the Stan Erhart Band ...
A fun & funky mix of some of the finest musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area. This group throws down the jams, covering R&B, Rock, Blues, & Soul-Jazz classics, plus their own well crafted Originals. Tunes & genres are mixed & stirred to create the band's signature danceable 'stew'. Delivering tight energetic arrangements with great vocals is what they do best.
"Stan Erhart has a great voice, and really knows how to use tone and voicing on guitar."
John Orr, Daily News Arts and Entertainment Editor, San Jose Mercury News
"Stan has one of the finest voices in blues. And is very skilled with the guitar."
James Fox, Radio Host, Love Is The Song We Sing
"Soulful vocals ... scalding guitar!"
