This band was incredible. We chose the 5 piece swing option. First, the communication was stellar from the first moment we were in contact. Cheri responded to all of our e-mails (questions, concerns, requests) almost immediately. We were talking with several other bands, and none of them were able to respond as quickly and effectively. On the day, the band arrived early with plenty of time to set up. Then, the music began. They were amazing. Some of the best live performers I've ever heard. Everyone at our reception, kids to grandparents, were on their feet dancing. And when the sax man played TWO saxophones simultaneously, the crowd went nuts. Perfection.

Cheri and Tony were wonderful. Everyone raved about how perfect the steel band was for the setting. They both added just the right touch to help make our day as beautiful and as memorable as we thought it could ever be, and we can't recommend them enough. Jamie & Philip

From day one it was so easy working with Cheri and the guys from Island of Rhythm Entertainment. They were on time, set up in a timely manner, and were awesome performers! They played the songs we asked them to, and many others that everyone loved. They have great talent, the keyboard player was keeping the rhythm, Cheri can get down on the drums, and the guy playing the Sax was awesome, sometimes playing two at the same time. Everyone was impressed with the band. I've had so many people tell me how good they were and how they will book them for other events. I definitely recommend these guys, you won't be disappointed!

I absolutely loved this band! They were exactly what I wanted for my wedding reception. Their music selection was the perfect blend of traditional "wedding music" and jazz and swing. My family had a blast dancing to them. Our only issue was that some of our friends, all in their 20's, couldn't really appreciate the style of music. We played some DJ/rap and dance music during the band's 2 breaks, and that worked out well for those guests. But all in all, it was our wedding, not theirs, and I was THRILLED with Sicily Swing Band. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Tony and Cheri did a great job for our event, prompt arrival, conducted themselves in a professional manner and played a wide variety of music. Steel drums at the beach wedding, jazz music early at the reception and DJ at the end for dancing. Thanks Tony and Cheri! Jim W.
