Lezlie provided featured solist acoustic guitar services at our intimate wedding reception. Her smooth voice and delightful light touch provided an extraordinary serenade for my bride. The reception was impromptu, and I had contacted Lezlie only a day or so in advance. By her stellar performance, she added to the magic of the evening, and was such a delight we invited her to stay as a guest. Her voice is melliflous, and her pitch and delivery was right-on and very professionally delivered. Not only would I recommend her, I would also make it a point to have her perform at our future get-togethers. Brava, Lezlie!
