Debbie Lett - Lead Vocals
I started singing at the age of 3, or as my family would say, "As soon as she opened her mouth!" Lol! So singing for me was second nature. I've never had a voice lesson, nor have I sung professionally, but what I did was study, with the help of my favorite artists growing up listening to their albums over and over again! Barbra Streisand, Pat Benatar, & Whitney Houston we're a huge influence on my vocal range, as I would try to imitate them to a tee, with success.
All through my school years, I performed in plays, numerous choir performances, and being asked to sing at family weddings. Although I
would like to say that through my early years I pursued a singing career, that did not happen. Life got in the way.
As the saying goes, "There's a reason for everything", settling down in Florida, I started singing karaoke at our Community Clubhouse and was gaining the support of everyone. I was blessed with beautiful friendships. Within the 2yrs of living in Florida, I've auditioned for
The Voice, and got 2 call backs, and I have been asked to sing in multiple bands. I have now put together my own band with the help of Mr.
Tony Ravida & MJ Johnson to whom I owe everything! So sit back, and enjoy the ride!
Please Welcome, "DLB" "TheDebbieLettBand"
Tony Ravida - Drums & Vocals
Self taught drummer, which is probably why he plays backwards! A righty who learned to play left handed. Started professional drumming at the age of 16, playing in various bands in the Albany N.Y. area. After a semi prolonged retirement from playing, decided it was time to form a group when he met the very talented Debbie Lett , at karaoke here in Tampa.
Gary Schurman - Keyboard & Vocals
Born in Canada and played bass guitar and keyboards in several rock and blues bands in my teens and twenties. Became a US citizen in the early 2000s and located in New Port Richey with my wife Carol. I have played keyboards in several Pasco and Pinellas area bands such as The Cadillacs, Time Bandits, Southland, Salt Water Cowboys and a couple of duo acts, and performed in many local bars and festivals. Several months ago I was invited to join the Debbie Lett Band (family) and now enjoy my role as their keyboard player.
Brett Sample - Bass Guitar & Vocals
I grew up in Michigan. I was born with a genetic condition where I have no usable vision. I am legally blind. But, I had a great career in music
for 30 years. Touring as a sideman all over the world. Working as an engineer, producer, composer and bassist. I also won several awards. I
retired in 2012 then in 2017, in an unlikely conversation with Tony Ravida, I, my wife Kitty and my Guide Dog Ziva joined DLB.
Geoff Cox - Lead & Acoustic Guitar
I was born in Rochester, New York where I grew up on a steady diet of album-oriented rust belt rock and roll with a strong Canadian influence. Over the years, my musical influences have become much more diverse, and that's one of the great qualities of this band: its versatility. It constantly pushes me out of my comfort zone and keeps me growing as a musician, even at this stage. It also helps to have two very musical school-age daughters who continue to expose me to new music. I live in Wesley Chapel with my wife and daughters, and I am extremely thankful for their unwavering support of this hobby that takes up so much of my time. I couldn't do it without them.
