“…. “She sings in a silky smooth fashion that caresses the ear like brandy slides down the throat.” Vincent Jackson, The Press of Atlantic City
Lezlie Anders has a unique and interesting background; she pursued a career in business and became a forerunner for women in the corporate world. She was a divestiture specialist and business broker. She and her partner purchased and owned companies throughout the Midwest.
In 1985 she purchased a nightclub in Portland, Oregon. It was there that she began performing in her club and during this time she earned a degree in Music, formed her first big band, The Roseland Orchestra, and hosted a popular music/talk radio show.
In 1992, she was appearing at The Desert Inn, Las Vegas, which began a three-year engagement there. Since then, she has performed in every major venue in Las Vegas and throughout the world. She has worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment business, and she and her big band have become a favorite for corporate and private events.
Her first CD “With Love, Lezlie”, Celebrity Records, features her husband of fourteen years, jazz great, Buddy Greco, and also features Don Menza and Carl Fontana.
“This recording really made me sit and listen from start to finish…I first heard Lezlie at The Green Room in London…Supper Clubs are not easy engagements but her relaxed easy style captured immediate attention. A voice very similar to Peggy Lee, perfect diction and delivery!” Q Magazine, John Aizlewood, Editor.
Her second CD, “FEVER! The Music of Miss Peggy Lee,” USA Records, was recorded and co-produced by the University of Nevada, and features songs from the show of the same name, which she wrote and co-produced with her husband, Buddy. The show opened to rave reviews and is now on national tour.
