Leanna Collins

Owner and Entertainment Director

From bringing in renowned jazz musicians to scouting and hosting local Michigan bands and artists to performing herself, Leanna is the heart and soul of Torch Lake Café’s live music scene.

Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Leanna’s love and innate talent for music became apparent in her early childhood piano lessons. From there, she went on to become a talented guitar and vocalist performing both as a soloist and in ensembles throughout her formidable career in music. 

Torch Lake and the Torch Lake Cafe play a large role in Leanna’s life; after moving into her family’s Torch Lake cabin at the age of 15, Leanna took a position cooking in what is now the Torch Lake Cafe kitchen, while building her music career performing at beloved local musical venues like Molly Malone’s. Throughout her career ranging from Mackinaw Island to the Cayman Islands, Leanna has worked with Shel Silverstein, sang with Rod Stewart, warmed up the Thompson Twins and Rory Block, sang with big bands and choirs, performed at festivals, weddings and appeared on radio and television programs.

Leanna lived and worked in Key West, Florida, for many years, and is overjoyed to be home in Torch Lake, turning the light back on at the corner of M88 and US-31. She is passionately dedicated to creating dynamic music events and loves nothing more than playing at the restaurant both with her band,

Ivan Greilick

Music has been a part of Ivan’s life for as long as he can remember. His childhood centered around music, learning to play the drums at age 5 and finding his lifelong passion for the guitar at age 10. As a teenager, Ivan began playing for live shows and that was when he knew he wanted to spend his life playing music.

Over the last 40 years, Ivan has recorded and toured with many artists and played many genres, including blues, early soul, R&B, rock, jazz, and country. Torch Lake Café is lucky to have Ivan’s talents live in our restaurant most Friday and Saturday nights.
