Birthday Party (Kids)Reviewed on July 29, 2023From Romeoville, IL

Couldn't be more pleased with our experience. The guests were talking about how perfect he was for our Bob Marley themed party for our son long after he had gone! He accommodated my music requests and was a total professional. Very nice guy, too! Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to hire him for their event. Really set the vibe and added something special to our party. You won't regret it! :)


Thanks for the amazing 5-star review Andreece!

Scott arrived a little early to set up for our agreed upon time. The music was a perfect addition to my end of summer party. All of my guests said his performance made their evening. They all requested his business card, so they could use him in the future.I would not hesitate to use him in the future. Great job Scott!


Thank you for the 5 star review Sandra!

What an outstanding job Scott did - helping to make our birthday event extra special. Everyone loved the tropical calypso feel of his music. Someone even suggested we ask him to play every weekend for our pool activities! Wouldn't THAT be nice..???!! Loved it. Thank you Scott, and GigMasters. We'll be asking him back again in the future.


Thank you very much for the 5-star review Julie. You and Rick were great hosts and I had fun performing and being a part of Rick's birthday celebration. Scott

Callaloo is a wonderful talent and a great addition to any event. He was very professional and is an excellent musician. We booked him for our block party and the neighbors loved it. He had an excellent repertoire of music and encouraged requests. We will definitely book him for future events.


I had a great time playing for your block party. I look forward to possibly performing for another event in the future. Thanks!
