The Bill Ledbetter Project is the brainchild of singer/songwriter, Bill Ledbetter and features long-time musical compadre’ John English on guitar and vocals, and our newest members, Spencer Leffel on Drums, Mark Leffel on bass, and Jennifer Skates, contributing lead vocals, flute, and trumpet. We are fortunate to have Father and Son groove machine Spencer and Mark join our musical family. Jennifer also brings a new dynamic force to the group, and we couldn’t be more excited. Besides a professional, soulful and powerful vocalist/multi-instrumentalist, Jennifer also brings her songwriting, composing and lyrical skills to the project. Spencer is a world-class drummer with a wealth of experience playing multiple genres and son Mark has been playing multiple instruments since he was a kid but excels on bass. The BLP plays a mix of electric Blues Rock that often carries a Jazz attitude, and gritty Americana, blending different genres and styles for a unique sound. Along with the original songs, sets often feature the band’s take on covers of classic Blues and gems by artists like Little Feat, The Rolling Stones, Tom Waits, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton & The Allman Brothers.
The band is available for club or party gigs, as well as shows of all original material for festivals or other music venues that feature original artists, or as an opening or headlining band for showcase events that feature multiple bands. [+]
