If you are looking for a talented, professional, and classy Jazz Duo that knows what they are doing, then hire The East Coast Duo!! We hired them to play at our 5-hour wedding reception (black tie event for 50 guests) and cannot thank them enough for doing an absolutely perfect job. Their beautiful music, professionalism and flexibility were outstanding in every way and they truly made our wedding reception a night to remember. We wanted a very elegant, intimate, and romantic atmosphere at our wedding reception, and The East Coast Duo definitely helped us to achieve this for our guests. They were also very responsive over the phone and by email, which made it a real pleasure to work with them on selecting music/songs and discussing practical details leading up to the wedding. We give The East Coast duo our highest recommendation and plan to hire them again at the next opportunity.

We had the pleasure of having the East Coast Duo play at our outdoor wedding. From booking through the end of their time at the event, Mark was a pleasure to communicate with. He and Shaun are skilled jazz musicians, and they added wonderful ambiance to the evening. We received so many compliments on the music throughout the night! We absolutely recommend the East Coast Duo for anyone looking to add lovely, live jazz music to any event and hope to have an occasion to work with them in the future!

Mark and Shaun were fabulous and a tremendously good value. Working with Mark felt like having a friend play at our wedding. Throughout the planning process he was incredibly responsive and made us feel like he truly cared about making our wedding special, not just providing a service. The day of the wedding, the music was great, and we got lots of compliments from our guests.

The East Coast Duo is spectacular. I can not imagine our wedding without them. Having live music was very important to us, and it was wonderful to see how our niece and nephews reacted to having a live band. The music created a very warm atmosphere, and since most of our guests are not big dancers, it provided the perfect ambiance to sit comfortably and talk to each other. Which is not to say that there was not dancing, because my husband and I certainly enjoyed some dancing! Mark served as our emcee, and even made a special announcement for our guests to sign the guestbook poster we had made. Mark is also just a wonderful person, and even talked to us a little about vacationing in Ireland. When we first saw the duo, they were performing at the local community college, and held a jam session at the end for the students. Their devotion to music is obvious, and I certainly love to attend future events where they are preforming. If you are considering a live band for your wedding or event, definitely hire the East Coast Duo!

There are not enough good things we can say about this group. My fiancée and I had seen the East Coast Duo play on a previous occasion at a winery and were ecstatic when we were able to book them for our wedding reception. The quality of music, as well as their flexibility in accommodating our schedule and a few of my special requests, was outstanding. This, coupled with a very reasonable rate, made every aspect of dealing with this group a delight.

 

These gentlemen definitely added a touch of class and elegance to our event and we would absolutely jump at the chance to engage them again!
