Noah Munro Lehrman started his formal training on drums and percussion in New York City at age twelve, and a just few years later was touring college campuses with punk-pop band Sonic Aardvark. After studying music theory at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island where he was a founding member of the avante jazz trio SAAG, Noah returned to NYC to devote himself to full-time drumset study at the world renowned Drummers' Collective. It was after traveling the Middle East learning and playing traditional ethnic percussion, klezmer and sacred music with The Shalom Rav Band that Noah founded The Grove, The New York Psychedelic Folk-Rock Funk Jamband™, named for the setting of mystical communion, at the turn of the millenium.

With his bands and as a solo artist Noah has had the privlidge of playing with such legendary performers and childhood icons as Jerry Garcia Band, Melvin Seals, Babatundi Olatunji (Drums of Passion) and T.M. Stevens, among many more, and he has shared the stage with such hot contemporary acts as Umphrey's McGee, The Slip, The Zen Tricksters, Schleigho, The Disco Biscuits, Psychedelic Breakfast, Raisinhill, Rana, ulu, Fat Mama, Japan's Big Frog, and many, many more, and been featured on the pages of Relix, Time Out New York, The Village Voice,, and JamBase. He has been regularly featured in such legendary venues as New York City's late-great Wetlands, where he drummed in their last house bands, and bicoastal avant-garde powerhouse Knitting factory. Three years ago Noah became the Founder and the Musical and Artistic Director of the AppleJam Music Festival Series in New York City's Le Bar Bat, the fabled multi-level and multi-stage studio-turned-venue where the Grateful Dead recorded their classic album "Go to Heaven."

In 2002 Noah was recruited and signed as a Pro Artist Endorser by Silver Fox Percussion and Grover Pro Percussion in recognition of his reputation as a rhythmic powerhouse on the Jam Scene! Noah plays Silver Fox SF-515 drumsticks with Delrin tips.

Noah plays acoustic and electronic drumsets and percussion (including Sonor Force Custom and Roland V-Pro kits, dumbek, darbouka, djembe and talking drum) in a broad range of styles (from jazz and rock to funk and jam to ambient and ethnic to bluegrass and klezmer), contexts (from studio and soundtrack sessions to live club, theatre and arena dates) and arrangements (from full electric band and percussion ensemble to small comobo and solo performances).

This month Noah was an artist alumni guest at the
World Premiere screening of “Wetlands Preserved:
The Story of An Activist Club”, which closed out
the inaugural Green Apple Music and Arts Festival in
New York City over Earth Day weekend. The new
documentary film tells the history of, and features
archival performances from, the socially and
environmentally committed venue that helped launch
the renaissance of Jam music in the ‘90’s and where
Noah’s group The Grove served as house band
from the turn of the millennium to the Wetlands’
premature closing on September 10, 2001.
