Joe played for our ceremony and cocktail hour at our May 2, 2015 wedding at Bon Appetit in Dunedin, Florida. He was awesome! Joe was easy to work with, very professional, took care of everything and made it easy for me!
I had a special song that I wanted to be played as I walked down the aisle - Joe learned the song for me! And when he played it, it was perfect - I was so happy!
Having a steel drum sound for our wedding on the water was the "icing on the cake" for our outdoor/ beachy/ ocean vibe we wanted. Our guests all loved the cocktail hour music - sadly I didn't get to hear him play because we were out doing photos, but so many guests raved about it!

I highly recommend Joe Braccio for your wedding day music! THANKS AGAIN, JOE!!!

Joe Braccio went above and beyond any expectations we had prior to our wedding, which in itself, says a lot. We initially inquired about Joe's services to play steel drums at our cocktail hour prior to our wedding reception at The Resort at The Longboat Key Club. Soon after contacting Joe, we came to realize he could offer so much more. Ultimately we chose to have him play Pachelbel - Canon as my bride walked down the "isle" onto the beach for our ceremony. His skill on a guitar was incredible, the music was beautiful, and it couldn't have been more perfect. After we were pronounced man and wife, we initially asked if he could play the "IZ Kamakawiwoʻole" version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." Upon his suggestion, Joe mentioned that his wife, L

Joe was quick with communications, polite and accommodating. He went above & beyond expectations to help make the most of our wedding day. We had just a handful of loved ones with us for a very personal beach ceremony. Joe treated our event with great respect and consideration. He is a pleasure to work with.

Joe was fantastic - he played steel drums before the ceremony and a steel drum version of Pachelbell Canon when I walked in. He also played guitar while a friend of mine sang during the ceremony. And he brought the microphone that the officiant used. His music made the ceremony extra special. We also paid extra to have him be at the rehearsal - totally worth it. Great guy, great musician, great performer.

Joe Braccio is an excellent Steel Drum and Guitar player. His wife is also a very good singer that was a pleasant surprise at our wedding in ST. Pete Beach at the Sirata Beach Resort. Joe played for our Wedding, cocktail hour, and for the reception. His wife sang at the reception and all the guests loved his music and her singing. Joe also brought in a flutist for the wedding ceremony to play that was very good. We couldn't of had a better day!
