My name is Bob Levoy, and I am a U.S. Navy Veteran and music and concert reviewer. I have written over 3500 reviews since the 1980s for my blog Oasis Entertainment and for independent record labels, PR firms, festivals, venues and bands. I write reviews for all genres, except for hip hop, which is not my cup of tea.

In addition to all the independent labels and artists that I have been writing reviews for, I am currently an Author on Staff at Virtuosity Worldwide Arts & Entertainment Magazine, a subsidiary of Virtuosity Worldwide LLC. I write music reviews and do concert and festival interviews and reviews for their magazine.

I will still write reviews for my independent artists and labels in addition to the work I will be doing for Virtuosity Worldwide.

I do reviews in the following priority:
1. Vinyl (I prefer signed if available)
2. CD's (I also review older releases)
3. Digital Download
4. Singles (digital download) if I don't have anything else on my desk.
5. Streaming only if I don't have any of the above on my desk which is very rare. Streaming takes too much time and some cases with songs running together I am unable to tell one song from another.

I would also be interested in reviewing your bands music and reviewing your live performance if you are ever in my area. I do not ask for pay for my reviews, I only ask for either a signed Vinyl or CD and an X-large t-shirt that I wear to promote the bands.

You can contact me at one of the links below. Plus, I would love the opportunity to get my vinyl signed the bands.
