Stan's roots go back to the family farm in Kansas; where
hard work and play were accompanied by John Deere
tractors, V-8 cars, & country guitars. His brother's
baritone horn was the first instrument, followed by guitar,

traveling to Chicago for club work -- later moving to
Chicago, and finally to San Francisco to form one of the
hardest working bands in the Bay Area. They have a
