Country music has played a big part in Leo's life. Leo and his wife Pat have played and sang as a duo for many years. A couple of decades ago, Leo, his fellow members of the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club and Buck Warren came together to form the Marmora Country Jamboree. After a few successful years, a split occurred with the Lions Club carrying on the Jamboree in early summer at the Fairgrounds and Buck starting a new fall venture on leased property south of the village.
Leo was a driving force in booking entertainment and acting as emcee and host until the Lions passed the torch in 2017. Leo has acted as co-chair of the Lions open mic each fall and winter season and filled the role of sound technician. This event has carried on for nearly two decades.
As there was still a void in the summer months, Leo and his cohort Kevin Roy began and continue to chair the Marmora Music in the Park on Tuesday nights which has become highly successful.
Leo also plays a role in Cruise Nights on Thursdays throughout the summer months.
