Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 24, 2022From Davidson, NC

The band exceeded expectations. They were very professional, personable, talented and entertaining. Outstanding in every way. I feel so fortunate to have found Sensory Expressions and been able to hire them. Our party guests were extremely impressed with the band. I strongly recommend this group.

The steel drums made the party! The drummer was on time and communication with him was easy. We've had him twice and he is fantastic!

Vaughn and Sensory Expressions were the perfect band for our 50th anniversary of the founding of our sailing club. The cocktails and festive dancing by our members was superb. Sailing and Caribbean Island music belong together. Water and sailboats in the background provided a perfect atmosphere.

Vaughn and Sensory Expressions were the true highlight of our beach themed event! Just one note on that steel pan drum and you immediately get transported to somewhere tropical. We highly recommend Sensory Expressions and will definitely be reaching out to book them for our same event next year!

Sensory Expressions really made our event! Our staff loved the song selections and they are a truly talented band. I'm sure if we had some song requests they would have obliged but they were right on with what they presented to us.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 10, 2021From Raleigh, NC

Sensory Expressions (the steel drummer) was AMAZING! We had the steel drummer Vaughn during our cocktail hour for our reception and he kept the guest entertained the entire time. He set the tone for our Caribbean reception and I would highly recommend Sensory Expressions for your next event.

Family ReunionReviewed on July 17, 2011From Folly Beach, SC

This band is EXCELLENT! They are very good musicians. They are professionals. The attendees of my family reunion (many of whom are musicians from all over the country)continue to call me about their love for Sensory Expressions... they want more or a recording. Willing to hire this group again and again without reservation. EXCELLENT!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 5, 2021From Creedmoor, NC

Sensory Expressions performed for my husband's 60th birthday party. They arrived early and prepared for the evening. The music selections were well received by our guests and everyone had an amazing evening. I would highly recommend them if someone is in need of a live band experience. It is an experience that I will never forget.

Community EventReviewed on June 21, 2014From Randleman, NC

Very professional from start to finish - excellent group ! Many comments from attendees of the North Carolina Food Truck State Championship in Randleman, NC such as I can close my eyes and feel like I'm in the Caribbean with a breeze blowing through my hair. Several musical groups and this is the best one yet one man said. When are they coming back ? These are comments you want to hear and that is what we heard from the public. Great job Sensory Expressions !!! We will see you again soon in Randleman, NC.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 23, 2021From Rolesville, NC

Quick to respond. On time. Friendly and accommodating. Easy to work with and simply amazing. Such a talented musician. Came out early for my birthday brunch and played nonstop. My guest enjoyed the island vibe! We did not want it to stop. I would absolutely use this group again.

Vaughn was great! He responded in a timely fashion, quietly and promptly set up, played music we requested, and overall gave a wonderful and memorable experience. We have hired him twice already and will call on him for any future events! Thanks The Bash and Vaughn! :)

I would definitely book them again. Vaughn and his group are talented musicians and their female vocalist has a gifted voice. I've only received positive feedback from the crowd that was in attendance.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on April 20, 2019From Raleigh, NC

Sensory Expressions made my dads 91st birthday celebration very memorable. The guest finally became relaxed when the band started playing. The female vocalist was outstanding and left us speechless. My only regret is that I didn't have them for the entire party.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on June 8, 2013From Norfolk, VA

Sensory Expressions were absolutely amazing! Vaughn stayed in touch with me during the planning stages & did a great job with keeping me informed as to what the band required to get set up to play. The guys did not hesitate to learn how to play our "first dance" song which was not a song they had played previously. It sounded fantastic!! They were so entertaining & did a great job of getting guests to dance (even during their breaks)! They are extremely talented musicians and they are a lot of fun. Every one of the 6 musicians who played at my wedding were personable and professional. The guests continue to make positive comments! Thanks so much guys! You were FIRE??

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 9, 2016From Durham, NC

Wow, so impressed with the sound generated on the steel drums. Everyone loved hearing the beautiful calypso, Caribbean infused music. I received a lot of compliments and I plan to use him again.

WeddingReviewed on July 9, 2016From Raleigh, NC

We went with Vaughn sight unseen and he did not disappoint. He was a one man steel drum party. Kept the energy up at our hour and a half cocktail hour for our wedding. Overall great experience stress free would highly reccomend to anyone considering.
