Many of you know that our John Stanford is a very talented musician.  When he isn’t here organizing the production schedule, making plates, or sometimes running a press, he is out making music.  For most of the past 14 years that John has been a part of our team, he has also played in a band on the weekends.  His current band is the best one to date – Lock, Stock and Barrel.  The band is described as ‘blues-inspired, Texas country and Southern rock’.

On September 6th, the group had a chance to work with one of the true legends of the music business, Willie Nelson.

Here is a great photo of John with Willie after the show, flanked by his wife and number one fan, Catherine, who is also a key part of the Rose City Label team.  Catherine has worked in production in the past, but is now an important part of our Customer Service group in the office.





John said Willie was very complementary about his band’s performance and was willing to take the time to chat with a fan backstage.  This was quite a thrill for Stanford, and a memory he will carry with him for the rest of his musical career.
