The Family Stone, born out of Sly and the Family Stone, brings the raw, unfiltered original sound that became part of the essential building blocks of many great modern artists’ toolkits, including Prince, Michael Jackson, John Legend, Missy Elliott, Aretha Franklin, and many more. As a worldwide phenomenon, the group is best known for its legendary anthems like “Family Affair,” “Everyday People,” “Dance to the Music,” among others, and their album, “STAND” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and declared a National Treasure in The United States Library of Congress. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, R & B Pioneer Award winner, and original founding member of Sly & The Family Stone, Jerry Martini, along with Phunne Stone (the multi-talented daughter of Sly Stone and the late, great Cynthia Robinson), Swang Stewart, Jimi McKinney, Frank Klepacki, Nate Wingfield, and Blaise Sison bring the music of the first interracial, main-stream major band in Rock & Roll history to the dynamic sound of The Family Stone band
