reggae band - Montego Bay

Recommended Posts

Hi..i thought i could take a break after finally picking a place to have the wedding, but apparently there are a lot of other things to do! One of which is finding some music, we're hoping to find a reggae band for the reception and maybe switch it up with and IPOD or DJ as well. Any suggestions for a reggae band would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks

No rest for the weary! It's one thing after another with all this wedding planning. We too are getting married in Montego Bay (Feb 7, 2009). I've heard of the "Fab Five" but haven't found much imformation on them. I'm in the process of hiring a wedding planner in MoBay, so once I find out what the options are I'll pass them along. We're looking for Steel Pan and a Reggae Band. If you find anything, please let me know & I'll do the same.

Best of luck!

You should check with the resort and see if they have someone they recommend. I know our resort and several of the others use "regulars". You should also check the outside vendor policy.

 

We had the option of the Mento Band - a traditional folk music band or a steel drum band. Prices ranged from $150 an hour for the mento to $300-$650 for the steel drums. You might get better rates going through the hotel as well.

We're not getting married in a resort, we're getting married in a villa. So our vendor options are wide open. I'm hoping to have several recommendations from our wedding planner once we get to that stage.

We're using Chokey Taylor, who our hotel recommended. They are very pricey (more than our photographer!) but worth it, in my opinion. They gave me their playlist and its a wide mix of reggae and various US hits. They also have some stuff on itunes which lets you hear them, at the very least. Let me know if you want their contact info...

I am also getting married in Montego Bay and am looking for a Reggae band my resort recommended the below I don't know much about them but where I do I will comment

 

Fab Five -

 

Byron Lee Band - I bought the CD in Jamaica this is supposed to be a famous band there I honestly wasn't too impressed they have a website but I can't find it right now

 

Bare essentials-

 

Pace band - YouTube - PACE @ work PACE @ play - The refered this band because I wanted a band like soul to soul but with a woman singer as well

 

the20band - my resort said they use this band a lot and everyone loves them but then she refered the Pace band instead so I have no clue what that means

 

Soul to Soul- I saw them when I was in Jamaica doing a sight trip I LOVED them it was a 5/6 guy singers and a band they were animated and played local music and American classics they put on a great show but they do not have a female singer and I really wanted one

 

I also heard when I was in Jamaica well at least in MB 1 guy owns like all bands that the resorts use like a little mob or monopoly weird right I don't know how true that is good luck and let all of us MB brides keep this thread going in case we find new bands, websitse, cds, see in person, etc so we can all have great entertainment and the more info the better choice we can make

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
