The Lesters feature Juno-nominated Tory Cassis on guitar and vocals, Murray Foster of Great Big Sea on upright bass, and Berklee College of Music graduate Jeff Ulster on piano. Musical accomplices for over fifteen years, The Lesters have been accused by some of living in the past. A common love of timeless songwriting and classic jazz has long kept this vocal jazz trio exploring arrangements and playing for appreciative audiences whenever the opportunity strikes. Paying tribute to favourites like the King Cole Trio, Ray Charles and Fats Waller, The Lesters like to offer something old, something new.

BAND MEMBERS:
Tory Cassis – Tory Cassis is Juno-nominated artist and a refreshingly original singer, songwriter, guitarist, trumpeter and storyteller.
Murray Foster – Best known for his role in the bands Moxy Fruvous and Great Big Sea, Murray Foster is a multi-talented songwriter, musician, and producer.
Jeff Ulster – Jeff Ulster is a skilled pianist who studied arranging and performance at the Berklee College of Music.

TESTIMONIAL:
"The Lesters have that classic and timeless sound that have you tapping your toe, snapping your fingers, and wishing for dancing feet. They take you away and make you want to stay there. We were fortunate to have the Lesters perform for our annual fundraiser for Lonny's Smile Foundation. To say it was the perfect backdrop isn't quite right, because they made us all want to straighten up, listen up, maybe even fly right – and definitely want to see them again." - Tamara Doerksen, Lonny's Smile Founder
