On Tuesday Night we decided to take the water taxi over to Kaibo to enjoy the Beach BBQ and listen to the Band! Talk about high energy and a lot of fun. They did a great mix of every thing Oldies and Island music. Folks really engaged the Limbo was the best.

We stayed at The Reef on the east end and were thrilled to catch Bona Fide playing there on a Monday night. Loved them so much we went to Kaibo the next night to see them. Outstanding variety of songs sung and played by some excellent artist's. Great interaction with the crowd. Liked by all!

We say Bona Fide at the Tuesday night beach barbecue at the Kaibo Beach Bar. They were very entertaining. It was fun to have a sandy beach as the dance floor.

We went to Kaibo Beach Bar & Grille for the Tuesday night barbecue and live music. We enjoyed listening to relaxing Caribbean music by Bona Fide during our tasty dinner. It was nice, but since we were there with two 20 year-olds, we planned to leave if the music continued to be "relaxing" during the second set. So glad we... More

That was the first we had ever heard of the beach barbeque held every Tuesday night and the first we had heard the band, Bona Fide. It is now on our list of... More

To start. The restaurant on the beach serves great food on the beach. The band was very entertaining and played multiple styles with passion. Old folks and kids alike were dancing .
