Incredible!!! I heard Fantasy for the first time back in 2014 and ever since then I knew I wanted them to play for my wedding reception. Once I secured my wedding date, I immediately contacted East Coast Entertainment to book Fantasy! They played beautiful background music during our dinner and we had a completely packed dance floor all night. They are amazing at keeping the crowd into the music for their whole performance. We couldn't be happier that we chose Fantasy and Steve is wonderful to work with!! Our guests will never forget our wedding reception and we owe that to Fantasy! Thank you guys so much for being such a huge part in making our wedding the best day of our lives and making it an unforgettable night!

I cannot express how much we enjoyed the Fantasy Band. They are always amazing and our faculty and staff were thrilled to have them return to play for the 2nd Annual Duke Eye Ball. Please give Barry my sincere appreciation for always delivering exceptional service in filling our entertainment request. We hope to book the Fantasy Band for the 2019 Eye Ball.

For the second time, Fantasy did not disappoint! We received so many compliments about Fantasy last year, that there was no doubt in my mind I would be booking them for our Gala again this year. And I am so pleased I did, because once again they delivered a great performance and had my crowd dancing throughout the evening. Steve and his team are such a pleasure to work with, and incredibly accommodating. Thank you Fantasy for everything, hope to work with you all again soon! Thanks

We had the most amazing experience with Fantasy! They got everyone on the dance floor immediately, took requests, and interacted so well with the crowd. No one wanted to leave! We couldn’t be more thrilled that they were available and that we hired them. They even contacted us a few days before the wedding to talk over details. We were super impressed and will definitely recommend them to our friends in the future! Thanks also to you for all your help with the logistics! We appreciate your efficient and responsive communication and how easy the process was. Happy 2018 to you and your family!

So many people have told me that you all were one of the best bands they've ever heard. Thank you for making our reception so much fun! I'm pretty sure the majority of guests didn't leave the dance floor the whole time. We are so grateful you all played at our wedding!

Fantasy was, hands down, the best band I have worked with and seen perform! I cannot say enough amazing things about this group; Steve was incredibly professional to work with, they engaged our guests throughout the evening, and their voices and music was spot on. My guests did not want them to stop, I’m sure they would have had them play until the wee hours of the morning if it had been an option. I received compliment after compliment about Fantasy, and we will be booking them for future events, without a doubt. A huge thank you to Steve and the rest of the group for making our Gala the best one yet! Thanks Barry, great recommendation! I will definitely be booking Fantasy again.

The band was FANTASTIC.

I knew they would be, but they really just made the whole wedding. All of the band members were so nice and really got the dance floor going. They even let my dad play the drums for "Brick House" ! It was probably the highlight of my night, besides the whole getting married part:) anyways, I will be recommending them to anyone who is looking for a band. They were truly awesome, and easy to work with!

I wanted to let you know Fantasy was one of the best bands we have ever had. They did a beautiful job of keeping the crowd at the dinner,  and the dance floor was full the entire event. At the end of the night a dozen people came by to tell me they want Fantasy back next year. I heard it from more people at the breakfast on Sunday morning.

--Taken from a hand-written note on CHCC stationary--

"I just wanted to write and let you know how pleased we were with Fantasy this past weekend! So many of our members stopped to tell me how great the band was - several even went on to say that it was the best band we have ever had at CHCC. I have been here for 8 years and can say without hesitation that I agree, Fantasy was the best we have seen. Steve was so great to work with; he was very professional, kept me in the loop for his plan for the night and read the crowd well. They are without a doubt at the top of our wishlist for future events! Please let them know again how much we appreciate their work and that we are eager to have them back!"

Hope you are doing well also, The Fantasy Band done exceptional. We have had them for Three years in a row and I have never booked a band more than one time since I have been president. But I listen to the social media on Facebook and the festival web site and they have requested for them to come back for the last Three years. I have to say they are one of the best entertainers I have ever had to work with. Steve and the group are always the most polite and respectful band members I have ever worked with since I’ve been involved in festivals. I have always enjoyed having them at our festival, they bring enthusiasm and bond with the crowd to make it an awesome time. I’ve already had feedback that people would like to have them back again, so I will bring it to the board again this year to see if we can bring them back again. Just let them know we believe they are the best entertainer’s in the industry and I will support them in anyway possible.

Doug, just wanted to send you a note to let you know how much everyone enjoyed the performance put on by Fantasy at my daughter’s wedding reception last Sat.  They did a great job and kept our guests entertained right up to the end of the reception.  I can still hear the crowd chanting "Just one more" at the end. Thanks again for arranging for Fantasy to be with us. I am certain that others from the Georgetown area will be wanting to book them in the future.

