Dear Steve and Rick – I just want to take a moment to say how special our Friday night dinner was. It almost felt like its own wedding! When I hunted online for a band, I knew exactly what I wanted. When I picked you guys I had faith you were right, but was faced with questions from my (then fiance) “How do you KNOW they will be good?!”. Let me just say, you BLEW us away. You were way above what I had in mind and did such an incredible job- it doesn’t do it justice, but all I can say is thank you. I received compliments from everyone about how fantastic you guys were…you made our Friday night dinner perfect- we are so appreciative!!! All the best,

They were GREAT to work with and their professionalism was a bonus. You could tell they have a wonderful working relationship with each other and enjoy what they do. I really appreciate how well they adapted to our request for Beatles and Buffett because our crowd really, really enjoyed the music and the change in pace from what we normally host. I will definitely keep them on our list to consider for our 2011 series! Please pass along my thank you to them as well for a great evening!

The CGB would rank way up there as being one of the better bands that I’ve ever acquired for one of our events here on Daniel Island! The played such a great mixture of songs and are such talented musicians. You can definitely tell that they have been playing music together for many years.

We could not have been more pleased with the Coconut Groove Band. They were excellent musicians, and the dance floor was full most of the time! They accommodated us by playing numerous songs off of a “requested song” list we sent them, and everyone loved hearing all those great old songs! Rick and the other guys were especially nice in being willing to learn, and play, “My Wish,” for my husband’s first dance with the bride. Charlie was especially appreciative to have this special song for this very special time. I would not hesitate to recommend the band to any of my friends, and I hope there will be an opportunity for us to hire them in the future (no more children to get married, but maybe an anniversary party one day…?). Best wishes,
The band was perfect. In fact most everyone we have talked to said that they were the best wedding band that they have every heard. They were great with our crowd, played awesome songs, sounded great, and were just generally the exact right band for our reception. They did a spot on rendition of “Swept Away”, and they kept going strong. It was fun to talk briefly with some members afterwards who just as appreciative of our energy and enthusiasm as we were of theirs. Thank you for your hard work. I would recommend this band to anyone for a wedding or other event!
