    My daughters wedding 11/10/2018

    Ellie Schwarz was a warm and considerate professional in helping us plan this special day for our daughter's wedding. Listening to our desires, she recommended the perfect band, The Royal Suits, and got them to agree to come to Jacksonville, Florida from North Carolina for our special day.
    They were amazing musicians who played one song after another and kept the dance floor jumping. The band started with 60's music and progressed to current hits throughout the 4 hour party with little to no time between songs. The Cummer museum staff, professional wedding planner, photographer and guests were in amazement with there performance and professionalism.
    I want to come up with a new idea for a party just to use East Coast and The Suits again!
    Thanks to Ellie and the band for making this event over the top!

    Book your next entertainment with ECE!!

    We had 5 months to plan our wedding and had a great experience with David Krush, East Coast Enterainment! David was extremely prompt, courteous and delivered options within our budget. We were extremely happy with one of the best bands, Soul Jam! I highly recommend using ECE! They have been in the business for many years, know the industry and have a stellar reputation!

    Very quick response

    EastCoast was super helpful in our search to find the right music for our wedding reception. We knew we wanted a band but didn't know where to start to find the right group. ECE stepped with many good options, and after reviewing the demo tracks, we found just the group. ECE was very prompt with their responses, and they made the process of doing business with them seamless. I'd recommend them to anyone who wants high-quality music without the frustrations of finding musicians on your own.

    Loved working with them!

    Barry from ECE helped us find and book an amazing band (Mr. Potato Head) and was so pleasant to work with throughout the process! We would absolutely recommend him and ECE, in general, to others who are looking for a band that is well-suited to the type of music and overall vibe that they are seeking at their weddings!

    They were incredible - we were looking for a band that would get everyone out of their seats dancing, and GTL certainly delivered. People are still commenting to me that our wedding was the biggest dance party they've ever been to. Highly recommend.

    We booked our wedding band, Right to Party through ECE! East Coast Entertainment was so fabulous to work with and made everything so easy on us. They made sure everything went smoothly. Right to Party was absolutely FANTASTIC!!! They made our entire wedding and we’re the sole thing we got the most compliments on! Everyone was on the dance floor all night! Right to Party was fun, engaging, and so energetic! We could not say enough good things about them and ECE!

    After being unable to secure our “1st choice” band, Barry worked with us and helped us select another. The Business, the band we selected on Barry’s recommendation, far exceeded our expectations! The dance floor was packed the entire night! The Business is much more than a band; they are entertainers, commanded the room and are excellent musicians. If I had to select a band again, they would now be my first choice! I have had many guests from the wedding tell us they’ve never seen a dance floor that fun and hopping.... EVER! The Business even accompanied us, after the sparkler exit, by heading a Second Line down to a pub for late night drinks. So festive and different! ECE is so professional and easy to work with. They helped make our evening perfect.

    Drew was awesome and worked with me the entire way. Punctual, professional, and friendly.
    Our band, The Nigel Experience, was the best we could have asked for. I recommend them to anyone in need of a fun band of professional, friendly musicians. Worth every penny (and honestly, worth much more than we paid!!)

    Incredible!!! I heard Fantasy for the first time back in 2014 and ever since then I knew I wanted them to play for my wedding reception. Once I secured my wedding date, I immediately contacted Barry with East Coast Entertainment to book Fantasy! He was very professional and answered all my questions right away. Fantasy played beautiful background music during our dinner and we had a completely packed dance floor all night. They are amazing at keeping the crowd into the music for their whole performance. We couldn't be happier that we chose Fantasy and Steve is wonderful to work with!! Our guests will never forget our wedding reception and we owe that to Fantasy! Thank you guys so much for being such a huge part in making our wedding the best day of our lives and making it an unforgettable night!

    Irresistible Groove created a wedding reception experience for the memory books! They were incredible musicians and played for THREE STRAIGHT HOURS so that our party kept going without any drop in the energy and fun! They were wonderful to work with in the planning process, had a huge song selection, and took our recommendations for genres and ran with it perfectly! Definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding reception to hire IG and the memories and pictures show it! Highly recommend working with ECE - great group!

    Five stars across the board! We sought out MPH per the recommendation of a family-friend and booked them as soon as we could! MPH brought the house down, and left every wedding guest with memories they will never forget. The dance floor was never empty, and everyone had a blast! Thank you, Doug Jervey and Mr. Potatohead!

    The Band Punch was AMAZING! Their talent, crowd engagement, lighting, and obvious passion for what they do put me at ease as a bride with so many other things to worry about! I contacted Barry the week of 11/29/16 to book the Band Punch for my wedding date of 12/9/17. After that I was contacted by Rodney Ogden the month of the wedding to work out last minute details such as first dance/last dance songs and music to be played during cocktail hour, dinner, and during breaks. The Band Punch got the entire crowd engaged and the dance floor never less than 90% of attendees at any given time. It was simply amazing. We still have our guests tell us how much fun they had and how talented the band was. I would book the Band Punch 1,000X over. They are worth every penny!! Book fast as they book up! See a few pictures attached from our reception!

    All of our guests are still raving about The Royal Suits. They were the absolute highlight of our wedding. We were looking for a band who could do the Motown-genre songs but also some indy stuff. The Royal Suits know how to cross genres SEAMLESSLY. We had an insanely amazing rendition of "Skinny Love" by Birdy, but also THE BEST Michael Jackson covers you'll ever hear. "I never knew a wedding band could be so incredible!" and "they played songs better than the original artists!" and "I'm hiring them for OUR wedding!" were just a few excerpts of the comments we got. If you're considering them, look no further -- seriously this will be the best decision you'll make at your wedding!!!! Their performance energy, technical musical talent/abilities and willingness to be flexible and work with you on pretty much anything made these guys my absolute FAVORITES.
