The Stan Erhart Band

Stan Erhar band, san pedro square market, peralta adobe plazaI have to write about The Stan Erhart Band. These guys played the Peralta Adobe Plaza last night for the Shark Game. They were absolutely amazing. Their vocals and style took me back to the times when music was truly great. Eric Clapton, Greatful Dead, TP & the HB's (Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers), and my personal favorite from the set list, Merle Haggard's "okie from muskogee". I cannot say enough about these guys.

Stan's roots go back to the family farm in Kansas; where hard work and play were accompanied by John Deere tractors, V-8 cars, & country guitars. His brother's baritone horn was the first instrument, followed by guitar, vocals, sax, flute, and an interest in keyboards. He spent his college years playing in bands in Michigan, later moving to Chicago to play the clubs, and finally to San Francisco to form one of the busiest bands in the Bay Area. They have a grand ole time dishin' up..."A great big plate of roots rockin' blues with a little of everything on the side!"

San Francisco singer/songwriter Stan Erhart exists in that blues-rock space occupied by John Hiatt, Warren Zevon, and Dave Alvin. With his weary, gravelly voice, Erhart exists well outside of the pop mainstream, but should find fans among those who seek a rootsy, American style..."
