DUKE LEBOLD

Story

First let me say that in my live performances I do a number of classic cover tunes in addition to many original songs. I have posted some of those originals here, enjoy! Music is about silence and the spaces between the notes... like walking thru a magic door. I live in a beautiful little town called Perth, Ontario. I am available for all types of events from private gatherings to pubs, restaurants, halls, concerts and outdoor music festivals. In 1964 I got my cherry red Harmony semi hollow body guitar and formed a band - best cover "Wild Thing", lol. In 1967, I was asked to join an established band (Out From Eden) and we played all over Ontario - those were the days my friend...if you can dig what I'm talkin' about, lol. Went into broadcasting after going to college and finished up as a network television director. Music, news, drama and talk tv are all in my resume. Retired now and playing my music with my faithful guitars by my side. Music can be a bitter pill but we wait and hope for the rain on the rooftops and olive groves and lemon trees. It adds meaning to our lives and gives hope everlasting. Children, play on.
