Private Party

The Troupers were amazing! I had had so many people comment about what an great band they were! They did a great job playing great, low volume music during dinner, and then kicked it up a notch and had everyone out on the dance floor after dinner! They were very versatile, and made sure everyone was having a good time! They did a great job with the final song we had them learned, played all the songs we requested and did a great job selecting additional songs based on the vibe during dinner and dancing.

The Troupers and ECE were easy to work with, and I would definitely recommend them to any looking for a great, fun band for their event!

Thanks again!

Troupers performance was absolutely stunning! Not a bad song in their entire repertoire. Great flexibility shown by Bill in meeting our last minute requests. Troupers is a perfect choice for weddings. They have our strongest recommendation.

Charity Gala

The Troupers were fantastic at our annual gala, The Black Tie & Tails Ball benefiting Carolina Tiger Rescue! They added so much to the atmosphere and success of the event. Our guests had more fun on the dance floor than any prior year and the band knows how to please their audience with selections from a huge play list. We can't recommend them enough.

Mother of the Bride

We absolutely loved them. They had one little slip-up, moving into some get-down funk that caused the bride to say "where's the Motown and Beach?" so I went up to them and said no more of that, remember here's what the bride and groom want. and that's exactly what we had the rest of the night. People stayed on the dance floor until the end and had a great time. Then poor Bill had to call me Monday to tell me that I failed to sign my check! He was very understanding and nice about that. They learned "Somewhere Out There" especially for us. That's Kathryn's "daddy song"----or really that's Daddy's "Kathryn song"----The Troupers did a great job with it. James Ingram would be proud! We all, bride and daddy included, were quite tearful. Sweet time, beautiful memories. I would highly recommend the Troupers and appreciate your steering me in that direction.

The Troupers were great! We had a wonderful time and danced the entire night. I know all of the guests had a blast as well. Bill was wonderful and played exactly what we wanted. I don't think we could have asked for a better band.

Thank you for everything that you have done to help us with our event. I will certainly be sure to recommend EastCoast Entertainment and you specifically to friends and family in the future.
