Steve's start in the business began when he hired bands and planned events as president of the Bachelor's Club of Augusta. After a couple of years of working for a local agency, those relationships led to a job in EastCoast's Charlotte office where Steve headed up our very successful college division for approx 10 years. In 1996, he had the great opportunity to relocate his family, open the Charleston office, and become a partner at EastCoast. Developing the coastal region has been a wonderful and fulfilling challenge for Steve.
With a great roster of artists, lots of hard work, and attention to detail EastCoast Charleston has been positioned as the top entertainment source for discerning event planners, brides, resorts and other talent buyers in the region.
Steve had the pleasure of helping form the original "Alive After Five" concert series in Charlotte that continues today and is extremely proud to have brought the concept to Charleston by starting the very successful Charleston Alive After Five series on Charleston harbor. His favorite moments have been many great personal conversations about the business and life in general with an interesting gambit of entertainers from Tony Bennett to Jason Mraz, Junior Walker to Dave Matthews, plus Edwin McCain to the Godfather of Soul himself, James Brown. Besides booking events in all parts of the country and the islands, Steve has had a blast producing hundreds of challenging shows such as Charlie Daniels on a barge on Shem Creek , a charity event with Sara Evans at an intimate nightclub in South Beach, and Outkast/50 Cent in a college gym.
Although these are some of the unique events and entertainers Steve has worked with over the years, his favorite part of the business is what he does everyday.....listening and learning what each buyer envisions, then matching the perfect entertainment for that particular event or wedding, while treating every client as though their event is his most important ever. Steve says, "The fact is, every event I am involved with is a hugely important night in the life of that buyer and it deserves a great shot at perfection."
I always tell my brides, "I'm spoiled and like working with the best.". As a bridal consultant, I want professionals I can depend upon. It gives me piece of mind working with Steve Harry of EastCoast Entertainment. Throughout the years Steve has provided top notch entertainment for many weddings I've coordinated. The entertainers are on time, dressed appropriately, set up and in place - ready to perform - before the wedding begins. Seeing the guests out on the dance floor -dancing up a storm - confirms Steve has once again has suggested the best entertainment for the occasion. Having Steve Harry and EastCoast Entertainment as part of The Wedding Team makes my job a piece of cake!' ~Cheryl Cox
