"Joey was a pleasure to work with. He was so accommodating, so quick to respond when I had questions, always answered his phone, and good natured, willing, and cooperative. Everyone at the party thoroughly enjoyed his music, in fact, we couldn't get them off the dance floor when it was time for the party to be over! Highly recommend him!"

"A great big thank you to Joey and the Band that made my daughter’s wedding so special. They were the highlight of the whole night. Some didn’t like the vegan food, some didn’t like the alcohol choices, but EVERYONE loved the artistry of their music. The compliments were endless and I appreciate all they did for us. Thank you again! I wish them all the best life can offer."
- Maria L. (Wedding)
"Hired Joey for a corporate dinner event at PGA National in April. Both clients and myself were very impressed and only heard excellent feedback on his solo guitarist performance. Would definitely recommend him for all events, not only corporate functions. Fantastic!!"
- Lindsey D. (Corporate Event)
"Joey recently performed for our wedding ceremony and reception. He was very accommodating and learned every song I requested. He was professional and so many people complimented how great he was singing and playing during the wedding and after. Thank you Joey for helping make my wedding so perfect and special!! I highly recommend him!!"
- Laura K. (Wedding)
"Joey and Alex played at our wedding last weekend and they were amazing!! It felt like every single guest told us how fantastic the music was. The piano/guitar combination along with their amazing vocals was the perfect choice for our event! We are so grateful to both of them for such a memorable experience. We would recommend them to anyone who's looking for entertainment guaranteed to impress their guests!"

"HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We are so happy we hired Joey's band for our destination wedding in Key Largo! Joey was always professional, easy to coordinate with, and sounded so good live. His band exceeded our expectations and made the wedding night…we’re still hearing about it from friends and family. Much love!
- Justin D. (Wedding)
"Joey and the band were fabulous! They were reliable, professional and most importantly played the BEST music and made our party a complete success!!! Would totally book them again!"
- Patricia V. (Birthday Party)
"I am a huge music lover and I did a lot of research before I hired Joey's band to play our wedding day hosted at Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa. Joey was quick to answer all my questions and concerns and was accommodating in every way. The variety of music was incredible and the band sounded like a million dollars. My guests were floored by the sound and commented over and over "Where did you find these guys"? One of my friends even said " We thought we were going to a wedding...but this was like going to a great concert!" They played an excellent laid back set of music during our dinner and when it was time for dancing, they played a set that brought down the house. I will be forever grateful for their contribution to our wedding and I hope to stay in touch and see them again at other venues. If you need a great band for any occasion I highly recommend them and be prepared to be blown away. Do yourself a favor, stop researching a band and hire these guys. They are flawless."
- Ian S. (Wedding)
"Everyone said it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to and I think the band had a lot to do with that. People were dancing all night. No awful "Electric Slide" or other typical wedding songs. They kept the party going. It was a blast!"
- Adrienne D. (Wedding)
"This band is a GEM! We have used the Joey Calderaio Band as a regular music act at our Sunday GreenMarket event. When our employee holiday party rolled around, we reached out to them to provide the entertainment. They were versatile, professional and our guests raved about the performance quality and music selection. They remained professional throughout the performance & delivered exactly what we discussed in advance. The lead singer has a beautiful voice that is only enhanced by the high caliber of musicians that make up the band. We are looking forward to the next opportunity we have to use them! They are fun to hear and watch!"
- Candice T. (Holiday Party)
