It’s not often that our guys (or even Wedding DJs) perform for a wedding on a Tuesday night. However, a couple of Tuesdays ago in Amelia Island, FL was an exception. The bride is fascinated with the steel drum and wanted a live steel drum band that could perform both steel drum music and reggae music. The bride was from Ohio and the groom was from Russia. These are not places that you see too many steel drums. However, the sounds of the steel drum were the perfect touch for the intimate ceremony and the guests partied all night to the steel drum music, reggae music, calypso and soca provided by our steel drum band.
Just goes to show you how special an instrument the steel drum is and how much people truly love Caribbean Music. We are so blessed to be able to share this with our wedding and corporate clients every week.
The Caribbean Crew was recently featured on Gigmasters.com – the nation’s number one online entertainment booking service for weddings, corporate functions, house parties and other special events.
They talked about the several national awards that our steel drum band and steel drum players have received over the years and what has contributed to the band’s success. They also talked about the band’s repertoire of steel drum music, reggae music, calypso music, soca music and Top 40 selections.
Gigmasters draws over 25,000 visitors every day looking to book entertainment for their event. The website has a nationwide database of over 10,000 top-quality client rated entertainment acts and vendors.

We had a booth yesterday at a local Wedding and Bridal show in Orlando. There were wedding DJs, wedding bands and other wedding vendors at the expo. Our steel drum band was too big for the booth, so one of our steel drum players performed a nice mix of wedding ceremony music, reggae music, calypso music, steel drum music and jazz selections on the steel drums. He was a huge hit!
Many brides came up to the booth and said that they had seen steel drum bands on TV, but had never seen a live steel drum player up close. Some brides even took pictures with the steel drums. One of them got a little too close and knocked over a steel drum, but we were able to catch it before it fell. Good thing, as it is quite a process to tune or blend a steel drum when it goes out of tune.
We had many brides that were interested in booking our steel drum band or solo steel drum player to perform at their upcoming beach weddings, destination weddings and weddings right here in Orlando. So if you have a wedding, corporate function or other special event coming up in the near future, give us a call. The sweet sounds of steel drum music, reggae music, calypso and other music from the Caribbean will help make your celebration even more special.
The Caribbean Crew Steel Drum Band finished off 2013 last night with a beautiful wedding at the La Playa Beach Resort in Naples, FL. The sounds of the steel drum music filled the air, along with some great reggae music, calypso music and jazz standards. Thanks to everyone who booked The Caribbean Crew Steel Drum Band and our steel drum players to perform at their weddings, corporate functions, house parties and other special events in 2013. We would like to wish all of you a very Happy New Year and we look forward to performing at more wonderful events in 2014.
