Ascension was INCREDIBLE. I have been to a lot of live band receptions and I can say that Ascension was one of the best I’ve ever experienced. The band was so nice and accommodating. All of our 300 guests had a BLAST. Thank you for all of your help during this process. It was the wedding of our dreams! And we couldn’t have done it without you and Ascension!

Greetings! I just wanted to let you know how incredible Ascension was on Saturday. We loved them. Everyone had a fabulous time dancing for three hours straight! I mean that. We didn't have any announcements or introductions so they literally played for three full hours and their transitions just continued without any stopping. There were so many people out on the dance floor the whole time. We have had so many compliments on our band choice. I think things on their end went really smoothly. They certainly did for us. Thank you again for your assistance in making Megan and Fletcher's wedding reception so great.

As a wedding planner, I see and interact with a lot of different bands. And right now, Ascension is at the top of my list! I've already had them twice and have them lined up for two more clients this year. Their showstopping talent and performance is incredible and so high energy and they are the utmost professionals, too. I seriously LOVE this band!

Ascension was absolutely fabulous. We were so happy with the band! And everyone later commented to us about how great the band was, even people who don’t dance loved them. They were wonderful interacting with our guests and getting everyone involved. The bride and bridegroom loved Ascension, it was all they were hoping for. We cannot thank you enough,

5 Stars*****

Ascension is an over-the-top, energetic band proficient in maintaining a jam-packed dance floor. The saxophonist and female lead singer periodically interacted with the dancers generating a spectacular affair. The highlight of the evening was the unrehearsed transition Ascension created when they joined with the Plantation Singers as they lead the guests to the reception area. While many of our guests raved over Ascension, the behind the scenes amiability of the band made the evening a joy for the event planners. The group was open to suggestions and even learned a new song for the mother-son dance and the vocals were spectacular. The saxophone player even led our guests on the trek across the plantation to the parking lot to see the newlyweds to their get-a-way vehicle and on their journey. Doug Baker from East Coast Entertainment recommended Ascension, and I am glad I took his advice because the website video does not do the band justice. We could not have chosen more outstanding entertainment.

I just wanted to send you a quick email and tell you how much we enjoyed the band Ascension at my daughter’s wedding in Birmingham, Alabama at The Club this past weekend. They were fabulous! The dance floor was full the whole night! The energy in the room was amazing! No one wanted to leave and because no one wanted to leave we had one of the biggest send offs I have ever seen at a wedding!! They were so wonderful and very accommodating , they played anything Nan wanted and adapted the first dance songs for them perfectly. I spoke to the three lead singers after it was over and told them how much we appreciated them and what a fabulous job they did. The were so very nice and said that they were so glad to be there and that showed the entire evening! In Nan’s top 3 most important things for her wedding was the band for the reception and Ascension nailed that wish for her. Please pass along to all the band our sincere gratitude! We will definitely recommend them and East Coast Entertainment as well. Thank you again

Ascension was absolutely wonderful!! They far exceeded my expectations! As the bride, I had prepared myself to not have that much fun at the wedding since I expected to be busy talking to guests, but I was wrong- I am positive that I had the most fun I've ever had, and that was largely thanks to the band. Ascension was so lively and interactive with the crowd. We got many compliments on Ascension throughout the night and even had a guest tell me they were going to book them for their wedding next! EastCoast Entertainment has been very easy to work with and extremely delightful, not to mention how professional they were. Rick was very quick to respond and extremely accommodating with my song requests. I love that the band asks for a list of songs you want and don't want- and they really did stick to my requests! I can't thank Ascension and EastCoast Entertainment enough for playing such a huge role in making this the best night of my life!

Ascension was absolutely wonderful!!!! They far exceeded my expectations! I wasn't expecting to have nearly as much fun as I did! The band truly made it the most fun night I've ever had. They were so interactive which made me feel so special (I had no idea I loved the spotlight so much!!)! We got a lot of compliments on Ascension and I even think one of my bridesmaids might book them for her upcoming wedding (her fiancé really loved them as well). Y'all have been so easy to work with and so accommodating. Thank you so much for making this the best night of our lives!

Everything was simply fantastic! It was a perfect night and a full dance floor up to the last song. 

