Lee Levin and Richard Bravo Check in from Barry Gibb Tour!
Pearl artists, Lee Levin and Richard Bravo are currently circling the globe with the lone Bee Gee, Barry Gibb, playing to packed houses each night in front of thousands of devoted Bee Gee fans celebrating one of the biggest and best song writers of all time. With the first leg of the ‘Mythology Tour’ taking place down under, Barry Gibb, Richard Bravo, and Lee Levin have constructed a hit-heavy set that encompasses the entire catalog from the Bee Gee’s astounding career, including hits like “Night Fever”, “Jive Talkin’”, and, of course, the ever so popular “Stayin’ Alive”, to name a few. The Mythology Tour kicked off in Australia, where the mainstream success all started for Barry and the Bee Gees, however due to the astounding popularity of the event and incredible demand it has been receiving, the tour is being scheduled to travel the world throughout 2013 with plans to travel throughout South America and Europe currently in the works.
The Mythology Tour stage is absolutely cluttered with the Pearl brand, with each instrument being masterfully played by the talents of Lee Levin, on drums, and Richard Bravo, on percussion. Each night, the Pearl duo is guaranteed to dazzle and amaze audiences, both playing an intricate role to the ever-popular sound of Barry and the Bee Gees. Throughout their Australian dates, Lee Levin has been turning to the Reference Series to achieve the precise tones that are needed to accomplish Barry’s unmistakable sound. On percussion, Richard Bravo has relied on the Bobby Allende Signature Congas and Bongos in order to achieve a larger projection in the massive arenas, due to the wider base found in the Bobby Allende Signature model.
