Lenni Stewart: A widely-known & much-loved artist in the Quinte area and beyond, Lenni Stewart’s vocal prowess is immediately evident in her innate ability to express the romance, energy, pathos and humour in classics penned by the great composers of the American Songbook, Swing, and Torch Ballads. ‘I am passionate about the music I sing, and believe in having respect for the lyrics, and being true to their story’. Lenni’s music and performance style are reminiscent of the early popular vocalists such as Peggy Lee, Doris Day, Sarah Vaughn and Judy Garland. ‘Classy, sassy and sophisticated’ she is a highly versatile entertainer. Lenni’s strong stage presence, musicality, diverse repertoire and sense of humour make for a truly enjoyable and memorable audience experience. Lenni toured across Canada as opening act for Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney in the nostalgic hit ‘Let’s Put On A Show’ with tenor Julian Gallo, travelling from Whitehorse to Sydney and appearing in many of Canada’s most beautiful theatres during 2 separate tours.
Michael Monis: Comfortable in any musical style, and active in the Toronto music scene for well over thirty years, Michael has toured extensively and worked both in studio and on stage with countless jazz greats from Moe Koffman to Jane Bunnett. Son of legendary guitar master Hank Monis, Michael currently resides with his family in Millbrook, Ontario.
