Mother of the Bride

I cannot thank you enough for the incredible job Trademark did for my daughter's wedding. I have had so many rave compliments, about every single aspect - the music, the perfect sound level for different times, and perfect amount of interaction with the crowd. Another comment was how you wasted no time setting up and choosing the next song - those drum sticks clicked and you went instantly into the music.  

There were people dancing even when they were supposed to be eating dinner - isn't that the biggest compliment of all to the band? When they would rather dance than eat short ribs and crab cakes?!!!! The flow of the evening was superb and I can honestly say you made the evening.

I have already given your name to two friends, so hopefully before too long I will be at a venue where you will be playing again.

In the meantime, please thank your musicians again from me, and tell them how much they were appreciated.

It was such a pleasure working with James.  He contacted me well in advance of the concert date and then when it got closer, to send me the details of the band set-up and to find out who the sound company was so that he could touch base with them.  So professional, one of the more professional bands I have dealt with.  To say they were a big hit with the crowd last night is an understatement!   I have gotten some great feedback on the band’s performance and how much they enjoyed the music and energy of the band.  I enjoyed it myself and had a smile on my face watching the pure joy in the crowd from kids to the elderly.  We will definitely have them back!!

Wedding

Trademark just blew this town away! They were fantastic, phenomenal and beat our expectations by a hundred fold. Our dance floor was packed from the first song to the last song. I have never seen that. The guest list was ages 17 to 60 and Trademark hit a total home run for every guest there. They are the most professional group out there! They are wonderful to deal with....they know there job and get it done. Our family has memories that will last a life time.

Thanks for finding Trademark for our party.

We really enjoyed Trademark. They created a great atmosphere that all of our guests loved to dance to. Everyone raved about the band all night. We greatly enjoyed having them. Off stage they were easy to work with as well.

You all we're AWESOME last evening and everyone has been raving today about your music and how much fun they had dancing. Thank you so much, and I know we will be enjoying Trademark's music again. I only wish the Ravens were playing as well as you played last evening.

Thank you again for making our party GREAT!

Trademark performed at our daughter's wedding at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond on July 5th and they were absolutely fantastic! I can't imagine a better band for a wedding...or any other event for that matter. The dance floor was chock-full the entire evening. I haven't danced as much as I did that night in 30-plus years (or maybe even my entire life) and many guests who never dance were on the floor most of the evening as well. The band was simply superior. The musicians and vocalists provided a stellar performance that delighted the crowd for the entire duration of the evening. I can't count the number of people, both young and old, who commented on how great they were. So glad my daughter chose them!

These guys did my daughters wedding. They are just AWESOME! We have been to a lot of events where they have preformed, and this is why we planned the wedding around when they were available. They are absolutely 2nd to none! The interaction with the audience is unbelievable.

On Saturday, June 8th, 2013, my daughter got married at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Washington,. D.C. As part of the wedding day celebration, we contracted with your organization to have the band "Trademark" perform at the wedding's reception. The band's performance was absolutely astounding !! From start to finish, the dance floor was packed and ALL of the reception attendees were participating in dancing, singing along, and just having a good time. The members of Trademark made this wedding day celebration one to remember for the ages. My THANKS for a job well done !!

I just wanted to thank you all immensely for the absolutely amazing job that you all did at Joe and I's wedding on April 25th!!!! You all were on fire and have amazing talent! Everyone had an absolute blast and are still talking about the band. We loved how you got everyone so involved and had the whole party just rocking! All of our guests (including Joe) thought that me and the girls had rehearsed Stop in the Name of Love...everyone loved it!!! Our photographers said that they've never seen such a party (and they mostly photograph weddings!). The photographers said that they turned around and at least 175 people were packed onto the dance floor getting low and everyone had a smile on their face and were having the time of their life! When you all stopped playing everyone said that they could have kept on dancing for 5 more hours! Seriously, you all were PHENOMONAL!! I will recommend you again and again to friends in the area that are getting married. We so much appreciate the fabulous job that you all did and hope that you all had fun as well. We had an absolute blast and will always remember the evening for the fantastic entertainment! Thank you so much again!

They are an absolutely fantastic band and numerous people told me how much they enjoyed both dancing and listening to their music. They are very versatile and provided a wide range of music that was well received by the older people as well as the young adults.

They were absolutely fantastic, a joy to work with. Very interactive-we had an 84 yr old lady leading the conga line. It's the best entertainment we've ever had. These people didn't know what entertainment was until we called EastCoast Entertainment!

Thank you so much for helping us to secure Trademark for our daughter's wedding reception. We heard nothing but glowing comments all night about how wonderful they were and I thought they were fabulous. They were engaging and everyone was dancing and having a good time. It all ended so quickly, I wish we had them for an additional hour.

A friend of mine who had a DJ for his daughter's wedding and I had this discussion about the value of a band vs. a DJ. We agreed to disagree on the merits of each. During the reception he came up to me and said I was right there is no comparison and he thought Trademark was exceptionally good. They wore the white dinner jackets and black pants which matched the black and white theme of the wedding which made everything seem so coordinated.

Did your future clients make it to the reception to listen to them? There was so much going on I don't think anyone would have seen them.

Thanks again for all your help because without you I don't think we would have found them. Several other couples told us they had them at their daughter's wedding in the past and loved them.

Wedding Guest

On September 29th in Richmond, Va. we attended a wedding. The Trademark Band played for the wedding reception. They were OUTSTANDING! The band was versatile, musically fabulous, and perfect for the evening. My husband and I, plus many other guests felt that the band was the best one we had ever heard. We wanted to buy a CD, but they did not have one. Just thought you should know how terrific we thought the band was!

Thanks for all your help and insight on picking the right band for our wedding. They were awesome and I couldn't have asked for a better band and performance. Everyone loved Trademark and were consistently asking me who they were etc. Most importantly Rachael and I thought they were fabulous and we will definitely recommend them to others and think about using them again for any other functions suited. James, the band leader, was great to work with and very accommodating when it came to our iPod list. Overall I'd give them a two thumbs up! Thanks again for everything.

We heard nothing but great things about the band. We people loved them!! Our presenting sponsor even said he was going to book them for an upcoming event he will be having, so that was good to hear. It was nice too also have that interaction with the band. On several numbers they actually had people from the audience on stage with them and that added to the fun. James Carson emailed me first thing this morning to ask about the event. I thought that was a nice touch. We will definitely use Trademark again.

Absolutely we will use Trademark again!!! I have been in this position for 15 years and planned a lot of events. I have never had one where there was people dancing the entire night. With the last band we had, there would be whole songs that no one danced and the same story with a couple of DJs. With Trademark, our colleagues were dancing during dinner and the dance floor stayed full right up to the end. I have heard over and over again about how much everyone enjoyed the band and wished they had played longer.

Trademark was very professional and I honestly can not say enough about them. They were W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L and helped to make our event a huge success! If they need a referral, I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. If you can not guess, I was extremely satisfied.

I had to let you know how great the band was for my daughter's wedding reception at James River on 6th August! How much fun! I want to have another party so I can have them! They took the party to a whole other level and it was a blast! What a great band! Thank you so much - they were a huge part of the success of the evening and could not have been easier to work with!
