How good are the Standells in concerts today?


Rather than tooting our own horn, we thought we would relay what the critics have been saying for the last five years. Believe it or not, these are the first rave reviews the Standells have EVER received. Since 2009, the group has been composed of Larry Tamblyn (co-founder, lead singer, keyboards), John Fleck (original member, bassist), Mark Adrian (co-lead singer & guitarist), and Greg Burnham (drums). We also are appreciative of those who have complemented our new songs, some of which we always include in performances today. We’d love to hear from fans that have been to our recent concerts. We dedicate ourselves to sounding like we did in the 60’s, and then some!



The Standells are proud to announce the release of their new album, scheduled for release soon. We’ll update you with the exact date! Titled “The 60s: The Standells”, it was recorded LIVE at Mayne Stage in Chicago during their USA tour in May, 2014. This will be the 2nd NEWLY RECORDED Standells album release in TWO YEARS. It consists of their classic hits, including “Dirty Water”, “Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White” and “Rari”, plus four new songs. This really captures the rawness and power of the Standells today in concert.

The CD will be priced at between $5.00 - 6.00, and will be sold in Walmart, Best Buy, FYE, Amazon, independent record stores, plus special promotions at non-traditional retail grocery and drug chains, such as: Walgreens, CVS, Albertson’s, Office Depot, Rite Aid, etc., USA only. It will NOT be available for download. You heard it, NO Spotify, NO iTunes, NO Pandora, NO Rhapsody. The album must be purchased the old-fashioned way – at a retailer!

The CD is part of Sony’s Extended Version Series, which is Sony Music’s premiere Rock/Pop series featuring LIVE content. It was started in 2000, and collectively the titles have sold millions of copies. The Extended Version series has grown to feature almost 100 bands/artists, including the Zombies, Monkees, Foreigner, Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Jethro Tull, Anthrax, Queensryche, Megadeth, Peter Frampton, Everclear, Barenaked Ladies and more!
