Quick Question Please

Recommended Posts

We were quoted $350/hour for the steel band. Is this correct? It seems unreasonably high to me, and I have about 10 days to make a decision. Sorry, as I know this is a redundant question.

Thank you!

Ok, it's not a big deal (because I'm only paying for 1 hour), I was just wondering if they're raising their prices across the board.

I think it is still worth it! A steel band is something guests will always remember. I am getting the mariachi band for my Mexi-wedding and it is around $360 for 45 min. I have to have it though.

I can't say for sure but it seems like any type of LIVE entertainment is high. In Puerto Vallarta, a trio is around that price and they have like a 2 or 3 hour minimum.

 

I wanted a steel band...even though I'm in Mexico. I couldn't find one unfortunately. It's just so cheery sounding. Mariachi music kinda drives me batty.

 

I totally would have a steel band play if I were you. That would be so awesome! On a cruise the band let me try my hand at one and it's so fun.

Yikes, it was $250/hour last year, and that was the price quoted to me by Chandlyn so I kind of hope she'll still honour it...! Well, we'll see, I still want it regardless but the $ keep adding up!

Could you make requests Mo?
