Bona Fide has a strong array of extremely talented musicians and their musical selection was fantastic. They had some good classics sprinkled with newer songs, and all of them were great to dance to. The band members are very personable and... More

Went to bbq at Kaibo and Bona Fide played a wonderful mix of classic, modern and reggae tunes to add flavour to the meal. Audience participation was encouraged on this beach location and rounded of a wonderful evening

After hearing and dancing to Bona Fide at Kaibo Beach in April 2015 we hired them to play at our son's wedding. What a GREAT decision! Their music was upbeat, diverse and got everyone up and dancing. Each band member has amazing talent and Isadora is a fantastic lead singer. They are easy to work with and so accommodating. If... More

Was lucky enough to hear Bona Fide at The Wyndham Reef Resort. What incredibly talented musicians they were and a great night of entertainment they provided along with our meal. If your visiting Cayman, make sure you catch these guys!

Bona Fide provided the music for the Kaibo Beach Barefoot BBQ. The lead singer has a wonderful voice, the band was solid and the song selection was great for everyone. They were a welcome addition to the bbq.

Listening to BonaFide at Kaibo is always a highlight of our trip. The kids love dancing in the sand and the band plays quite a range of music from Disney's "Let it Go" to Journey and Jimmy Buffet. We had such a great time that we are looking forward to returning tomorrow!

My favorite Cayman-music groups. I've always loved Hi-Tide sunsets and water, buffet and drinks were our highlight of the night!

Just returned from our evening at Kaibo Barefoot Beach BBQ where we thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic vibe and energy of Bona Fide. 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
