The Duke (or Kev Lever as he is also known) was born at a very early age in Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire.
He was introduced to music as a baby and soon became proficient playing on the linoleum.
At the age of 5 he began to learn to play brass instruments.This skill would see him eventually join one of the finest brass bands in the world, Brighouse & Rastrick.
In his early teens the lure of sex, drugs and sausage rolls became too much and he joined rock bands playing bass guitar. Sporting a curly perm and clad in spandex and pixie boots he played in bands with names like Saratoga, Slack Alice, Neon Tetra, and more recently Dirty Weekend,with who he developed the idea of live band karaoke, or ‘Rockyoke’ as it became known.
Interspersed with his rock god career, at the age of 18 he began DJing in local bars and pubs.
As the deejaying faded away and performing live music became more important the decks were sold on, although the record collection remained.
Approximately 10 years ago, the other member in the duet he played with decided to load up the family and the dog and roll the waggons down to Hayling Island, which is about as far South as you can go without getting your feet wet.
It was now time to return to the glamorous world of deejaying, and so Duke Bock’s Party Train was launched on an unsuspecting world.
It soon became clear if he wanted to break into the posh Cheshire set, a company name with more gravitas would be required, and so KL Music was born.
He is now proud to be associated with a group of talented individuals as KL Radio hits t’interweb.
He has toured all over Europe and played in some the most prestigious venues, including the Royal Albert Hall on 4 separate occasions. Worked in radio, TV and recording studios. Met and worked with a host of celebrities. He is now content to sit behind a microphone in a radio station, with the occasional venture into the wide world deejaying weddings and parties.
