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 Steel Band was the perfect choice for an Under the Sea themed receception that we hosted in Newport for close to 500 people. He was amazingly professional in every way and incredibly talented. His song choices were spot on for our needs. I would hire ITSB again in a heartbeat for any event that calls for a steel drum band.

Gregg was great to work with. He kept in communication with me all throughout the planning process. Contracting was simple, and the price was very reasonable. He set up on time, and the music he played set all the guests in a good mood right away, transporting us immediately to St. Thomas or some such place! I would definitely recommend Island Time Steel Band!
