Long in demand by a wide variety of artists (Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett, The Moody Blues), this percussion master moves "center stage" with his own headlining show, Paul McDermand and the Island Time Band.
Enhanced by tasteful orchestration, Paul's joyful, lilting steel drums and smooth, rich vibraphone arouse, inspire and carry every listener away on a sweeping instrumental excursion. From the Latin fire of "Caravan" to the serene beauty of "A Summer Place," - with a surf medley and a bit of 3-part vocal harmony tossed in for good measure - your audience will embrace each destination as Paul's ensemble canvasses the broad expanse of popular music, with an island twist.
