Meet the Band
Leslie Nalley - Lead Vocals and Keys
Hey guys! Thanks for clicking to learn a little bit more about AfterDark. My name is Leslie Nalley. I sing lead vocals and play keys for the band. I've been singing and playing in public since around the age of 3. In addition to singing and playing keys, I also play a little guitar, a little ukulele and the trumpet. I hold a bachelors degree in music education from Anderson University in South Carolina....go Trojans! Speaking of South Carolina, that's where I'm from originally. I consider myself blessed to have called Ohio home for the past 11 years. I've been married to my husband, John, for almost 2 years now. I have 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren. We reside in Willard with my youngest daughter, a grandson, a couple of dogs, a cat, a cow and a bunch of chickens. When I'm not playing music or taking care of our min-farm, I'm teaching piano and voice at Musician's Alley in Sandusky, or serving on the worship team at The Chapel in Norwalk. If you have any questions, please drop me a line. Hope to see you soon at one of our shows!
