Born in Ford City, Pennsylvania, STAN “The Man” HEFFNER 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.
These talented performers gathered for a group shot before a recent engagement in Florida.
Heffner & Hefner are an amazing team!
