The Academy Blues Project

The Academy Blues Project, a powerhouse multi-genre band based in New York City, blends funk grooves, dynamic storytelling, and the bluesy wail of frontman Mark Levy into an irresistibly eccentric sound. ABP’s propulsive live shows skew toward the outrageously theatrical, lyrically spinning offbeat narratives about everything from witches’ hats to shipwrecks to the mysteries of the Hollywood Hills.