I just wanted to thank you ONE LAST TIME for making our wedding reception truly unbelievable! Our guests are still talking about the fun they had--I mean, calling us, texting us, posting on facebook! You all really know how to make an event memorable, and I just want you to know how much that means to us all. We are trying to come up with reasons to have you all continue to be in our lives every few years, since the upcoming wedding you will play for my sister is the last wedding we will have! (we will think of something!!) I even had guests of mine ask if they can be invited to my sister's wedding--just to hear you all again! Haha!

So, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for being the best wedding band of all time!!! We had a blast with Fantasy at the Carolina Inn. You truly made the reception a party, and got all of our guests on the dance floor (which was what Robert and I both wanted!) Robert loved singing with you guys during shout, and I loved how y'all could come out onto the dance floor as well. The whole experience was better than I could have ever imagined. In short: you guys ROCK.
Thank you thank you thank you!

At Jenny's wedding reception on August 24th we had an absolutely great time, in large part to Steve and the band. You guys did a great job engaging the crowd and I know there were some folks there who never sat down all night! The best I can remember you only took 1 short break all night. People I run into are still talking about what a great night it was. It is a night that Jenny and Marshall as well as Cathy and I will never forget! Thanks for a great, great night.

The Fantasy Band was great! They played for our son's (Wilson) rehearsal dinner after-party on August 16; your recommendation of them was perfect. They were professionals in every respect, and I know everyone enjoyed their performance. They even allowed an old "high school drummer" - me - to sit in with the band for a couple of songs; that was definitely a highlight for me! I can't thank enough you and the Fantasy Band. I definitely will consider and recommend you, EastCoast and Fantasy for any future entertainment needs.

A BIG thank you to all the members of the Fantasy Band for providing an absolutely fantastic performance at Lizzie and Paul's wedding on Saturday. You guys are the professionals and letting you do what you do without the FOB getting too involved was the right advice. Gene, you had guests doing the Soul Train Review even though it was 90 degrees in the ballroom. You guys and gal never lost the energy in the room. I knew the reception was going to be perfect when you invited Lizzie and Paul to participate in your band prayer before their first dance. I had a sense of calm from that moment on. I may have even received a little Divine intervention to sing "Soul Man" almost on key! The bride, groom, entire wedding party and multiple guests all commented on how good the band was. We had a blast.

Thanks so much for arranging for The Galaxy to have Fantasy for our winter formal!!!!!!!

There were FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!! Everyone there had a wonderful time.

Steve was a joy to work with and so flexible with our schedule. They were quite a hit with our guests.

Everyone danced throughout the evening. And, yes, I danced to "Carolina Girls" wearing my full length Carolina Blue fur coat. Bought it in Argentina and this was the perfect occasion.

I attended Chris's surprise 50th birthday party this past Sunday night and just wanted you to know we had a blast. The band Fantasy was amazing!! They worked the party all night long and involved Chris in so much of the entertainment. This made the music and getting to enjoy his special night so much better. Chris is my youngest brother and our father who is now 83 and in a wheelchair. I wheeled him out onto the floor when they sang "Your My Brown Eyed Girl" (yes I have brown eyes) and we danced and the band applauded him. What a special moment for him and our family. Chris's party was one to remember thanks to Fantasy!

We were very pleased to have had the band "Fantasy" play at my daughter Joelle's wedding over the Memorial Day weekend. The band members we professional in every respect and their music "lit up" the event. They played with so much energy that it poured from the bandstand all over our guests causing them to dance, dance, dance the night away. I have attended many weddings and events where the musicians were capable however they did not engage the audience. This was NOT the case with "Fantasy"! Steve and his crew made our event very special. I received many compliments from our guests on the band's behalf regarding how wonderful they played and how much fun they were. Many thanks to the very talented band for playing with such vitality, soul and, when appropriate, humor!

Fantasy was absolutely the best!!!!. These guys were so personable and really are down to earth people. They know how to relate to everyone and get people involved to have a good time. The very first song they played, my 2 yr old niece was on the dance floor and Steve walked out with his guitar and played and danced with her - very special. We had a wonderful evening and thanks to Fantasy, it will be one we will always remember!

Fantasy was everything we had bargained for. They showed up in plenty of time and were very pressional and easy to work with.

They are great musicians and all of the wedding party loved their music. They took the minimum number of breaks and kept the party going. They got out in the middle of the dance floor and interacted with our guests. There was high energy felt by everyone until the end.

We definitely got our money's worth and we would hire then in a heartbeat for our next's daughter's wedding.

Thank you so much for recommending Fantasy Band for our wedding. We are still hearing rave reviews about the music and there was not an empty spot on the dance floor the whole night! We could not be more pleased with their performance and would recommend them to anyone looking for a great show! The entire band was so friendly and they looked as if they were having as much fun as we were! Their sound was outstanding, the music selection was huge and they didn't take long breaks during the reception. We appreciate your recommendation and thank you for the memorable experience that Fantasy Band has created for myself and my husband.
