Hey Lovely Friends!
We’ve got a boat cruise coming up in July and tickets are already selling fast! Grab yours now (you can e-transfer the money to me at firstname.lastname@example.org) so you don’t miss out. $50 in advance but $75 on the day of so yeah, buy them now. Billy Dixon’s Soul Train Express will be on the upper deck layin’ down the R&B dance grooves and we’ll be below on the main floor doin’ our lesismore thing with Steve Hilliam (Colin James Band) joining us on sax! It’s gonna be a BLAST!!
But let’s get back to March – it’s crazy with shows! We are so blessed. This week, we’re playing at The Heritage Grill on Friday Mar 6th from 8 til midnight with Ed Johnson from Brickhouse on drums. Give them a call at (604)759-0819 to reserve your table – it gets busy in that place! Saturday Mar 7th, we’re at the lovely Enigma Restaurant at 10th & Trimble from 7-10:30pm. I know the “lesismore dancers” are coming out in force (Bassim & Colleen – that’s you!) so a reservation is a really good idea. (604)222-6881 is the number.
Next week’s show are:
Wed Mar 11th – Curtis and I are Steve Kozak’s special guests at Pat’s Pub for “Blues & Brews”! 7-11pm. It’s at 403 East Hastings – www.patspub.ca We’re really excited about playin’ some blues with our good friend and Maple Blues Award winner Steve Kozak! Hope to see you there.
Thurs Mar 12th – The duo plays One20 Pub in North Delta from 6:30-9:30pm. Fun!!
Fri Mar 13th – The duo opens for The Rock N’ Roll Circus’ CD Release Party at Heritage Grill! SO honored to be asked to do this! Our friends (The R&R Circus) are amazing! It’s gonna be a really fun night. We’re on at 8pm for an hour to get things going.
Sat Mar 14th – Off to Langley we go to play Porter’s – a VERY cool little joint! If you haven’t checked this place out, you definitely should. It’s tiny so you need a reservation for sure. (604)530-5297 to grab your table. You get a full home-cooked meal and live music for a very reasonable price in an historic building that is quaint and wonderful. We play from 7-10pm (and Ed Johnson from Brickhouse will be on drums!)
So much more coming this month – like Lulu’s Lounge (River Rock), The Pinnacle Hotel (North Van) and Curve Lounge – but I don’t wanna overwhelm you so I’ll leave it for now and remind you weekly.
But one more exciting piece of news – Curtis and I are recording a cd of the duo this month at James Badger’s studio in Langley! We’re really excited to capture this new sound and make it available to you. Stay tuned for more details on that.
See you at the gigs!
Leslie & the boys
