Stanley’s 10-piece band includes Rafael “Hoffa” Moreira on guitar and backing vocals, Sean Hurley playing bass, Alex Alessandroni and Ely Rise on keyboards, KISS-man Eric Singer on drums and backing vocals, Ramon Yslas on percussion, Jon Papenbrook leading horns, and Nelson Beato, Crystal Starr and Ayana Layli on backing vocals.
Earlier this year Stanley explained why he’s bringing his passion for soul music to the stage.
“We’re living in a time of being fed canned pre-programmed backing tracks and lip-syncing in place of the electricity and passion of real live R&B,” Stanley said. “When I was a boy, before I ever saw The Who or Led Zeppelin, I saw Solomon Burke and Otis Redding. I saw The Temptations and all that music is part of the foundation of the music I’ve made. Soul Station is my chance to celebrate it for a night that’s real, live and faithfully recreates the sound with the respect it deserves. Whether it’s The Stylistics, The Dramatics, The Temptations, Smokey and the Miracles, Blue Magic and on, these songs, arrangements and sound just blow you away.”
Having played West Hollywood’s legendary Roxy Theatre in September, Stanley will take Soul Station to the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano Feb. 26; The Canyon in Agoura Hills Feb. 27 and the brand new venue called The Rose in San Bernardino Feb. 28.
