Get to know Stoney Curtis
I started playing guitar at 12 years old knowing that was what I wanted to do with my life. At 19, I moved from my hometown of Chicago to Los Angeles. I started STONEY CURTIS BAND in 1998 because I’ve always loved the magical energy of a power trio. I am the guitarist and lead singer. I self released my first record, a double live album called “Alive & Unleashed”. I caught the ear of legendary producer Mike Varney. He came to see me play in a blues club in Las Vegas and eventually signed me to Shrapnel Records. My music has taken me through many countries around the world and I’ve been picked up by foreign labels along the way, P-Vine in Japan and Provogue in the European and UK markets. I was also privileged enough to be asked to perform on the world renowned “RockPalast”. To this day I’ve released three records, “Acid Blues Experience”, “Raw and Real”, and “Cosmic Conn3ction”. I have a soon to be released “Stoney Curtis Live” CD & DVD pack. Over the last year and a half I’ve had the honor of not only playing in, but hosting benefits for the Imagine Charity. It is a non-profit organization that raises funds for music education in public schools. Aside from STONEY CURTIS BAND, I’m also the lead guitarist of ZITO 77, which features lead singer Danny “The Count” Koker from “Pawn Stars” and “Counting Cars” on the History Channel, which tours nationally. I pride myself on my reputation in the community, not only as a musician but as an avid supporter of the local music scene and its musicians. I’ve written and arranged all of my own music.
