Caribbean vibe steal drum band did such an amazing job! They came right on time with enough time to set up for my cocktail hour, everything was perfect. Would definitely use again for any party I have. Paired perfectly with my cigar roller!
Perfect for our event.
Band was great and accommodating
Thank you all so much for making our wedding amazing. They were early, professional but personable and engaged with our entire 60 ppl party. We will definitely have them at a future party as will some of our friends. We could not have been more pleased!!
Oh my goodness these guys sounded amazing. I missed cocktail hour while taking pictures but I heard how awesome they sounded. They even allowed my nephew to play a little on the steel pan, and that was a precious moment since my late father bought him a steel pan before he passed. It was absolutely perfect and my guests enjoyed!!
Every one commented on how great they were.
Donald was a great player and our guests really enjoyed his music!
The musicians assigned to my event arrived 30 plus minutes late and rushed to set up, as we had a schedule and an arrival time for the guest of honor's arrival. They were not able to play "pomp and circumstance" as I had requested during the booking. They seem to not have any knowledge of the music at all, or of my request. They went on to play quite well and switched to a more rapid calypso style of music at my request half hour or so before they were due to leave, which was another misunderstanding. They attempted to leave at the original time of 6:30 and I had to remind them they arrived and started LATE!!! Upon booking I was assured, musicians would arrive early to set up, commence playing promptly at 3:30 to 6:30. They played approximately 4:30 to 7:00. They took up part of the playing time to set up!!! (Utterly Absurd!!!) At the end of the time, I asked them to play one additional song which they declined, explaining they had already started to disconnect their equipment. I spent a good amount of money because I expected quality, punctuality and professionalism. They were pleasant for the most part and the guest enjoyed the music; however, I was underwhelmed because the sequence of events was off! I wanted the element of grand surprise for my son's entrance to his surprise graduation party and it was a complete bust!!! They started to play maybe 5-7 minutes after his arrival. I am getting more and more infuriated as I am writing this review because I am reliving the MEDIOCRE but EXPENSIVE experience all over again!!! I have had other vendors to my events and have NEVER experienced such DISAPOINTMENT!

Caribbean Vibe Steel Drum Band played at our house when we got married. They did a great job. Easy on our end. They came and set up and played. Very likeable. Got great feedback from our crowd.
I booked this group for my wedding a year ago. Since then I have had multiple repeated conversations with the band leader, emphasizing certain details, and a month before the wedding he still was unclear about them. He didn’t even understand that it was for a wedding. He even thought that the band was unavailable that day because they were booked to a different event.
Come day of the wedding (yesterday), the band leader was not even present. The band itself arrived late, and did not know how to operate their own PA system. They spent over an hour trying to hook up a tangle of wires, while my 120 guests stood by awkwardly watching and waiting.
After they played some music from a smart phone (why am I paying $2675 for a steel drum band when they just play music from a phone?), it was time for the ceremony to begin. They did not have the song the bride requested to walk down the aisle. So they tried to download it…again, to a smart phone. And then they attempted to hold a microphone to the phone to pick up the sound.
The few numbers that the band actually played from their instruments did come out nicely, but they needed prompting and cueing to begin playing every single time. As a professional, you are required to understand when to begin playing immediately during transitions; after a speech, after the ceremony ends, during meal times, etc. This band knew none of these things and there were several long awkward silences.
At times the band just played songs from a phone or laptop, while they drank my beer and ate my food (they never obtained permission to do this). Why did I pay $2675 just to have someone play music from a phone?
I would never recommend such an unprofessional and amateur group to any venue, large or small.
Arrived early, seamlessly setup, played beautiful music exactly to the tastes of an older crowd, and then insisted on staying a little longer and playing extra tunes for us! Was amazing. Finally had to shoo them off the stage, since they were having so much fun playing for us. But they had another gig somewhere else and I had some high school students waiting to get on stage to perform. Even though the students were more than happy to continue hearing from Caribbean Vibe, we playfully changed out the sets. It was an incredibly joyous and fun experience! We all had fun.
I got the one man and performed by Mike. He was exceptional. He played great music and was also very professional. Mike is an exceptional person with rich experience and truly loves what he does and it shows through his music and kind, gentle character. I would definitely hire him again. This was for a small gathering at my house.
Added a fun vibe to our party
The Caribbean Vibe Steel Drum Band performed as advertised without a doubt. The band’s music was the critical element required to push our employee event over the top. I believe that the Caribbean Vibe Steel Drum Band was able to make everyone feel like they were on a Caribbean Island down by the beach with their favorite drink and a light breeze. I can’t wait to schedule another event that I can use The Caribbean Vibe Steel Drum Band.
We enjoyed and had a great time with them!
Love the couple, they are so friendly and approachable and very nice people!
We hired Caribbean Vibe for an outdoor grand opening event and they were absolutely fantastic! When our ribbon cutting ceremony took a touch longer than expected they made sure to stay on and still give a great, full performance. I would absolutely work with them again and you should too!
These guys gave us just what we needed…island vibe so everyone could forget about the troubles in the world for a few hours. They brought with them humid hot island temperatures but it all made perfect sense! The sound was great and everyone had only compliments about the band. Would use them again in a heartbeat. ~elena
Response from Caribbean Vibe Steel Drum Band:
We love bringing the fun festive steel drum sounds of the Islands to your special event!😎🌴
The booking process was so easy and they were very polite and efficient. We had the Caribbean Vibe band for a small cocktail party after a few days of offsite work planning and everyone LOVED it. Just what they needed after 3 days of hard focus work.
They kept our guests entertained, had a great attitude and were very talented. Anyone who can get assisted living residents dancing is playing good music!
We had a blast! Everyone at our community was either singing and/or dancing!
We loved every second of the performance.
Very nice guys and was able to cut on and off when we needed to.
