The Business is the real deal. Six of the best musicians around, including a horn section and powerful vocals and outstanding showmanship, deliver an unbelievable performance for any occasion. We LOVE finding the pulse of an audience and raising that pulse to create an experience far beyond the ordinary. We insist on your event being extraordinary in every way.

Everybody likes a buffet, but The Business is fine dining. Each song crafted out of our passion for the music and delivered to exceed your expectations. Each event tailored to the last detail and managed with the greatest of ease. And each show delivered with the energy and enthusiasm that will cause you and your guests to forget the rest of the world for a while and fully enjoy the moment. That is The Business and that is our guarantee of a great time.

We created a song list around our personalities and not the other way around because it is important to us that what we do is authentic. That commitment has served us so well and we have seen the crowd response so over the top, week after week, that we don't even feel bad anymore when we say, "No, we do not play any Bruno Mars". All of the songs that we play are familiar, but you've never heard them like this. We play this music as if we wrote it. The result is a concert-like, high energy, engaging and most importantly, REAL experience.

We work very hard in the weeks leading up to your event to know every detail and expectation and we work hand-in-hand with planners and coordinators so that the mechanics of an event never get in the way of the event itself. The Business is as professional as the name implies, but once the business has been taken care of, The
Business takes care of the party. We guarantee a great time.

The Business was WONDERFUL! We have nothing but positive things to say about them. All of our friends and family can't stop talking about what a great celebration it was on Saturday, and the biggest thing they highlight is the band.

Please tell Jim, Alex, and the other 5 musicians that we are so incredibly happy with how everything turned out, and we'd happily recommend The Business to friends and family in the future.



The Business was so AWESOME!! We really loved them so much. Everyone was asking about them!! I thought they were great to work with and our venue made a point to tell us they felt the same way. They are really unique and do not feel like just another wedding band at all. Jim's voice is unbelievable They are so talented and they killed it!! They definitely made our night.



I cannot begin to tell you how INCREDIBLE the band was at our wedding on April 23.  They were absolutely fabulous and exceeded my expectations by far!  Jim was professional, personable, and an exceptionally talented singer.  Every guest raved about their performance, many saying that it was the best wedding they have ever been. Deepest thanks for an unforgettable night!

Hi Ellie – Everything was fantastic.  The Business was the perfect band for this party and certainly exceeded our expectations.  We will not hesitate to recommend you and The Business for future events.  We look forward to working with you again in the future.

They were AMAZING!!!

I love working with Jim and his band. They look great sound great and do such a great job!!

Aria and I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the Business being part of our wedding celebration!  We were so incredibly impressed with your professionalism and most importantly, your amazing musical talent and energetic performance!  Thanks for making the trip all the way from Murphy, now you truly know the meaning of that phrase, from Murphy to Manteo!  Our crowd loves to party, and your band really knew how to keep us on the dancefloor all night.  Everyone was raving about how awesome you guys were!!  The jazz at the beginning was perfect to set the mood and we really appreciate you working with our timeline so we could incorporate the persian ceremony. The fact that people of all ages and all backgrounds were flocking to the dancefloor really speaks volumes to how well the band reads the crowd and can elevate the party atmosphere. The nonstop set was phenomenal, I think everyone was soaked with sweat from dancing their hearts out! You guys are the complete package and I would highly, highly recommend your band to anyone looking for a group to really take their party to the next level.

Aaron S.


THEY WERE AMAZING!!! Everyone danced until the very last song, and even chanted for an encore....and so they came back on and performed one last song for us. Ive never seen that at a wedding before!!! We overheard so many people saying it was the best band they've ever heard at a wedding too. Excellent crowd pleaser and made the wedding so absolutely perfect. Thank you for checking in and being so thorough with everything. I could not be happier with everything.

