Welcome to Lesismore’s website!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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,
Leslie & the boys

Well hello my lovely friends! I hope you are all well and enjoying Spring. We’ve got lots of stuff coming up that we’d love to see you at so let’s get right to it:
Tonight, Thurs Apr 18th, Harris&DeBray play the wonderful One20 Pub in North Delta from 6:30-9:30pm. We LOVE One20! Such amazing food!! On Thursdays, it’s free corkage on bottles of wine you purchase from the One20 liquor store – how can you beat that? We look forward to seeing you tonight!
Next week is a busy one: On Wed Apr 24th, Harris&DeBray plays The Sylvia Hotel in the West End from 8-10pm. Yay! We love the opulent, sumptuous Sylvia. On Thurs Apr 25th, Harris&DeBray plays Blue Martini in Kits from 7-10pm. Fantastic room with great sight lines, delish food and a cool vibe. On Fri Apr 26th, Lesismore heads out to historic Murrayville in Langley to play Porter’s Bistro from 6:30-9:30. Yay!! SO fun. Make a reservation for sure – it’s teensy! Sat night Apr 27th, Lesismore plays Federico’s Supper Club from 9-11. Oh, how we love Federico’s. It’s like you walk through the doors into another time. Gorgeous room, amazing food, old world ambience, dance floor, Euro style service – excellent! You need reservations for sure.
And then we’re into May (can you believe it?) and there are a few things I’d like to mention: I’m gonna be the special guest at Donegal’s Pub in Surrey on Sunday May 5th and Curtis (my gunslinger) will be there rippin’ it up for you as well! 5-9, jam to follow our guest slot. Fun!
And then it’s DISH!! BC Hospitality Foundation’s annual fundraiser at the Trade and Convention Center is on Wed May 8th and the Lesismore Trio will be taking care of the live music part of the evening once again. Yay! We absolutely adore this event – the charity is quite dear to my heart. Please follow this link to find out all the details and purchase your tickets. Let’s all drink some wines, savour some delicious food from some of Vancouver’s top restaurants, enjoy the live music, mingle and raise money for a great cause! https://bchospitalityfoundation.com/bchf-events/dish-and-dazzle/dish-2019/
Finally, I think we’re almost sold out but there may be a few tickets left for Suzie Vinnick at The Anza on Friday May 17th. Curtis and I (Harris&DeBray) have the distinct honor of having been chosen to be her opening act and this is going to be an amazing evening! Vancouver Blues Around Town is organizing the event and hosting it – huge thanks to Mell Kirkland and her team. They continue to support the blues and keep everyone informed of what’s going on. Go here to get your tickets: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/suzie-vinnick-with-special-guests-harrisdebray-tickets-56098065825 fbclid=IwAR0hz1jlfzVdFLhsacii0PjF92qIcleOcppcsyefX7mOs0qwHDTFfIBkXoU
