    Cabomax/The Twins are a fun band that play everything from Gypsy Kings and salsa to pop. We ended up using The Twins because we had 50 people and it was perfect. The Twins are literally twins, one plays the keyboard and the other plays the guitar. I thought they were going to show up with just their instruments, so I was very impressed when they were set up with an entire stage with equipment, lights, the whole nine yards. They were set up before the ceremony even started, so even though they didn't play until about 3 hours in, they were ready to go so the transition was seamless.

    Not only were The Twins great, but they were affordable at $650 an hour with a 3 hour minimum. Cabomax is a full band, I think they add another guitarist and drums, and they are only $850 an hour with a 3 hour minimum. I have heard that Cabomax would be great for 100 or more people, but thought they might overwhelm my group of 50, which is why we ended up just doing The Twins.

    They have a website at www.cabomax.com that has some demos and their playlist. I will say the demos don't really do them justice - my hubby was afraid they were going to be cheesy - which they weren't at all - they totally read the crowd and played what we wanted to hear and had everyone dancing - even the non-dancers!

    Still in the process of writing my review, but I will say The Twins are an A+

      Wow- that looks like so much fun! I was pretty stuck on the DJ idea, but after checking out their website, hmmm...That looks pretty fun! Thanks for the info.

          We ended up having the mariachis for the ceremony and cocktail hour and then had our ipod for dinner and The Twins for dancing - just to kind of mix it up a bit and to save money. The other benefit of having The Twins was we were able to use all of their equipment, etc.. to plug our ipod into so it sounded really great!

            Thank you for sharing The Twins with us! As soon as I read your post, I emailed them to see if they had the date open. They got back to me within 24 hours, and they do! So, now I am checking with the resort to make sure all will be okay. They quoted me at 750 an hour, so a graciously asked for the 650 price. We'll see how that goes!
            Dinner is from 6:00-7:00, so I am thinking of booking them from 7:00-11:00pm. What do you think? How long did you have them for dancing?

            Thanks again! Oh yeah, January 19th, 2007 is my big day, and the wedding is at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Resort.

              So what kind of music do the twins play? Can you tell me some of the songs that they played at your wedding? Sounds like fun but not sure what type of music it is.

                I just received a quote from my coordinator that was actually lower than $650 for the Twins.

                So I am guessing that they definitely negotiate.

                  I think we had The Twins from 8:00 - 11:00. We had dinner from 6:30 - 8:00 (which also included the firedancers and was supposed to include our first dance) and just made a play list that we plugged into their equipment (or someone did, it wasn't me)!

                  To be honest, I can't really remember what all kinds of music they played.... But, I am told they played everything and have just been hearing again from my coworkers about how great "The Twins" were! I told them things we didn't want to hear and then I think they just kind of read the crowd and what everyone was liking. I had told them we weren't going to be a big dancing group and I think every single person was dancing the ENTIRE time they played. I had to beg to get someone to sit down with me!

                  I think our $650 included tip and everything, which I didn't think was bad, so I didn't even attempt to negotiate.....

                  Sorry for the delay in my response, I have had computer issues and haven't been online in a while!
