Papa Sol brought it! We are not a tame group at all and Papa Sol not only kept up with us, they wore us out! Thanks for making their wedding so great!

-Cheri S.-



Papa Sol was beyond amazing for our wedding! We appreciate everything that they did that night. I thought the song "Shout" and the way they lead up to it was the best. They hype was great! Shyrod was very helpful with all the preparations and song list process as well. We had a fabulous time and have heard nothing, but wonderful things from the guests! Thank you again for all your help

-Perry O.-



I don't know where to begin thanking y'all. Last night was the best night of my life! I danced, laughed, and cried tears of joy. Thank you for such an incredible evening. The music and your stage presence was out of this world! You and your band made the evening perfect! Thank you for making me feel like a princess, a bride. They kindly and graciously answered all of my 1 million questions and requests. I HIGHLY recommend this band. Thank you again.

-Cameron A.-



You all were SPECTACULAR last night!!! EVERY person there came to Dallas and I to tell us that y’all were the best band they’ve ever seen or heard! Without a question the best! Y’all made a very special night for us an extraordinary night. I can’t sing your praises enough. Top to bottom y’all were SPECTACULAR!! Working with ECE was a breeze! Thanks again and you all carry our highest recommendation! Please extend our gratitude to the other band members! Also please thank the brass boys for the New Orleans flare!! Hope you all have a blessed New Year!

I cannot thank-you enough for the amazing job you and your talented band did Saturday night at Michelle and Hunter’s wedding. I had multiple guests text me to get info on y’all. At one point during the evening I went back to my seat to take a break. I looked at the dance floor and it was packed with arms flying and everyone having the time of their lives. THANK-YOU, that was exactly what I had hoped for and you exceeded my expectations. Please know I will refer Papa Sol any chance I get!!!




Shyrod, I just wanted to send a quick note saying thank you for playing our wedding last night. You guys were incredible!! You really made our night even more special. You guys are the one comment that people keep texting me about today. I've gotten several comments already about how great the band was. In fact the getaway driver even made comments on how good the band was. Anyway we were all blown away! Thanks again.

We all had a wonderful time. The guests all loved the band and my family all loves Shyrod. We hope to do a party in the fall and Papa Sol will be our first choice. I felt I was given special and outstanding performance. The band worked really hard to please and all is appreciated. My best to Papa Sol

I do not have enough nice things to say about Papa Sol. They were exactly what we envisioned and did an amazing job. Our wedding was a perfect dance party. Thank you so much!




We want to again thank and salute Shyrod , Papa Sol and you for the outstanding performance on Saturday night at Jennifer’s wedding. They were absolutely fabulous. Their energy was unmatched. The music quality even better. We have received countless compliments about Shyrod and his group. We truly enjoyed working with you and Shyrod and thank you all again for a memorable evening. 




They were awesome in every way. Unbelievable energy. We started late but they were great and stayed late.

Thank you for all of your help.




Papa Sol played at my wedding at The Estate in Buckhead and they were awesome! They kept everyone on the dance floor having a blast the entire wedding! My bridesmaids and groomsmen loved them! And I have received so many compliments about the band because they were so amazing! As a bride you want everyone to have fun the entire wedding and Papa Sol made that possible! I would recommend them to all of my friends and would book them again in a heartbeat!




Barry - the band was absolutely phenomenal!!  They were professional, energetic, engaging, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Wedding Reception


Thank you so much for providing us with the best band ever for Whitney's wedding last weekend. Everyone raved about Papa Sol and how great they were. 

They played all our favorite songs and kept up the enthusiasm all night long. We all danced our hearts out and Whitney and Daniel will always remember the wonderful Band at their wedding. 

Thank you for making the reception a very special and fun evening.

Papa Sol was amazing. I had the time of my life and they were awesome. I would recommend them to anyone! Thanks for everything you did to make it a success!

Thank you again!


Wedding Planner


I'm still blown away by your performance, Shyrod. You guys were better than perfect.

You exceeded my expectations, and let me tell you, that is not easy to do. From the way you played our first dance song to the smooth Jazz renditions you did early in the night, your emcee work and announcements, the great rhythm, energy and musicianship, the showmanship of everyone in the band and your own personal energy, you gave us a memory to last a lifetime. You folks are incredibly versatile, great looking and terrific showpeople. You made me want to SHOUT!, and you did, brother!

You know, as I told you, one of the concerns I had going in was that everyone would expect me, as a musician, to pick a great band with a great keyboard player. Well, I exceeded my own expectations on both counts. And my beautiful wife Elisa said you were perfect for our wedding, too. So God bless you folks for putting your heart and soul in your work, because it SHOWS.

Any time you want a recommendation, I can give you a glowing one!




Papa Sol was fantastic! And wonderful people too. Shyrod is a terrific showman and MC. They did a great job of our dance song. They are extremely versatile. We were thrilled. Thanks!




You hit the nail on the head. Shyrod and his gang brought the house down. What a wonderful guy and what a wonderful band. I told him that while he needed a new video that he (and you) could feel free to use me as a reference anytime. I have received dozens of comments akin to "the band rocked!!!", "amazing", "awesome", "A++++ Band".

I cannot thank you enough.

Just a note to say thanks. You guys were absolutely awesome. You have my heartiest praise and deepest gratitude.

I hope we can do it again sometime.

