STAN - Live at The Black Horse

  • The Black Horse 68 Front Street Whitley Bay, England, NE25 8DP United Kingdom (map)

STAN - it’s a band not a man! The legendary North East guitar 4 piece with an uncanny knack for producing “insanely catchy” songs which will “…simultaneously tug at the heartstrings while exercising the brain.”

They formed in Newcastle in the late 90s and were memorably described at an early appearance as “…like Crowded House on steroids!” Drummer Dave Pipkin pulled together the threads that make up STAN with singer Colin Burrows, guitarist Dave Kennedy and bass player Rob Tickell.

Rumour has it that the band drew inspiration for their name from Newcastle's Stanhope Street, previously home to both Colin and Hank Marvin. The initial suggestion of The Stanhope Street Creatures was subsequently shortened to STAN.
