Lavels music can be heard

on  syndicated television shows

 

Born in Saginaw, Michigan Lavel was destined to be a musician. He made instruments out of any household object he could find. He could learn the words to songs and sing them as well as any professional recording artist. He started collecting records at the age of 7. But Lavel was very humble and somewhat shy. He never considered himself as a lead vocalist or front-man for a singing group or band. Instead he was happy playing trombone or singing background for the bands and singing groups he joined during middle and high school. It wasn’t until a band member heard him signing the melody to a song the band was playing and suggested that he sing a instead of playing trombone that he even considered being a front-man for a band or group. Although he was uncomfortable singing, the response was too great to go back to playing trombone. As Lavel’s confidence grew, he was invited to sing with several bands and groups, but it the offer to join the B.A.D Band that gave the opportunity to realize what a good front-man can do for a band or group. Lavel was the lead vocalist for the band “The B.A.D. Band” during the 80’s and early 90’s. Although The B.A.D. Band never achieved national or international success, they did have 2 successful single releases (Stay Awhile" (1986) and  "All I Want is You" (1988) which lead to the band being the opening act for many major recording artist during that era.

Lavel co- wrote and sang lead vocals on both singles. The success of the singles (Stay Awhile 86’ and All I want is you 88’) also lead to a recording contract with Motown records in 1991 and a demo deal with Al Hyman (Sony Records.)
