Dion Parson & 21st Century Band
"As the next generation of emerging USVI artists, Dion Parson & 21st Century Band is fast becoming the model for musicians from the Virgin Islands. St. Thomas-an amalgam of flavors ranging from soulful melodies to hard-hitting rhythms-demonstrates the technical skills and creativity cultivated from such a lush musical and cultural heritage. Ultimately, St. Thomas is the musical expression of the journey through the diverse history and musical diaspora of the US Virgin Islands, presented in a jazz format with the freedom of interpretation through various improvisation styles." -Dion Parson

This explosive, rhythmic ensemble performs from their new CD, St. Thomas, featuring new Caribbean influenced interpretations of the jazz standard by Sonny Rollins, "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley, and everyones favorite classic "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong, as well as a "kallaloo" of rich new compositions sure to bring you to your feet.
