    Stanstock story:  We 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 70's 80's 90's,” 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 8000 avid members, a virtual community was built, and continues to grow.  With the tremendous success of the Facebook page, Stan dreamed of bringing the online community together in a live music event.  In October 2013, our first annual event, the dream was realized and came to be known as STANSTOCK!   Stanstock patrons, musicians and volunteers continue to support two Baltimore-based charities by donating 100% of net proceeds to the Nicole Van Horn Trust Fund and Catch A Lift.  More importantly, all fundraising objectives have been exceeded year after year!  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 2021!