The Band was out standing. They were so cute with the flower girls and the dancing fool of a ring bearer during their set up.  The music was OUTSTANDING.  We had the wedding of the year all because of the band. (I will send you the video of the dancing fool in a minute.)  The bride and groom danced almost every dance (except while eating) so did I.  I am going to send a shout out to the band on Facebook later today.  Is the official name The Business Band?  It was fantastic.

Ann L.

Bride & Groom

I cannot say enough good things about Business!  We were absolutely thrilled with their performance, not to mention their professionalism, kindness, and sincerity on the day of and leading up to our wedding.  The bridesmaids and I arrived around 4:15pm to the venue (45 minutes before the ceremony start-time) and I immediately heard the band warming up and finalizing their sound check.  They sounded so amazing that I ran downstairs and out into the main room (where the bride is allegedly not supposed to be, everyone could see me!) and I just clapped and danced while the band warmed up with a joy that couldn't be contained.  It doesn’t sound like much, but just hearing a few chords from them got me so happy, excited, and ready to celebrate--they sounded so good!!  It was such a delight to hear them and remember that this was a celebration, not something to be nervous about.

They played an absolutely lovely jazz set during dinner. My husband said he hardly ate just because he wanted to focus on the music.  They did a wonderful cover of my husband and I’s first dance song (a song by Sam Cooke), and then kicked off the party in style.  All of our guests had the most fantastic time and kept asking, “Where did you find them!???” One of my best friends called me the next day (she was a college swimmer) and said that she had never been so sore in her life; they made her dance so hard.   My mom danced so hard that she literally couldn't walk the next day.  Although I feel bad for my mom, she and I both agreed that for a band, THAT IS AMAZING.  Everyone (including my husband and I) had the time of their lives.

A few friends and I have already made plans to drive to Asheville and catch them on a Friday night when they play at Isis (the wedding was five days ago, so we did quick work on our plans to see them again)!  If it is a private event, we will likely just crash it.  We have to see them again!  Jim and the band were also so accommodating--we had multiple requests (song dedications, shout-outs, specific songs to play at certain times, etc.) and they made it all seem to fluid and easy.  My husband’s father is a huge Elvis fan, and the band played a song dedicated to my husband's father.  He came up to me after the song ended and said, “Thank you so much for that,” and gave me a huge hug.  That is just one of the special moments that I'll take away from our wedding, and the Business band made so many moments like that one happen.

I actually can’t say enough good things about this band.  They are incredible musicians (we were blown away by the trumpet player!), kind people, wonderful professionals, and so much fun together.  Tell me where you would like for me to sing their praises publicly and I will be happy to do it!  They truly made our night.  We can't imagine any other band possibly doing for our reception what the Business band did.  My father was blown away and even went back to individually

Hi Ted,

This is Alice, but I think I can speak for everyone when I say the Business was wonderful at our reception. I had so many compliments from our guests about how amazing they were. They kept the momentum going the entire time and so many people were dancing we were wishing we had gotten a larger dance floor (people were dancing in the grass).

They were awesome and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band.

Hi Ellie- 

The Business was WONDERFUL.  The music was great and everyone was dancing all night long.  I’ve received lots of compliments from friends about how good the band was. Everyone enjoyed the band.

And you and everyone else were absolutely correct in that they were a pleasure to deal with.  Extremely nice and did everything we asked of them. I can’t say enough nice things about. Thank you so much for suggesting them and thank you for all your help with the planning.  Everything was perfect.

Ginger A.

Hi Ellie,

Our event went extremely well! As I remembered from our last encounter, Jim and the band were very courteous, professional and were absolutely fantastic! We received rave reviews from our guests concerning all aspects of our party, but specifically the band. We don’t have much of a dancing crowd but they were able to coax them out on the dance floor and I really believe our people would have stayed out there even longer if given the opportunity.  I would highly recommend and certainly would book The Business again in the future. It is a pleasure to work with you as well as Jim. 

It has been a little crazy around here this week so I have not been able to express my gratitude to Jim for their exceptional performance for us. Would you mind to pass this along? 

