The band you choose will make or break your event. The Caribbean Crew is the very best! We are one of the most frequently hired Caribbean Bands in the country (over 200 shows per year) and we are the five-time national winners of the Gigmasters Rising Star Award for "Top Steel Drum Band" in North America. We are also the national winners of the Gigmasters Rising Star Award for "Top Corporate Event Entertainer" in North America. We have also been voted "Best Reggae Act" by the Orlando Weekly Magazine. As a result, you may get cheaper quotes from less accomplished bands. However, the quality and professionalism will not be the same as The Caribbean Crew.
Based in Orlando, The Caribbean Crew is one of the most frequently hired live bands and wedding bands in Florida. During the wedding ceremony, our steel drum player can perform traditional wedding music on the steel drums, such as the Bridal Chorus, Canon in D and the Wedding March. Please check out our website showcasing traditional ceremony music performed on the steel drum. If you prefer something non-traditional, the steel pan player can perform a nice reggae selection for the processional and an upbeat calypso selection for the recessional. The lead singer can even serve as MC and take care of the formal introductions and announcements.
We also provide Caribbean Music and Island Music for corporate events, conventions, holiday parties, Christmas parties, house parties, pool parties, birthday parties, anniversaries, retirement parties, graduation parties, fundraisers, christenings, or any other special occasion.
The Caribbean Crew is well known for their high-energy and interactive performances. The musicians are all from the islands, giving you an authentic, Caribbean sound. While on stage, the Crew teaches different dances to the crowd, as well as many other 'follow-me' routines. The band is very professional, both in their attire, and approach to every event. The Caribbean Crew always arrives early and starts on time!
The Caribbean Crew offers a wide variety of original and cover music, from traditional reggae and calypso, to modern day soca and dancehall. We also perform some Top 40 hits, folk songs, Jimmy Buffet selections, Latin Music, traditional wedding ceremony music and other popular wedding music and wedding songs. During the holidays, we can perform traditional Christmas Carols and other Christmas Music and Holiday Music on the steel drums. The Caribbean Crew can be as small as a solo steel drum player, or as large as a five-piece live band. It all depends on the size of the event and the available budget. All acts include a steel pan player, which is something that your guests will really like.
We have also performed at several Colleges and Universities. These include: Bethune-Cookman University, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Georgia State University, Orlando Culinary Academy, Ringling College of Art and Design, Rollins College, Savannah College of Arts and Design, Semester at Sea, South Dakota State University, Stetson University, The University of Central Florida, University of Florida, University of South Florida, University of Tampa, Valdosta State University, Tallahassee Community College, Palm Beach State College and Webber International University.
