Welcome to Lesismore’s website!
So – DO you have your tickets for the boat cruise? It is VERY close to sold out so if you’re thinking of joining us on this fantastic adventure on Sunday, July 5th – email me NOW!! Billy Dixon and his stellar band will be playing upstairs in the sunshine and we’ll be on the main floor in the salon – with Steve Hilliam on sax! – playing our hearts out for you!! Yay!! This is gonna be the first big kickoff party to the Summer season and you do NOT wanna miss it!!
But backing up a bit, this week Curtis & I (the little duo that could) are playing in the lovely Curve Lounge at The River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond on Wed, Thurs and Friday, Jun 17-19th; from 5-8pm. It’s an early show and there’s tons of free parking – or the Canada Line comes right to the door! How convenient is that? We very much look forward to playing for you. Come on down and have a drink and relax with us.
Next Thursday Jun 25th, we’re at One20 Pub in North Delta. This is a really cool gastropub with incredible food, lots of craft beers, a lovely selection of wines and great service. There’s really nothing like it out there – you have to check it out to see what I mean. The duo plays from 6:30-9:30pm and it would be VERY cool to see you in the room!!
Lots more coming up so don’t forget to hit our website and find out all the details.
See you at the gigs!

Hello my lovely friends!
For those of you who didn’t make it to my big birthday celebration last Thursday at Heritage Grill – and those of you who did but are hankerin’ for more (like me) – the party continues!!! That’s right, this Thursday June 11th we’ll be taking the stage at Federico’s Supper Club on Commercial Drive and playing two shows from 7:30 til 10pm! If you haven’t been to Federico’s, you are in for a real treat. There is nothing else like it in Vancouver. You step into the place and suddenly, you are in a more civilized time surrounded by old world opulence. Renowned chef, Romy Prasad is at the helm in the kitchen and let me tell you, the food is to die for! Add to that a style of service that none of us have had the opportunity to enjoy in a long time – seamless, unobtrusive and excellent. So you’ve got a beautiful room, scrumptious food, impeccable service – but there’s more! Yes, they have a large dance floor which is one of the main attractions here. So many times I’ve thought “Now where can we go for the nostalgic dinner and dancing of yesteryear” and here it was waiting for me at Federico’s all along. I would be so honoured to have you join us for my continuing birthday celebration! Give them a call and make your reservation right now and I’ll see you on Thursday.
On Friday and Saturday evenings, June 12th & 13th, Curtis and I are heading out to White Rock to play some blues at The Hemingway Waterfront Public House from 7-9:30pm both nights. Right on the water with a spectacular view, this is the place to be this weekend. It’s the duo so I’ll be stompin’ while Curtis plays acoustic and all will be well with the world. It’d be SO cool so have you join us!!
Next week, it is our pleasure to take the duo back into The Curve Lounge in the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond from Wed to Sat, June 17th, 18th, 19th. It’s an early show: 5-8pm each day. We are loving playing this gig – it’s a lovely room and boasts a good menu and lotsa libations while you listen to us seranading you. Ahhhhh.
And then – Curtis and I head into Emerson Street Studios on Saturday, June 20th to record our duo cd!! Yay!! Because of your fab response to ‘the little duo that could’, we decided to capture it and put it out there! We look very forward to having it to share with you.
Keep smiling and dancing, people!
See you at the gigs,
Leslie & the boys
Hello my Fantastic Friends!
Tonight – Tuesday May 26th – we’re heading down to Big Rock Urban to play from 8-11pm. We LOVE BRU!! It’s a really cool room with LOTS of delicious beer, wine and cider available, an incredible menu, upbeat and fun staff and a hip, brew-pub vibe. We would LOVE to see you there!!
This Saturday, it’s off to Langley to play the charming Porter’s Bistro in historic Murrayville. You definitely need a reservation – it’s tiny! I’m super stoked because Chris (the Wrist) Nordquist is joining us on drums and you just KNOW that’s gonna be good! 7-10pm.
And then it’s my birthday. Well, not quite yet – it’s Thursday, June 4th and I’m celebrating by playing and having a big bash at The Heritage Grill in New West. I understand that it’s almost sold out so if you’re thinking about coming – PLEASE make a reservation so you’re not disappointed!!
On Thursday June 11th, we’re very excited to be back at Federico’s Supper Club! Yay!! Reservations required. We play from 7:30-10pm and this is old school charm at its very finest. Federico’s boasts a lovely big dance floor, amazing food by the renowned Remy Prasad, some of the best service I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen a LOT) and live music. What’s not to like? It would be absolutely wonderful to see you there!
Although there are MANY more gigs coming up, the last thing I’ll mention in this week’s newsletter is the Billy Dixon/Lesismore Boat Cruise on Sunday July 5th. Tickets are selling faster and faster and I’m sure we’ll be sold out soon. I know a lot of you have already got yours (thanks!) but if you haven’t – now is the time! You can contact me directly for them. That is going to be an epically fun day!!
Everything else is on the events page which, thanks to the lovely Jane Edgett, is always up to date!! It takes a team, people.
Hugs to all of you,
See you at the gigs,
Leslie & the boys
