Jazz Standards

Pop Favorites


Thanks for your interest in my work as a musician in community settings. I am particularly proud to participate in the nationwide program Musicians On Call,” which brings the healing power of music directly to the bedsides of patients and their families, and to be a staff musician at the Hebrew Home for Aged, an assisted living facility in the Bronx.  I also perform at homeless shelters, senior centers, public libraries, probation facilities, the NYC subways and parks, farmers’ markets, block parties, and various private events.

"Wally Levis and Curt Kendrick provided three hours of music at my company's holiday party this year. The event, a sophisticated affair that included dinner for approximately 50 people, was held at a restaurant on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The music, a mixture of jazz standards and folk classics, was tastefui, appropriate, and very well received by my guests. Wally and Curt were on time, professional, courteous, and easy to deal with in every way."
—Diane Bell, Senior Financial Advisor, Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc.


"This summer my wife and I celebrated the birth of our first child, Tal Johnathan. We had the Bris at the Riverdale Temple and Wally Levis provided three hours of wonderful music for the event... Wally helped to make the Bris a joyous celebration, and I'm happy to recommend him for your party or special event."
—Mayan Metzler


"Thank you and Curtis for entertaining at our wedding.  You were wonderfully flexible in working to make our day so special.  The music set the tone, exactly as we had planned.  It was romantic and warm.  Our friends and family spoke about how the music really added a measure of festivity.  My favorite memory of the day was after all the guests had gone, and you continued to play. Shelly and I danced, and it was magical.  We appreciated how much you contributed, and we enjoyed working with you."
—Bonnie and Shelly
