"It is simple, really. With James Lee you get great songs, great guitar playing, great voice and a gifted comedian as well. You are in for a very entertaining evening." – Village Voice

James Lee Stanley will be no stranger to Tehachapi when he performs at Fiddlers Crossing, Saturday, September 24, at 7 p.m. He has given concerts in Fiddlers Crossing, Mama Hillybean's and the BeeKay Theatre over the last decade. He has become a favorite in Tehachapi because of his remarkable ability as a vocalist, songwriter, composer and guitarist, matched with his hilarious repartee. The audience will be treated to an evening of tenderness, humor and storytelling. He has been hailed as one of the all-time greats on the singersongwriter circuit, and is certainly an extraordinary entertainer.

Along the way, he was in the USAF as a Chinese linguist, and was an actor in some Star Trek: Next Generation episodes. He gives up to 300 concerts per year, and has opened for, or played with a diverse roster of performers ranging from Bonnie Raitt to Robin Williams.

A true Renaissance man, Stanley writes a blog called "Datamusicata: Tips, Hints, Clues and Info for the Artist in us all." The site has recently crossed the 1,100,000 hits mark and can be found at www. And if musician, actor, writer, linguist, humorist, isn't enough, James Lee Stanley is also a fine artist.
