Levi Vreeman has played drums since he was in middle school, first discovering his proclivity for the instrument through the tribal sounds of the Senegalese djembe. From there, his passion has led him to experiment with a wide range of percussion, from hand percussion and drum set to marching snare drum in WGi World Championships. Levi is currently working on a dual degree in Sociology and criminology at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, and is recording and playing shows with his band VaTiC.
With the tagline, “jazz by day, death metal by night,” Levi is comfortable with any style on drum set, with some favorites being rock/metal, jazz, and funk. Philosophically, Levi believes music is about love; the love of playing, the love of listening, and the love of understanding. For him, the drums are the heartbeat of the band, where all feeling and emotion begin and end. Levi hopes to share that with his own playing and teaching, to the audience, students, fellow musicians, and really just anybody that will listen.
