STAN "THE MAN" HEFFNER
Born in Ford City, Pennsylvania, Stan is a self-taught musician. The dream of wanting to become a Hammond B3 organ player began at age 8 after hearing "Midnight Special" and "The Sermon" by Jimmy Smith.
Being influenced by the sounds of Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff, Stan started playing the B3 at age 16. Helping to form The Versatiles, a high school band of nine musicians including 3 siblings; one of which is one of Florida's noted prominent Female Vocalists, Katt Hefner, Stan's music career began. His high energy playing was developed by watching live performances of Jimmy McGriff at the Crawford Grille and The Hollywood Club in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
It was during the 70's and 80's Stan experimented with playing other keyboards and began writing dynamic songs including Christian contemporary. With an array of songs listed in the Library of Congress, "Stan the Man" is a musician to be recognized. Stan has co-produced two albums; Over & Under Blues and Christmas Time with Heffner & Hefner and Friends.
Accomplished jazz siren and International Modeling & Talent Association 5-time award recipient, Katt Hefner, possesses a compelling voice that ranks in the very top echelon of respected female jazz singers.
On stage, Katt is truly an engaging performer who just loves to entertain. With a voice rich in strength and clarity, her melodic tones capture and mesmerize her audience nationally and internationally. Her lyrics flow in a rare combination of beauty, voice, and poise.
