Brief History of Lennon Studios
Lennon Studios a Woman owned business first opened it’s doors in 1984 on Capp Street in San Francisco's Mission District as Capp Street Studios, playing host to such bands as 4 Non Blondes, Chris Issacs, The Tubes, Faith No More, Dead Kennedys, Verbal Abuse, Flipper, L-7 & Death Angel. 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 and former Studio Instrument Rental Employee & local musician Jimmy Crucifix moved operations to Ninth Street in the South of Market area of San Francisco. 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. introduced in BAM magazine as: “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. We are a Real Rehearsal Studio and not some fly by night operation with a fancy web site better than our actual presence. What you see is what you get and at Lennon Studios that's the best.
