I offer live music for a variety of circumstances. I’ve worked as a leader and a side person with groups of many sizes (to fit your budget) and styles.
At the Husdson Loft in DTLA we celebrate a wedding. One forward thinking bride loved my sound so much she requested me alone for her festivities before the full live band came on to really keep the party going. We had a wonderful time.

Here’s what they’re saying about Leslie’s producing:
“Thank you for allowing me to use your studio and for preparing a CD for my choir to use. We’ve been friends for many years and I treasure our friendship. Peace & Love,”
Dee Dee McNeil
“I’ve enjoyed many gigs with my friend bassist Leslie Baker. What fun it was when she invited me to be an early participant in her grand experiment:recording at home in her ok corral. The relaxed encouraging atmosphere created by Leslie in her producing role and her right hand person, recording engineer Paul Chevalier made for a very fun time. They let me know how much my talents are appreciated. We came up with a bass and vocal duet that I am glad to have recorded.Thanks Leslie!”
