Amara Cay 4/29

We hired Chris Thomas to play solo with his guitar for our wedding at Amara Cay Resort in Islamorada, Florida. He exceeded our expectations & we could not have been happier with his talent! He was the perfect addition to the laid back Keys style wedding that we were going for. We would hire him again in a heartbeat! Thank you Chris! :)

Chris Thomas Music makes an unforgettable day even better!

We were debating hiring a DJ for our wedding at the Audubon House in Key West because they could play more of our style of music instead of the typical wedding tunes played by many bands today. We are SO HAPPY we went with Chris Thomas Music instead. The solo guitar ceremony music was perfect for the whimsical Audubon House venue. Then, the 5-piece band rocked the reception with songs we were able to hand select from Chris's repertoire of hundreds of songs. An already unforgettable experience was enhanced so much more by the band.

4/13/2023 Wedding at KWGC

My fianc茅 and I are both musicians so the music for our reception was especially important to us.We hired Chris to play a solo acoustic set during cocktail hour at our wedding at Key West Garden Club in April.I also provided a playlist we had curated to be played but was so impressed with his performance that we asked if he would continue to play through the rest of the party!He was happy to accommodate our requests and I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for live music for their private event.
