Hello all you fabulous music-loving people!
Omigod – where to start? Okay, begin at the beginning, right? So, this week Harris-DeBray (the Lesismore duo) heads over to Richmond to play the beautiful Curve Lounge in the River Rock Casino Wed to Fri, Mar 25, 26, 27 from 5-8pm!! No cover charge, great food, great sightlines – hope to see you there!
Next week we’re playing One20 Pub in North Delta on Thurs Apr 2nd, The Heritage Grill in New West on Fri Apr 3rd and Hemingway’s in White Rock on Sat Apr 4th – phew!! All the details are on our events page.
A couple of special things I wanna bring to your attention though so you can mark your calendars and make plans:
Apr 12th – The Pat Pub at 403 East Hastings from 3-7pm. This is a monthly blues thang that is gonna be REALLY fun!
May 7th – Dish N Dazzle (in case you were wondering about the picture at the top). This is an EXCELLENT cause that we play each year and it’s only $69 with the promo code in the poster for a fantastic evening of Argentinian wines, food from some of Vancouver’s top restaurants and music from Lesismore! In case you’re not aware, the BC Hospitality Foundation raises money to support people who work in hospitality who are faced with financial challenges due to illness. It’s a cause that is very dear to my heart after spending many years in that industry. It would be so great if you could join us!
June 4th – My birthday party at Heritage Grill. Not just any birthday either – it’s my SIXTIETH!!! Omigod, how the hell did that happen??? Time sure does fly. For those of you who know Heritage Grill, you know that it’s only holds so many people in the front room where we play so make your reservations NOW!! (604)759-0819. More about this later but here’s a hint: The theme is “Send Leslie to Spain” so in lieu of gifts, please put in a little something (or a big something lol) to make this dream of mine happen. I MUST go to the world’s largest food fight, “La Tomatina”!! More about this later.
And finally, Billy Dixon and Lesismore’s Boat Cruise on Sunday July 5th!!! There are already some tickets sold and this will sell out for sure. It’s from 2-6pm (board at 1) on The Queen of Diamonds out of Plaza of Nations. Billy and his stellar band on the rooftop layin down the R&B dance grooves and the Lesismore quintet with Steve Hilliam on sax (Colin James Band and many others) on the main level rockin’ out with our own special brand of blues and soul! Omigod, so fun! You can buy your tickets – $50 in advance – directly from me. Just email me to arrange it. If there are any left on the day of, which I highly doubt, they’ll be $75.
See – I told you there was a lot and that’s just a few things! All the gigs are on our website so make sure you check the events.
Thanks so much – you know we love you!!
See you at the gigs,
Leslie & the boys
