Please note that several of these files contain a substantial amount of information and may load slowly.
Locating and uncovering this information has been a slow and arduous process. Few, if any of us, kept journals,
saved itineraries and reviews, or took photographs. It just didn't occur to us at the time. Truth be known we never
considered that the exhilarating musical journey we were privileged to take with Stan would ever end and that our
memories should have been documented for posterity sake. The fact that the Band would one day disband, never
to be heard again hardly entered our minds. Hopefully, this commemorative web site celebrates in some small way
Stan and all the marvelously talented musicians who made the Kenton Orchestra 'The Kenton Orchestra.'