The crowd loved the play list and all ages danced the night away. We could not have asked for a better time for our guests. The stage elevated the band and I do think that always makes a big difference. So much fun! I know you will be getting inquiries from some of our friends who are planning weddings in the near future.

ASCENSION was the best part of my wedding (besides the marriage part obviously). Every guest was raving about them. They interacted with all of the guests, were so flexible with my song requests/changes, absolutely listened to the style of music we wanted, and created some of the best memories of my life. East Coast Entertainment was very easy to deal with throughout the booking/planning process as well.

Thank you for such an amazing show on Sat night.  The crowd was so happy and had a blast.  You were phenomenal to work with and your quality of sound and stage presence lived up to my hopes (which isn’t an easy thing). Like I said at the close of the evening, I give you guys an A+ and don’t hand those out often (Ellie can vouch for that, haha).

You yourself were so easy and organized to work with.  The band was friendly, on time, ready, and you guys even started playing early on your own choosing.  The emcee was such a smooth and confident speaker.  You fooled everyone when the power went out, so much so, that I just thought it was a percussion interlude! I would hope that we can work together again ~ it would be a treat...

THANKS AGAIN and please pass along my praise to everyone there that night.

We had a great weekend.

We could not have asked for a better band. To say Ascension was fantastic is an understatement. We were on the dance floor from the time they started playing until their very last song. They kept everyone engaged and having fun. I can't tell you how many compliments I have received over the past couple of days, including "this is the best band I've ever seen" and "I am going to hire them for my wedding." They were absolutely incredible and made our night perfect!

Amanda, your gentle guidance and sweet personality helped set the tone! Billy, thank you for putting all of the plans into place! Gregg, what can I say? The flowers were unbelievably gorgeous! Kathy, not only was the cake delicious, but it was beautiful, everything I had wished it would be. Lindsay, you are incredible. I cannot wait to see the photos because I know how special they will be. And Tim, not but last least! WOW! How much fun your band was! My only regret was that you couldn't keep playing for hours!!!! I wish I could relive the entire night over and over! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Ascension band redefined our expectations of a party band's professionalism. In particular their coordinator, Karen was impressively accommodating, attentive, and polished in her professionalism from start to finish. A hard working, almost always available professional such as Karen could work on the White House Event coordinating staff-no kidding-she attended to our every need and anticipated many requests before they even came up! She also followed through to the finish, even helping to track down a lost sport jacket, which naturally had to be shed due to the HOT performance that the band put on!!

As to the band, these guys aren't just talented performers. Ascension band isn't just going to get your guests on the dance floor. They don't settle for merely blowing your mind. True-They do all of these things. But they were also a joy to work with. They played for our rehearsal party and really set the stage for an incredible wedding. We cannot say enough about their ability to perform and impress. Everyone raved about the quality of the music. Their medleys were phenomenal. I would give this band my very highest recommendation. As a footnote, they put on this spectacular performance on almost zero sleep because we asked them to play in a location more than 10 hours from their hometown. Talk about professionals!! Amazing!!!

Every one at our wedding reception thoroughly enjoyed the music "Ascension" played. From Grandmothers to Toddlers, the crowd got down when the band swung into one Rock and Roll classic after another. They not only played and sang, but their interaction with our guests made for a FANTASTIC night. Super sound, super show. Over and over since the wedding we have heard the same line: "Had a great time, and that band was FANTASTIC!"
Thanks again for making our daughters reception such a "hit!!!"

Just getting back and settled from our Honeymoon! Thank you for recommending such and AWESOME band! Ascension definitely exceeded my expectations and truly rocked the reception! The dance floor was packed from the start of our reception to the very end! We had the best time! If I have heard it once I have heard it 50 times from our wedding guests that the band was the "best they have ever seen at a wedding". After being quite the wedding pro myself(bridesmaid 13x) and not just because it was my wedding, I can truly say their performance and professionalism is the best I have ever seen- way above the rest!

Patrick and I had actually been to a wedding several months ago where they played at the reception and we had the best time dancing and knew that we wanted them at our wedding too! They are the best band we've ever seen and they really engaged with the crowd - which we loved. There was not a minute where people weren't dancing (even during dinner). I hope the band enjoyed themselves as well and we thank them so much for being a part of our special day. We will never forget it!

