The Levin Brothers

tonylevin11

We caught The Levin Brothers at the Iron Horse Music Hall tonight. Rock bassist Tony Levin, known for his brilliant performances with Peter Gabriel and King Crimson, has teamed up with his multi-talented brother, Pete Levin, and an ensemble of great jazz musicians for a contemporary take on 1950's jazz. It was an incredible show from Tony Levin, Pete Levin, Jeff Siegel and Erik Lawrence. Photos, videos, review and commentary will be posted soon. Stay tuned and thank you for an amazing performance!

Fairfax, VA -- In the period between American Bandstand and MTV, several shows tried to bring rock n' roll to televison. In the wake of Elvis Presley and the Beatles' debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, '60s series like Hullabaloo, Shindig and The Music Scene featured rock and pop performers. But it wasn't until The Midnight Special premiered on August 19, 1972, that rock n' roll found its own home on the air.

This September, the TV DVD archivists at StarVista Entertainment/Time Life will bring consumers back to the '70s for the seminal, groundbreaking live music TV show on DVD, featuring extensive bonus features! THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION, available exclusively online at MIDNIGHTSPECIALDVDS.COM beginning August 12, 2014 will be released in a beautifully-packaged 11-disc set, featuring nearly 5 hours of specially-produced bonus features and a 32-page collector's book.

You probably know their story. They were a college men's a cappella group, very popular on Indiana University campus and in the a cappella competition circuit. Then they graduated and went their separate ways. Six years later, in 2007, one of the members posted on Youtube their 1998 live performance of a very amusing "12 Days of Christmas." Seven million hits later, Atlantic Records came calling. The video is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Fe11OlMiz8 It's now at over 12 million hits.
