Lennon Studios first opened it’s doors in 1984 on Capp Street in San Francisco as Capp Street Studios playing host to such bands as Dead Kennedys, Verbal Abuse, Flipper, Chris Issaks, Mentors, L-7, Faith No More, Death Angel & 4 Non Blondes. Owner Carole Lennon started the Studios so her two young boys Frankie and Andrew (who were in bands at that time) would have a safe place to rehearse. In 1992 having outgrown that location Carole along with her manager at the time & former Studio Instrument Rental Employee & local musician Jimmy Crucifix moved to Ninth Street in the South of Market area of S.F. Here Lennon Rehearsal & Music Services was unleashed and introduced the very first late night music store & the very first fully equipped rehearsal rooms in S.F. called “The New York Special” since all the studios in New York had gear in their rooms and the studios in S.F. did not. We then opened a second location dedicated strictly to monthly lockout & music education studios. At Lennon we still continue to provide the local musicians with quality hourly rehearsal and we still have the fully equipped New York Special running 7 days a week. Setting the standards in rehearsal for Over 30 years and helping local musicians reach their goals is what we’re all about.
