About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Mix up a rum punch, fire up your tiki torches, and kick off your shoes - it's time to let the Island Time Steel Band do what we do best: make you feel like you are on vacation! Steel Drummers Gregg Charest and Aaron Cote are ready to perform for your event - With more than 36 years of combined performance experience under their belts, Gregg and Aaron simply EXIST to bring a cool, relaxed vibe to your event: backyard celebrations, cocktail parties, wedding ceremonies and more. The Island Time Steel Band can perform any genre, but our sound is heavily influenced by traditional Caribbean Island Music infused with the spirit and rhythm of Roots Reggae and Rock. Gregg and Aaron can perform either as a soloists, or in their incredibly popular duo format using custom recorded bass and drum tracks to fill out the sound. Tell us you want to pump up the party and we'll bring our Bass player and drummer along! No other steel band does what we do, and our outstanding client reviews reflect the energy we bring to you during a performance. We specialize in creating a vibe, and maintaining the energy your events needs, whether laid back Yacht Rock, or upbeat Dancehall hits. Your beach party isn't limited to purely acoustic music, by the way - we can rock a little harder with Gregg's nearly silent generator. This is an add-on option to be requested in advance. Please contact us to discuss your event and how we can contribute to its' success. Find us on iTunes or Spotify, and if you love what you hear, send us a message today!

Private PartyReviewed on August 1, 2020From Topsfield, MA

Gregg was great to work with and the guests all loved the performance and are still raving about it. I would absolutely recommend him. It definitely set the vibe for an outdoor pool event.

No words for how absolutely awesome they were! Gregg and the band were the utmost professionals and music was on point. Made the party! Thank you!!

WeddingReviewed on August 21, 2020From Warwick, RI

Gregg was a joy to deal with. He was able to accommodate all of our needs. Any song we asked him to play he did, and if he didn't have the music, he found it for us. Highly recommend Gregg and Island Time Steel Band to anyone who needs a steel drummer.
