    Hi everyone! I really want a steel drum band to play at my cocktail reception, but it is $600 for 1 hour at Sandals resorts. For those who had a steel drum band - especially one at a Sandals - is it worth the $$$?

    From what I have seen on the internet it looks awesome and I feel like we will regret it if we don't get one. Any advice would really help!!

      Eh...spend the money...you're only getting married once (I hope)!!!! ;-)

      Plus you and Shawn can have your first dance to it. You should get some steel drum music for the AHR!!

        I really wanted a Steel Band too, but couldn't bring myself to pay the $600 fee. The wedding only lasts 20 minutes and they wouldn't allow me to have them for a half hour instead.

        While I think the price is high, I think you should splurge if you think it's worth it. I never saw anyone use one during the 12 days I was at SGOR. I did hear the trio though and thought they were really good. How much do they charge for the trio? I think it may be less...

          I think the trio is cheaper - maybe $250/hour.

          I think I am going to get them to play during the 1 hour cocktail reception. I would love if they could play during the ceremony, but $600 for 20 minutes is ridiculous.

          Hopefully the $600 is worth it.

            I say go for it!!! I think we all have those things that we splurged on for our weddings, and just how many people do you know that have gotten married in Jamaica, let alone had a steel drum band play at their reception?!?

              If i was you i would go with the trio during the cocktail hour. it seems more practical and you guest will love it as they mingle around. I think it is a better idea all around. $600 foe 20min is outragous!!
              Live every day like the next will never come.