Thanks! We were BLOWN AWAY by the band. They put on an incredible show and kept the dance floor full for the entire performance. They had a great song selection and were superb musicians, but what really set them apart from any other band I've seen was their incredible energy level and the sense that they were having as much fun as we were. I've been to a good number of receptions with bands, and I know I'm biased, but I'm sure ours was the best. Quite a few of our guests have told us that they thought Ascension was the best band they've ever seen as well. We also found them easy to work with and willing to take our song requests even though I didn't get them in until a few days before the wedding. We couldn't be happier with picking Ascension.

I have just returned home to Baton Rouge from the Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons meeting in Bonita Springs Florida. I am the immediate Past President and had selected Ascension for our black tie event.
I left the party early as I was exhausted so did not have the opportunity to tell the band that they were FANTASTIC and and really made our event so special.
They dinner set selected was perfect and so was the after dinner upbeat set.

I was thrilled when you got on stage! You were all over it! Where'd you learn to play like that? The pleasure was felt all around. Also: I loved the band. You guys were tight and understood how to read the audience, preform dynamically, and manage volume. Truly impressive. If you ever need a guitarist in a pinch, I'd play just for kicks. I recommended the band to the wedding coordinator at Cherokee. In my personal opinion, your band is on a different level when compared to the regulars there.

Let me put it this way....they Rocked the house!!!I When the crowd doesn't leave the dance floor and sings Proud Mary in mass for 10 minutes once the band quits it makes a statement.. And when the band takes pictures of the audience....it says it all. My 86 year old mother is ready to go on tour with them!! My phone has rung for several days and many of the comments were tell me about your band.
However, my favorite moment was on the way to the church. The bus with the bride and all the bridesmaids stopped at the Piedmont Club so my daughter could see everything ...flowers, the rooms, the cake etc. The band was playing and it just was a memorable moment for all of us. The energy was amazing...all the bridesmaids ran to the dance floor and I was worried I wasn't going to get them back on the bus to go to the church!!!

The lead singers, and the female sax ....were awesome....the whole experience was everything we could have asked for!!!The CROWD involvement and the chemistry of the band was electric!!!!

Thank-you ...thank-you!!!

Ascension did a fantastic job!!! They played exactly what we asked them too...which was our main request! So many bands play what they want to play (and we were very specific with the genre of music that we wanted) so we really appreciated this! Also, we picked a song for our first dance that was not on their song list. However, they said it was not a problem and took the time to learn the song for us. I thought this was so nice of them to go the extra mile! I would DEFINITELY recommend Ascension to future customers!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed having Ascension perform at our son's wedding reception. This is the second time we have had them and we have not been disappointed. Everyone at the reception thought they were fantastic and our guests covered a range of ages--from 3 months old to 89 years old. We have always had a pleasant experience booking this group. The attention to details is efficient and the process runs smoothly. The members of the group are fun and delightful. Thank you for making this such a memorable event for us.

The band was amazing! So many people commented that they had never seen that many people on the dance floor at a wedding before. One of my perfect memories I'll cherish forever is at one point we were all dancing and I looked down and I was surrounded by every single little girl that came to the wedding - all 8 girls, aged between 4 and 12, just jamming out in a circle around me! I hope there is a picture of it somewhere! All because of that amazing band. I've already given your contact info to two other people who are friends with my friends who are getting married. They were really professional, they clearly knew what they were doing! THANK YOU!!! for helping us find such a great band! And married life is amazing! Who knew?

My husband and I got married on April 2, 2011. We hired Ascension as our band and they did a phenomenal job! We first heard Ascension at a local jazz bar in Atlanta, GA and due to their high energy and fun music selection, we knew they would be a great fit for our wedding. Tim Anderson of Ascension was extremely proactive and reached out to us multiple times before the event to discuss the logistics and our special requests. Additionally, we talked over our music selections and came up with a playlist for the event. Mr. Anderson and his band were so accommodating and easy to work with. In addition to playing music, they assisted with setting up and playing the music on our iPod during the cocktail hour, formal dinner, and the band's breaks. Ascension took away so much of the stress of planning a wedding. During the event, Ascension did an amazing job keeping our guests dancing and having fun. The band played all of the songs we requested and was the highlight of the event. Many of our guests raved about the band and their musical talents. We highly recommend the use of Ascension for weddings and other special events, and we are so pleased with the service we received. Thank you to Ascension for making our event so memorable.
