The Next Level Band, which performs throughout the tri-state area, features an eclectic group of musicians from the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe, playing authentic reggae favorites as well as their own calypso-infused arrangements of classics. At the core of the Next Level Band is the husband/wife team of guitarist/steel drum virtuoso Tyrone Parris from Barbados, and vocalist La Dawn Parris who has performed with Anita Baker, Oleta Adams, The Temptations, and Doc Powell, among many others. The duo has 25 years of performing and recording experience.