Best regards,


Wedding Reception


I am Cathy C., mother of the bride of the wedding that Papa Sol played for on June 19th in Thibodaux, LA. I just want to say "thank you so very much" for the absolute best band performance of any wedding I've ever attended! You guys were just fantastic - totally awesome! Everyone had the BEST TIME. It was so great how you had the whole audience involved, and allowed any/all of the wedding party and guests to participate. I have heard over and over again how great the band was! Michael and Brittany had the time of their lives with you on the most special day of their lives, and they have repeated this to me numerous times, even now while they are on their honeymoon. In talking with you, you all were such a pleasure to work with, so professional, patient, and absolute gentlemen/lady, while always making sure that the audience was completely entertained by your MOST TALENTED group of singers and musicians. Again, I cannot thank you enough for doing all you did to make this the most special event for my daughter and son-in-law. Please pass on my gratitude and praises to all the members of the band.


Mother of the Bride


Papa Sol was FABULOUS! They were so professional and set up at 5:00. They worked the crowd soooo well! Young and old loved them. We loved that they mixed Motown up with modern music. We just couldn't be more pleased with this group. We highly recommend them and want them again next year. I'll call you when we set a date. It was just a great night, and it was because they were such hard workers and talented performers. Thanks for everything!




They were GREAT!!!!!! Hopefully we can get them for next year.

Papa Sol was great! We have had nothing but rave reviews about them. They entertained everyone and got people on stage to make fools of themselves, which was the best form of entertainment.

-Kyle R. G.-



They did a fantastic job!!! I have heard so many people talking about how great the band was. We had a few children in the wedding, and they got up on stage to dance; the band members were so wonderful and patient with them. One of my bridesmaids is even trying to get them for her wedding next August in Savannah. Thanks so much!

Shyrod and Rick, Just wanted to thank you for the great job that you did at our daughter's wedding last Saturday night. We've been overwhelmed with compliments about how great the band was and how much fun you were. I've already given your name to someone who is interested in using you in the future. Not only was the band fun but they conducted themselves as professionals in every way. Thank you,

-Donald & Terri -

Parents of the Bride


The wedding this past weekend was FABULOUS -- Papa Sol was nothing short of incredible. The crowd of 325 went from the ages of 2 years to 88 years and EVERYONE had fun dancing. They are high energy, engaging with the crowd, happy, and ready to do whatever their client wants to make their event a success. Shyrod is professional; he was on time and did everything he said he would do for our daughter's wedding. The music was appropriate for the audience and was not too loud as so often one finds at weddings or dances. I would be honored to be a reference for anyone considering Papa Sol -- they have my unequivocal endorsement. I will be 50 individuals told me alone that they were the best dance band they had seen -- they MADE Kate and Sandy's wedding. Thank Shyrod for us all

I just wanted to write a quick note to tell you how FABULOUS Papa Sol was at our wedding on Kiawah Island! I was so impressed with their sheer presence and of course the outstanding singing! My entire reception was dancing, singing and having a ball the entire time! They allowed everyone to get on stage, sing and dance with them, including me, the bride! Nothing will make me smile in the years to come, more than the pictures of my friends and family dancing like crazy. In fact, my cousin is getting married in Hilton Head in June and is considering hiring them to play at her wedding as well! Thanks again for everything!

Papa Sol was AMAZING!!! They are all our guest are talking about. We had high expectations because we have seen them perform once before, but they far exceeded them! They made our wedding reception unforgettable! Please pass our appreciation on to the band.

-Blair Capallo-



I am embarrassed to just finally be writing you both but I just wanted to let you know just how thrilled we were with Papa Sol for our wedding on December 8th. 

I have had multiple (like 50+) people ask me who was our band and tell me how much they loved you! I have even had several (both young and old) complaining about the bruises on their own hands from the tambourine!!! A large, fun time was had by ALL!!

I have just gotten the pictures back and have loved looking through them seeing all of the crowd interaction and dancing by all.

PapaSol was THE PERFECT wedding band for us! I loved having them even more because they aren't the normal "go to" Mississippi wedding band so it was fun livening up the party for everyone!

Thank you again for everything! Please thank each and every one of the band members from not only me but my family and all that attended our wedding.

Happy Friday to you both!




So sorry for the delay in my response.....Papa Sol was absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!! Worth every's all my guests could talk about during and afterwards still. I didn't want it to end b/c I've never enjoyed a band so much. Rarely do see guests go up the band to shake their hands afterwards like they did at our wedding. Just amazing!!!! Thank you for the recommendation and for helping me book them which was the best decision I ever made!





Papa Sol was awesome! Not only were they a fantastic band that totally rocked the house and kept everyone on the dance floor, but they were respectful and gracious to everyone they interacted with. Shyrod was responsive and wonderful to work with. Please feel free to use me or my parents as a reference in the future - we would happily recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much for your help with everything!


Wedding Client


Thanks for everything! I had a wonderful weekend and so did my family, new husband, and all of our guests. Papa Sol was the highlight of the reception - they were the perfect mixture of total class, as well as getting people to "let loose". I am so thankful to have had them as a part of the weekend, and to have worked with you. I appreciate all you did to get my questions answered and to get us all set up.

I will certainly recommend EastCoast, you, and Papa Sol whenever possible. Thank you again!




Papa Sol was absolutely fantastic and I apologize for not telling you that much sooner! As you might remember, it ended up pouring down rain all day that day, even though the day before they had predicted a "zero percent" chance of rain and consequently the "rain plan" tents had been cancelled! The bride and groom were devastated but determined to have a good time! They got married outside in the rain. Papa Sol was kind enough to agree to move into the house (we were supposed to be outside in the back yard) and my sister was even kinder to allow us to move all the furniture in her house! Papa Sol was fantastic, even though my son, the groom, was determined to become a singing member of the band! Everyone had a fantastic time, it was a great party, and there were probably over 200 people still there at 11:00 pm! Please pass my appreciation on to the band members and tell them I would be happy to give a testimony for them any time! It was great doing business with you as well.

Thanks for everything!
