Cocobean books The Caribbean Crew Steel Drum Band and our solo steel drum players for over 50 weddings a year. The Caribbean Crew is one of the most frequently hired wedding bands in Florida. We can provide wedding entertainment in the form of Steel Drum Music, Caribbean Music, Island Music, Calypso Music, Reggae Music and Soca Music. We do all types of weddings, including beach weddings, island weddings, destination weddings, gay and lesbian weddings and same-sex marriages.
Our steel drum players can perform for wedding ceremonies and the cocktail hour. During the wedding ceremony, the steel drum player can perform traditional wedding music on the steel drums, such as the Bridal Chorus, Canon in D and the Wedding March. Please check out the Wedding Ceremony videos above and below, showcasing traditional ceremony music performed on the steel drum. If you prefer something non-traditional, the steel pan player can perform a nice reggae selection for the processional and an upbeat calypso selection for the recessional. For outdoor weddings, we ask that (if possible) the steel drum player set up under a covered or shaded area. The reason for this is to protect the instrument. If the steel drum is exposed to the elements (sunlight and rain) for too long, it can go out of tune. This is why our steel drum players have their steel drums tuned once or twice a year by an expert steel pan tuner.
If you are looking for a tropical theme throughout the wedding, you can hire The Caribbean Crew Steel Drum Band to perform Caribbean Party Music for the wedding reception. The lead singer can even serve as MC and take care of the formal introductions and announcements. The band and solo steel drum players are also popular choices for rehearsal dinners.
Prior to the wedding, we will contact you for all the details and we will assist you in completing the itinerary for the wedding ceremony and wedding reception. You will find this particularly helpful if you have not hired a wedding planner. The band or entertainer will have a print out of the itinerary with every single detail. This will ensure a smooth transition from start to finish.
We generally book weddings up to 18 months in advance. All we need is a 50% deposit and a signed contract to reserve our steel drum band or steel drum players. The balance is due 2 weeks before the wedding date (standard with most wedding vendors). We accept corporate checks, personal checks, cash and all major credit cards.
