The steel drum has always been a part of Dwight Belgrove’s life. His father and some friends formed a band around the time he was born, which lead to his love of the unique instrument. He can be found playing R&B, folk, calypso, jazz, reggae and pop, and his favourite song “Melosian Rhapsody”. Dwight’s main musical influences are from Trinidad, where he lived until 1992, and artists such as Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder.
