In 1973 the Lenny Mack Band exploded on the LA scene. From the celeb hideout in Marina Del Ray, The Basement, to The Starwood and The Greek Theater, the band wowed crowds with their over the top Rock N’ Roll prowess. After 2 years of 70s excess and unable to score the elusive major label deal, the band called it quits. However, that was just the beginning of an impressive musical career for band namesake and front man, Leonard Macaluso, aka Lenny Mack. Lenny went on to land the prestigious gig as musical director for iconic diva Tina Turner. He penned chart topping hits for other A-listers including Rebbie Jackson, (You Send The Rain Away), Booker T Jones (Down To The Wire), Rita and Priscilla Coolidge (Down To The Wire), Robin Zander, and Taka Boom (Dancin’ Night). In 1987 Lenny ventured into TV writing You Can Count On Me, the theme song to the NBC hit sitcom My Two Dads. Fast forward to 2014… Fervor Records unearths an unbelievable treasure-trove of lost 1970s recordings from the bands’ sessions at LA’s Golden Sound Studios. Experience the original Rock and Roll Fever of the Lenny Mack Band, available here on iTunes.
