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.

Some news! 

Finally, it appears things are beginning to open up a bit... we've been hit hard here in New York, but aside from the Zero gig at the Debonair Ballroom in Teaneck, NJ opening up for Mike Tramp of White Lion on September 5th, it looks like the outdoor venues are starting to contact us to play. That being said, my big news for tonight is that LOSING OUR FACULTIES will be performing on August 12th from my living room as we stream on Facebook Live through the Tarrytown Music Hall Facebook page! It's a 6:00 pm show... we will be honoring the 2020 Sleepy Hollow High School Graduating Class and we are encouraging all viewers and fans, especially in the Tarrytown-Sleepy Hollow, NY area to purchase dinner from a local restaurant and bring it home to enjoy while you watch us perform! We expect to be announcing actual live shows very soon. The poster below includes the link for our August 12th performance.

Some news... 

Hey, everyone... how are things going in your neck of the woods? I am outside of New York City, and even closer to New Rochelle, the "epicenter" of the Corona activity here in New York... there's some scary stuff going on... personally, I am ready to get back to normal, but working from home is amazing... that, I must admit! 

So, there is some news... amidst the cancellation of pretty much all of my gigs through August, I have been asked by ZERO to step in on bass for a September 5th gig opening up for the legendary Mike Tramp of White Lion (Wait, When the Children Cry, etc...). The show is September 5, 2020 at the Debonair Music Hall in Teaneck, New Jersey. Doors open at 7:00 pm. This is the rescheduled event from the May 2nd show that was postponed due to Covid. If you have tickets for May 2, they will be honored. I will post ticketing information when I have it available, but it is always best to order through ZERO's record label which is Chaotic Records. The link to the ZERO store is ZERO - Chaotic Records Website so keep checking for tickets and why not pick up a shirt while you are there?

Here's a picture from one of the last times I performed with ZERO... it has been a while and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get to continue with them! Time will tell!

Stay safe! ---Keith

 

Hey everyone! 

Hey, everyone! I hope you are all safe and healthy and avoiding this wicked virus. I see some states here in the USA are starting to open up and get back to doing some business, but it looks like live music venues are going to be among the last to reopen... It's frustrating as a musician because I have lost so many great gigs, but it is even more frustrating as a fan because there are no shows to go to! 

So, in the meantime, hang in there and hopefully soon there will be gigs to promote and maybe a Facebook Live performance from Losing Our Faculties!

Corona update... not the beer... 

Hey, everyone... going a little nutty not being able to play live, but I have been playing my guitar a lot, writing music, practicing and getting better... built a few pedal boards with some wood I bought at Lowe's and really digging the new board I put together...

Been trying to convince Losing Our Faculties to do a Facebook Live stream from either my garage or another location - doesn't seem like anyone is against it, and if it happens I will certainly post here with a link to the performance... it would be a lot of fun for certain!

LOF has been bantering through text about some new songs to play for our next show, whenever that will be... scheduled is April 24th at D&D's in New City, NY but who knows if that will actually happen. I sincerely hope it does. Then we are at Juan Murphy's in Poughkeepsie, NY on May 2nd and there are some special plans in store for that show! More details to come as we get closer!

Until next time, stay safe and healthy! Make good choices! ---Keith

Show Pictures from March 6 and 7 

LOSING OUR FACULTIES had a great weekend playing Friday night at New City Bowl in New City, NY (3-6-20) and then the following evening at Juan Murphy's in Poughkeepsie! The band was super-tight both nights and the Poughkeepsie crowd got a good dose of metal with our final set closing out with some AC/DC, Black Sabbath, and Iron Maiden... we had thrown in some Scorpions earlier and even played Europe's "The Final Countdown." Our next show is on April 24, 2020 at D&D's in New City, NY. Some video here as well as provided by Rockland Report who were on the scene to record and, well, report!

The Dad Rock Show - Interview Links and a random picture! 

I've been fortunate to be a guest on Joe D'Urso's Dad Rock Radio Show on Hudson River Radio. Joe is a great radio host, has a great sense of humor, and is always great to chat music with. I'd go on the show every Sunday night if he asked me to! Ha ha! I wanted to share the links to my two interviews with Joe, the first being back in September of 2019 when I was in studio as a member of FASTER THAN LIGHT and the more recent one last week as a member of ZERO promoting our show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on March 20 opening for THE MACHINE, a wicked-great Pink Floyd tribute band.

Four Concert Posters 

I've got three shows with Losing Our Faculties coming up in March and April and then I am rejoining ZERO for one night to open up for The Machine at the Starland Ballroom in Sayerville, NJ. I hope you can make it to one or all of the shows!

LOF at D&Ds - NEW CITY, NY 

LOSING OUR FACULTIES played at D&Ds in New City, NY on February 8th and it was an amazing show! The band played really well and the crowd was really into it! I am not sure what people expected, but the "one more song" chants came out at the end of the evening and we stunned everyone with a request for Iron Maiden's "The Trooper" - my fingers were killing me after that one, having played for a full three hours previous! Here are a couple of pictures from the show. I am hoping to add some video soon! We will be at New City Bowl in New City, NY on March 6th at 10:00 and the following night, March 7th, at Juan Murphy's in Poughkeepsie, NY!
