Need a band to play YOUR animal charity event? Look no further than the aptly named Pet-Rox!

NYC veterinarian Jeff Levy founded the band and is the singer and rhythm guitarist. In fact, all of the musicians are involved with animals in some way – the bassist is a tropical fish hobbyist, the lead guitarist is a therapy dog handler, the drummer is a pet lawyer and the keyboardist is a zookeeper. The backup singers, a group of ladies called the Rox-ettes, include a cat rescuer and a veterinary surgeon. Past members include an animal behaviorist and even a pet psychic.

“The band has been together in various formations for about four years,” Levy said. “We play rock and roll and blues, but only songs associated with the animal world around us.”

A typical Pet-Rox set opens with The Monkees’ “I’m Gonna Buy Me A Dog.” You might hear The Beatles’ “Octopus’ Garden” or “Werewolves of London”. Levy plays homage to the delta blues with “Little Red Rooster,” “Hound Dog,” “See You Later, Alligator” and Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock.” The band is also putting together some original material. One of the first songs, “Outta Here,” relates to indoor cats pondering on the world outside.

Pet-Rox founder Dr. Jeffrey Levy makes house calls for your pet, and administers doctoring, acupuncture, and holistic therapies as needed. For an appointment, call 212 465 1667. To book Pet-Rox, and for further information about the band, e-mail / Issue 34 - September 2018
