Chris and his band were absolutely incredible! We had a destination wedding so we had to make plans from afar- and Chris couldn't have been easier to work with and also so helpful giving up tips on Key West and having a wedding there. He had come highly recommended- so I just went with it- and it was the best choice I made for the entire weekend.Sent on 05/07/2017
We had him play solo at our Friday night welcome party at the Audubon and then he played with his band for our wedding on Saturday at the Casa Marina. One thing I really liked- he was a one stop shop. I didn't have to coordinate with sound techs or another Vendor- he took care of it all!
The music was truly the best part of both. From a technical standpoint, we had professional musicians as guests there that were blown away by them!
Chris' band is not only a group of incredibly talented musicians- but they were also incredible at reading the room and playing music accordingly (which is truly an underrated skill)! If they saw people were wanting to converse they would play something ideal for that, and when they saw people were ready to dance they literally had everyone out on the dance floor just by their energy and song selection!
I picked a song for the dance with my dad that they had not played in a while (maybe ever?) and he had no problem learning/relearning it and it was perfect!!
I honestly cannot recommend Chris and the band highly enough. I did not shop around for prices so I cannot speak to that- but regardless Chris is worth every penny and more. And if you are planning a destination wedding, Chris makes your life so easy in the music aspect of it. He is responsive, professional, patient (which I desperately needed), and incredible at what he does! I can honestly say he made the wedding an absolute hit!

Great experience with Chris!
Chris played at our wedding and was fantastic! He played solo during our ceremony and as a duo for our reception and everyone loved him. This was a destination wedding, so planning from states away can be stressful, but Chris was really easy to work with and took any requests we had. I would highly recommend him!!Sent on 06/17/2019

Chris Thomas Music made our wedding night!
Chris Thomas Music absolutely made our wedding night the best night of our lives!! He and his 6 piece band played at our wedding reception in Islamorada, Florida Keys at Cheeca Lodge. Their song list is what caught our eye when picking a wedding band and Chris and his band listened to every single one of our song requests for pre dance floor songs and dance floor songs. His band also timed our prerecorded songs for our dances perfectly. My husband and I cannot thank Chris Thomas Music enough for making our wedding night perfect. Every guest raved about the band and songs and we cannot wait to hopefully use them again in the future and also go see them live to relive our night. If you are unsure about a wedding band, go with Chris Thomas Music (and I recommend the 6 piece band) - it will be the best decision you can make for your wedding night!!Sent on 06/11/2019

Chris is very talented, he makes the planning and music selection part easy for our customers. He is always on top of communication with the customers, planners and the venue. Chris is accommodating, punctual, easy to work with, and his music is beautiful. If you are planning a wedding, do not hesitate to hire Chris! The music he and his band plays will be a fantastic addition to your special event!
