East Coast Stroke is a 12 piece horn based band from the Hagerstown, Maryland area.
East Coast Stroke (ECS) was founded by the band leader, Kurt Nigh. As a brass player, and long time admirer of horn-based soul, funk, and R&B bands, it was always a desire of his to put one together himself. ECS started back in 2010 as a Tower of Power Tribute band, but has now broadened their repertoire to include a wider range of music. With the addition of vocalists Sheryl Keefauver an Kurkey Mason, ECS is now more soul and funk driven than ever!

Performing across the tri-state area, ECS continues to impress audiences with their excellent level of musicianship and huge sound. Playing music of groups from the 60's up to today, they have put together a sound that will excite you now, while remaining steeped in the sounds of bands from the past.
