Stan is originally from Middletown Conn.  As a kid, his mom insisted that he learn the guitar… after a year of lessons, he never put it down. Throughout high school, he was a member of  “The Critic’s Choice”; a rock band that stayed together for 5 years and achieved some notoriety in New England.

Upon graduation from Central Connecticut State College in 1973, he moved to Freehold New Jersey to work as a high school history teacher. There he met his half-brother, Heshy, and the two began playing music together in March of 1974. Acting upon the encouragement of some fellow teachers, the two played for a few small teacher get-togethers and then were persuaded to try out the sound in a bar. They landed a night at a dive called “The Happy Pickle”, in Red Bank. They liked the response and kept it going by getting a somewhat permanent gig at “The Red Ranch” (now Harpoon Willys), in Brielle.

The rest is history.  Both musicians have since retired from teaching and plan on playing their music together as long as they can.
