Stan Szelest

Stan Szelest was a piano player that lived in Buffalo for most of his career.  He had his own band – Stan and the Ravens  –  and also was the original piano player in The Band.  In the late 80s, Stan and the Ravens were at the peak of their powers and any night that I was not playing with a band and they were playing, I would be there.  Here is a clip from 1984 with the Hawks and 2 vintage clips from the late 80’s era shot in Toronto, Ontario Canada.
