    Hey Ladies,
    My fiance is a musician and is in a band. Not sure yet, but it is very possible that they may all go. Do you think the hotel would rent sound equipment and maybe drums to have the band play there?

    We are thinking to reserve the reggae band through the hotel. Wonder if they would "lend" us for a fee the drums and sound system.

    My plans are at the Riu Ocho Rios Jamaica 7/2010.

    Any suggestions?
    Muchas gracias all!

      I think that is a great idea. I don't think there would be aprolem. I would check it out with the WC first and ask what the policy may be. I know that in some resorts they have certain restrictions as ro which musical instruments they will have on site (ie. no trumpets!, but I am sure this won't be a problem , not a big band right!) But I don't there would be any problem, maybe even suggest that they work with the band that is there, so when they need a break your guys could play and the other way around.

        Thanks itfinally here,
        That's a positive note. I'll check.
        So, you're going to Cuba. Ahhh...one destination I want to go to before the US gets in there and makes it too American (i.e Puerto Rico). My family is from PR and though it is a beautiful island, too much like the US. Perkins, Burger King, Mickey D's, etc.

        I think that is why I like Jamaica so much, still very natural to it's history. Ya know?!

        Good luck to you!

          I have to agree with Ebbie475, it is that untouched beauty that completely awaed us. One of the things we found most amazing was the people. Here are a group of people who have next to nothing, struggle with outrageous shortages and they are happy!. They smile at everyone, they are kind and courteous. I (me a woman) rented a drove avehicle there. Well let me tel what stange looks I got because they could not believe a woman on the highway!!! They are funny and welcoming and we were put to shame for attitude towards life ingeneral and reminded of how wastful we are and how much we have to be thankful for. We want to continue to return as often as we can until we see and experience all that Cuba has to offer.
