Amazing Florida Keys Musician!
We hired Chris to perform solo acoustic for our Wedding Ceremony, and our cocktail reception immediately following, at Pierre's in Islamaroda, Fl. It goes without saying that we are exceedingly pleased we were able to have Chris perform on our wedding day. Chris is a popular man, and we actually ensured to reserve him for our day about a year in advance. He was very communicative and easy to work with in the planning process. On the wedding, he was set up early and prepared with wireless mics and mic lapels for our officiant and groom. His sound system was clear and ample for our outdoor wedding. Additionally, our videographers were able to work seamlessly with Chris's setup to plug into the audio feed.Sent on 12/08/2019
We had Chris perform acoustic guitar only, with no vocals, during our ceremony. We provided 3 requested songs; one for our processional, one for the bride/father walk, and then the first song to be played after we were announced husband and wife. One of our first memories after being announced is being hearing Chris play that requested song, perfectly timed!
Chris also did a superb job during our cocktail hour. We had him play musician's choice, and he was able to set an amazing atmosphere to start our reception. It's an easy decision, if you are looking for a talented, relaxed, and professional musician, Chris is the guy. Thank you Chris!

From my first email to Chris, the communication was excellent. We had a very small wedding at with just very close family, so we just had him and no other musicians for our ceremony and dinner. Throughout the process, I was able to go over a lengthy list of music that he plays, so that I could let him know what songs we liked. He worked with me on the details of our music for the ceremony on the beach at the Islamorada Fish Company in the Florida Keys, and it all worked out beautifully. And, afterward, everyone enjoyed hearing his tunes when we moved over to the Zane Grey Lounge for dinner.Sent on 11/06/2019

My husband and I got married on 11/1/19 in Key West and hired Chris for our wedding and reception and couldn’t have been happier. He is very professional, accommodating, and very quick with communication. We decided to go with the live music and DJ combo with DJ Gunz. They both played at our reception at Margaritaville Resort and Chris played for our ceremony and cocktail hour. We got so many compliments on them during and after the wedding. I would recommend hiring Chris for your wedding! Thank you, Chris, for everything! Such a memorable week!Sent on 12/03/2019

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's reply:Thank you Jenny for having us play at your wedding at the Pier House Resort in Key West last month and thank you for the nice review!

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 was amazing. He is a class act.
Chris played at my sons wedding rehearsal dinner/ Welcome party at Hawks Cay resort. He was prompt. Gave us a big list of songs to pick from. We had a mixed crowd and he played music for everyone to enjoy. Everyone was complementing the music. You will be very happy with Chris. He's a class act.Sent on 06/13/2019

Best wedding band in Key West!
We are so happy with our decision to hire Chris Thomas and his band. His five piece band played our wedding venue and they did a phenomenal job! We had choreography to our first dance so we let Chris know how important it was to play the song exactly how it was recorded and they were perfect! They even learned a few specific songs for us. Chris is a really nice and talented guy and we actually went to go watch him play solo at a restaurant on our honeymoon. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, professional, talented band!Sent on 04/28/2019
Chris Thomas Music's reply:Thank you so much Sam. We really enjoyed playing at your wedding at Sunset Pier at the Ocean Key Resort in Key West!

Chris helped make our day special and unique!
The music was great. Our families complimented the music, specifically. Chris was also willing to learn and play our favorite song which wasn’t on his playlist. This proves he helps make your day just as special and unique as your relationship!Sent on 06/15/2019

Best Decision I Made
Where do I begin!? After reading reviews and watching videos of Chris perform I knew I needed him on my wedding day. From the moment I booked him, he was always available to answer questions or chat through the details of the day. Chris played ukulele at my wedding ceremony at Playa Largo Resort & Spa. I can't tell you how many people came up to me and told me it was the best ceremony they have ever been to. So much of that credit goes to Chris. He played three different songs for us, each breathtakingly beautiful. Walking down the aisle to "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You" with Chris's beautiful vocals and ukulele playing will forever bring tears to my eyes. Thank you Chris for bringing the exact feel and emotion that I hoped for on one of the best days of my life.Sent on 03/26/2019
All of Our Love, McKenzie and Sean Schnitzer

