Southern Palms have a live 'open air' steel band on every Sunday lunch time but advisable to get there early as all the seating is usually taken.

The same steel band Brett referred to also play at Southern Palms on Thursday evenings from about 8pm.

The Carib Beach Bar at Worthing has live music some nights - often Fridays but check locally.

Mr Impact plays at Oistins on Mondays usually.

There are lots of others. If you Google What's on in Barbados you will find a site which lists all kinds of events - just check close to your dates of travel as some events are added last minute.

If you are on the west coast, you can go to Surfside Restaurant and bar where they also have a Steel Band playing on a stage outside on a Sunday night and you can sit inside or outside next to the beach. It gets very busy so if you want to have a meal it is advisable to book and go early..

You don't say when you are going to Barbados, but if it is at the end of April, it will be the famous Reggae Festival with several events held including Reggae on the Beach at Brandons on the west coast and culminating in Reggae on the Hill at Farley Hill which is a wonderful event.

Plus Holetown Festival the second week of February which includes many live outdoor shows at Surfside and on the street.
