About

ecsLogoWelcome to East Coast Stroke’s page. East Coast Stroke is an 11 piece horn based band from the Hagerstown, Maryland area.

East Coast Stroke was founded by 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.

East Coast Stroke (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. In January of 2014, ECS welcomed aboard two new vocalists that will compliment the band’s tight sound (Sheryl Keefauver, and Kurkey Mason).

Be sure to check this site out from time to time for updated photos, merchandise, booking information, appearance dates, band member bios, and recorded selections.

Thank you for taking the time to view ECS’s page. It is the band’s hope and desire to bring an electrifying horn driven sound to more of the public, while at the same time promoting live music to the communities we perform in.
