We are very pleased to announce that this year we move to the newley revamped Dingwalls in Camden, now renamed The Camden Powerhaus. All the fave acts will be joining Lenny as well as many special guests and a star turn or two. Expect a show never to be forgotten. For tickets please click the link :
The Voices Project
A 14 Track Album
Over the past year I have been fiddling about with some delicious voices, some more well known than others. That fiddling about has turned into an album's worth of tracks called The Voices Project.
This is a long player of 14 tracks composed and produced by myself inspired by the voices I have sampled. These range from interviews with Tom Baker, Richard Burton, Eartha Kitt and David Coverdale to documentaries like I'm Your Number One Fan, and movies featuring Ben Kingsley, Bob Hoskins and Viggo Mortenson. They are all distinctive voices that have inspired very different compositions. I've never released anything like this before but so far the reaction has been really positive.
You can listen for free and also buy and download the album at Bandcamp. Please click the button below.
After Lenny began his Twitch.TV journey in November 2020 hoisting shows, quizzes and allowing the likes of Queenie, Lyn and The Mayor to sit in for him, Steve decided to start streaming as himself.
The shows have become a very warm platform for the community of viewers (the Furious - The Furst & The Furious - geddit?!?) to share clips and videos. Through the Discord channel people leave their suggestions for the regular items; The Furst Fantasy Festival, The Museum of Detritus, Curiosity Corner.
The shows are most days of the week - evenings and sometimes lunchtimes too.
Come and have a visit :
The Fabulous Doctor Singer - a radio drama
Just before everything went nuts, I went to Dublin to record a lovely radio play about the Shanahan Stam auction Scandal - its a classic conman story - based on a true tale of a flamboyant huckster called Dr Paul Singer who came to Ireland to swindle money. It is written and directed by Niall Murphy and is the kind of story crying out to be made into a movie. I play Dr Singer and based the voice on my own late father.
The play is up on the Newstalk website
Its on spotify also - https://open.spotify.com/episode/4fUGRSQpJL3UGHQimde4y8?si=z18CW0PbQz6NoZkeT_w-yA
Lenny Beige YouTube Channel
Since the Lockdown began, at the end of March, Lenny Beige has been very busy presenting twice weekly shows which started life as a mixture of songs, gags and shout-outs to the viewers. By week 5 it was decided to make the Tuesday shows an interview-based format with a few songs, with the Friday night shows continuing as they had before. They started life being filmed on the phone streaming to Facebook Live and Instagram (when technology would allow) but we upgraded to a Mevo camera which is a dedicated streaming camera that acts like a TV gallery where you can cut from a wide to a close up shot and pan across the frame too. The Beige Family very kindly contributed their own money to buy this piece of kit to increase their viewing pleasure
The end result is a new YouTube Channel with content from the past 5 weeks' shows with more vintage footage being added too. We shall be changing the shows we do in the future, but, rest assured, we shall be updating and enlarging the Beige body of work.
