Victor Provost

Biography When asked, how long he has been playing the steel drums or “pan” as it is sometimes called Victor Provost’s typical facetious response is “longer than I haven't”.

Provost began his musical journey at the age of 10. Born and raised in the US Virgin Islands, Provost’s interest and subsequent love affair with the steel drums began at the St. John School of the Arts. There, he became a member of the youth steel pan orchestra, Steel Unlimited II, and under the guidance of Mr. Rudy Wells, was able to develop, hone and share his musical gift.

Steel Unlimited dissolved in 1995, and after much encouragement by family, friends and teachers, Provost began his solo career. His first solo performance led to opportunities at various venues including the once Rockefeller owned Caneel Bay Resort and Reichhold Center for the Arts.
