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.

We started! 

It's been a couple of years and I finally got my head into the right mindset to start recording the follow up to Faster Than Light's "Now We're Speaking French" which was released on March 31, 2017. 

Having started my second stint in the Zero band (NY-based), a conversation with guitarist Marco Ferreira (Zero, Goodbye Thrill) convinced me to begin recording the CD in his home studio. Drummer Doug Maresca and I took a few hours to go over drum tracks for the first two songs and literally days later we were in the studio to record the first two tracks. 

There is no timetable for the completion of the CD, which is as of now untitled. It should be a much quicker process than the debut CD with some record labels interested in this project and nudging for a quick turnaround. I am actually amazed that we took this first step... my head is really into the creative process right now and the CD will likely contain a bunch of songs that were written in the same time period as much of the first CD was written. There are some new songs as well, and I promise Jessica will make an appearance in the songs! 

Here are some pictures from the drum tracking and I will be posting more often since we are all in!

 

August 29 - Secret Gig! 

I know this sounds strange, but LOSING OUR FACULTIES has a "secret gig" in Pearl River, NY on August 29th at 9:00 pm. If you would like info on this gig, like the LOCATION, send an email to losingourfaculties@gmail.com and you will get all the pertinent info including the concert poster that is usually posted here!

See you Saturday night! ---Keith

In the meantime, here are some goofy pictures from the last rehearsal!

August 5th show and August 12th Live Stream 

Hey, everyone! I appreciate everyone who tuned in for the Losing Our Faculties live stream from the Tarrytown Music Hall on Wednesday, August 12th and especially for those who donated to the Music Hall - the band donated our earnings bck to the Music Hall as well. Tarrytown Music Hall is such an essential part of the fabric of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. The Hall's commitment to local theater and music, and their top notch concerts, really help make Tarrytown a special place. I know - I've lived there! So thank you again! We are so sorry that the sound quality was poor throughout... we had no way of knowing and feel horrible.

A week previous, on August 5th, Losing Our Faculties played an outdoor show at Horan's Landing in Sleepy Hollow. It was our first time playing live since who knows when! It was a blast and the crowd was spectacular. It was such a hot day that I actually wore a bathing suit and had every intention of jumping into the Hudson River after the show, but I didn't... I won't make that mistake again! Here are some pictures from the show.

August 5th and we're back! 

Just wanted to share the next Losing Our Faculties gig info with you all! See you on Wednesday, August 5 at Horan's Landing in Sleepy Hollow from 6pm to 8pm... bring lawn chairs, socially distance, and there will be ice cream and hot dogs for sale... maybe even purchase a LOF shirt?

 

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!
