Keith LeBlanc

Real Name:Keith A. LeBlanc
Profile:

Hi-tech drummer/producer. Founder of Blanc Records. Died 4 April 2024. aged 69

Beginning in 1979, Leblanc, along with Doug Wimbish (bass), & Skip Macdonald (guitar), formed the core of the house band for Sugarhill Records, based in Englewood, NJ.
Their tight & precise playing can be heard on the vast majority of the label's output.
His drumming is unique for his bassdrum approach, which consisted of very precise 16th notes. His hi-hat approach was also unique, in that he rarely played straight 8th's or 16th's, but rather syncopated patterns which were considered modern at the time.

In 1984, LeBlanc left Sugarhill to produce/arrange for Tommy Boy Records. In 1987, he formed Tackhead with Adrian Sherwood.
