ADELANTO, Calif. — The Popular High Desert group, Stone Stanley will headline the “Hot Summer Nights” Series’ Country Night at Adelanto Stadium on August 11.
The family-friendly event is free to the public and Stone Stanley is scheduled to take the stage at 8:00 pm. Hot Summer Nights includes a Car Show, Art Show, Kids Zone, and Comedians. Gates open at 3pm, with free stadium parking.
Jason Robert is the singer/songwriter/guitarist who fronts Stone Stanley. He recently celebrated the release of the band’s latest video “Bitter End” from their acclaimed album The Mudstomp Tapes, in front of a SRO audience at The Hilltop in Apple Valley. Bitter End, Roberts explains, is “a Crossroads-like tale which focuses on pleasure over burden, longevity over burnout. Hardship and adversity are overcome with perseverance, in music and in life.” The LA Music Critic in their “Ten (Plus Five) Amazing Videos Released in June” column, writes, “We love the down-home flavor of “Bitter End” and think you will too.” Bitter End was released to the public via You Tube on June 23.
Bitter End is one of the twelve tracks that comprise The Mudstomp Tapes, Stone Stanley’s 2017 album which has received great reviews both in the U.S. and abroad. Robert describes the Mudstomp sound as “a very muddy sound predicated on the back-beat of drums and distorted acoustic guitars with a lot of re-verb on the drums and vocals. It’s something that has organically grown out of my solo work. The feeling is one of stomping through the Desert during a Mid-Summer rain on a Saturday night.” Musically, Robert says, “it encompasses an eclectic mix of blues, folk, rock, and a hint of reggae, that takes on a life of its own.”
The big SoCal festivals are taking notice: Jason Robert and Stone Stanley make their debut at the Long Beach-based New Blues Festival V this Labor Day weekend and play the 6th Annual Woodystock Blues-Rock Festival in Apple Valley in October. Watch for the release of Robert’s upcoming album, “The Death Of Stone Stanley,” this Fall.
