My teenage sons put it best, "rockin' bass line, great instrumentals and superb vocals." Tonight the group consisted of a bass guitar, keyboards, switchboard, drum set and vocalists. The group drew in the audience, seemingly becoming part of... More

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.
