Leon Vest At Smiley's

In the world of music, the songwriting team of Leon Vest is nothing less than a breath of fresh air.

Once you've experienced the compelling sounds of this original songwriting team and their remarkable cast of musicians, you'll know why their grassroots fan base in West Marin has blossomed into a local phenomenon.

Together with their band, Sandy Leon Vest and songwriting partner James Vest have managed to create a sound that sparkles with originality, yet waxes evocative of the idealism and romanticism that graced the music of the sixties and seventies.

Leon Vest's songwriting has been finely crafted over their years of performing and playing in Marin County, and it shows - more today than ever before.

The songs of Leon Vest are lyrically poetic, while at the same time reflecting a fiercely political point of view. Sandy Leon Vest's melodies, lyrics and whimsical vocal style supported by a driving percussion section of veteran musicians simply deliver the goods.

Leon Vest offers much more than a musical performance of the highest order. Their music produces an undeniable high that transforms the room - and the people in it.

Whether you're already a diehard Leon Vest fan or only recently heard the buzz, you won't want to miss Leon Vest at Smiley's on Friday night. See you at the show!
