English term or phrase:very little to spend it on besides lavish weddings featuring Ivo’s band
The limited economic freedom of farmers’ markets meant that the countryside was awash with cash and *very little to spend it on besides lavish weddings featuring Ivo’s band*.
.. I can only assume that employing the services of this band was regarded as being something of an extravagance. CMJ may well be right about Ivo being the band leader — but it might also be the name of a town to which the band belongs.
