Need Live Music Suggestions! Reggae Bands?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies-

 

We decided to have a live reggae band play at our reception. Please share your experiences!

 

We're also considering a steel band for the ceremony. But since we might use them for the welcome dinner, we're open to other options like a guitarist or something...

Hi Ladies,

 

I might have a suggestion for you.  First thing, live music is expensive, so I hope you are prepared to open you pocket book!

 

My wedding planner, Denise Taylor's husband is a Raggae artist and producer.  Quick story, we met her in March (our wedding is coming up in November) and she did not mention this at all.  It was by assident I put it together a month later.....by her last name and his video on itunes.  I was downloading raggae music and came accross his music on itunes.  I quickly feel in love with one song, Raggae Street, and included it on a raggae CD we sent with out invitations.  He is really good.....you can Google him and read about his carrer...pretty impressive.  His name is Chockey Taylor and his band would charge around $2000 for 2 hours I think. 

 

If it's entertainment in general you want and something cheaper fits the budget....maybe fire dancers?  They are always awesome to wat and I think you can get them for $250 - 500. 

 

Hope this helps.  Let me know if you want any contact information.

:) Thanks, but I'm not looking for someone with a record deal lol! Just a 5-piece band w/ female vocalist preferably. I'm also in touch with my wedding planner who's given me some suggestions, but thought I'd hear from some brides with 1st hand experience. Also, aware of the cost associated already....Anyone else? Thanks in advance!

Chokey Taylor is fantastic, I've heard him many times.  Also Fab 5, Front Page Band, and Edge Michael.  You can probably do a google search for their contact info :)

Hi mrsrrobinson- I got married at Moon Dance Villas this past July and used The Front Page band for our rehearsal dinner. Although they don't have a female lead, which you are looking for, I would highly recommend them. They were fantastic and had everyone up and dancing for the 3 hours they played. The charged $1k. I have some of their demo songs if you're interested. Just PM me your email address :) Happy planning!!
