Feel the Rhythm

If you want a bit of the Caribbean at your wedding, Island Hoppin' Steel Drum Band -- a group of three steel drummers, one bass guitarist and one drum set player -- can bring it. They can even learn any song you want if you give them three weeks notice. Island Hoppin' Steel Drum Band, Los Angeles, (562) 522-3101

Do the Twist

Have a rockin' retro reception with Bobby and The Blackouts. “Mr. Bob” Crail rocks the saxophone while three other band members add bass, drums and guitar to early rock hits like “Shake, Rattle and Roll” and “Peggy Sue.” They have an extensive repertoire, but they take requests too! Bobby and The Blackouts, Santa Monica, (877) 541-1129

Tip the Sombrero

Mariachi Espuelas de Mexico can turn your wedding into a fiesta with their Latin-flavored music. And, yes, they wear the traditional mariachi ensemble. Mariachi Espuelas de Mexico, Anaheim, (714) 404-8962

Swing Your Hips

Even though swing band Sugah Daddy is known for their big-band and jump blues tunes, they'll happily slow it down for your cocktail hour or ceremony. Among them, the eight members can play 15 different instruments, so they can sound like a different ensemble for each event of the day. Sugah Daddy, Huntington Beach, (714) 270-2154
