    I am trying to find a good guitar soloist for the ceremony, a small mariachi trio for the cocktail hour, and a salsa band for the reception.

    If anyone has names and website links to musicians you have found or heard about, can you share?

    Music is such an important part of my wedding and I really want to make the right choice.

    Thank you so much!!

      Where are you having a reception? It's best if you can use local musicians so that you don't have to pay for their travel.

        I am getting married in Playa Del Carmen on Sept 5th. I checked to see if the Balance Band was available but they are already booked. I'm really interested in finding a good salsa band.

        Thanks!

          I don't want know if this will help you. My daughter was married at the Fairmont Mayakoba, north of Playa del Carmen. This is the contact we had for a string trio that played during the ceremony. My understanding was that there were other musicians available, but we wanted classical during the ceremony and used a DJ at the reception. The company is Big Bang Productions, and we were linked through our wedding coordinator at the Fairmont. For what it's worth, we were very pleased with the string trio.

                Everything was perfect! My son in law planned the music, so I'm really not sure about how the selection went. We went with the DJ because, at home, people know the area bands. It's not the same for a destination wedding, and a bad band can kill a party faster than anything. We also decided that a mariachi could get "old" after an extended length of time. Our setting was more "eco-friendly" than "fiesta," and the trio is right for us. In another setting, the guitar soloist or mariachi may be the way to go.

                One thing, a friend of the bride and groom's is a "hobby" DJ, and he did the music for the welcome party. His choices were more "techno," and I think our guests enjoyed that style best. Everyone, young and old, was dancing, and the energy level was high. The DJ probably could have done that, and hindsight is always 20/20.
