Standing at the corner of Texas and Common Streets, Stan’s Records spent the 1950s through 1980’s as a hub for musical culture in Shreveport/Bossier cities, but not everyone knows that “Uncle Stan” AKA Stan “The Record Man” Lewis represents one of the most significant figures in the history of Shreveport, Louisiana. Lewis turned a jukebox route and small record shop into a music empire by distributing and selling millions of records, issuing over one thousand releases on his own labels (Jewel, Paula & Ronn) and helped write songs that gained tremendous success. 

“Uncle Stan” will be turning 88 years “young” this year, and the Shreveport Regional Arts Council is inspired to produce an annual event that Tributes and Reminisces about the career and impact of STAN LEWIS - a local living legend and national icon in the music industry. The event “brings back” musicians who got their start at the hands of Stan, either because he co-wrote songs, recorded and published them, distributed them, and / or sold the records. With the help of the Lewis family, local music historian and DJ, Chris Brown, and Garland Jones, SRAC presents the second Stan – The Record Man – Tribute Fest.

The first incarnation of the festival happened in March of 2014 as part of the UNSCENE! series and featured a DJ panel, arts market, hands-on activities, live music performed by groups Stan produced and more! Saturday, September 26 from 10:00am – 10:00pm the festival returns with everything you loved last year and more!
