Island Time Steel Band was awesome! Highly recommend these guys. I requested a full band and they came through with 2 steel drums, percussion, bass, and drums. Our event was at the New England Aquarium and even after attendees headed inside when the aquarium opened, they still continued to play with just as much enthusiasm as when they first started for just the few people that were handing out in the tent. We will definitely hire them if we are ever back in the Boston area.

Gregg was awesome. He brought such fun to our evening, playing a tasteful mix of music and keeping our crowd entertained. He was quick to set up, even entertained some questions from guests about his set up. We will definitely be reaching out to use Gregg for some point in our CBI Wedding Weekend.

They were the perfect band to kick off our event!! They were personable; played popular songs with their own take and the crowd loved them. They brought a Party/Vacation feel to the event. Wish they had played more!!!

Gregg and his team were responsive and professional. They played for 3 hrs for a wedding and were the hit of the party! Gregg also handled the sound for the ceremony microphone, that they have and will set up. Thank you guys for playing for us! Can’t wait to have another party! BEST Steel pan band in the area!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 7, 2020From Westerly, RI

Gregg from the very beginning was amazing to work with. We booked with our wedding with him prior to covid, then I cancelled, then rebooked for an elopement then wound up having an actually wedding. through this entire ordeal Gregg was in constant contact with us, checking in. That speaks volume to his character! The music, & performance was great! I had no idea what to pick for songs and Gregg really helped at navigating this whole process. we had a lot of guests who commented on how great they sounded. A family friend even wants to book Gregg for his daughters wedding next year.

WeddingReviewed on August 26, 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.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 27, 2020From Newton, MA

Gregg was absolutely wonderful. I planned a birthday dinner with another couple (physically distanced of course) and had Gregg entertain in the driveway. He is talented, very accommodating, and a delight to be around. In fact, his music was so awesome, all the neighbors came by to listen, dance, and enjoy. Thanks to Gregg, we had a great celebration dancing in the driveway and enjoying his steel drum island music. Can't wait to hire him again to get a night away from covid and have fun. He was great!!!!!! Sharon H. Newton

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 4, 2019From Holden, MA

We had a great experience with Gregg for our wedding reception. He is very professional and quick to respond to any texts/emails. He is a good guy that clearly loves what he does. Making the customer happy is his obvious goal. He helped us make our wedding day so special. He went the extra to learn the older music we requested. We highly recommend him. Our guests commented on how much they enjoyed his performance. 5 stars.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 20, 2019From Dennis, MA

The amazing steel drum music performed by Greg from Island Time Steel Band really set the mood for my daughters wedding. Steel drum music was played during the cocktail reception and during dinner. My daughter had a nautical theme wedding 7/20/19 on Cape Cod and the upbeat, fun, music was perfect! The steel drums have a" happy and upbeat" sound that makes you want to "move and sway to the music." Greg was so accommodating, from my initial contact and is very professional. If you are looking for Steel Drum music - look no further - Island Time Steele Band is AWESOME! I will absolutely hire Island Time Steel Band again.

Island Time Steel Drum Band was exactly what I was looking for. Gregg was professional and talented. He played the music for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, our guests really enjoyed the music and remarked to me afterward that it was the perfect music! We would not hesitate to hire him again and are in fact looking for the next occasion!

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

Community EventReviewed on August 24, 2018From Cape Cod, MA

We had a wonderful evening thanks to Gregg. He arrived on time and he was easy going about set up. Gregg played the full two hours with just a short break. His music put us "in a party mood" I would certainly recommend him to anyone and even have him back for a repeat performance.
