    I had the band for my wedding and I LOVED it!! It really made my Jamaican wedding perfect, when the ceremony was over we danced around with champagne and got some really original pictures!! It was expensive... but worth every penny!!

        I am having a major issue on this, It is the one and only thing that my FI has been adamant about that he wants! We were going to go for 2 hours then then increase happened, so he was like well I at least want it for 1 hour, now that its only 6 weeks away and we have had to pay our taxes hes like well I am cutting it we don't have the money, so I think my mom and I are going to do it for him as a surprise. We are doing the free cocktail hour(this just come with rum punch and fruit punch) from 5-6 (our ceremony is at 4) at the ceremony location that way people aren't just standing around waiting for pics and I think I am going to have them play during that time!

          For those of you who have rented the steel drum band for one hour, did you have them play during the ceremony and for another half hour after? or did you get them for an hour after the ceremony during champagne toast or coctail hour? My wedding is at 11:00 am and would like to have either champagne or appetizers for an hour after and unsure about what to do.

            We had them for our recent wedding and to be honest I can barely even remember what they played after the 2 songs I specifically asked for! My mind was in such a cloud!! I just wanted to make it to the gazebo without bawling!

            When we had spoke to Chandlyn about what to play I asked for the Canon in D while I walked down the aisle. But they played it as the whole wedding party came down! I guess I should have clarified that a little better. They also started playing the last procession song way early! After that, things were a blur!! I had intentions of tipping but after the ceremony I was swept away to take pics!

            We are thrilled we had them as it certainly put the jamaican flavor in the wedding and our guests totally enjoyed them!

                Does anyone have an updated song list for the Steel Drum band?  I noticed there were some links to other forum discussions but the links are broken.

                  Yes I'd be interested as well if someone has a playlist on hand that they don't mind sharing. Preferably reggae and calypso.

                    Any recent reviews of ROR steel drum band? I'm considering having them play at our wedding in July.
