    So helpful and accommodating in the process of postponing!

    My fiance and I had to make the difficult decision to postpone our wedding from August 1st 2020 to July 31st 2021 due to COVID-19. Riverside Lights and East Coast Entertainment was more than accommodating in making this switch. They were very prompt in their communication and allowed me to switch with no fee and no hassle. I highly recommend them to anyone and can't wait to hear them at my wedding in a year!

    Awesome Band!

    Riverside Lights was fantastic. From Ken’s acoustic guitar during the ceremony and cocktail hour to the full band during the reception, we were moving and grooving. So many guests afterward told us what a great band we had, and we couldn’t agree more. Ken and Riverside Lights had the barn floor bumping, and Ken did a great job MC’ing throughout. Our photographer kept saying she had never been to a wedding that was so on-time, and that was partially due to Ken.

    Search No More...Riverside Lights Rocks!!

    Everything about our experience with Riverside Lights was exceptional, and I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Ken worked closely with us to troubleshoot acoustic challenges at the venue and conducted thorough sound checks to ensure a stellar performance. He was responsive by email and text, always prompt and professional. The band even learned two new line dances to fit our country-western theme and honored every special request. I am a musician myself, and they hit every note perfectly and sounded even better on covers than some of the original performances. What really sets this band apart, however, is their awesome, unflagging energy on stage and their ability to respond to their audience. They are in sync and clearly have polished their performance style, showcasing musicians who both sing and play mulltiple instruments, gorgeous harmonies, a strong and dynamic female lead vocalist, and an impressively varied and appealing set list across a myriad of genres. You will not regret hiring this very talented group for your special event. Riverside Lights MADE our party!
