrumental music was a beautiful addition to our ceremony. My husband and I selected very modern songs to be performed on the guitar and violin (i.e. - DMB, Jack Johnson) as well as more traditional wedding music and they were able to handle all genres perfectly. They gave recommendations as well such as I'm going to play a more delicate version of this particular song so it isn't so harsh during your ceremony. I would highly recommend both of them for wedding ceremonies or more!! Our wedding band was The Band Punch and they honestly made the second half of the wedding into the end of the night PERFECT. All of our guests at the time of our lives. Again no issue with the songs we selected. The last song/dance was phenomenal and our guests were talking about it well after that night. The only hiccup was during band breaks the team would have their iphone playing background music and when it was time for my father's speech, no band member could be found to turn off the iPhone. This delayed the speech a bit but by no means was a huge a deal. We highly recommend the band punch for anyone is looking for a high energy, dance all night type of wedding/event! Thank you to East Coast Entertainment!!!

EastCoast Entertainment's band "The Entertainers" is the BEST band to hire if you want to have the most fun at your reception and have everyone talking about how great it was for months after! Ed was prompt with his responses and always made my requests feel heard. Not only... Read More that, but the band read the crowd to make sure the music they were playing got people on the dance floor!

Thank you to Rad & Kell and EastCoast for being a part of our celebration on 10/22. The band was amazing. Every song choice and the performance behind it was incredible... my wife and I feel very fortunate to have had you there. Over the last year of planning, I cannot even... Read More count the number of times people told us to just go with a DJ... "it's safer," "they'll play exactly what you want," etc etc... but as music lovers, we knew that wasn't the right choice for us. I am so glad that we stuck to that position and that through a variety of circumstances we found our way to you. We've received a lot of compliments and credit for the great show and it all really belongs to you guys. So again, thank you. We'll remember last night for the rest of our lives and will never forget the huge part Rad & Kell played in making the night what it was.

Blue Label was our dream wedding band. Every person at our wedding commented on how amazing they thought the band was. They had to actually tell people to stop dancing and eat dinner during the dinner set. I screwed up and bought wrong the microphone cable for our rabbi to use... Read More for the ceremony, and they were so attentive and fixed the situation during the most stressful time of the wedding. I am a music snob, and these guys are the basically the best tribute band you've ever heard - and are also super nice people. Jeff was super cooperative and easy to work with, accommodating our alternative music preferences, making thoughtful recommendations beforehand, and then making song choices on the fly to keep people dancing. Don't get me wrong, they've got a ton of traditional wedding and pop songs in their repeteur. I'm sure they can play the typical wedding music if you want them to - but they were anything but cookie cutter for us. They were able to work in just the right amount of the traditional parent stuff like Motown and Frank Sinatra to keep the older folks happy too. It was a non-stop dance party and concert of a lifetime, going all the way from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's, and pop music - any musical style (they actually learned the two grateful dead songs and a phish song for us). I don't know what other band out there would think to call a Tiny Dancer into Santeria to get the entire floor packed. Their ability to cover songs true to the tone of all parts - synths, brass, guitar effects is outstanding, and so is all of their singing. About a month ago we had a good friend's wedding band ignore their "do not plays" and music direction, which would have made me furious. This is not what you will get from them. We were probably one of their most picky clients, but they will actually work with you and take your requests seriously (and we had some serious "do not plays", like Michael Jackson). Having all of our friends drunkenly dancing and screaming along to Toto Africa was one of the greatest moments of my life. My only regret was having friends who are smokers and such a nice outdoor area to hang out outside because some of them missed some outstanding stuff. Trust me, hire this band.

Seriously, so fun, very talented and super easy to work with during the planning process. They also did our instrumental ceremony music, learned our first dance song and then also learned a special song that I dedicated to my bride during the 2nd set. We left the entire set list up to them. They pulled from their huge catalog of songs and orchestrated a multiple set, song list that maintained the energy throughout the night and kept the dance floor packed. Even our grandmother was twirling and dancing her butt off. I rarely write reviews of products or services; however, I had to for the ROYAL SUITS to make sure everyone knows that they are the perfect choice for your next event. Hire the ROYAL SUITS for your next event but, ONLY if want to have the time of your life.
