David Levy

David Levy is 15 years old and lives in East Meadow,NY. He picked up his first pair of sticks at 9 years old. Started playing in the school band and fell in love with drumming. He began taking private lessons and started learning drumming from the roots. While in the early years he was taught covers of Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and Soundgarden. While these beats were always helping him get better, he wanted to learn a new style. He discovered pop-punk bands such as blink-182, Green Day, Lit, and New Found Glory. He loved these bands because of the fast drum beats which always keep you on your toes. His major influences are Travis Barker, Tre Cool, Kyle Burns, and Taylor Hawkins. As the years progressed he started getting very serious into drumming and was playing every single day working on just about everything. He was still playing in the school band, and taking private lessons at home when one day he got a phone call. The call was from Alex Schiffer about starting a band. He said yes and was very excited to start. They had there first practice in his backyard covering many songs from Linkin Park to blink-182. The band was David, Alex and Morti and they decided on the name The Wednesday. Since then David and The Wednesday have been playing shows on Long Island,New York and are looking into touring more of the east coast and recording some tracks. In October 2009 David got sponsored by Shine Custom Drums and Percussion. He only plays there drums now and is using there "Definition Series" kit. When he first heard about Soultone he went on youtube to listen to the sound. The sound of the first crash made him jump out of his seat and just say "Wow!" He looks into playing Soultone Cymbals exclusively at shows in the future. As of Feb. 2010 David & The Wednesday are finishing up a few last shows before they go into the studio to record their first EP. They recently added Nicole Paternoster as their new vocalist. The EP is scheduled to release in June 2010, with a summer tour to follow. March 2010, The Wednesday disbanded and the members decided to creat a new project called Dance Hall Drama, they decided they wanted to go leave the punk scene and hop to the pop-rock culture. On June 19th Dance Hall Drama released "Never Ending Party - EP". It is currently available on iTunes and at Dance Hall Drama shows. During Summer 2010 David & Dance Hall Drama embarked on the Party On Rosalie Drive Tour, it will be making stops throughout the east coast. Dance Hall Drama is growing a large fan base throughout Long Island and the East Coast. It is only a matter of time till you'll start hearing big things about this band.
