STAN LEWIS, known to many as Stan "The Record Man" Lewis or “Uncle Stan”, owner of Stan's Record Store, will be turning 87 years “young” this year. On March 8, UNSCENE! pays tribute and reminisces about the career and impact of STAN LEWIS - a local living legend and national icon in the music industry. The event “brings back” musicians who got their start at the hands of Stan, either because he co-wrote songs, recorded and published them, distributed them, and / or sold the records.
