The best of the best!
Our very large wedding was originally scheduled for May of 2020, but due to COVID-19 our plans had to change. When we reached out to East Coast about our new plans they were incredibly accommodating and worked with us on the date options we had with our venue to figure out which date would work best to get the same configuration we had originally settled on. After all of that replanning- we changed out plans AGAIN once we realized a 275 person wedding wasn't going to happen in November of 2020. So, with our third plan in place,- a much smaller, 45 person celebration- and with only 1 month notice we went back to Paul who was eager and excited to work with us on figuring out a new set up for the much smaller event.
Our crowd was particularly cautious given the pandemic, and our venue did not allow dancing- so we worked with Paul to figure out what would work for our long dinner party.
Fast forward to the day of the wedding and man did they deliver! Who knew a dinner party could be so much fun-- they absolutely NAILED our first dance song, took requests from the crowd and even let my husband's father play the guitar with them for a number of songs. They were great at keeping the crowd engaged, even at an unconventional wedding, and EVERYONE commented on how great they were. People were Impressed and had a great time, and we couldn't be more grateful and happy that we chose
East Coast Band to work with for our wedding. If you're looking for an awesome band who can adapt to any situation, are easy to work with, who very much LOVE what they do, are down to earth, and fun to be around--- seriously look no further
