Heartbeat of Soul was formed with three major concepts in mind: versatility, Musical Variety,and Superb Showmanship. As entertainers, the group sets only the highest of standards and will accept nothing less. From the choreographed dance steps in the Blues Brothers medley to the wireless guitar dancing and playing through the audience, Heartbeat of Soul always maintains a high level of excitement. Whether it's high energy Top 40, Carolina Beach, or those good old Oldie Goldies, their song list can be shaped to your exact taste.
Heartbeat of Soul regards entertainment as their business...AND THEY KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS!

I thought Heartbeat of Soul did a wonderful job catering to our needs for our Fraternity's Parents' Formal. Heartbeat of Soul was extremely flexible as we needed to push their starting time back twice during the actual event and they did so without complaints. The selection of music fit both generations of guests very well and had people dancing throughout the night. Their ability to read and even interact with the crowd was a strong aspect of theirs. Overall we had a very successful event and Heartbeat of Soul was a main reason for that. I would definitely recommend them to anyone else.

Thank you so much for your help. We had a great experience with Heart Beat of Soul and they truly did an outstanding job. Should anyone ask, I would not hesitate to recommend them or EastCoast Entertainment.
Thank you again,

We were thrilled with Heartbeat of Soul and their performance at our wedding in April. The band was professional and entertaining, and thanks to their wide array of songs to play they kept our entire party dancing all night. People literally said it was one of the most fun weddings they have ever been to and I owe a lot of that to Heartbeat of Soul. Thanks so much!
Margaret W. (April 26th, 2013)
Lewis, Heartbeat of Soul made our day extra special. It all starts with having a band that is dependable. A band that does what they promise and shows on time, plays like they truly love what they are doing. And oh yes, a band that is awesome. Your sound and your vocals were spot on and I heard time and time again from our friends how great the band was and wanted to know their name. Congratulations on another satisfied customer and thank you for making a day of giving away our daughter to marriage the true celebration it deserves.
Again, thank you Lewis,

Everyone has been talking about how much they loved Heartbeat of Soul at the wedding reception!
You were amazing!
Our crowd really loves to dance and you were the perfect band for them.
We also had older people who wanted to talk and listen and you were very sensitive and didn't get too loud!
You were the perfect band for us!
Ruth B. (May 18th, 2013)
The band was absolutely fantastic. Jake and I so appreciated that you learned two special songs for us and dug "hava nagila" out of the archive. We also were grateful that you were able to work with our schedule. You kept the guests (and us) on our feet and dancing from the beginning to the end. My biggest fear for my wedding was that the guests would leave early and no one would stay till the end to see us off. I am convinced that this didn't happen (quite the contrary actually) because of how the band paced the evening. The guests were dancing until the lights came on. Even at the end of the evening, the band kept things interesting and fun for all. Thank you for all of your hard work. You helped to make our day very special.

Steve, the band was great! People packed the dance floor until they quit playing. They were all nice folks and fun to be with. They even let me sit in on guitar for a song, which was a load of fun. I've never played before a crowd before. Can you send me Lewis's email so I can thank him as well? Thanks for the recommendation!

Lynn/Lewis - I wanted to write you both to tell you how amazingly wonderful Heartbeat of Soul was at our wedding. We don't have enough great things to say about them. From the very start, your company, and you both were ultimate professionals. You were so easy to work with and very accommodating to our every request and question. During our reception, the band was completely engaged with our guests. They easily handled all of our MC'ing duties with great repore. All night they were able to gauge the crowd and play songs according to our guests. Not once during the night did I have one worry. The variety and range of songs played were really fabulous. All band members are so very talented. We had so many guests come up to us during the night to tell us how great the band was. Our reception was filled with laughter, great music, love and dancing, all thanks to Heartbeat of Soul. I would hands down recommend them for any wedding reception or social function. I hope we will be able to use them again down the road.
Please feel free to take my comments and add them. Reading other referrals was such a big help when we were selecting a wedding band. I have a lot of great photos of the band and their interaction with our guests that I would love to share. I will send them when I receive copies. Thanks again for everything!
Molly M. (May 5th, 2012)
The band was sensational. We received more compliments from guests about HOS than any of our vendors. They sounded great and had an energetic stage presence. According to my mom, Mickey Magid (the wife of Larry Magid from Electric Factory) said they were the best wedding band she has seen perform.
All I have to say is the bar was empty and the dance floor was packed all night.
Thank you for the perfect recommendation and all of your assistance. HOS made the wedding extra special. Please send Lewis and the band my compliments and high praise. I would recommend them to anyone.

Dear Lewis - Shame on me for not writing you sooner! Please use any or all of "my review!"
I am a firm believer that a band can make or break an event and without reservation Heartbeat of Soul made our event! I have had more people ask where we found you guys and how to get in touch with you-in fact my next door neighbor who heard you at our daughter's reception just booked you for her daughter's wedding next June in Charleston, SC. Everyone said how fun and upbeat and just downright fabulous the band was. The fact that you really engaged our guests, moved around among them and played just the right mix to keep the party going for old and young people alike is what makes you so very good. I am convinced we could have paid twice as much for a band that would probably would have been half as good as you are. To top it off, Lewis Wilson is the epitome of the perfect band leader-attentive, polite, timely on communication and extremely accommodating within reason. This band will NOT disappoint. Highly recommended!

All the comments I've received about the band were very positive. My daughter and her husband thought they were great and several of the thank you notes we've received from guests specifically noted the band. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend, and have already been asked for their name several times. Thanks for your help, and if you contact them thank them for me. I've often advised friends that in the end, it's the band that makes the reception, and all I'm hearing is how good ours was - Thanks!

Lewis / Heartbeat of Soul - Thank you so much for sharing your amazing musical talent with our family and friends during me and Wesley's wedding reception on June 18, 2011! We are still hearing compliments about how you all played really fun music, interacted with everyone in the crowd, and never allowed a dull moment on the dance floor! I greatly appreciate your ability to so seamlessly transition from the wedding party announcements, to our first dance, to the cake cutting, to the congo line, etc. etc.! I felt so confident with you all running the night's 'to-dos' and then playing incredible music in between!
I would recommend you in a heartbeat! :) Best of luck! - Thanks again,
Lauren H. (June 18th, 2011)
Lewis - Thank you for all that you and your band did to make our wedding night absolutely perfect. You all did a terrific job keeping the party alive and all friends and family at the reception absolutely loved the music. From the pre-wedding planning to the actual performance, you all were top notch and I could not have asked for a better band. We learned about your band after playing for our friends' wedding and we also hope to also pass your name along to our friends for future weddings. Thank you for making our night memorable. -Lauren C.
