“Vikki and Bill performed for our International High School Class Reunion (Class of 1965). Our group included classmates and friends from 13 different nations, varied backgrounds and ages 25 to 85. Their choice of music, friendly performance and collaboration touched us all. We sang and danced to a variety of songs that most knew. Vikki and Bill were very accommodating in allowing a sing-along and making the event fun and memorable. I have received several great compliments from the party attendees concerning their performance. We would certainly recommend them to any event.” — Carlos & Anne Lemos
“A Five Star rating for Kaleidoscope Duo! We hired this duo for our corporate Christmas party for the third year in a row. Our staff were excited to have them back again to bring their great mix of songs, high energy and talent! They were very engaged with the guests and kept the party going the whole night. We highly recommend this band for any occasion!” — Rob Wright, President and Owner, Florida Design Consultants, Inc.
“We hired this band to sing at my Mom’s 60th surprise birthday party and they did a fantastic job. They were great to work with and super friendly. They took requests and helped to make the evening great! They were a great addition to our party and everyone really enjoyed their performance. Highly recommend!” — Heather M. & Joe Z. , New Port Richey, Florida
“I just had my 60th birthday in October. My husband did a wonderful job planning it. The food, cake, decorations and great friends. But what really stood out was the AMAZING entertainment!! Kaleidoscope Band Duo (Bill & Vikki), were AWESOME and very VERSATILE! Their 60′s, 70′s, 80′s, 90′s [and current] music kept everyone dancing and just having fun! We received a lot of compliments from our guests the entire evening. If you ever need an excellent band, Vikki & Billy, Kaleidoscope Duo, will not let you down!! Thank you for making my day very SPECIAL!! I can’t wait to hire you again for another event! Luv ya!” — Dianne & Scott Golbach, Florida
“Let me get this said first to the clientele that are perusing Thumbtack and other websites looking for entertainment for their event. It has been a hard year of isolation and careful consideration of what we do and what we do not do.
“That said, our 55+ community decided to go ahead with an outdoor event held at our pavilion. We, like many others, did not have the usual snacks, or dinners we once had, (that was always something to look forward to) but oh, how we wanted the music and the dancing and laughter. So we were relying heavily on the entertainment.
“Vikki and Bill of Kaleidoscope Duo gave us a night to remember! We were entertained with their songs from slow dancing like the Righteous Brother’s, to Chris Isaak, Santana, and Gloria Estefan. They just transport you with their voices and Bill’s guitar, to times and places that lift you up and we just had to get on that dance floor!
“The three hours went by so quickly, but it always does when you’re in an atmosphere such as Kaleidoscope provides. Bill and Vikki are so warm and accommodating, friendly with each person who is at your event. That’s something that not all professionals offer – but they do!
“Want to make your event, party, etc. a success? Hire Vikki and Bill you will never regret it! Word of advise though – book them in a timely manner!” — Nancy Nicklas, Event Coordinator, Stonehedge On The Hill Community, Tarpon Springs, FL
“We were so fortunate to have Kaleidoscope entertain for our annual New Year’s Eve party. We had a very active group of 30 who danced and sang all night and seriously loved the band. Such a great range of a perfect song mix. We would give them more than 5 Stars if possible.”– Jeff & Barbie Rosenberg, Sarasota, FL
“These two wonderfully talented people performed at my daughter’s wedding. This is no lie but people were raving about them for weeks. If you are looking for great vocals and music, do not miss out on them. I had a last minute change in the ceremony and contacted them to see if it would be possible to sing and perform ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’. They were gracious and accommodated my request and nailed it. If you are looking for a fantastic group capable of covering any family of music, they are for you. They blew me away and the next thing they’re playing: Sublime. Beautiful, exciting people who may take any of your events to a new level. I highly recommend them. You won’t be disappointed”. — Mike Leporati, Bradenton, FL
“I just want to let you know how much everyone enjoyed your music. I heard so many positive comments about what a great sound you and Bill have, how varied your songs are, how you were good to listen to yet we could still talk with our neighbors. Thanks so much for coming to Esplanade Lakewood Ranch and making it a special evening. We sure hope you’ll be back!” — Gwyneth Paget, Social Coordinator, Esplanade Lakewood Ranch
“Forget the DJ ~ These guys are the real deal! As a musician myself, I’m hard to impress but Vikki & Bill are Top Professionals whose talent and energy will bring your event to life. Nothing will ruin a party faster than bad music. These guys made our night spectacular. Vikki has a unique vocal ability to sound just like the artist, and Bill truly sings that guitar. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about it and the venue manager wants to hire them for his future events. Thanks guys. You made the night.” — Dee Trussell, Event Coordinator
“Thank you so much for doing such an outstanding job for our event. You two are the best duo in the Tampa Bay area. The variety of music was great and you kept the dance floor full all night. The range you have in your beautiful voice is impressive! Everyone here keeps talking about you and can’t wait til we have you back again. We’ll definitely be checking the calendar and looking to book you again!” – Laurie Doles, Event Coordinator
“We are so glad we hired you for our company holiday party. The music was awesome and everyone loved it. You played such a great variety that everyone could enjoy. I love how you got people dancing. It was a perfect night. I have heard nothing but compliments since I got back to the office on Monday.” — Edith Sterling, Admin.Asst., Florida Design Consultants. Inc.