Chris is a must for a Key West Wedding!
Chris was the musician at both our rehearsal dinner at Waterfront Brewery and wedding ceremony & cocktail hour at Casa Marina. He was the PERFECT addition. So many guests told us how much they enjoyed his music and he created the perfect "island" vibe. He was also so easy to work with leading up to the event making the whole experience great from start to finish. We can't recommend him enough!Sent on 01/15/2019

I am not one to write reviews but I wanted to commend this gentleman. He did our music at our wedding and we got compliments from everyone! He fit right into what we wanted. He answers super fast and even worked with us when we kept changing our wedding song on him. I would highly recommend him and the men he works with!Sent on 08/31/2018

Good music is key for a great wedding reception, and Chris Thomas nailed it! Chris set the mood for our special day with a great song selection on the beach at Smathers prior to our ceremony. Had guests humming along to songs they know and love during our cocktail hour and kept everyone on the dance floor following dinner. Our guests are still talking about the great time they had dancing the night away with us at Bagatelle in Key West. Chris’ song list covers all genres and he’s open to requests, which kept the guests happy all night. Chris was easy to work with and very responsive to our requests and questions while planning the wedding reception. Look no further for your music entertainment.Sent on 03/16/2018

Chris played at our wedding reception and he was fabulous! I really enjoyed working with him throughout the planning process. He was professional, flexible and very prompt with email responses. His song list is extensive and he played an incredible version of a Pirate Looks at 40 for our first dance. Chris really listened to our song ideas and played all of our favorites plus the songs the guests requested throughout the night. Book him for your next event! You will be so pleased with his warm personality and amazing talent.Sent on 12/19/2017

Chris Thomas provided the music for our wedding at Casa Marina in Key West, then he and his band provided the entertainment for our reception. I have nothing but great things to say about them. They handled everything to make our special day as stress free as possible and rocked the house during our reception. He even learned a special song for our first dance. 5 Stars Plus! Thanks again Chris!Sent on 01/26/2018

We booked Chris Thomas for our Mom's 80th Birthday Party at our family house in Marathon. He was awesome!! We asked for his playlist ahead of the party, which was an impressive list of songs from many different genres of music. He played everything from rock, country, Sinatra, to current pop music. There was something for everyone to enjoy, and he did it all so well!!Sent on 10/23/2017
Amber · Married on 05/21/2017
We had Chris play at our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He was AMAZING! Everyone at the wedding raved about how great he was and what an awesome voice he had. Everybody was on their feet dancing and nobody wanted to leave the reception at the end of the night! We even wanted to ask Chris to keep playing but unfortunately, due to time restrictions, it wasn't a possibility. (We wished it could have happened!!) I am still getting feedback from guests about how the music was spectacular. Chris was there before the wedding to answer questions and also was accommodating as to the type of music we wanted played at the wedding. We were even fortunate enough to see him play at Ricks in November 2016. He was great. If you have the chance to see him play, it's worth it. Thank you, Chris!Sent on 06/02/2017

Chris just played for us at our very small and intimate wedding at the Key West Garden Club and it was magical. Chris was flexible with my last minute changes and even willing to play a song that wasn't on his original list! He was always quick to respond to my emails and super nice in person as well. I would highly recommend hiring Chris to perform at any ceremony whether big or super small like ours. Very talented and accommodating. Thanks Chris!Sent on 04/14/2017

We were so pleased to work with Chris for our wedding reception at Islander Resort in Islamorada. Chris was very responsive during all the planning and was very flexible. All our guests commented on how great the duo (guitarist and keyboardist) were and our Boston family especially loved when they played a special song "Sweet Caroline". I would definitely recommend Chris!Sent on 04/12/2017

We got married at the Casa Marina Resort in Key West and selected Chris to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour (we opted for a DJ for the reception out of preference). Chris was very pleasant to work with leading up to the event date and while I never got to personally meet with him, I got a lot of compliments on his music! We were very happy we chose him for our weddingSent on 04/20/2017