I hope we can work together again for the event next year. Thank you for checking in.

Jim and the Business were so Amazing and professional on Sunday night. They are all so friendly and the members were very impressed! 

We hope to have them back again. 

Thank you!

We hired The Business to play at our daughter's wedding reception on January 3rd and our guests are still talking about them! The Business made the night so much fun! I can't say enough good things about this group of musicians. They're professional, super talented, easy to work with, and they played everything we requested. Anything we had requested that they didn't normally play they put on a playlist for breaks which worked out great. There was never a single song where people weren't dancing. They maintained a fun happy energy throughout the entire event, and were good with the mic too. We loved their sound! Honestly, we were so pleased and would highly recommend, and would definitely hire them again, should the opportunity arise. Five stars!!

They were great!  Professional, and nice guys too.  Showed up on time, and were ready to go when we needed them.  Jim was very accommodating of last minute changes to the agenda.  Every comment I’ve received about them from attendees has been complimentary, and they played a big part in making the event a great success.  

Thank you for helping us find them, we’ll be back next year!!

Dan E.


There are not enough positive words to describe our experience. Jim and his band were fabulous - flexible and professional to the very end. We enjoyed Tom playing during or ceremony all the way to Shout as the very last song of the evening. There was never a moment when the dance floor was empty - Jim and the Business put on a great show and we couldn't have asked for a better band! I'm hoping they get more business from the evening - many people raved about them and asked for contact information. 

Thank you for your help securing an important part to our lifetime of memories from the wedding weekend!

Tyson H.



I cannot say enough nice things about The Business.  Not only did they provide us with amazing entertainment and music at our wedding, but Jim was extremely responsive and professional throughout the entire wedding planning process.  Jim really went above and beyond to give us the wedding of our dreams, learning additional songs for our first dances and attending vendor meetings in which he was not required to attend, but he took the time out of his day to make sure he was there.  He also checked in with both my Dad and I midway through the night of our wedding to make sure we were pleased with the energy and entertainment he and his band were providing.  Jim is an absolute class act and a pleasure to work with.  His soulful sound and love for music made for an unforgettable night of entertainment and dancing...

Thank you - EastCoast Entertainment and The Business for making our wedding so special.  You guys rock!!!

Shannon V.


They were great and so professional.  They more than most of my vendors went out of their way to get to know my preferences ahead of time so they could get to know me and deliver what we hoped for on our wedding day.

I am so grateful to Jim.  I ended up with a day of wedding planner did not take charge.  I was so relieved to see Jim when I arrived at the reception.  He found me ran the list and just got the party started.

I have gotten so many compliments on the band.  Keary and I had so much fun dancing.  They are the right balance of class without being too uptight and just being really fun.  Our band was the best part of our wedding.

Laura Beth M.

Event Planner

It was a sincere pleasure to work with Jim and your company.  The entire experience was professional, but the follow up was (and continues to be) personal.  The Business was quite simply the best live band we've encountered (and we get to be around lots of bands)--they were accommodating, thoughtful, incredibly musical.  They were perfect for listening while we dined, and brought energy through the rest of the evening until we were really made to leave!  Jim worked with Clint on his sweet presentation and dance with Rebecca, a moment that all our friends and family will remember for a long, long time.  Most people don't necessarily comment on a band, but we had numerous comments about how much the music and dancing was enjoyed, even by folks who "don't dance".  Cory and Rebecca started the time of their life with this band, and what a great start!

The Thumbpickers were exactly what we envisioned for the cocktail hour.  I wish I'd had more time to just stand near them and enjoy the music.  Their bluegrass style was a perfect segue from the ceremony toward the celebration, and the brought the real deal to the night.

Thank you for the suggestions, and for helping to make this night surpass our dreams.

The band was incredible! They had everyone on the dance floor for four hours straight, I think the crowd even asked for an encore! We had countless guests commenting to us on how amazing the band was; we are hoping some of our friends will book them in the future so we can hear them play live again. They were very professional, and we would recommend them to anyone. They really helped make our day amazing.

