*** Winner of the Gigmasters Rising Star Award for Top Steel Drum Band in North America ***
*** Orlando Weekly Magazine Award Winner for Best Reggae Act ***

Based in Orlando, The Caribbean Crew is one of the most frequently hired live bands and wedding bands in Florida. The band is one of the most popular choices when it comes to live music and they are proud to have some of the top musicians and entertainers in the state. The Caribbean Crew provides Steel Drum Music, Calypso Music and Reggae Music for Weddings (over 50 weddings a year), Beach Weddings, Island Weddings, Destination Weddings, Wedding Ceremonies and Rehearsal Dinners. The lead singer can even serve as MC and take care of the formal introductions and announcements.

During the wedding ceremony, our steel drum player can perform traditional wedding music on the steel drums, such as the Bridal Chorus, Canon in D and the Wedding March. 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.

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.

The band is well known for their high-energy and interactive performances. The musicians are all from the islands, giving you an authentic, Caribbean sound. The band is very professional, both in their attire and approach to every event. The Caribbean Crew always arrives early and starts on time! The Caribbean Crew offers a wide variety of original and cover music, from traditional reggae and calypso, to modern day soca and dancehall. They also perform some Top 40 hits, folk songs, Jimmy Buffet selections, traditional and other popular wedding music and wedding songs. The Caribbean Crew can be as small as a solo steel drum player, or as large as a five-piece live band. It all depends on the size of the event and the available budget. All acts include a steel drum player, which is something that your guests will really like.

The Caribbean Crew travels and is willing to perform anywhere in the world! Some of the cities in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina that the band services on a regular basis include: Orlando, Lakeland, Tampa, Palm Harbor, Dunedin, Treasure Island, St. Pete, Clearwater, Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, Sand Key, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Ft. Myers, Bonita Springs, Captiva Island, Naples, Marco Island, Florida Keys, Key West, Key Largo, Islamorada, Key Biscayne, Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Singer Island, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Jupiter, Port St Lucie, Fort Pierce, Vero Beach, Melbourne, Cocoa Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, Palm Coast, St Augustine, Ponte Vedra Beach, Fernandina Beach, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Amelia Island, St George Island, Gainesville,St Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Savannah, Atlanta and Hilton Head.

We LOVED the steel drum player! We got married at Paradise Cove in Orlando and had our guests arrive via boat to the venue. I had the steel drum player play as guests arrived, during our ceremony, and during the cocktail hour. Our guests thought this was icing on the cake having the steel drum music playing as they arrived to this tropical place. Our guests could not stop complimenting us on having him there and how well he played. I asked him a few weeks prior if he could play the James Bond theme song as the groomsmen arrived to the ceremony area via speed boat. He was able to and our guests went wild for it! Overall he was awesome, we loved him, and I would recommend them to any bride and groom looking for that extra little thing that will make their wedding unforgettable. Thank you Caribbean Crew for helping to make our wedding amazing!

THE CARIBBEAN CREW MADE OUR WEDDING DAY PERFECT!

Creig and the Caribbean Crew did an incredible job at our wedding. We had dozens of compliments from our guests on how professional, fun, warm and engaging they all were. It was obvious to everyone that the personal attention, time and care that Creig gave us made our reception a most special and memorable one – one that we will never forget! Our evening was simply perfect!

Creig and his crew rock!!!!!! The cermony music was intimate and the reception music was electric. My husband surely danced the entire ceremony, and he was not alone. Our reception was from 12pm-3pm and Creig and his crew had people on the dance floor so early in the afternoon. Many people complimented there song choice, musical equipment, harmonious voices, and smooth Master of Ceremony execution. They were worth every dime and we would book them again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Creig and Crew!!!!

I spoke with Creig from this company (Cocobean Productions) and he was EXTREMELY helpful. He explained everything he could offer me in great detail, and when I had questions he explained further and made suggestions, too. Everything leading up to my wedding was wonderfully clear, from the explanations to the contract to the return phone calls. THEN my wedding came and it was EVEN BETTER THAN I EXPECTED! I only had one tenor pan player and he knew where to go and what to do. There was no drama, just fabulous music. It was the perfect choice for my outdoor morning wedding at Paradise Cove Orlando...it added SOOOOOO much island flavor and I am really glad I found Creig at Cocobean Productions. Plus his accent is fabulous! yah mon!!!!

This was one of my best decisions of the wedding. Creig's group of talented musicians were perfect for our ceremony. I am from Trinidad and it was important to me that the music of the islands was enjoyed by our guests (and us!!). These guys came out with their steel pan drums and what a fabulous sound eminated throughout the celebration. It was definitely one of the most talked about things at the wedding and a decision I will continue to be proud of. I wish I could experience the whole day again... if only to hear that beautiful caribbean sound again on my special day. I will never forget it.
