DandeMan, You can always count on Crazy Canucks Monday night. Sharks Bar was recently sold and is undergoing extensive renovations and is supposed to be open in November, so hopefully it will be by the time the New Year kicks in. Captain Morgan's has a thing on I think Tuesdays, with local crafts and music. Remember, Punta Rock originated in Dangriga way back in the 70es, the first Punta Rock Band was called "The Turtle Shell Band", and is based in traditional Garifuna music. Since there is a lot more Garifunas in the South, your chances of catching live drumming is greater there then here on the island. But you will be here in high season and hopefully some drumming will be happening then. There are some great websites about Punta Rock!