Thanks for all your help, and if you ever need a formal recommendation for The Business you can contact me and my wife anytime.

Jim and The Business shined at our fundraiser. Jim connects with the energy of the audience and had the crowd dancing all evening. Everyone commented that they really enjoyed the music, the talent of the musicians and Jim's exuberance and soulful voice.

The Business was really great. They went out of their way for us to make sure everything was just perfect. We really enjoyed working with Jim- he's such a sweetheart!

We were beyond pleased with the reception. We had so much fun, and I know everyone else did as well. You guys kept the dance floor packed the whole night, which is exactly what we were hoping for. Growing up, I never gave much thought to what I wanted my wedding to be like. Never thought about the dress or the flowers or anything like that. But I did always hope that it would be a joyous occasion that would bring together all my (and my future spouse's) friends and family. Now that it's over, I can say that that dream was achieved, and your band played a big role in making the night unforgettable. So, thank you!

I've had countless guests write or call to tell us how good the band was. I have given them your name & directed them to the East Coast website. If there is any place I could leave a testimonial or write a review, I would gladly welcome the opportunity. Just let me know.

Also, I would like to thank you for your CD. We listened to it last night, and it was great!

All the best to you & the rest of the band. Thank you again.

You guys were great! We heard nothing but good comments. One person said that he thought you guys were the best band our association has ever hired! You guys play with energy and tons of skill across the board. I personally appreciated how professional and responsive you were. That was very comforting to a rookie doing this.
We had a great time in Asheville. It was one of the best conventions we have ever had.

Thanks for being a part of it. Hope to catch you guys again somewhere soon. Others might feel the same because they were asking how far you guys travel for shows.

Best of luck to you and the band!

Our expectations were blown away! We are so happy that The Business could perform at our wedding reception and will recommend you all to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much for being professional, energetic and fun. We have received many, many complements on the music at the reception - all thanks to you! You kept our friends and family dancing and having a great time during the entire reception and you were so good at "reading" the crowd and playing the right music! We cannot imagine our wedding weekend without you. We can't thank you enough!

Annie C.


Thanks so much for this message. If there were enough words to describe how amazing Business Band was, then I would do it! Seriously, they were incredible. SO easy to work with, no divas, followed the song list we wanted, had incredible talent, very engaging, and literally made the event what it was. We had so many friends and family ask for their names and information. Our venue loved working with them - said they were the easiest band they've worked with. Truly, it was one of the best decision we made during the planning process. Thanks so much for your help and patience with me as we worked through the different options. Please let me know if I can ever endorse them again!

Johnston Memorial Hospital - Medical Staff Event

I want to send a big THANK YOU to each of you for helping to make our Medical Staff event on Friday a success. I really can't thank you both enough for your hard work. Jim, The Business was amazing! The professionalism and courtesy you showed was impressive and greatly appreciated. The fact that you tailored the set list to our crowd, took the time to walk around the venue during the first few songs to check the acoustics in the room and make sure the music wasn't too overbearing, was a really nice touch. While our crowd was a bit more reserved than I had hoped, as far as dancing goes, they LOVED the music. I had numerous compliments on your band and your amazing talent. I wouldn't hesitate to book The Business for any future events and I will certainly pass on a glowing recommendation to anyone looking for a fun, energetic, crowd pleasing band. Again, I appreciate your hard work and taking the time to travel to our event. You guys were awesome and a joy to work with.

