As a one man band using the latest techincal gear my sound is just like a full band!. Over 30 years as an entertainer in addition to the above, I am often billed as a singer/songwriter/storyteller.
I can work as a Jimmy Buffett tribute band using the latest profession backing tracks with steel drum and all wireless vocals and guitar. I also play all other genre of music including Beach music, Motown, Country, oldies and Classic Rock or whatever fits the occasion.
I have a solid 10 years working seaside resorts, casino ships, private and coporate function and weddings.
My equipment is the latest Bose system for a pure digital sound. My playlist is over 3000 songs covering all popular genre and my act is considered entergetic and entertaining.
I am a sober, non-smoking mature and happy entertainer with 4 CD's to my credit.
Leo is not only the best Jimmy Buffett Tribute I have ever heard but also one of the best entertainers and songwriters I have ever heard. His original music and songwriting is second to none. And he knows how to work a crowd and get the audience involved. You hire this man you will not be disappointed.

What to Expect
As a high energy experienced entertainer I have honed my craft with almost 4,000 gigs at every possible location and type of event including any wedding related, class reunions, company and corporate functions, backyard parties.
An entertaining evening of all acoustic music with tons of original music plus favorites like Jerry Jeff Walker, John Prine, Jimmy Buffett and Robert Earl Keen just to name a few. Everything fron cozy ballads to lightning fast flat picking like Doc Watson and Tony Rice.
Also lots of story songs for the grown-ups. Nothing vulgar (unless you want to <wink>) but stuff the kids just wouldn't understand :)
In short, I always have a great time and every gig is fun!
With roots from the Florida keys to the carolina beaches, I have honed my craft in a countless number of smokey bars and honky tonks to hundreds of beach side resorts and many 5 star resorts in locations such as:
Ponte Vedre, Sea Island, St. Simons Island, Hilton Head Island, Jacksonville Beach, Orange beach and Gulf Shores Alabama, Key West, Sarasota and Clearwater Beach, Jekyll Island GA, Tampa, Atlanta, New Orleans, Savannah, Charlestown and many other locations.
My start was from my high school years growing up in Wilmington NC living at Carolina and Wrightsville beaches where I got an early education in Beach music. I then worked the coffee houses in the late sixties and later shared the stage with the likes of Johnny Paycheck, Freddy Fender, Jack Green.
In the early ninties I discovered Jimmy Buffett and the Parrothead movement and started a new career in TropRock all the while working as a one man band perfecting the techincal side of solo performing with a full band sound.
In recent years I have settled into the beachfront resorts, private and coporate events and tons of wedding related all the while still doing a singer/songwriter/storyteller act in and around the southeastern US while based out of the Brunswick/St, Simons Island area.
