We attended a wedding years before our own where East Coast Band was the entertainment and we just couldn't get them out of our heads. So when it came time to plan our own wedding it was a no-brainer to book them. Hiring East Coast Band was 100% our best (and easiest) decision. Paul and his team are truly amazing and really made the whole process a breeze. Music sets the tone of the entire event and without East Coast, it just wouldn't have been the same. They worked with us to include all our special songs throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception without a hitch. Our guests still have not stopped raving about how much fun they had and how amazing the band was. I work in the music industry and even my boss in attendance was in awe of how great of a show they put on. The band played to the crowd and got everyone out of their seats ALL night. If you want a night your guests will never forget, look no further! They are the real deal people!!! Thank you, Paul and East Coast Band for making our day everything we ever dreamed of!Sent on 05/23/2018

Gordon Dukes' band was the BEST!!!!
Gordon Dukes and his band were totally and completely INCREDIBLE!!!! They brought such amazing music, sound, positivity, exuberance, and joy to our wedding!!! The band really MADE the wedding!!! We still cannot get over how exceptional the band was!!! And we’re not the only ones -- our families and guests keep telling us (and they told us that day too) how insanely amazing the band was!! No one can believe it. People told us that they had the quality, sound, and performance of 18 bands combined. SEVERAL people told us that this was the best wedding band they had ever seen or heard -- and we totally agree!!! The dance floor was PACKED the entire night, and that was thanks to Gordon, the whole band, and their amazing talent. And on top of all of that, we had a very unique venue (ceremony on a mountaintop and potentially changing timelines and complicated backup rain plan for the ceremony/reception which impacted the change-over) and Gordon was so flexible and made it work seamlessly. Gordon was also such a pleasure to work with. We really cannot thank him enough or think of a better person to work with. Any time we had a question, he answered it promptly and thoroughly and often called us to discuss -- which was so helpful because he kept us calm and happy throughout the process, especially during times when I was nervous or stressed. We are so grateful for that. Gordon performed so well and his entire band was incredible! They really “read” the crowd and played the perfect arrangement -- song after song was ideal and kept the party going!!! They really live up to their name: The BEST Wedding Band -- ever!!! We really cannot recommend them enough!!!Sent on 09/18/2019

This band is phenomenal and our wedding guests are STILL talking about them! The group is so impressive in person and honestly their website does not do them justice. We included Big Mike as one of our performers and could not have been happier with that choice, he is OUTSTANDING ! We also added strings and a jazz trio for ceremony and cocktail, so so happy with that decision. You can not go wrong with this group, the experience level and quality is so good! Just remember your guests always remember the quality of music and this band is hands down worth the price (which was complete fair!) They killed it!Sent on 08/31/2019
Free cocktail hour music included with our already disocunt Jan -April posted pricing.
