Our Story

The EastCoast Entertainment Story

EastCoast Entertainment (ECE) was founded during the fall of 1976 in Richmond, VA by Dennis Huber and Steve Thomas. Specializing in college, club and private party bookings, Dennis and Steve used their musical backgrounds to ensure that every client had the perfect entertainment at their event.

As our clients graduated from college, began careers, and started families, ECE became the top choice for all their entertainment needs. With over 80% of our business coming from referrals, ECE quickly expanded into the wedding and corporate markets.

Now, over 30 years later, we are proud to serve clients from coast to coast and around the world. EastCoast Entertainment has also expanded geographically with 10 offices located across the country.

In 1998, ECE was deeply saddened by the passing of Dennis Huber, who lost his battle with cancer. He is still remembered and honored by his ECE family through the Dennis Huber award that is given to the agent or band that demonstrates the honesty, integrity and work ethic that Dennis exhibited.

Steve Thomas retired from EastCoast Entertainment in 2012.

In 1976, our business was founded on a few key principles that served as a base for our decision making and daily interactions. These principles shaped our company in the early years and helped create the tremendous growth and longevity we see today:

Honesty: In everything we do

Integrity: As the foundation for our working relationships

Quality: A commitment to provide the best service and product

Diversity: An environment that allows everyone to succeed