“I am so impressed with these two! Not only did our guests love them and request for them to come back again for other events, but they played an outdoor space by the pool and you wouldn’t have even noticed there was only two of them. They filled the area with sound. Both were very well dressed for the occasion, they look great, sound great, and got the crowd going. Vikki even got out and did the electric slide [cupid shuffle/wobble] with my guests. Very engaging and very professional. They sound exactly like their demo videos. I was not only happy, but beyond impressed and will definitely be hiring them in the future. Event planner and 100+ guest approved!” — Susan Edwards, Events Planner, Esplanade of Tampa, FL
“Kaleidoscope Band is the perfect duo for a wedding! Vikki and Bill performed at my son’s wedding and they were outstanding! I would high recommend them! Vikki’s voice is beautiful and Bill’s guitar skills are fantastic! The wedding took place in a backyard setting and the sound was amazing! They are very adaptable to any venue. The playlist was great and everyone at the wedding seemed to enjoy them very much! They kept our guests very entertained! Some of our guests loved them so much they took their cards to book future engagements of their own. I would definitely use them again in the future for any event or entertaining I might do! I give them a Five-Star Rating!” — Lynda W., Palm Harbor, FL
“Kaleidoscope Band did a great job playing for my wife’s 60th birthday party. They played the music we wanted to hear, and kept the dance floor packed all night with a great sound. They are very easy to work with and did everything we asked. Being a musician myself, I have high standards and wanted to book only the best for my family and friends. Kaleidoscope delivered!” – Rocky Pinera, Tampa, FL
“Kaleidoscope was the perfect duo to play at my 30th birthday party. They had a great selection of songs and their energy was amazing! They got the crowd going and everyone had a great time! I would definitely recommend Kaleidoscope Band for any event!” — Kara B., Apollo Beach, FL
“Kaleidoscope Band recently performed for two important company events and they were simply outstanding. Vikki has a world-class voice and a confident, happy style; and Bill is an accomplished guitarist with great back-up singing. They performed at a formal event at the Dali Museum where attendees were in suits and dresses and played jazz and night club staples. And the next night they seemed like a completely different, yet awesome band, as we entertained our clients in an open-air, beach-themed environment (at the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel). Kaleidoscope Band can play contemporary and can play island grooves. Highly recommend this duo.” — Zac Fritz, Chief Revenue Officer, Health Integrated, Tampa, FL
“Here it is in a nutshell: Vikki and Bill wowed a crowd of 150 people! Our event was a Luau and both sang a few Hawaiian songs, but the variety of songs kept everyone out on the dance floor. Laughter, smiles and lots of dancing! That’s just what a festivity should be – and it was thanks to “Kaleidoscope Duo”! We saw people just stop right in the middle of the dance floor and stop just to listen to them, as though they were at a concert! Vikki communicated with us throughout the 6 months prior to the event. Just touching base with us on their repertoire of songs and customizing it to our event. Vikki is a “songbird” and Bill is not to shabby when it comes to singing some “Santana” songs either! They came early and set up and were right on time with their first song. They are friendly gentle people who have such a gift , no wonder they’re sought after for events! We are hoping to schedule them again next year for an event and have already given out 3 of their business cards to guests who are thinking of hiring them for different associations. Look no further – if you want your party/event to be a success, come rain or shine – HIRE THEM!” — Nancy Nicklas, Event Coordinator, Stonehedge On The Hill Community, Tarpon Springs, FL
