Dave and Joe were GREAT at our beach wedding on Sand Key Beach and for our cocktail hour. I contacted Dave via email and actually never got to talk to him in person with how busy we were the day of!! We got nothing but amazing compliments on how great they sounded. We had Dave on the steel drum and Joe on the guitar. It was perfect for our beach wedding. They were very professional and so easy to work with. I definitely recommend them!!

Dave did such a great job with our ceremony music! It added such a cool touch to our beach wedding to have him playing traditional wedding music on a steel pan drum! He really added a tropical vibe to the whole ceremony, and my guests commented on how good he was. He also plays for the Tampa Bay Steel Drum Orchestra by the way! He also did our cocktail hour music, though we were out taking pictures so we didn't get to enjoy it. I wish I had hired him to do the dinner music as well so I could have heard him play some more! He was also very responsive to e-mail before the wedding. And he was a great value, the best deal I found! Highly recommend!

We had the Caladesi Steel Band play at our daughters wedding at the Don Cesar last weekend and it was just beautiful!!! They played at the rehearsal which was a beach themed party, the ceremony and again at the cocktail hour. They added just the touch that we wanted at the wedding and they were so great with our guests. I heard many comments about how good they were and they truly added the "beach flavor" my daughter wanted to have at her wedding! They spent a lot of time with our family and guests and I think we could tell that they enjoyed themselves as well and that was really important to us as well! I felt they were very reasonable too for as much as they played over the course of the two days! They will always part of the memories made on my daughter and new son-in-law's big day!!! Thanks Dave for everything!

Dave from Caladesi Steel Drums provided the most gorgeous and fun cocktail hour music for our wedding. We really wanted our guests to feel relaxed and like they could let their hair down a bit, so we wanted to move away from our more classical string quartet during the ceremony and into something a bit more Floridian.

The music from Caladesi Steel Drums was just perfect and really set the tone. Dave made the whole thing so much fun and some of our guests even got to try to play. It was a blast to have them at the wedding and I would highly recommend working with them. If you are looking for something a bit different but still beautiful Caladesi Steel Drums are the way to go.

My husband and I hired Dave from Caladesi Steel Band to perform at our Ceremony and Cocktail Hour at Isla Del Sol Yacht & Country Club on Saturday, March 15, 2014. He was incredibly professional to work with - especially with all of our correspondence being via email since we live in Orlando, FL. He was very responsive throughout and on the day of our Wedding, was on time and performed beautifully. It was such a special and unique touch to have the steel drums and not only did my husband and I appreciate it (the music was beautiful) - but so did our guests. I would highly recommend hiring the Caladesi Steel Band for your Wedding - you won't regret it.
