How Much Did You Pay For Your Reggae Band???

Recommended Posts

So I just checked and the band we think we're going to use is $4000/3 hours and then an additional 1500/hour. Does this sound absolutely outrageous or is that about what other people are being quoted for reggae bands (Female Lead Vocalist, Drummer "Lead Male Singer", Bassist, Keyboardist)

I guess expensive is relative...If it is not to much for you, go for it!

I looked into a band and this is no where close to what I was quoted.

the one through the hotel was $500/600 an hour
$500-600 an hour is closer to what I was quoted.

Even though we can afford it, I don't want to pay too much if I don't have to. Do you know the names of the bands for $500/600? Has anyone used them and has feedback? We're looking for a reggae band that plays popular music - we want to make sure that everyone knows the songs and can dance. Our WC sent us a few cd's the other day but this is my fiance's job and he has yet to listen to them. They were all around a similar price range.

Marne, if price is not an issue, Fab 5 is one of the best bands there is. They will play popular music as well. I wish I could use them but they are out of my price range.

I booked the Chokey Taylor band. They have 8 band members and you can listen to some songs on itunes. They can play almost anything you want. Their manager is awesome. She replies to same day emails. I booked the live band for 3 hours and they have a DJ that will play for an hour afterwards. It costs $3200 for a total of 4 hours.
