Welcome to Lesismore’s website!

Hello my lovely friends!

As some of you have heard, we’ve had to change the date for Gardenstock to July 7th instead of this Sunday due to imminent rain. It would be no fun at all to be in Sue’s gorgeous back yard if it’s raining! As well, not very safe for us performers using electrical gear out there. So if any of you had written it off because Jun 23rd didn’t work for you, maybe you can now attend! So, it’s now July 7th, Sue’s back yard in Maple Ridge (right near Meadowtown Mall), $20 in advance, BYOB, potluck if you feel like bringing something. Give her a call at 604.837.4817 to grab your tickets. The lineup of entertainment is:
*Bobby Bacchus “Vancouver’s Crooning Sensation” from 4-5pm
*Debut Performance of Dan & Nadia around 5:30
*Harris&DeBray from around 6 til 8pm.

But prior to that, this Thursday Jun 20th, Harris&DeBray are heading out to our favorite pub in North Delta – One20 – to play some blues and roots for you from 6:30-9:30pm. It’s a fantastic place with amazing food and service – come on out!

Saturday Jun 22nd, Harris&DeBray will be playing an afternoon performance at Provence Marinaside as part of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival!! 2-5pm. Make a reservation – it’s gonna be nuts down there!

On Saturday Jun 29th, Lesismore (quartet) plays The Raven Pub in Deep Cove from 8-11pm and it’s gonna be FUN! It’ll be the first time we’ve had the whole band there and we are gonna blow that roof off! Come join us if you wanna – it’s a great spot.

Sunday Jun 30th, Harris&DeBray heads into the fray on Granville Island to play The Backstage Lounge from 2-5pm as part of their Sunday concert series. Canada Day weekend on Granville Island during Jazz Fest? Crazy fun! Hope you can make it!

And that’s June in a nutshell!
See you at the gigs,
Leslie & the boys

It’s That Time of Year Again!

Yup, it’s back! My birthday, that is and oh boy, do we ever have some gigs coming up for that!! But before we get into my birthday weekend, I just wanna let you know that next Sunday June 2nd, Harris&DeBray are playing the brand new Acoustic Afternoons concert series at The Paddlewheeler Pub in New West from 2-5pm! We are really excited about this – it’s a great venue right on the water at the Quay and it’s gonna be fun! I look forward to seeing you there.

And then all hell breaks loose LOL! So, beginning with Friday June 7th, it’s my first birthday party at Porter’s Bistro in historic Murrayville in Langley. I think it’s pretty full already but Bill, the owner, told me that if you wanna come by and sit on the patio and have a drink he’s fine with that. Let’s PACK that joint! Give them a call for your reservation 604.530.5297.

The next night, Saturday June 8th, the Lesismore Quintet with Steve Hilliam (Colin James Band) will be playing Leslie’s Birthday Party Round #2 at Frankie’s Jazz Club across from the stadium on Beatty Street from 8-11pm. Yay!! We LOVE Frankie’s! You must make a reservation for this show and it’s $17.50 per person cover charge. Here’s the link: https://www.coastaljazz.ca/events/list/?tribe_paged=1&tribe_event_display=list&tribe_eventcategory=3&tribe_series_filter=77 We look forward to seeing you there cuz it’s a fantastic place to see and hear live music. The food is amazing, too!

Finally, on Sunday June 9th, I’ll be joining the amazing ladies at The Fairview for Ladies Sing the Blues! The show is from 4:30-7:30pm, $15 cover at the door and it’s FUN! Okay, this one is not really my birthday but I’m just claiming the whole weekend as such. LOL!!

Lot’s more coming up in June – it’s all on our website if you care to visit – but one more thing I want to mention here:

GARDENSTOCK!!! That’s right folks, the first ever Gardenstock will take place on Sunday June 23rd in Pitt Meadows at Sue Webb’s house – the back yard, to be specific. “Vancouver’s Crooning Sensation” Bobby Bacchus will do his incredible thing from 4-5pm and then Harris&DeBray will play a couple of sets from 6-8pm. This is a tickets in advance house concert so please contact Sue Webb either at spideropsslave@shaw.ca and etransfer her the money or give her a call at 604-837-4817 to arrange your tickets. It’s already quite sold so I’d get on this if you wanna join the fun. It’s BYOB and also if you’d like to bring something to add to the potluck it’d be much appreciated. FUN!

Okay, enough! This almost birthday girl is exhausted just reading all that’s coming! Lol.
See you at the gigs,
