About
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.

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!

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!

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.

Mike and his band were very professional. We have never used the internet for our appreciation dinners. I was very confident that we would not be disappointed and never worried about if they would show or not. Actually he was the one who kept contact with us which made the task of the entertainment a lot easier. The nicest part was that they were very friendly and came early and did a wonderfule job. We were very pleased.

We thoroughly enjoyed Mike. Amazing performer who played the entire time to spite encouraging him to break for a meal. He was extremely talented and personable. Perfect music for our Caribbean birthday party. All my guests loved him and I would highly recommend him and will definitely call on him again!

Mike and the gang are extremely professional! They showed up early and accomodated our last minutes location switch due to rain. The background music they played definitely enhanced our college reunion event. Mike was very prompt in returning my calls & emails prior to the event. I would highly recommend CAISO for your next event!

Michael King kept in contact with us as the date of the party approached. We had no play list; the music they selected was familiar to our older crowd, yet with a calypso twist that was perfect. All four musicians were very friendly. They made the honored birthday girl feel special. We could not have found a better steel drum band!
