Bio

Texas has a music style all its own with blends and variations that stretch beyond the normal limitations of any musical genre. Coming straight out of the heart of Texas is Jack Levitt, a band comprised of four individuals forged together with a common goal: to create original music through their own inspirations. While many bands have their overall unique sound, this foursome applies a subtle spice to each song providing a distinctive flavor making each song an experience onto its own. This alleviates the monotony of each song sounding the same and provides a truly unique listening experience. It is because each member provides such a different influence to this band, that when asked what type of music they play the only truly adequate answer is simply “Texas Music!”

The subtle differences of Jack Levitt can only come from the individuals themselves and their own musical background. Bob Curry has been a singer/songwriter/guitar prodigy on the Texas music scene for almost a decade now and is well known in many Texas venues and even, at times, affectionately referred to as “Coach.” Practically a legend in his humble all-American home town, Yorktown TX, Bob brings a real sense of Texas music with influences from classic country to Johnny Cash to Pearl Jam.

The foundation of any band is in the rhythm; locking the rhythm and melody together is the job of the bass player. For Jack Levitt this role is filled by none other than Lenny Sanchez, a musical mastermind of his own merit. Lenny hails from McAllen TX, where at the age of 17 he left his place of abode in search of a purpose. In 2003 after studying music at Texas Tech, fate, and a sudden twist of employment, brought him to San Antonio where ,through the graces of the powers that be, he met Bob. Knowing that together they were armed to start a revolution, Bob and Lenny formed Jack Levitt. Lenny’s musical background is deep and vast with a variety of influences from Classical Baroque to Led Zeppelin to Bob Marley to Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.

Now on rhythm guitar, Ernie Vasquez had originally joined the band as their drummer. With as much as Jack Levitt had progressed musically by then, they could not simply pick up the want-adds so they had to turn to a very short list of seasoned pros. Ernie Vasquez has been in the music scene for over 10 years touring with several different bands across the North American continent. Ernie now provides the sultry rhythm guitar for Jack Levitt through six strings of heavenly goodness as well as the perfectly matched harmonized vocals. Originally from Brownsville TX, Ernie has been a San Antonio native for many years. His musical influences range from progressive Tejano to Steve Miller to The Police and even to some of the other established Texas musicians.

Replacing Ernie on Drums is Manny Gomez. Still a mystery as to how this union came about. There is not much that is known about this San Antonio native other than the fact that he is from San Antonio. Quiet and reserved, his overall mystique clouds over his exterior only allowing you to focus the thunderous pulse coming from his drums. The shear nature of his drumming cannot be traced to any one type of music. This half-man half-machine can emulate any style of music so well that it almost baffles the mind. His technical ability is accurate and precise. His execution, flawless. His soul is filled with such darkness that his uncanny sense of tempo seem driven by an unnatural force. With Lenny locking down the groove coupled with this percussion demigod on drums there is no better conduit for Jack Levitt to reach into your chest and pull out your still-beating heart and coat it with the rich creamy goodness that is true Texas Music.
