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!

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.

Cruise Ship EventReviewed on April 11, 2011From Edgewood, MD

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.

CAISO was AMAZING at my luau themed wedding. All of my guests loved them. They were willing to play my my iPod during their breaks. I'm so glad that I picked CAISO!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 31, 2014From Stafford, VA

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!

College ReunionReviewed on April 24, 2010From College Park, MD

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!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 5, 2011From Front Royal, VA

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!

CAISO SteelBand:

Hey Chuck B, Thank you for your feedback. We really enjoyed performing at the Bday Celebration. Your friend and family are really nice people. Mike K

Rehearsal DinnerReviewed on July 22, 2011From Woodbridge, VA

WOW! This band is AMAZING! They played for our son's rehearsal dinner and they made the party! Everyone was up dancing. Throughout the evening people kept asking how we found such an incredible band. They couldn't believe we found them on line -- nor could we! They are talented musicians who were there to entertain us and make sure everyone was having fun. They were easy to work with: very professional, yet also fun and helpful. We love this band! We will definitely hire them if we ever need a steel drum band again...and we're trying to think of excuses to have another party just to dance with them again! :-)

Private PartyReviewed on September 12, 2009From Annapolis, MD

CAISO were quite outstanding. They arrived on time, set up with no fuss, started to play the instant a guest appeared, and were a great hit with everyone who attended the party. I recommend them highly and would enthusiastically engage them again for an event.

Awards Night PartyReviewed on May 18, 2009From Marriottsville, MD

Wonderful experience, delightful music, great show. Arrived early to set up, started on time, very accomodative. Highly recommend to all. In fact, the Golf Club manager asked them to play in future awards events at his Club.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 14, 2012From Upper Marlboro, MD

They were just right for the wedding reception over-50 crowd. They're music was something that everyone could dance to. As the evening wore on, they got better.

Restaurant EventReviewed on September 30, 2011From Middleburg, VA

What a difference having CAISO SteelBand perform at our event made to our Caribbean-themed rehearsal dinner. It was a large event, and they played beautifully, also happily playing any special requests. Their music really "made" the atmosphere. They were open to changes I made in timing and length of performance as we firmed up our plans for the dinner. During the evening, they were friendly, but always behaved very professionally. They were well-groomed and appropriately dressed, and my event would not have been even half as much fun without them! I am pleased beyond words!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 6, 2010From Dickerson, MD

Overall experience: awesome! These guys totally rock! Many of the guests at our wedding have specifically raved about the performance. We were so grateful that they learned The Rainbow Connection for us. Their arrangement was terrific! Thanks for everything, C.A.I.S.O.! Dave & Shani

The band was great! They arrived on time, played wonderfully, and were pleasant to desal with ... what more could you ask for?

Rehearsal DinnerReviewed on September 30, 2011From Cambridge, MD

Caiso Steel Band was amazing. They made the rehearsal dinner so much fun. When I booked them I just thought they would be background music, but they were so good that everyone got up and danced for a large part of the evening. Michael was so nice and easy to work with. He even honored my request to show us how to do a line dance that we wanted him to play. I would definately have them at another party and I would highly reccommend them for your party.

CelebrationReviewed on May 28, 2011From Queenstown, MD

CAISO SteelBand played at a crab feast we had on the night prior to our wedding! They were so fun to watch and really got into the groove. They were professional at all times, and Mike answered all questions via email promptly. Totally easy to work with and lovely to listen to- would definitely recommend them!! THANKS GUYS!!!

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on July 30, 2011From Washington, DC

CAISO performed at the cocktail hour of my wedding. They were phenomenal! Several of our guests said that CAISO played a large part in making it the best cocktail hour they have ever been to and it was a highlight of the wedding. My family is from the Caribbean, and we had to force one of my aunts to take her seat in the reception hall, because she wanted to keep listening to the band. If you're looking for a great steel drum band, look no further. CAISO is it!

PicnicReviewed on August 20, 2011From Fairfax, VA

The CAISO SteelBand was a pleasure to work with. They sounded great, looked great, and they could not have been nicer. They were a really fun bunch of guys. Their booking agent was very professional and dealt promptly with my questions and concerns. We hired them to play at our Annual Homeowners Picnic, which attracts over 500 guests. Over the past 4 years, we had been using a different band. We had decided that it was time for something new. This was the first time we had tried a different band. We were a little worried about how it might turn out, but the band exceeded my expectations. I am hoping to book them again next year. I would recommend them to anyone.
