About
Mix up a rum punch, light the 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 Drummer Gregg Charest is ready to perform for your event - With more than 20 years as a performer under his belt, Gregg started the Island Time Steel Band 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 Reggae and Rock.

Gregg performs primarily as a soloist, with recorded bass and drum tracks to fill out the sound. If you're looking for a little more excitement and texture, Gregg can add more band members! Ask about the Duo (Steel Pan and Guitar, or Percussion), Trio (Steel Pan, Bass, Percussion), or Quartet/Quintet (Steel Pan, Sax/Flute, Guitar/Piano, Bass, Percussion).

New for 2020 – your beach party isn't limited to purely acoustic music. With advancements in generator technology, your party can rock 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. The Island Time Steel Band: Live Music from the heart of the Islands!
