LilFest Outdoor Concert/PotLuck with James Lee Stanley
James Lee Stanley will make TWO performances in Mount Vernon during the week of May 8. A performer-houseguest of LilFest, one performance will be an informal outdoor concert in the style of a house concert and the second will be at the Palisades Café as an intimate Dinner and Show event. James, known for his engaging candidness and unparalleled musicianship, has a "facile voice which makes easy climbs into falsetto, glides through his accustomed tenor, and occasionally drops into a full baritone." -Rocky Mountain News, Denver, CO. Stanley has not performed in Mount Vernon since he opened the LilFest Series in 2011. He is comfortable in any venue, on the TV and film stage set, and amphitheater: "His comedy and songs won the hearts of the 6,000 in attendance and brought them to their feet in an ovation that brought him back for two encore numbers." - Daily Universe, Provo, Utah Recently he performed in the Grammy Museum in LA, featuring his lifetime work from TV, years touring with Peter Tork of the Monkees and John Batdorf of Batdorf & Rodney, and his series of critically acclaimed acoustic arrangements of the songs of the Rolling Stones and The Doors. Indeed "James Lees version of Drive My Car from his Apocaloptimist CD is fresh, original and brilliant." -Brooke Halpin, Host of Come Together with the Beatles syndicated radio show
Some people have it all! The venerable James Lee Stanley has appeared on stages around the world and TV screens (Star Trek) as well. That happens when your musicianship, songwriting, humor, and stage presence are impeccable -- and when the entertainment community acknowledges you are the real deal.
