During the ‘80s and ‘90s East Coast further developed its reputation as a high energy Party Band, building a loyal following throughout the tri-state area—from the Hamptons on Long Island to Hunter Mountain Upstate New York. It was during this era the Tom and Stevie B joined the band and other musical relationships were kindled that would bear fruit in the decades to come. The band had the opportunity to share the stage with notables like John Belushi, Wilson Pickett, Tower of Power, and a host of others.
In the late 90’s, East Coast Band was selected to provide all the music for the wedding of “Mr. & Mrs. New York City” at Grand Central Station! The bride and groom were married by then mayor Rudolph Giuliani, and the ceremony and reception were covered extensively by New York’s Fox 5 TV and the syndicated show “American Journal”.
The new millennium brought high profile events performing for and with many celebrities from the entertainment, sports and political worlds: Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Vanessa Williams, John Belushi, LL Cool J, Russell Simmons, Matt Lauer, Jerry Seinfeld, Martha Stewart, Mookie Wilson, Ron Guidry, Michael Kaye, Dikembe Mutombo, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Rudy Giuliani, Mario Cuomo, George Pataki and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg to name but a few. With a loyal client list that includes Sony, Citicorp, ESPN, Deutsche Bank, PriceWaterhouseCoopers plus many hundreds of other groups, organizations and individuals, choosing East Coast for your next event should be one of your easiest and most confident decisions!
