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.
When Dwight isn’t playing as a TTC Subway Musician he can be found teaching, both privately and at St. James Town Youth Centre. You can also find him playing at different venues and carnivals around the city such as the Caribbean Carnival. Dwight has been a TTC Subway Musician since 2006 and can commonly be found playing at Union and Main Street stations.
