Level 42 was born in 1979 as a band that fused jazz and funk. Level 42 are: Mark King bass/vocals, Mike Lindup keys/vocals, Nathan King guitar/vocals, Sean Freeman sax/vocals, Dan Carpenter trumpet/vocals, Nichol Thomson trombone/vocals and Pete Ray drums.
Having just completed a 36 date sold out UK & European tour ‘Sirens’, Level 42 could be forgiven for wanting to take things a little easier after 34 years in the saddle. Nothing further from reality according to bassist and front man Mark King. To date the band and Mark have released 14 studio albums, 7 live albums and they have sold over 30 million records worldwide.
In short they have proven to be one of the most successful British bands of the 1980’s and it is clear they continue to be a benchmark for British Jazz Funk at the highest level.
