with the traditional Irish band "The McCabes" in New York and even
played as a guest with "Spinal Tap" at the Beacon Theater.
The list of iconic musicians he has worked with also continues to
grow, including Ronnie Montrose, Sin City Allstars, The Batusi

three years drumming for the Jay White Show, a Las Vegas premier

Lez’s experience (some honed percussion skills during his travels in
Africa), talent and passion for music will always drive him on to new
