About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Thank you for the opportunity to share some information about CAISO SteelBand with you. At times event planning can be very stressfull. CAISO wants to make booking a live band as simple as possible. CAISO stands for Caribbean American International Steel Orchestra. We are the hottest steeldrum band in the DC and Baltimore area. Our music draws from the Calypso, Soca, Reggae, and Latin Jazz influences. The band has been in existence for over 30 years which should give you some evidence as to level of professionalism. Our band has sustained its high reputation these many years; we are primarily an instrumental group, however, we can include vocals in our performances. Our small ensembles provide a big band sound. CAISO SteelBand has headlined concert and community events as well as performed as opening act for nationally known touring bands such as the Beach Boys and Jimmy Buffet. We are regularly booked to promote brand and product launches for major corporations and small businesses. Examples of some of our recent brand marketing bookings have been for the Safeway's National Capital Barbeque Battle in DC, the Caribbean Sounds 10K Race and 5K Walk (charity event in DC), TGI Fridays, DC Jazzfest Jazz in the hood series just to name a few. We continue to perform throughout the DMV and have took our talents all the way to the country of Kosovo! Our band has the expertise to provide festive live caribbean steeldrum music for weddings, corporate and social events. We are the trailblazers of steeldrum music in the DMV and second to none. We typically perform as 4 player group. We also perform as Steeldrum soloist and duo even trio, providing quality live music to fit all budgets.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 19, 2014From Great Falls, VA

This band made our party very special. For some reason several of our guests arrived early.These guys were flexible--no haughty attitude -- and made our evening so much more fun. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

Community EventReviewed on July 16, 2015From Dumfries, VA

I would actually give 5 stars for this performance if I could. Michael was fabulously talented, professional, and truly a nice person. He arrived early and never once took a break! He was constantly moving and entertaining our crowd. I will definitely schedule him again!

Community EventReviewed on September 28, 2013From Rockville, MD

I Just want to say thanks to Mike and the Caiso steel band crew. We had a carribean theme party and it was a blast. The steel band artist provided by Mike was the best I cant explain how great he was. He made everybody happy and feel like they were on a island dream vacation. I highly recomend the Caiso Band for any event and I will be calling them again on our next party. Thanks again you guys are the best.
