Dizzy's Club

Dion Parson & 21st Century Band

With drummer Dion Parson, saxophonist Ron Blake, trumpeter Melvin Jones, pianist Carlton Holmes, steelpannist Victor Provost, and sabar drummer/percussionist Alioune Faye.

Grammy Award-winning drummer and composer Dion Parson has now been leading the stellar 21st Century Band for 21 years. Together with saxophonist Ron Blake (of the legendary Saturday Night Live Band), Parson formed 21st Century Band in 1998 to showcase the music of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It has since developed an innovative sound that mixes Virgin Islands traditions, such as Quelbe, and Caribbean infusions, like reggae, calypso, soca, mento, ska, zouk, steel pan, chutney, and funk, with New Orleans and African overtones. This popular group sells out Dizzy’s Club every year, and we’re excited to welcome them back for three nights during Caribbean Heritage Month.
