The people of Cleveland do not describe Michael Stanley just as a rock star, media personality, or musician– he is a living legend. His career has spanned 50 years including over 30 record releases and hundreds of concerts!

In 1974 he formed the Michael Stanley Band with singer-songwriter and guitarist Jonah Koslen, former Glass Harp bassist Daniel Pecchio and drummer Tommy Dobeck. From the mid 1970s to the mid 1980s, the Michael Stanley Band enjoyed a strong and fiercely loyal following, touring with superstar bands of that period (including Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, Foreigner and the Doobie Brothers). They enjoyed several Top 20 and Top 30 hits, among them “He Can’t Love You” and “My Town.” Stanley embarked on a successful TV and Radio career, eventually landing a gig as the popular afternoon drive time DJ at Cleveland’s WNCX.

He resumed his musical pursuits in the 2000s, and since then has maintained an amazing schedule, juggling live performances, brilliant solo records and his radio job. All of this has happened while the veteran musician has dealt with several major health challenges.

In August of 1982, The Michael Stanley Band, set an attendance record of four sold out performances at Blossom Music Center, 74,404, that still stands today.

This year, the Cleveland Arts Prize honored Michael Stanley with a special Lifetime Achievement Award celebrating his incredible 50-year career in music, local media and philanthropy.
