Level 10 Band has been nominated by the Los Angeles Music Awards for Best New Independent Jazz Artist of the Year!
Voted # 1 Jazz Band in the Tampa Bay area.
Level 10 Band was conceived in the back of a Dodge Caravan one starry night as the keyboard player, Levy DeAndrade, was in the throws of a mid-life crisis. Having experienced all that engineering, producing and playing keys for other peoples’ dreams had to offer, Levy purposed that evening that he would finally bring forth his own dream – a band with members that played music born of experience, talent, and a shameless love of jazz and their respective instruments.
The band took the area by storm when after only a year together, they decimated the competition in a local radio station contest. After winning the title of Tampa Bay’s Best Smooth Jazz Band by CBS Radios in 2009, the requests began pouring in for appearances and performances. Since that time, Level 10 has performed for jazz festivals, city organizations, Carnival Cruise Lines, local jazz clubs, national radio stations, and has appeared on FOX and ABC TV for interviews and live performances. Both Levy’s original compositions and new arrangements of popular songs have been leaders on the jazz charts on CD Baby, Rhapsody and iTunes.
In celebration of their rapid rise to acclaim as an award-winning, underground jazz band, Level 10’s first album was named “Together.” Released in 2009, the CD features original compositions by Levy as well as inspiring arrangements of popular tunes. Their next CD, entitled “Forever” is due to be released in 2010.