“You guys are great! Thanks for making my 60th birthday party so special! I love the fact that not only do you sound great, even at low volumes, but that you have such a wide repertoire of music that you can play. It can be anything from a funk evening to an old time rock and roll evening. And not just the music, it’s the attitude as well. You bring on the Fun with a capital “F”! You guys are true professionals! Cheers!” — Morgan F., Dunedin, FL
“Kaleidoscope played for The Tampa Club recently for a member dining event and was a smash hit with our members. Vikki and Bill were fabulous to work with, eager to please and put on a great show. I have worked with many bands and entertainers over many years, including some nationally known acts and Kaleidoscope was a joy to have in our house. A great time was had by all and much of that was due to Vikki’s efforts to make sure the music selections, volume and performance fit the crowd. Their versatility and attention to such details are why we want them back!!” — Bill Rice, GM/COO, The Tampa Club, Tampa, FL
“I have used Vikki and Bill of Kaleidoscope a few times now for our catered parties. Not only are they very talented in Vikki’s singing abilities, but Bill on guitar and Steve on steel pan played their instruments as seasoned professionals. My latest event, April 16, 2016, they were so impressive that everyone at the party wanted to know who they were to use at their events. I will only use Kaleidoscope for any event needing live band entertainment. They will not disappoint.” — David L., Lakewood Ranch, FL
“It was great working with Vikki and Bill. They have a positive attitude and wonderful personalities. Our residents really enjoyed their music, and danced until the end. We look forward to having them back and would recommend them to anyone.”
– Gary Farley, Tampa Bay Golf & Country Club, San Antonio, FL
“Kaleidoscope performed at our corporate annual banquet recently. The combination of their musical talent, showmanship and positive energy was so engaging.

Definitely recommend!” — Mary McDonald, CFC, Inc., Largo, FL

Vikki has an amazing voice (and is gorgeous). Billy’s vocals are awesome and plays the guitar like nobody’s business!

“Kaleidoscope is awesome!! They have played once a month at The Clearwater Yacht Club for (over) 7 years now and I am more and more impressed with their music every time. Vikki has an incredible voice. She can sing just about anything. Bill is fantastic with the guitar. Their repertoire of music is endless and they are more than willing to learn new music for you and are very accommodating with whatever requests we have. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a great evening of music and song.” – Marcia N., Clearwater, FL
“I can’t say enough about this 2 piece band…They were professional, accommodating..quality of their performance was the best I ever heard… I would definitely hire them again…Everyone at the party just loved them.. You won’t be disappointed….Loved, Loved, Loved them…” — Anna L., Sarasota, FL
“We couldn’t be more happy with the performance of the Kaleidoscope band for our Dinner/Dance on April 23rd! Their sound was professional and Victoria has an awesome voice and a dynamic stage presence. The guests are still talking about it. I will definitely book them again in the near future.” — Linda R., Tampa, FL
Kaleidoscope’s wide repertoire offers something for everybody, with a wide variety of songs from exciting dance tunes to rock hits, beautiful ballads, reggae favorites, oldies to more current hits. We can set an intimate mood, a carefree vibe, a foot-tapping jam or pump it up and fill the dance floor.
Kaleidoscope can also be expanded into a 3-pc. We are happy to add steel drums by our favorite “pan-man”, Steven Krawczyn, for a lively island experience. Whatever your needs and budget, Kaleidoscope is ready to help create a fun, entertaining atmosphere for you.
Vikki and Billy Lorentzen have been performing together in Tampa Bay, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and the Central Florida area (and before that, Los Angeles) for over 23 years.
