The Peter Tork Memorial MONKEES Convention
"We will make the world shine"

James Lee Stanley learned to play the ukulele at an early age, and at sixteen he got his first recording contract. In 1970 James did his first Los Angeles recording session through his friend Mama Cass Elliott of The Mamas & The Papas.

James Lee Stanley's first self-titled album was released January 23, 1973 and one month later he had his first booking as a recording artist, opening for guitar legend Les Paul in Santa Monica, CA.

After a series of album releases, Stanley made the decision to start his own label Beechwood Records. Stanley said, "I wanted to make a recording of music and comedy and all the labels said: 'Choose one or the other.' So I chose to start my own label and do just what I do." Stanley currently records for Beachwood, and tours regularly, performing up to three hundred dates each year. He has performed with such diverse acts as Steven Wright, Raitt, Nicolette Larson, Bill Cosby and Robin Williams.

Stanley collaborated with Peter Tork as “Two Man Band,” and they released three albums. His collaboration with Peter, “Angels We Have Heard on High,” appears on The Monkees’ holiday album, “Christmas Party.”

James very much wanted to be part of the Peter Tork Memorial Convention for Monkees Fans but had some health issues to overcome. We are honored and blessed that James Lee Stanley is with us for the convention.

He will be talking on stage, performing and will sign autographs as part of a meet & greet included in all admissions.

Official Charity of the Event is the one Peter designated:
IMA - The Institute for The Musical Arts in Massachussetts.
