    East Coast Entertainment

    I have booked twice in the past 2 years with East Coast and have been very satisfied.
    Reid Farber was a pleasure to work with and always answered my calls. The contracts were easy to read and understand. He was very willing to recommend bands in my price range. It was a pleasure booking with East Coast Entertainment.

    Fantastic All-Around

    We had a fantastic experience with ECE, and our guests are still raving about the band. ECE & 'I Love This Band' are a top-notch team all-around!

    Royal Suits & Ellie Schwarz

    We booked the Royal Suits for our wedding this Spring and unexpectedly had to cancel our wedding due to COVID-19. Ellie and the entire band handled this so quickly and professionally we were amazed. After working with several vendors in this situation, I can say this has not been the case for all. In the event we re-schedule without a doubt we would work with them. Not only are they incredibly talented but a joy to do business with. We are bummed we can not have them on our wedding day but book them knowing you are getting an awesome team!

Though we weren't able to help you rebook, we appreciate your review and hope nothing but the best for your upcoming wedding. Stay safe, Ellie and ECE

    Exceptional Experience!

    East Coast Entertainment is the booking agent to use for your event entertainment. Our daughter's wedding was moved from an earlier date to March 13th due to COVID. ECE was very accommodating and moving the booking was absolutely no problem. They were easy to deal with in every respect. I would highly recommend East Coast Entertainment for any musical entertainment needs.

    Diverse Groove Band - The BEST Wedding Band!

    We booked Diverse Groove Band through ECE, and they completely blew us away. Up until the last minute I was skeptical that any band could get ~30 people to dance enthusiastically for more than a few minutes, but they did it! The sound quality and energy that the band brought to the room was amazing. Diverse Groove Band made our reception; since the event our guests have continued to rave about how much fun they had because of the music. We would 10/10 recommend Diverse Groove to our friends.

    I have used the services of East Coast Entertainment, with the help of Ellie Schwarz, for YEARS in our Asheville, NC venues! They always deliver a quality band for any budget.

    Exceptional rseponse in the midst of COVID-19

    The team at East Coast Entertainment was extraordinary in the midst of COVID-19 for cancelling, postponing to an August 2020 date, and ultimately finalizing a date in May 2021 for our daughter's wedding. We had already had an incredible experience with ECE for our older daughter's wedding in February 2019 in Nashville. There was no hesitation to work with us and our wedding planner to review their schedules and ours to successfully accommodate the move to May 2021. Our family endorses ECE to the nth degree.

We appreciate your review and looking forward to celebrating with you and your family again in May. Stay safe, ECE

    Diamond River Band

    We used ECE to help us hire a band for our wedding. Ellie was so helpful in finding bands in our budget and that fit our style. We hired the Diamond River Band who were local to Asheville, and they were absolutely amazing and complete professionals. Dave, the band leader, went above and beyond setting up mics for our ceremony and called me personally to discuss mic options because he wasn’t satisfied with the sound they were producing for our officiant during soundcheck. They could not have been more kind or caring, and our guests danced the night away to such amazing music!

    Great all the way around!

    Wonderful experience from the start. Ellie was very responsive, knew exactly what I was looking for, and was a reliable resource the I had any questions, no matter how specific they were. We hired a band through ECE for our New Year's Eve wedding, and it was the best decision we made! The band was wonderful and a highlight for ourselves and our guests.

    Great evening with Springer-Cagle Quartet

    Reid,
    We couldn’t have been happier with Springer-Cagle! They were perfect.
    Greg did a great job of preparing prior to the wedding day. He provided the ceremony music on acoustic guitar, and Robyn joined in to sing “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” for the recessional.
    The Cocktail music was perfect, and they transitioned smoothly into first dances. From that point on, they did a great job of reading the crowd, and the dance floor was crowded at the end of the night.
    They were the perfect choice for Kate and Jackson’s wedding. Thanks for your help!

    Amazing from the very first note!

