Lester Rocks – 2019
November 16, 2019 @ 7:30pm
Lester Rocks – 2019 at the Ellen Theatre on November 16@7:30pm
Bandleader Stefan Stern is the glue of Lester Rocks.
Playing Stern’s original compositions, the group blends musical genres to create their own unique sound.
The concert will feature new songs written by Stern, as well as audience favorites from previous shows. *Please Note: some song lyrics contain mature content, including language.
A Lester Rocks show is not just a concert. It is musical satire, showcasing clever songwriting and some of Bozeman’s premier musicians. Bandleader Stefan Stern plays piano and sings lead vocals backed up by Krista Barnett and Jeni Fleming; Jake Fleming is on bass guitar and Drew Fleming plays drums.
The band’s repertoire appeals not just to music lovers, but anyone with a good sense of humor. The songs, written by Stefan Stern, often have a comical twist rooted in autobiographical or anecdotal life experience: The lyrics for “Your Casserole”, conjure a dish Stern’s mother used to make and is remembered as being particularly bad; “Puckaroo” tells the story of Stern’s dog and how he failed as a therapy dog at an old folks home; other songs are satirically dealing with global warming, the inappropriate use of a handicap parking permit, man colds, and many more funny topics brought to music by Stefan Stern and Lester Rocks.
“Lester Rocks isn’t a blues show or a rock show. It’s a Lester Rocks show, filled with gut-busting humor and a genuine love of music”.
– Rachel Hergett, Bozeman Daily Chronicle
