Lenny has been a singing actor, mime, and new vaudevillian performer since 1975. Many may remember him from his work with the nationally recognized & award winning comedy troupe, "The Wright Bros."
In 2007 Lenny fell in love with the music often referred to as The Great American Songbook or Jazz Standards. More specifically, it was the recordings of Frank Sinatra that ignited this new chapter to Lenny's performing art career. Being a child of the '60s & '70s and growing up with his generation’s rock and pop, he was focused on the music of the Beatles and others during the British Music Cultural Invasion. It wasn't until the Spring of 2007, when Lenny brought home a Classic Sinatra CD to play for his mother in law as she was dealing with memory loss. This was her generation's music that she loved ... as she struggled to remeber events within the last hour, she enjoyed singinging along with every familiar lyric and melody.
Lenny continued to play the music and was hooked. The Frank Sinatra Songbooks great arrangements, vocal interpretations, and recordings were a treasure to behold. He became so enraptured by this great music that he began to study it intensely. It's resulted in a touring show titled, “Make Em Laugh, with a Song in Their Hearts”.
Lenny performs hundreds of shows and musical events each year at nightclubs, restaurants, weddings, reunions, anniversaries, and at numerous senior centers, and independent & assisted living facilities throughout New England.