    We hired The Royal Suits through East Coast Entertainment for our Asheville, NC, wedding in June, and it was hands down the best wedding decision we made. The Royal Suits were amazing from the very first note, and kept the party going all night long. In fact, I hope that I have the pleasure to attend a wedding where they play when I'm not the bride so I can enjoy every second of their performance! We went over our intended budget in order to hire the Royal Suits, but they were worth every single penny. Many of our guests told us it was the most fun they had at a wedding, and it was absolutely because of the Royal Suits. Do yourself a favor and hire them if you're getting married or having an event in the Asheville, NC area!

    Ellie with ECE in AVL

    Ellie in the Asheville office was great to work with during our process. She helped us select a band that fit our wedding size and our musical tastes. Then when COVID delayed our wedding she made sure it was a smooth task of rescheduling. She was always upbeat and excited for us whenever we spoke which made us feel that much more excited too. And that excitement was not undue.

    I have to get a little blurb in here about the band as well. Hot Sauce was amazing and were an absolute hit at the reception. They kept us dancing the entire night and made sure to keep the energy up. They made coordinating song selections for our special dances a breeze.

    Absolutely Perfect!!!

    I am in love with this group from start to finish. They seriously killed it at our wedding this past weekend. Their instrumentalists and vocalists are on another level. The night ended with all our guests on the dance floor, and literally everyone was talking about how incredible this group was. I'm sure I'll be hearing about it for weeks and months to come!

    They provided perfect dinner music with their instrumentalists. We requested that they specially learn to play our first dance ("Bones" by Maren Morris) with an acoustic male voice and guitarist. I am here to say that their version of that song rivals the original for me. It was spectacular and a truly incredible few minutes for my husband and I, for which I am immensely grateful. From there, the reception music was high energy and had every generation out on the dance floor instantaneously.

    Without question, this group is in a league of its own. Thank you for playing a huge part in making our wedding day the best day of our lives!

    Five Stars for ECE and the Maxx!

    East Coast Entertainment is great to work with and makes your experience so easy! We worked with Reid Farber to book the MAXX and had a wonderful experience pre wedding and a blast at our wedding. The Maxx was the perfect band for our wedding and had the crowd dancing from start to finish. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a band that will interact with the crowd and keep the party going till the end of the night!

    Blaze The City band from East Coast Entertainment

    Blaze the City is a group of super talented, friendly, professional, amazing musicians! They made our wedding reception so memorable and fun. Thanks to them, every guest was on the dance floor singing and dancing all night. We even begged them for an encore and they complied and didn’t disappoint! Seriously the best night of our lives and Blaze the City was a huge part of making it the best ever. Our first dance song is sort of an unknown song but they learned it for us and absolutely crushed it. We loved how they perfectly performed every song. Thank you for a night we will never forget!

    Blaze The City was awesome!

    We are so happy we chose Blaze The City via ECE for our wedding band. We enjoyed how they played a mix of everything for everyone and had many friends and family rave about them as well.

    The Root Doctors - A must have!!

    We had an absolute blast having The Root Doctors at our wedding! Picking our wedding band was one of our biggest, and most fun decisions for our big day. We knew the style of music that we wanted and spent hours listening to the different band suggestions. The Root Doctors really stuck out to us and we knew they were going to be the perfect band for our wedding. From having both strong male and female lead vocalists, to amazing musicians, to a fun light show, we couldn't have asked for anything more from The Root Doctors! The Root Doctors do a fantastic job at reading your crowd and playing to that. They were down on the dance floor with us having a great time. We've had people tell us that our wedding has been one of the most fun they've attended! We knew working with East Coast Entertainment would make the process so easy. During the midst of our planning, our initial agent left due to COVID and we were re-assigned to Reid. Reid took over and took great care of us! We had to move our wedding venue and Reid was super helpful making sure everything was up-to-date so we wouldn't have to worry. We highly recommend The Root Doctors, Reid, and ECE!
