Does anyone have any recommendations for a steel pan band in the Cancun Riviera Maya area for my June 7th welcome dinner  We dragged our feet making this decision and now the house band is booked the night of our welcome dinner.  Our hotel wedding coordinator recommended  another vendor but they are $2500 for 90 minutes. 

 

Thank you all in advance for your help :)

    I'm using Party Planet Productions for my mariachi--perhaps they also provide steel drums? I know some of the wedding planners on here would know for sure.

      Don't feel bad the steel pan band that I booked months ago CANCELED due to "personal reasons" for my welcome reception on June 6th so now we are just using a regular band. Such a bummer I was so upset and juan the wedding coordinate was searching high and low for me to find one and had no luck for june 6th :(

       

      I don't know any others as I reached out to 3-4 on my own and never heard back from anyone! Good luck.

      Anel informed me that the other steel pan band they could book for me is going to be about $3,000 for 2 hours.  I am not comfortable spending that much money for the welcome dinner.  I thought about downloading the steel pan music instead.  I normally wouldn't care but my fiancee just told me we are buying a freaking boat on Saturday for our lake house!!!  I'm like umm okay…… I guess we have a secret money tree!!

      I am going to check this out.  Thank you for the suggestion.

        No problem! I was looking at the list of entertainment provided by my wedding venue (via outside company) and they offer a steel drum soloist and duet for around $520 and $600 respectively.  Here is their wedding catalog.  Perhaps if you reach out to them, they could tell you what company they use.

        What has your experience been with party planet productions? I want to use them for a few things but my ex wedding coordinator had bad things to say about them. I wonder now considering she is my ex planner for a reason, if she was telling the truth, Would like to know your thoughts!

         

        thanks
