Lebert Lombardo (February 11, 1905 – June 16, 1993) was a musician with the Royal Canadians and the younger brother of Guy Lombardo.
Lombardo was born in London, Ontario, Canada. With his brother Carmen, Lebert was a member of the original Royal Canadians, playing trumpet, cornet, and drums, and occasionally singing. His younger brother Victor Lombardo joined the band later, although Victor was never a partner; ownership of the band remained with the three older brothers.
After Guy Lombardo's death in 1977, Lebert's son Bill briefly assumed the role of bandleader. They both retired a few years later, ending the involvement of the Lombardo family in the band.
