Full Spectrum Jazz Big Band

Former Band Member: Tony Leach, Trombone

Tony Leach, Lead TromboneTony grew up in Boulder, Colorado, where he started playing trumpet in the 5th grade. A few years later, his band director advised him to switch instruments, since the trumpet was clearly not a good match for him. He took up the trombone, and has loved playing it ever since. Throughout high school he took advantage of every musical opportunity he could.

Tony moved to the Bay Area to attend Stanford, where he studied trombone with Mac Kenley and played in the Stanford Jazz Orchestra with Fred Berry, as well as the Stanford Symphony Orchestra. Through these, he has performed with Louis Bellson, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and John Faddis, as well as performing the Verdi Requiem in the Sydney Opera House. Other bay area music groups Tony performs with include Church of the Highlands and Children's Musical Theater of San José.
