This band was wonderful to work with through the whole process. The performance was great for dancing and they were playful with the crown. Great set list. Very efficient with set up and tear down, and so helpful that they could run their sound for the night. 5 stars!

My name is Olivia Hasty and my husband and I were honored to have Fantasy preform at our December 11th wedding. Long story short- Fantasy was absolutely INCREDIBLE! They got all of our guests out onto the dance floor and kept them dancing all night long! Fantasy played the perfect mix of songs that our guests knew and loved. In the middle of the reception I had a last minute song request that I had not mentioned to Fantasy in advance (Mustang Sally, which is my mom's name). I asked if they could play the song and goodness did they deliver! I appreciate Fantasy's flexibility as this resulted in such a fun surprise to my mom. Everyone also loved how engaging Fantasy was. They came into the crowd, coordinated dance lines, had guests singing into their microphones, and even brought the bridal party up onto the stage! Our guests had such a great time dancing that they kicked off their shoes (including the MOB, MOG, and myself)! I also want to emphasize how talented the members of Fantasy are. They have incredible voices and are masters on their instruments. It is easy to see that Fantasy is a group of professional artists who know what they're doing. In addition to their music and performance factor, Fantasy also expertly emcee'd our reception- from introducing me and John into the reception, playing our first dance and parent dance songs, the cake cutting, the prayer before dinner, our last dance song, and so much more. They provided smooth transitions throughout the evening and had zero pauses/delays. Fantasy also ensured that the audio was clear and that the volume was perfect. From start to finish my experience with ECE and Fantasy was easy and very positive. My advice- stop your band search and pick Fantasy. You will not regret it!

I can not begin to describe to you how appreciative we are to you and you’re services. Thank you so much for all of your help in making our day so fun and special for us. We were so glad you helped us pick the BEST band for our wedding. The whole band Fantasy and Steve, made our wedding a memorable one. They interacted with the crowd, got everyone to dance, and made our wedding so much fun! It rained on our big day and we had pivot and make adjustments, and they rolled with every punch! They even took a shorter break cause we had delayed due to weather and kept the party going! We are so appreciative of their flexibility, and loved every minute of the night! Please let any other couple know that if they want a band for their wedding—Fantasy should be their top choice🤗

The band was a great improvement over last year's band. Member feedback was very positive and we are already in the works in seeing which event we can have them back too. Great Job I hope to see the Fantasy Band back at BRCC very soon.

Fantasy rocked the house for our Alive After Five! They got everyone on the dance floor immediately, took requests and interacted with the crowd so well. No one wanted to leave! We had tons of requests to bring them back to our amphitheater - DURING the event! Our guests already wanted to see them again and they hadn't even finished their set yet. Cannot recommend this group more!

They were AMAZING! Steve was very personable; the lead singer was awesome and the whole band was so professional! Their song selection was great! They played all the right songs and got old and young out on the dance floor! Everything they did was on-point and super high-energy! We danced all night! Their sound system was great, they were on-time and they accommodated us 110%! We were so pleased and everyone absolutely loved them! It was such a great party that I had to throw my shoes away at the end because they didn't hold up to all my dancing! So, so, happy and I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about them!


Jun 01, 2019

Cannot thank all of you enough for the great music and entertainment you provided for our daughter's wedding reception. It exceeded expectations and the crowd loved every minute of it. For our family and our love of good music, having great, live music was the most important aspect of the reception and top priority. Fantasy did not disappoint! Thanks for providing us with lasting memories of such a fun night with friends and family!

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!

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!

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.

Dear Steve and the Fantasy Band What an amazing night!!!! I cannot begin to express my appreciation for such a wonderful evening.

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! 


Oct 02, 2016

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.

"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!

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 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.
