The band was great and made our party so much fun. They gave it such a happy vibe. They are very good musicians and nice people. They arrived early to set up and were accommodating. I will hire them again and recommend them highly.

Christmas PartyReviewed on January 20, 2017From 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 11, 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.

Cocktail PartyReviewed on June 13, 2011From Roanoke, VA

Recently, our law firm held its annual attorney/spouse party. Approximately 100 people attended the event, which was Caribbean themed. We searched the East Coast for the BEST Caribbean band to set the right atmosphere for our event. We were impressed with Vaughn and his group from the first contact through his kind follow up at the end. They are a remarkably talented group of musicians who make you feel that you are in the Caribbean with your "toes in the water and butt in the sand." If you are looking for a professional group with high quality music, you will be thrilled with the music of Sensory Expressions." Matt Broughton, Partner, Roanoke Virginia law firm.

Sensory Expressions did a great job for a corporate event we hired them for in March. The music was great and they had the dance floor packed! The client was very happy with the performance.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 22, 2015From Raleigh, NC

Vaughn was awesome at our wedding ceremony! He arrived early, was professional, and set up in an excellent location. His setup was loud enough to be heard by all guests, and he played beautifully. He was even able to learn a quick song I requested ahead of time. Many of our guests told me how great the music was, and how much they enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend Vaughn for any function!

EventReviewed on December 26, 2013From Raleigh, NC

Vaughn with Sensory Expressions was absolutely fantastic. He played the steel drums for our Company Christmas party and his music couldn't have been more perfect. Our employees loved it .... very festive and fun! He was such a pleasure to work with from the beginning. I would highly recommend Vaughn, and our company would book him again in a heartbeat! :)

Engagement PartyReviewed on May 19, 2013From Burlington, NC

This band was perfect for our event. Vaughn was a delight to work with. They were on time, professional, talented, and a lot of fun. We had guests in their 30's to 70's and all were out on the dance floor throughout the evening. It was a magical night and I would certainly recommend them and hire them again. Next time I want to hear their sax player!

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on May 10, 2013From Rocky Mount, NC

Vaughn was very professional and showed a love for his craft. he entertained the guest at cocktail hour and they loved him. He was kind enough to even extend more selections to us. Thank you so much for adding a Caribbean flavor to out day.

WeddingReviewed on July 21, 2015From Chapel Hill, NC

We had a blast with Sensory Expressions, and on our wedding day no other local reggae band would suffice. The cocktail hour came to life with Vaughn's steel drumming. And everyone danced all night long to the good vibes and smooth rhythms of the band. My friend is getting married next July, she's already asking me to hook her up with Sensory Expressions.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 2, 2012From Kinston, NC

We REALLY enjoyed having Sensory Expressions perform at my husband's 40th birthday event! Everyone commented on how nice it was to hear music that was a little "different" and that added such a nice, festive atmosphere to our party. They were on time and were very nice people. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
