Next Level is popular not only because of its great sound
but also because of its wide variety of music, providing something
for everyone. Although primarily known for its dance, pop and
R&B, the band also provides something for everyone including country,
disco, standards or dinner jazz
Anyone who has seen The Next Level in action knows that whether the song is new or old,
Greg Strachan provides smooth lead vocals in the style of Luther van Dross, Stevie Wonder, Frankie Beverly and even Garth Brooks on occasion .
In addition, we now have one of Houston's most beautiful and dynamic female singers. Her name is Annette Williams. She covers just about any style and brings high energy and excitement to songs by artists such as Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Anita Baker, Aretha, Natalie Cole and Mariah Carey. Using wireless microphones, both of our singers know how to keep the crowd involved to help everyone have a great time.
Besides providing solid lead vocals and stellar background vocals, Derrick Harris (guitar & lead vocals), Linus Anderson (drums), James Smith (Electric bass), Ron Cole(keyboards) and Roderick Davenport (Saxophone) continue to be equally versatile as a tight, experienced backup unit or as a stand-alone group for more intimate settings. With a little audience persuasion, Derrick can bring back just about any old favorite.
