We flew up The Caribbean Crew to play at our wedding on August 8, 2008 in Denver, Colorado. They were absolutely AMAZING! Chesley played the steel drum at our ceremony and then Creig and Chesley rocked our reception!! They literally had EVERYONE out of their seats up and dancing! Even our photographer and the hotel staff were up dancing!! We've received SO MANY compliments about them - none of our friends/families had ever experienced anything like that before and they LOVED IT!! The Caribbean Crew were exceedingly professional - very organized, very clear and prompt in all communications and even arrived early to our event! Plus, they are the nicest guys ever!

The Caribbean Crew played at our wedding on June 17, 2006 in Hilton Head, SC. They were outstanding! They had everyone up and dancing and having a great time. Even the catering staff and bartenders were dancing! We've received rave reviews from our guests as well. The Caribbean Crew set the perfect tone for our outdoor wedding by the sea and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun band with a great island groove. Thanks again.

We hired the Caribbean Crew for our wedding in St Georges Island and I could not be happier with our choice. Not only did they provide awesome entertainment, they were incredibly professional at every turn. I especially enjoyed that they took requests. They were great with the crowd, and overall just a lot of fun. Words from my mom: I wanted to THANK YOU!!!! I think "you guys" now have a cult following on St. George Island. The performance at our daughter's wedding was WONDERFUL! The music appealed to everyone and our crowd included guests from age 2 to age 90! You are fabulous! (I promise this is an unsolicited testimony!)

We were very pleased with the professionalism and talent that the Caribbean Crew brought to our wedding at Paradise Cove. They sounded great and the our guests really enjoyed them. I would recommend their service for any event.

We were extremely pleased with the Caribbean Crew's performance and professionalism at our wedding. Many of our guests commented on how great the band was, and how much they enjoyed the steel drum. In addition, it was extremely easy and convenient to communicate with the band (via Creig), and they assisted in coming up with an itinerary for the wedding. We would definitely recommend the Caribbean Crew to others for a wedding or similar event.

We loved the Caribbean Crew. Creig and his comrades were the best!!! Absolutely wonderful to work with on this event! They made everything easy, and had a great sense of timing to compliment our pace during the evening. There is nothing more that they could have done to improve on their performance or their readiness, manners, and communication. They were the perfect hire for the event. And, the music was superb, splendid, smashing...and so memorable. Thank you.

Creig and the Caribbean Crew were the best investment that we made for our Semester at Sea Alumni Reunion Voyage! They were able to entertain our 20 something's right on up to our 50, 60 and 70 year olds on the voyage. I would hire Caribbean Crew again in a heartbeat!

From the beginning of dealing with their manager we were impressed at how professional the group was. They arrived early and performed exceptionally. Having traveled all over and having heard many other steel drum bands, they were by far the best. Numerous guests requested their cards at the event because they were so fantastic. My family and I would highly recommend them without any hesitation. Thank you for making this such a fantastic event for our son's Bar Mitzvah.

It was our wedding night and we had so much fun dancing and having fun with the band. Our guest couldn't stop talking about how much fun our wedding was because the band kept them going all night long! -
