On a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest...I would give them 100!!! They were absolutely amazing and were so well liked that we had them stay for another 45 minutes! Every person at the dinner raved about them and praised me for hiring Mello Vibes for our event. When I first started looking for a steel band, I clicked on Mello Vibes and once I heard them, that was it. I wanted no-one else. I purhased their cd and I listen to it constantly. I would be happy to have anyone contact me with any questions or for a fabulous referral. From contacting me in the beginning to saying goodbye at th end of the evening, Mello Vibes was unbelievable.
Thank you so much!!!!

Mellow was amazing! He was a great steel drummer, an amazing reggae musician, and a great DJ! I would definatley refer mellow to anyone who is having a wedding or special event! He made my wedding that much more special... He was great at getting the crowd to be involved and at keeping everyone in a fun dancing mood. Everyone kept asking me "Where did you find this guy? Hes great! I love him!" And if you are on a budget, he is a GREAT one man show!!! Thanks Mellow!

We wanted to share our fantastic experience working with Mello. We hired him to play the steel pan at our beach ceremony and reception in Key Largo. Words really cannot describe how pleased we were with his performance, professionalism and fun, outgoing spirit. The man is talented beyond belief, loves what he does, and never stopped smiling or having a good time. His vibe was contagious and everyone loved him! Mello's genuine spirit and fantastic music will live on in our memories and hearts. His contribution to our special day could not have been better. We give our highest recommendation out to Mello. Peace and love, Edie & Todd Wedekind ~ Danville, CA

I had a destination wedding from Indiana to Dunedin, Florida. The only chance I had to listen to Mello's music was over the internet. I only spoke to him 2 times over the phone before the wedding. All my nerves were gone as soon as I saw him on the beach ready to perform before the ceremony. He did an amazing job! He also performed during the reception on the beach at Honeymoon Island. He had all my friends up dancing for several hours. Everyone was excited to hear something different than the traditional DJ. I would suggest him to anyone. Thanks Mello! You were awesome!

Mello Vibes performed for my wedding reception on November 1, 2008 and we could not have been happier! We were debating between two different performers and we are SOO glad we chose Mello! He was so much fun and our guests really enjoyed him! Everything ran smoothly and he did an awesome job! I would highly recommend him!
Thanks again for a job well done!

Mello was absolutely awesome!! He was very professional, accomodating, and helpful at our wedding. He was a super nice guy and really added something special to the occasion. And best of all, his music was great too! Thanks very much Mello!

Mello is fantastic. Numerous guests marveled at what a talented musician he is. HeÂ´s extremely professional, arriving on time, playing according to our contract, and expertly judging the mood of the crowd to adjust volume and tempo. HeÂ´s also really friendly and personable. Even the Hotel Coordinator for our event was amazed at how great he is to work with and hoped he would return to the hotel in the future. You wonÂ´t go wrong if you hire him.

Mello and his guitar player did an excellent job. Their music has been the highlight of our birthday party, everyone loved it! Without Mello's and Matthew's exceptional entertainment, our party would have been only have the fun! Thank you so much again guys for the outstanding performance! Manfred & Margit

We can talk enough about Mello and his band. We booked them for our rehearsal dinner and it was the best decision we made. He arrived early and was ready to go before our guests even arrived. He was very professional, but even more important, he was such a friendly guy. It has been weeks since the wedding and we are still talking about Mello. We have already had two party guests ask for his contact info. We would book him again in a heartbeat. He is awesome!!
-Brooke N, 4/6/2007, Private Party, Windermere, FL

Mello was fantastic! He was prompt, courteous, and we were very pleased with his professionalism. I would recommend Mello Vibes to anyone looking for a steel drummer for any occasion.

Mello could not have been more perfect. He has a great sense of humor and is very talented. What I also apreciated about him was how much he was willing to work with me and wanted to make sure the music was exactly what we wanted. It was and everyone was raving about him!! Mello has all my respect and I would love to hire him again if I would ever have the chance!
-Jennifer B, 2/22/2008, Wedding, Sanibel, FL
I can't say enough about Mello. Mello kept my guest entertained throughout the four hours he was present. Even though it was a last minute thought of mine to hire a steel pan player, Mello was able to accommodate my entertainment needs. I would highly recommend Mello to friends and family, and plan on hireing him again for my future parties.
-Manuel T, 7/15/2007, Wedding, New Port Richey, FL
Mello provided wonderful music for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We recieved many positive comments from our guests on his performance. He was a wonderful compliment to our special day. He was 100% professional and we 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a wonderfully talented performer.
-Lance A, 10/13/2007, Wedding, Tampa, FL
Mellow was a pleasure to work with. He handled a mixed age group masterfully and was very flexible when we had to change the venue due to rain. His music is fabulous and he is a delightful person. I have hired many performers for professional and personal events and would put him right at the top of the list.
