I'm so glad I came across George and his wife Lorna. The music was beautiful and it made our beach wedding perfect. Lorna was in constant communication and was very patient with my lack of time to communicate things. They took control of making sure everything went smoothly. George continued to play until all of our guests cleared out. Your talent and professionalism is top of the line. Thank you again!

We hired Crzan Vibes for steel drums during the ceremony and live band during the reception. We knew we wanted steel drums for the ceremony to match our island vibe wedding, we were pleased with the ambiance George created. What we were a little nervous about was the reception, we had never seen the band live before because we live in Chicago and could never get out to see them when they played in SWFL. We rolled the dice on Cruzan Vibes and they blew the roof off! Our guests had a blast dancing the night away with the full band. We thank all the band members and wish the best to Lorna and George!
Lorna is excellent with scheduling and making sure every aspect of the plan for music is correct. George is a wonderful musician. The flexibility with song choice and willingness to learn new music (with enough time ahead) is outstanding!
