My husband and I were so happy to have the Kareem Kandi Band play at our wedding reception. We were pleasantly surprised at how reasonable their rates were for how popular they are in the Tacoma/Seattle area. Kareem was so easygoing and professional, and of course plays incredible jazz.

I had heard the Kareem Kandi Band, myself, years ago and really enjoyed them. So I was delighted to find out that I could hire them for a private event. Unbeknownst to me, this band was a favorite of several attendees at my event. They are exceptionally talented, and are capable of playing anything requested (except Lynerd Skynerd, I was told.) I highly recommend them. KIm