Great Band

The Business, are true professionals who make a direct connection with audience members from the moment they hit the stage. In the world of live music as in theatre, a proverbial "fourth wall" commonly separates the performers from their audience, but that wall is destroyed by The Business who create an experience where audience members are participants in the celebration as opposed to being mere consumers. I've been privileged to watch The Business perform on numerous occasions. Their shows are characterized by diversity of material, superior musicianship, and danceable rhythms. The blend of familiar songs from the sixties through the eighties never fails to produce smiles, celebratory shouts, and dance floors filled with satisfied celebrants. Audience members always feel like they've gotten more than their monies worth and leave feeling like they've participated in a celebratory experience as opposed to just attending a concert. In any field of endeavor, excellence and professionalism lead to success. The Business have demonstrated that they know how to please an audience and have developed a loyal fanbase who follow them from venue to venue to experience good times and good vibrations. I recommend them highly.

We didn't know where to begin when trying to book a band for the reception. We wanted a group that could do music that our generation and our parents (and grandparents!) could dance to, which seemed like a tall order. When my cousin (who is himself a musician in Asheville) called me to tell me that he normally hates wedding bands but saw The Business recently and thought they were great, we booked them on the spot. Jim and his team were nothing short of fantastic. They played a mix of 60s/motown, big band era, and wedding classics. We started dancing as soon as we arrived at the reception at 6ish, and danced all night long. EVERYONE was on the dance floor and had the best time. They were also extremely accommodating of our requests. They send you a list with their repertoire well in advance, and you can tell them what you absolutely want (and don't want) played. We ended up putting the same song on both lists, and when a guest specifically requested it, Jim quickly took me aside to make sure it was ok before he played it. :-) We played an iPod with country and contemporary songs during their two breaks, and they also agree to learn one new song for your event. In my case, they not only learned the song but agreed to let me sing it to my hubby. It was a highlight! Ellie, their agent at EastCoast Entertainment, handled all the administrative details leading up to the wedding with the utmost professionalism and ensured that everything went smoothly. We can't say enough nice things about The Business. Booking them was the best decision we made, and we made some good ones!

I cannot say thank you enough for being the most amazing band EVER! You guys made Rad and I's wedding night. It was simply perfection! Classy jazz into the dance party of the year...everyone is still singing your praises. You guys rocked the house, or should I say lawn... it was simply a night we will never forget. Thank you, thank you, thank you! PS. be sure to send us the album, we can't wait! PPS. You've got a family of friends in NYC and Charleston, let us know if you're ever visiting!!!

Please pass on to Jim Arrendell with The Business our many thanks for a fabulous wedding reception. The music was unbelievably good, and we loved the selections. So many of our guests wanted to know about the band, and could not say enough good things about them. I never thought I would see my wife up on the stage with a band, but Jim was able to get the two mothers to join in. Guests from NYC to Montgomery have made inquiries about The Business. And I especially appreciated their adding some more Carolina beach music selections!

Coincidentally, I received a call Tuesday from a lady in Birmingham wanting to know if I could recommend the band for her daughter's reception. Despite the distance to Birmingham, I told her she would not be disappointed with The Business.

I still have an unmarried 25 year old daughter, so I will be needing your services again in the future, but hopefully not too soon!

Thank you for assisting us with the entire process.

You guys are so incredible. Thank you so much a thousand times over for the show your band put on and the experience you created. We couldn't have been happier and our vision for the night surpassed our wildest expectations. People danced, you danced, and all of you guys rocked. We will talk about last night for the rest of our lives and when we do, we will always talk about how great you guys were. Thank you.

We look forward to seeing you again and will drop sometime at the Grove Park. Until then, be well.

I'm Just getting back to the real world after our honeymoon in California! I want you to know we absolutely LOVED this band. Every aspect of the evening was done perfectly, and I cannot tell you how many people have raved about them to us over the past few weeks. They were so professional and talented, and even hung around a bit chatting with my family afterwards. I loved their music, FANTASTIC, and they really made the reception. I don't think we stopped dancing at all. I have recommended East Coast, as well as the Business via EastCoast, several times and will continue to do so. Lots of engagements lately!

Thank you for making this process so completely easy and enjoyable, the band was one of my favorite parts of the entire experience. I appreciate you taking the time to help me find exactly what we were looking for, I couldn't have been happier!
