    Excellent choice for your Wedding

    My daughter hired Chris Thomas for her destination wedding in Key West on Jan 22 2022. Chris provided acoustic music at the wedding ceremony at the Oldest House followed by his 4 piece band at the reception at the Old Town Manor. Chris was the perfect selection for both occasions. He was professional, courteous and well-seasoned to provide just the right touch at both events. His background acoustic guitar at the ceremony set the mood and then after at the reception he rocked the dance floor from start to finish. The guests continue to talk about how great the band was. Chris plays a wide variety of music to suit anyone's taste and I surely wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for your event!!

    Amazing Band that Made Our Wedding So Special

    Thank you to Chris Thomas and his 3 piece band!
    Their music made our wedding reception at the Conch Republic Seafood Company incredible! Chris was so responsive and easy to work with. He also is an excellent performer and was able to completely customize our reception to fit the feeling of the crowd. By the end of the night EVERYONE was on their feet dancing! We received so many compliments on the entertainment. His song list is also extensive to reach a variety of musical tastes. I would 100% recommend this band to anyone booking in the Florida Keys!
