Monte's Bio

A lifelong musician, family man, country boy, lover of Jesus, and storyteller, Monte delights in entertaining an audience; whether its crooning Swing and Jazz standards, singing songwriter stories, entertaining the kids or leading people into an atmosphere of authentic worship.  Monte feels right at home behind a microphone with his guitar.


Monte performs with his band, as a solo artist, and with the swing, jazz and blues project “The Leister Quartet”.  You can catch Monte on Sunday mornings at FaithHouse.


Monte currently teaches music privately at Coffey music and in several private schools. He also leads a local jazz ensemble. 


When he is not helping to make music or ministry happen somewhere you can often find Monte in his favorite place, at home with his wife and their three children.
