“Danced the night away”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

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 stayed. After dinner, Bona Fide kicked up the energy level and played a wide variety of dance music -- there was something for everyone. We never sat down! The Bona Fide band members were the perfect hosts for what felt like a beach party.

“Bona Fide at the Kaibo Beach Barbeque Tuesday nights”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

We stumbled upon this beach bar by accident after watching the sunset over the North Sound. We had heard music so decided to stop for a drink. 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 must-dos when we visit Grand Cayman annually! The food is very good, the setting very tropical and the music is absolutely wonderful!! The female vocalist has a wonderful voice with a huge range, I am convinced she can sing anything! The whole band plays wonderfully together and they added a horn player this year. They play Reggae, Calypso, Soca, Jimmy Buffet, Bob Marley, and original songs and do them all well. They get the very mixed age crowd up on their feet dancing barefoot in the sand and siging along. My only negative comment would be that they only play from 6p-9p, we would love for them to play later! The band does play at other venues on different nights so it is possible yo hear them on other nights.
