Lenny and Pete, once fierce rivals on the lacrosse field, discovered a harmonious connection through their shared love for guitars and music. Their musical journey began in 2020 with impromptu busking performances at various spots around Port Coquitlam, where they quickly captivated audiences and earned the moniker ‘Lenny & Pete.’ These local troubadours infuse their music with the rich traditions of southern and heartland rock, folk, blues and country.

Together, alongside their friend and drummer Brett they formed ‘Canyon Riders’, and later introducing Dan on bass and Andrew on keyboards to complete the lineup. With each performance, their mission is to conjure the perfect atmosphere that’ll have your feet tapping to their music.

Whether performing as ‘Lenny and Pete’ or as the ‘Canyon Riders,’ these versatile musicians have been keeping a hectic schedule, gracing venues, private gatherings, and other entertaining events throughout Metro Vancouver and various communities across British Columbia.

Available for live performances, sessions, special events & collaborations.

When in doubt…

Canyon Riders
