The Rock-itt : November 2011
discovered how amazing this drummer was. Billy became part of the band. Since Year 12, James, Mitch and Billy have been playing gigs all around Sydney under the name of Lange Theory. Until 2-3 months ago they rem ained a trio, then the magical tones of Dean’s irresistible guitar playing was thrown into the mix. Now a four piece outfit, they indulge themselves in a range of genres ranging from Folk to Indie Pop to Reggae. James says these are the genres which reflect his personality best. James is now at Sydney University studying a Bachelor of Science, though music remains his true passion. “It’s tough juggling them both, but I like to keep busy and my mind stimulated on different fronts”. Some of the venues Lange Theory have performed at include The Basement at Circular Quay, Bondi Beach rd Hotel, Lansdowne Hotel, Manning Bar at Sydney Uni, Low 302, Coogee Hotel, Oxford Arts Factory, Mona Vale Hotel, Bondi and Chatswood FM radio, Gaelic Club, launch of the Manly Youth Café during the Jazz Festival and many more. Mitch Levett has been playing music since he can rem ember. Being brought up on the Northern Beaches, beach culture is a huge influence in his life and music. He always had music in the house with his dad playing guitar. Mitch didn’t officially start until 3rd grade playing drums in the school band. The first time James and Mitch got together was when we were in Year 6 and they won the Talent Quest at Avalon Public School. In high school he played drums in the school band and this is where they met Billy. Dean McLeod grew up on the northern beaches of Sydney surfing and playing guitar from when he was super young. After playing in bands through high school, he completed a music degree at Macquarie University. When his friend, James, asked for a lead guitar player for Lange theory he accepted. Billy O’Key started playing drums at theageof12whenhewasinYear7. He played with as many bands as he could throughout high school. After topping his music class and being one of the very few short listed for NSW encore performances at the Opera House, he has since played in groups around the northern beaches and the city both as a full time drummer and a session drummer. Since 2010 he has been drumming in the Manly and Mosman Musical society productions. Next year, Billy hopes to attend the Sydney Conservatorium of Music to study for a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance. I’ve yet to see the band play live and will possibly do so very soon. It will be a unique experience to see the band in action and playing live is the ultimate way to see any outfit. If you see them advertised playing a gig then make an effort to get to it, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
