I met Les when a band he was playing with hired me to record a demo CD for them. We quickly learned we had a great deal in common; similar tastes in music, approximately the same amount of time & experience in the music business and we both cared about helping others through music. We enjoyed playing together and discovered an interesting collaboration neither of had ever tried before - an acoustic guitar player & singer accompanied by a saxophonist. Les is a very fine person who has overcome a great deal of strife throughout his life. Stories of his troubled past and how he had overcome them were very inspirational to me. Les truly enjoys music and I'm sure it would be important to him even ended up working in another business. When listening to Les perform, it's obvious he was born to be a musician. For some, performing is "just another job," for Les, performing is very clearly a passion. In addition to being an exceptional performing artist, Les is a genuinely caring individual who lights up any room or situation he is part of. I consider myself very fortunate to have Les as a dear friend and as one artist to another I respect and appreciate all he brings to the profession.See MoreRead Less"

As a performing and recording guitarist/arranger, 30 yrs member of DAYBREAK, ( https://www.facebook.com/Daybreak.Hamilton http://www.daybreakmusik.com https://twitter.com/DaybreakMusik ), I make a point to try and see Leslie whenever I am in Florida. I find him to have flawless jazz chops, great stage presence, impeccable musical taste and surprising versatility. He also strikes me as a perfect gentleman, with no hint of an ego problem - too often, rare qualities in the music environment.
In fact, I consider the couple of times that I had the pleasure of jamming with Leslie the high-lights of my trip. My band-mates and I wish him a continued, well deserved success!

I first encountered Leslie hosting an Open Mic night at the Celtic Ray in Punta Gorda. Subsequently, I enjoyed his musical prowess at a few other venues, where he proved to me a multi-talented musician, on flute, saxophones and vocals. His training, knowledge and experience always come through, and his personable stage presence is the conduit for an enjoyable show. He features standards in pop, jazz and blues, and should be enjoyed "live" to fully appreciate what he brings. My wife and I were so impressed with his talents that we hired Leslie to provide the entertainment at our wedding.See MoreRead Less"

I met Leslie at Vino Loco, in Englewood, FL, where he was singing, playing the saxophone, and also playing the flute a few years ago. Since then I've seen him play and lead an open mic night at The Celtic Ray Irish Pub that was a big hit. He is very personable and a fantastic musician and versatile in what he can play. He draws you into what he is playing and makes you feel as if he is playing for you alone. He has a true connection with the crowd he is playing to and for. I would highly recommend him to play for any event or club.See MoreRead Less"

Leslie is one of the musicians whose work was touted about town earning my interest. I discovered he had a good following but hadn't been in the area very long. I interviewed Mr. DaCosta on my radio show, Culture Coast, where we speak to the area's rising stars. If you wish to check out the show and hear a sampling of his music, check out www.radioearnetwork.com, Culture Coast archives and click on Leslie DaCosta. You will be pleased with his talent.See MoreRead Less"

Leslie is a consummate performer. He is very versatile, too. He can play the sax, the guitar, speak entertainingly and sing! He also promotes the arts and artists. He has been running the Open Mike at The Celtic Ray in Punta Gorda. He gave me the opportunity to showcase my new book, "Theodore And More!" and invited me to read my poetry. He also posted the readings on the internet. I greatly appreciated this.See MoreRead Less"

I have known Les D'Acosta for four years and I am always delighted to go see him play. Les has a velvet sound of his saxophone and flute played against some of the great classics of all time. He knows how to entertain and engage the crowd and he always does a great performance that is well received by the audience. I highly recommend Les as an entertainer for your venue or party occasion!"
