Stan discovered his vocal talent as a teenager singing street corner “doo wop” in his hometown of Philadelphia in a rock and roll group called “Mike and the Angels”.
Among many venues, he has notably sung at the New York International Music
Festival; the Rampart Casino in Las Vegas opening for the 50s rock & roll group, The Comets (of Bill Haley fame), in April 2006; the nationally renowned Proctors Theatre in Schenectady; the Fort William Henry Resort in Lake George, NY, The Egg in Albany, NY, and on cruise lines as an amateur before going professional.
Stan’s versatility takes him one moment from a variety of Broadway show tunes to authentically-performed ‘50s rock and roll songs, then onto some of the most challenging operatic arias… all in one show, Broadway Meets the Met in the 50s and 60s.
Stan began singing (Bach B Minor) in Temple University's Men's Choir at the Academy of Music with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy. He performed (singing and dancing) in South Pacific while at Temple University. He performed "50's" rock-and-roll in a vocal group while in his teens in Philadelphia at teen dance "halls" (and even at his high school graduation)!
Stan began performing at numerous local venues (e.g. Glen Sanders Mansion in Schenectady, Pruyn House in Colonie, The College of St. Rose at St. Joseph Hall in Albany, Sage College at Bush Memorial Hall in Troy, East Greenbush Library, Schenectady County Library, Albany Jewish Community Center, TV Channel 16 [SACC-TV] in Schenectady before going professional. Stan performed operatic repertoire and Broadway songs as a member of an Ensemble group in Albany and was also a member of an a cappella doo wop group from the Capital Region.
Stan’s coaches have included accomplished international opera singers, and cruise line vocal entertainers. His repertoire spans operatic pieces (Italian, Russian, French, and English), a wide variety of Broadway show tunes, and “authentic oldies” rock & roll.
Stan also manages a doo wop group, called the Flipsydz. Click here to see the site.
