Mr. Stapleton played for my wedding ceremony on march 12th 2016. The serenade was an unforgettable experience. I’m still receiving calls from my family and friends about his performance it was beautiful! I rate him off the chart, he was excellent!


It is with great pleasure I write this letter highly recommending the Encore Band for your Entertainment needs. Currently I am the Recreation Supervisor for the Marriott Frenchman’s Cove in ST. Thomas and I have had the opportunity to work closely with this band for over 10 years. They have a very dynamic music selection and repertoire that is fitting for any occasion.

The most impressive aspect of this band is the ability to interact with the audience through music. They successfully develop a connection with the guests by finding out where they are from, favorite sport team, etc. I also admire Encore Band’s ability to incorporate Virgin Island culture by demonstrating local dance moves that the guests love to taking home to show their friends. At the end of the night everyone is on their feet dancing and singing all the words to songs and grooving to the saxophone played by the manager and band leader Dr. Clinton Stapleton.

Dr. Stapleton is very familiar with the hotel and hospitality industry. With over 20 years of experience playing for conventions, weddings, anniversaries, company parties, and holiday events, the name “Encore Band” is not only a band it’s a brand standard that delivers unforgettable experiences to the listening audience.
