the most INCREDIBLE band!!
East Side Stories band played our wedding two weeks ago at Chelsea Piers, and we are still not over how amazing they were -- our guests were blown away, we've received so many compliments on how great they were and continue to every time we talk to someone about the wedding. We had some special requests that were very important to us, and the East Side Stories band had no problem fulfilling all of our asks -- they took the time to learn all our special request songs, kept the dance floor full the whole night, and really brought the entire party to life. Besides being so musically talented, they were so NICE personally and had amazing stage presence. I wish we could do it all over again just to have them play again! They really brought our party to life, and I cannot recommend them highly enough!!Sent on 05/14/2019

Look no further...this is the BEST wedding band ever
Like many others here, I'm not sure that a written review can truly convey how great ESS really is.Sent on 01/28/2019
The sister band, NYC Storytellers, played my aunt's wedding a few years ago and our family still raves about how fun they were. When we got engaged, our minds immediately jumped to them. We were wary on the price since you can't pare down Storytellers from the full-piece band...but when we spoke to Sara and realized that ESS will customize from 6 piece and UP, we booked our date with them on the spot.
From a logistics standpoint, Sara was incredibly helpful, straightforward, and professional. She just kinda "gets it." It would be remiss of me not to mention how smooth she made this.
The band is absolutely killer. Seriously, I'm writing this nearly 4 months out from my wedding and still can't quite find the words to capture it. They happily obliged our "special" request songs and even surprised us with a few more we didn't even ask for. Dance floor was packed and the energy level was at 1000000 the ENTIRE time. They really made us feel special; definitely not just another a cookie cutter wedding band.
Everybody is still raving about what an epic party it was -- and I credit much of that to ESS. I've already started referring friends (and strangers lol) to them. Look no further...book them now!

We chose ESS to play at our wedding in June and they were absolutely amazing! Sara and Candace made the booking process stress-free, and were incredibly responsive to my emails. The band and management are super organized and know their way around a wedding- we felt like we were in great hands in the weeks approaching the wedding and on the day itself! They took time to talk through any questions we had and both my husband and I felt they listened to our preferences and choices regarding song list (while still offering their opinions from their extensive experience) The band was AMAZING and guests are still telling us how much fun they had and how much they loved the band! Our guests were dancing all night and we couldn’t have been happier!!! They also did an amazing job with songs for special dances!Sent on 07/23/2018
