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!
Gregg and Aaron 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. Available as a duo, or as a soloist!
What to Expect
We create a VIBE unlike any other Steel Band.
Island Time Steel Band performs energetic instrumental music to get the party moving, and keep people on the dance floor. Alternately, the whole event can be completely relaxed so that your guests feel like they are on vacation. We want time to drift away, to bring you to your happy place. We want to put you on Island Time.
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!
Additional Booking Notes
Island Time Steel Band typically provides our own sound system, good for events up to 500 people. No access to electricity on the beach? We have our own nearly silent generator to keep the tunes flowing!
ITSB can also work with your event staff if sound and lighting systems are required. Send a request today and see how we can help!

Influences & Inspiration
The Island Time Steel Band has few boundaries when it comes to repertoire, and we often challenge ourselves to think outside the box when it comes to choosing material. Our influences are nearly impossible to map because our natural musical curiosity keeps us exploring. We spend a lot of time performing Tropi-rock, Yacht-rock, Reggae, and Pop, and have a deep song catalogue to keep your guests entertained.
ITSB is completely self sufficient and can provide everything we need to be successful, including a tent for the band, generator for power, and more.
