Stanley Baird

8:00pm ~ 10:00pm

While having enjoyed playing with other bands throughout the years, Stanley Baird had the drive to create his own band and play his own music. In 1991, The Stanley Baird Group was formed and has since released 7 albums. Stanley Baird has been playing the saxophone since an early teenager and has shared the stage with legends including Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Kim Waters, Regina Belle, Alex Bugnon, Brian McKnight, The O'Jays, George Howard, Otis Redding, Gladys Knight, Kirk Whalum, Patti LaBelle, Najee, Richard Elliott, and Donald Byrd. 


Baird's music is described as smooth jazz with an R&B and Latin infusion. With a Master's degree in Music Education, Baird served as a band instructor in the North Carolina public school system for 35 years, as well as got his start teaching in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. It was during his time in St. Croix that Baird was first exposed to West Indian and Latin music. Because Baird believes the future of jazz music lies in the hands of rising instrumentalists and vocalists, he strongly advocates the exposure of music to underprivileged youth.
