Levinstone started out in the year 2000 as the new Rock and Roll project of Joe Nazarowski. Members include Joe Nazarowski (writer/musician/vocals), Elisa Nazarowski (back-up vocals), Dave Watson (guitarist), James Trace (keyboardist), Dennis Sanchez (bassist/vocals), Constance Day (back-up vocals/guitarist), Michael Leisure (drummer). Levinstone has a rock-a-billy meets metal look – pompadours and long hair are the norm.
Writing songs for the last 20 years, Joe Nazarowski has a plethora of songs, and on their soon to be released record, A Proper Box of Fireworks, Levinstone will share their songs with the world. The project is a multi media CD/DVD in one with ten studio songs on one side and three videos including “Julie”, “Nameless Kings”, and “Witch” as well as a documentary on the origin of Levinstone and from where the songs came on the other side. Levinstone is eclectic pop-rock a la Green Day, Pink Floyd and the Cocteau Twins with some Ozzy thrown in. They also have a poetic story oriented flavor a la The Doors that makes this music truly “uncanny rock and roll”.
