Reel Ting Steel Drum Band Performs at Cheeca Lodge Wedding During Tropical Storm Bonnie

Reel Ting Steel Drum Band Performs at Cheeca Lodge Wedding During Tropical Storm Bonnie

On July 22nd, 2010, The Reel Ting braved the weather and performed during Tropical Storm Bonnie at the Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada, Florida Keys. The event was a Tropical Wedding with the Reel Ting Steel Drum performing the Ceremony Music, Cocktail Hour Music and at the Wedding Reception.

The prelude to the Ceremony began on the beach grounds at the Cheeca Lodge in their lush Gardens area, surrounded by the famous Crossing Palms. The ceremony included two, Steel Tenor Steel Drums/Pans and a Concert Flute. The guests were treated to a prelude concert featuring songs such as Yellow Bird, Island in the Sun and Day Oh’. As the processional bridal party arrived they we serenaded by songs like the “Cannon in D” and “Somewhere over the Rainbow”. The Ceremony recessional song included, “Could this Be Love” by Bob Marley. The
Ceremony ended with beautiful weather and sunshine.

The Cocktail Hour began shortly after the Ceremony with the instrumental sounds of the Reel Ting. The cocktail hour was located on the veranda deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The weather cooperated and the appetizers’ were served under the moon lit Ocean and a beautiful night seemed to be on tap for this gorgeous couple from Atlanta, Georgia.

As the cocktail hour matriculated into the wedding reception, the party got started as the Conga line formed and the guest were singing and dancing to the Caribbean sounds of Reel Ting. The children got involved in singing, dancing and playing George Pollis’s Steel Drum to their favorite song “Hot, Hot Hot”. As the Wedding reception was winding down, a 50 MPH wind gust presented itself and the Conga line was caught off guard. Suddenly the heavens opened up and rain began, however the bridal party remained dancing!!! Hats off to a wonderful celebration at the Cheeca Lodge!

Here’s what the Bride had to say about Reel Ting’s performance:

George,

Thanks so much to you and the band at our Cheeca Lodge wedding and
reception. It was wonderful. Our guests are still talking about it and the way that you all
interacted with them. It was perfect. I could not have asked for more.

My best to you,
~ Lindy Davis
