Get Ready for Liftoff!

With playful harmonies, acoustic guitars, percussion and upright bass, Sharon Leslie and Daniel Kasnitz perform acoustic versions of popular hits with a funky, jazzy twist.  From classic standards to captivatingly re-worked top-40 to seasonal favorites, Sharon & Daniel lead a participatory exploration of our experiences of joy, love, fun and community as expressed through popular song. 

“We lead gatherings in singing songs that draw us together to have fun and lift spirits.” explains Leslie. “We  played songs from 1967 to help the Brooks Memorial Library celebrate the 50th anniversary of their building. We found many tunes that have captured our collective imagination and are a beloved part of our cultural bedrock. Many are great for sing-alongs and blend well with the tunes we play from other eras.” adds Kasnitz. 

“Their love for the songs shines so very bright!” enthuses Starr Latronica, Director of the Brooks Memorial Library. Strolling of the Heifers creator Orly Munzing proclaimed, “They are amazing” about their recent concert at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden.  


• Leslie plays a variety of hand percussion and acoustic guitar. 

• Kasnitz plays  upright and electric bass, acoustic guitar and piano.
