Carey Zieglers Expensive Hobby at Stanstock 2014

Baltimore, Maryland, October 1, 2015We came together through the dream of Stan Gibson, a local musician, fan and compassionate humanitarian.  He created a Facebook page called, “Baltimore Bands from the 70s 80s 90s,” with the intention of bringing together musicians, fans, music venues and members of the vibrant golden age of LIVE music in the Baltimore Metro area.  With a little help from his friends, and over 6800 avid members, a virtual community was built.  With the tremendous success of the Facebook page, Stan dreamed of bringing the online community together in a live music event. 

In October 2013, and November 2014, our first and second annual event, respectively, the dream was realized and came to be known as STANSTOCK!  The results produced over the past two events were beyond our imaginings.  Relationships were renewed as bands, fans and the nightclub community from “back in the day” were reunited.  More importantly, we met our fundraising objectives and presented all net proceeds to two charities, both years.  The dream continues with the 3rd Annual Stanstock.  All musicians gather together and donate their time and talents to this worthy cause along with the all-volunteer staff who work on this project throughout the year.  Join us for STANSTOCK 2015!

The Dream continues…STANSTOCK 2015!  This year we have selected two worthy charities who will receive 100% of our net proceeds.  In addition to supporting The Nicole Van Horn Trust Fund, we are bringing the Catch A Lift Fund into our mission.  Stanstock 2015, will feature 27 Regional musical favorites on two stages.  Artists scheduled to perform include Rob Fahey & The Pieces, Leather & Lace, Mark Bray & The Steel Soul Cowboys, The Kelly Bell Band and Eliza Doering & The Penny Black, just to name a few.  Please go to for complete artist listing and schedule.
