The Island Time Steel Band has one goal: To make all your guests feel like they are on vacation! Solo Steel Drummer Gregg Charest is ready to play your event - With 20 years as a performer under his belt, he started the Island Time Steel Band to bring a cool, relaxed vibe to your backyard celebration, cocktail party, or wedding ceremony. The Island Time Steel Band performs many genres, but our sound is heavily inspired by traditional Caribbean Island Music infused with the spirit and rhythm of Reggae and Latin Jazz.

Gregg performs primarily as a soloist, with recorded bass and drum tracks to fill out the sound.

The band can also exist in other familiar formats:
DUET Steel Pan with one other instrument (may be based on availability, but would likely include a second steel drummer, Guitar or Piano)
TRIO Steel Pan with Bass and Latin Percussion
QUARTET Steel Pan with Woodwind (Sax and Flute), Bass, and Percussion

We are available for Cocktail Receptions, Birthday Parties, Weddings in/outdoors. Island Time Steel Band is relatively portable and can even play in many locations without electricity!

Please contact us to discuss your event and how we can contribute to its' success. The Island Time Steel Band: Live Music from the heart of the Islands!

Island Time is a very talented musician, performer and entertainer! His music selection for cocktails, dinner and apres dinner was spot on. Everyone I spoke to last night comment on how outstanding the music was. Gregg has a very relaxed but professional manner to him. I would wholeheartedly recommend him

Overall it couldn’t have gotten any better. Over 300+ people in attendance and everyone loved him. Gregg is VERY talented and everyone was raving about him after he left. He was so professional and fun. Five starts all around. So easy to work with, easy set up and break down. I highly recommend!

We hired Island Time to play at an engagement party that we hosted last weekend (at the recommendation of a friend). His performance set the tone for a wonderful evening. His music provided great background ambience that made the party feel more fun and festive. Gregg also was extraordinarily professional. He confirmed everything by email; He arrived very early to set up and get organized; and he was completely flexible about the amount of time he would play. In short, I couldn't have been more pleased with Island Time. And, I would recommend it (and Gregg) without hesitation.
