    Just wondering if anyone has found a good band that they like... Just getting started on this one, but the on-site coordinator said that although she can recommend a few different groups (guitar solo, trio, even a band) that none of them have demos for us to listen to. As I'm a bit of a music geek, I'd be more comfortable hearing a sample of the groups music before we hire them.
    I think we're looking for a small group that can do salsa, merengue, and other local styles (just not mariachi!).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

      I have a video clip of the Balance Band on my Vimeo site. They do all styles of reception music including lots of salsa and latin flavored dance music. They are top notch. Kind of a large group though.

        Hey, thanks! They sounds really great...bit big, but certainly worth checking out.

                      Sorry -- I'm a little bit late to this thread
                      But I wanted to recommend the band we used for our wedding!

                      I don’t think they have a name... Sol Tomargo also used them for her wedding, and another vendor on here, PlayaWeddings.
                      Jill Kirkland and Victor Espinoza are the husband/wife team that run the band, then there are about two/three others who play in the band as well.

                      They were great! They played while people were being seated, for when I walked down the aisle, during our ceremony and during our cocktail hour, and honestly -- I think they're the only reason people stayed for our cocktail hour! :-)
                      (our resort's service during our cocktail hair was terrible...but Victor and Jill's music kept people happy:-))

                      And they were very reasonably priced!
                      For two sets (45 mins per set), it was about $550 (can't remember exactly...sorry!)

                      Best way to reach them is by e-mail:

                      mexijill@hotmail.com
                      vicmusic_77710@yahoo.com

                      (try e-mail both addresses...Jill is American, so will likely be the one to respond...Victor is her husband and speaks Spanish and a little English...)

                      Good luck -- and if you need any more info on the band, just ask:-)
