The Island Guys can provide fun wedding entertainment for you in the form of Steel Drum Music, Caribbean Music, Island Music, Calypso Music, Reggae Music, Soca Music as well as Top 40 dance music and Jazz. We do all types of weddings, including beach weddings, island weddings, destination weddings, and traditional church weddings inside or outside. We play beautiful island music to make your big day romantic, elegant, simple, tropical and fun.
We can perform for your wedding ceremony, reception, cocktail hour and rehearsal dinner. During the wedding ceremony, the steel drum player can perform traditional wedding music on the steel drums, such as the Bridal Chorus, Canon in D and the Wedding March. If you prefer something non-traditional, the band can perform a nice reggae selection for the processional and a upbeat calypso selection for the recessional. Our lead singer can even serve as MC and take care of the formal introductions and announcements for your reception. If you require solo piano for any part of your ceremony our keyboardist Terrence Lester is also an accomplished wedding pianist who can play a variety of different musical pieces for your wedding.
Prior to your wedding, we will contact you for all the details and we will assist you in completing the itinerary for the wedding ceremony and wedding reception. You will find this particularly helpful if you have not hired a wedding planner. The band will have a print out of the itinerary with every single detail. This will ensure a smooth transition from start to finish. We book weddings up to 18 months. All that is required is a deposit and signed contract to reserve the band.
