Leslie’s Duo, Trio and Band

I always enjoy the added responsibility of leading a musical group. Why? I get my choice of material to perform and my choice of musicians to perform with.

Leslie on vocals and bass for “Must be Jelly Baby”.  Special thanks to Forrest Penner on guitar, John Balbuena on keyboard and Tsugumi Shikano drums.

Opportunities vary from concerts to recording to live performances at special events and parties.

Here's the invite I sent out to have an audience. Without you the audience, a hambone like me might wither and die.

This is the invitation I sent out to my beautiful fun loving audience:

Hello Music Lovers,

Always a welcome sight on the bandstand, whether as a leader or a sideperson, Leslie Baker has played bass with a countless number of greats including Buddy Collette, Billy Higgins, Terry Lynn Carrington, Floyd Dixon, Vi Redd, and Willie Dixon.
