Caladesi Steel Band is a traditional, authentic steel drum brand based out of Dunedin, Florida. Dave Holmstrand is the founder of the Caladesi Steel Band, and he and his partner Johnny Lowery have been playing together since the mid 90’s when they were in the Busch Gardens steel drum band. Dave and Johnny have years of performance experience, having been original members of the Tampa Bay Steel Orchestra. Specializing in traditional steel pan, the group can provide solo players to a big carnival band, depending on your preference. If you're looking for a lively mix of both traditional and island music, Caladesi Steel Band is the perfect choice to set the mood for your special day.
Caladesi Steel Band can provide the soundtrack for your whole wedding day, from acoustic music with a traditional and authentic island sound for your ceremony, to more upbeat and rhythmic music with a sound system for the rest of the evening. The group is able to perform at rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, and cocktail hours throughout Central Florida.

Perfect for our Beach Wedding!
We had the 4 person Caladesi Steel Band play for both our ceremony and cocktail hour. They had a huge selection of songs for the ceremony and were very responsive to our planning emails. This really made our beach wedding unique and special and our guests loved them.Sent on 07/30/2021

Caladesi Steel Band's reply:Thanks Yill! I was glad to be a part of it. Yes, be sure to call us again.
What a wonderful Steel Band. I love their music and so do my couples. Such a beachy feeling and so very romantic. Just perfect for a beach wedding! Always a pleasure to work with.
I am extremely happy that I found Dave Holmstrand and Caladesi Steel Band. From day one, Dave was professional and attentive. He responded to emails quickly, which I greatly appreciated, and answered all of my questions. He worked with us on a playlist, arrived on time and made the process so simple. Being a wedding planner, it is a blessing to have someone you can work with that you trust and would recommend in a second. Caladesi Steel Band is now a preferred vendor of mine, and highly recommended by Better Together Weddings.
I always enjoy working with the wonderful Caladesi Steel Band. Courteous, professional and talented – what more could a couple ask for? From classical to contemporary, the Band’s beautiful sounds set a wonderful tone for any event, and immediately transport the listener to the Islands. I highly recommend them to any bride and groom looking to add that special Caribbean flair to their wedding.
