We used this site to purchase our steel drum music.  Its really great quality and much more affordable then hiring a live steel drum band.

 



 

there are quite a few past brides that have used the steel drum band and been very happy with how they played.

 

I don't know if this helps anyone out or not, but we found a site by a man in Florida and he does ALL the traditional wedding music on steel drum and sells it for $6. that's what we did and put it onto a CD and they played it. it was wonderful and exactly what I wanted.  The sound quality is GREAT!!!! and it's a long way from paying $800. I tried to attach a sample here but it won't support uploading an mp3 file. if anyone wants to PM me I can email a sample that way. and like I said, he has all of the standard wedding stuff and in steel band, it sounds beautiful!!

    Thanks! I really wanted the actual band but everything is turning out to be more expensive than I was planning so the band may be one of the things we cut to save some money! This would be a great alternative.

        Noon isn't bad, atleast it's not 10am. What you going to do in between cereemony and reception?

        Just an Idea....... ceremony will be 12:00-12:30 but by the time pics are done and everyone has congraulated you it's more like 1pm or 1:30.... let your guests relax and change and have a cocktail party by the pool or on the beach at like 4:30 or 5pm- it's for an hour- then make way to dinner?

        Some have done wicked excursions, or booking lunches, some have even liked this for a second dress?

        Sometimes it is nice to have a break. Plus your pics are going to be amazing in noon sun!

        Ours is at 4pm, Chandlyn told me that each bride has the wedding gazebo for 1.5hrs for the ceremony. (if they need that time)

                    We used a Jamaican by the name of Roxroy Gough. he did the video for another past bride on this thread and it was gorgeous! his prices are very reasonable and we really liked him. I can pass on the contact info if you like. I think back in 2011 he charged us about $400 and he was there the whole day

                    Yes can you please send me his info?
