    This may be a silly question but who is in Stan's backing band? Are they singers and musos that Sony got together?

    Mike (Stans older bro) is the guitarist, Ashley (BV's) is a Back Up Vocalist on Idol, Russ (older bro) has done backing vocals as well at some of Stan's NZ gigs as well as being the band's percussionist & Tammy (BV's) is Stan's sister-in-law & both Taya and Sidney (stans original BVs and incidentally Sidney is his cousin) auditioned for the roles respectively.. dont know the dude on keyboard though.. Not too sure who put it all together whether it was Sony or Stan himself. Mind you, I knew it was always his intention to have his family involved in his journey as much as possible so with that in mind, perhaps Stan was the driving force behind it?

    Yep and as irony would have it, Sidney made it to the Top 24 of NZ Idol's first season.. Though just quietly, he def deserved to go further in the competition!

    It was Australian Idol 2003 that Sidney made the Semis Group 2...he sung Ribbons in the Sky by Stevie Wonder...he also was fast tracked to audition for the judges 2008 but it was Madam Parker that was selected to continue on...I hope he is still involved with Stan as B/V but he hasn't been called up since the promotional tour just after Idol...Does any one know if Sid backed up at Waringah Mall??? Last footage I saw of him was Blacktown...Hes not a real cousin to Stan...you know how it is all Maori are related...everyones a bro or cuz... :)

    haha. My bad, I did mean Oz Idol not NZ! Blonde moment lol..

    And I didn't think they were real cousins either - Sid is a born and raised Gizzy boy so couldn't immediately make a Tamapahore or Ruatoki connection?? It wasn't until I heard Stans radio interview on Sonshine FM in Perth where he said they were related that I thought they must be distant cousins.. Although, I'm sure most Maori could find connections with each other somewhere along the line! haha

    LOL so true CK....... you are a font of info huh? LOL
    So Ashley was a backup vocalist on Idol? I can't remember seeing her on the show.
    BTW I reckon Sid is way awesome.. shame he hasn't been called up recently. I really like his style. it blends well with Stan's voice

    Oh so agree Linda re Sid - way Awsum! The accoustic version of Black Box is just amazing..as u said, Sids voice blends beautifully with Stans...Hope to see him with Stans band again soon.. singing cool
    And the 3 girls are triffic..hehe! Ashley is very accomplished..good dance moves, looks great! As does Taya..I guess..*shrugs shoulders* ..but loved Tam at the Rotorua concert (well, what I heard on Utube anyway LOLz).. her voice is powerful, lovely... she did a gr8 job plus ...she's Mike's wife - brilliant!! punk1

    bahahaha I understnad exactly what do you mean about having male and female BV. It offers probably more variety in terms of tones, light and shade... I think also Stan needs a strong male voice to cover up and back him up during a concert. I think Syd has a very nice voice, lovely to listen to and he is a fine singer too. It would be great if they could have Ash Syd and Taya all together aye?...

    Awwww Im not on facebook!!! I know I know.. cries LOLz.. BUT I am on Twitter!! Grin I would follow Sidney .. Hmmmmm..I think I'll do a search and see if he has twitter!!

    But thanks for ur reply.. I am sure that as Stan grows as a performer, he will need the BV support and professionalism of Sidney more too. Especially now that Stan is back in Aus .. heaps of gigs lined up over the next few months - and a trip back to NZ... so who knows.. if Sid gets that CALL, we Kiwi's may see Sidney perform with Stan yet!!! Kooooool.. Whoop whoop! woot woot Grin
