The obligatory and perfunctory Lev7 biography... Kevin, Charles and Karsten (whose friends call him Du) have performed together in various incarnations since 2002, having performed 50 to 75 shows each year since as both a cover and original act. Fronted by the charismatic Karsten Durand (vocals, keyboards), and anchored by guitarist Charles Newman and drummer Kevin Caldwell along with Mike Oliver on bass guitar, Level7 strives to be a slightly different live music act. In the age of computer dominated music, Lev7 is about the "playing", with each musician having over 20 years professional experience on their respective instruments. "We do what we do, baby!" is the band's mantra and with each passing performance the band continues to refine an individualistic approach to each style of music we take on, from Disco to Modern Pop and Rock, our songlist is varied and most importantly fun! Each song the band performs is recognizable, familiar and funky but each musician brings his own definitive touches, with an emphasis on musical interplay and improvisation somewhat akin to jazz music. Please come out to a club show or local performance and bring a friend, we would be happy to see you!!
