Rock and roll with no apologies...

Keith Lenn is no stranger to the Rockland County, NY live music scene. He is one of the area's most recognizable bassists and guitarists, having played in several locally iconic bands (Detour, Threshold, Red Thunder, The Boulevard). From punk and pop to rock and metal, Keith delivers the goods each and every night with his high energy stage presence and "no apologies" rock and roll attitude. Keith currently plays guitar for the original pop-rock band Faster Than Light, bass guitar for Losing Our Faculties, and bass guitar for No Apologies.

EPIC NIGHT AT TARRYTOWN'S SET BACK INN! 

It's one of the most epic shows Losing Our Faculties has ever played! It was familiar territory for LOF as we tore the roof off of the Set Back Inn in Tarrytown, NY. Fun fact: The Setback Inn was the first venue outside of the school we work at where we played a gig close to a decade ago... Fast forward many years later... last night was special - such an amazing crowd, packed from the door to the edge of the bar, LOF smashed and hammered, making new friends, new fans, forever setting the bar higher than it has ever been for any band looking to play at the Set Back Inn... the band was curiously amazing... we were on fire all night... the little mistakes that happen in a live performance were there, but they were so minor... the enthusiasm the band had covered them, made us look human even though we felt superhuman that night! ... two new songs introduced... Crazy On You by Heart and Callin' Baton Rouge by Garth Brooks... a rendition of Iron Maiden's The Trooper... opening the third set with back to back AC/DC songs Thunderstruck and It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock And Roll)... we had never done that before and it was an "audible" called by the band... And then the show was over and we were sad... we realized that our next time on stage together will not be until January 11th at Tarrytown Music Hall for the annual Sleepy Hollow Performing Arts Boosters... Here are a couple of pictures from our Epic Night!

"You take my life but I'll take yours too..."

International Pop Overthrow - NYC 

On Saturday, November 9th, I was fortunate to play my third International Pop Overthrow concert with my good pals in Sonny Lee and The Layovers! My first IPO as a "Layover" was in Hollywood/Los Angeles at Molly Malone's in July of 2011 and then I was lucky enough to play at the Brooklyn IPO at Bar Matchless in 2013. They were both great gigs and Saturday night at Piano's in NYC down on the lower East Side was a blast! I was really impressed with the crowd and the quality of bands that I saw - The Lilacs, from Chicago, were incredible as was Rose Cora Perry and the Truth Untold from London, Ontario, Canada! Both bands were simply awesome. I wish I could have stayed for the entire night, but with a sick daughter at home and a detour to Katz's Deli at the end of the block, well... anyway, here are some pictures from the gig.

LOSING OUR FACULTIES T-SHIRTS! 

You've been asking for LOSING OUR FACULTIES t-shirts? We listened! We've teamed up with graphic artist David Greenberg (who also happens to be the bassist for FASTER THAN LIGHT) and created a very cool LOSING OUR FACULTIES logo t-shirt... you know the logo well by now - the shirts will have the orange flames logo on a black background...and we should have them for our November 16 gig at the Set Back Inn in Tarrytown, NY! The cost will be just $15 and we have printed sizes M, L, and XL! Get one before they are gone! Dare I say that they could become collector's items?

You'll definitely want one of our logo t-shirts! Get one at the Set Back Inn in Tarrytown, NY on November 16th!

Sleepy Hollow and Poughkeepsie gigs 

I haven't had the opportunity to sit down and write about the LOSING OUR FACULTIES gigs from the Sleepy Hollow Block party on October 25th and the Hurricane Wings and Grill show on October 26th until now. They were both great gigs in their own ways - the band played fantastically both nights and we really lucked out with the weather. It looked like the Sleepy Hollow gig, which was outdoors, was going to be played on a real cold night, but the temperature seemed to have warmed up a bit once we began and it proved to be a comfortable night. 

Sleepy Hollow Block Party - October 25, 2019

LOSING OUR FACULTIES had been looking forward to this gig for a long while and it was an amazing evening. We played for almost three hours to an amazing crowd of Tarrytowners and Sleepy Hollow residents, met people who traveled up from some of the other Rivertowns on the train line and even some who made the trip up from New York City. If you have never been to the Block Party or Haunted Hayride, and you live in travel distance, well... let's just say that no town does Halloween better than Sleepy Hollow, NY - and for obvious reasons! I've acquired some pictures of LOF at the Block party and have posted them below.

Batgirl - violin, Indiana Jones - guitar/vocals, The Incredible Hulk - drums, Oscar the Grouch - bass

Amazing crowd!

I need a shave desperately here! Was just too lazy!

Hurricane Wings and Grill - Poughkeepsie, NY October 26, 2019

LOSING OUR FACULTIES played at Hurricane Wings and Grill for the first time and while the crowd was on the smaller side, I was amazed and humbled at how many of my friends came up and supported the band - some of my friends drove more than hour to get there and that is just simply amazing... no other word to describe it. Even before I talk about the gig, I have to say that the food was amazing! Ironically, I did not order the wings, but they looked and smelled so good. I had a steak sandwich with Pepper Jack cheese and it was absolutely fantastic! I might even take the hour drive and bring my family up for dinner sometime! Getting back to the gig, the space that we had to set up and play was awesome - better than most places we play - not cramped at all, room to spread out... we had some people sitting right up in front of the band and many watching from the bar as well as their booths... the band was really on fire - we were tight and we usually are when we play the second night of back-to-back shows... It's a venue that I would love to play again! There are some pictures below... check out all that space! We were even able to hang the banner!

Tons of space... no costumes though!

I look really unhappy in these two photos, but that certainly was not the case... maybe just a little tired, but I had a blast!

It's something I definitely need to work on! You never know when the camera is going to click!

Disney Event in Sleepy Hollow! 

On Sunday, October 13, 2019 Losing Our Faculties had the honor of playing a corporate event for Disney at the First Annual Sleepy Hollow Film Festival at Kingsland Point Park in Sleepy Hollow, NY! We were thrilled to play for a special group of hardcore Disney Fan Club members and we were even more thrilled that the event turned out to be an amazing experience for the patrons, the band, and for Disney! It was just an awesome day all around!

Stark Industries, The Incredible Hulk, and Deadpool represented here! Brittney was just Brittney!

LOF ROCKS WALDEN MX 

September 28, 2019 - Losing Our Faculties played its first show ever at WALDEN MX in Wallkill, NY! And it was, dare I say, EPIC! It's likely the most fun this band ever had on stage and that's saying a lot! We didn't play perfectly, but the amount of fun we had negated any sour note or missed arrangement! I would take this performance ten out of ten times. I look horrible and fat in the pictures, even though I'm not fat! It's just a side view and the angle...

Keith on the Dad Rock Show! 

On Sunday night, 09-15-19, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Joe D'Urso and joining him as the special guest for his Dad Rock Radio Show on www.HudsonRiverRadio.com - I actually ran into him and his family earlier that day at a sporting goods store, and we looked at each other quite queerily, both thinking we were that other person that would be in the studio later in the evening. It was possibly the most fun I ever had doing a radio spot - I was there for two and a half hours and it could had gone on for another two and a half hours had it not been for the late hour! 

You will really enjoy this interview! The link is right here --> Dad Rock Interview with Keith Lenn and Joe D'Urso
