Stand combines heartfelt energy and excellent song craftmanship to deliver songs that range from loud and gritty to mellow and dramatic. Their combination of 2 very harmonic vocalists over hookie guitar lines provide a breath of fresh air in a music world full of mundane rock and puffy pop.

Biography

As a first generation Irish-American with a blue collar upbringing, PJ Walsh is instinctively aware of the power of laughter and its ability to transcend generations. Regarded as one of the hardest working comics behind the microphone, he is known for his quick wit, boundless energy and his often insightful observations on the things he cherishes most: the military, family, and being American. A veteran of the U.S. Navy, PJ discovered his talent for comedy while stationed in Bethesda, Maryland where he served as the primary dental care technician for the White House. While there, he flossed the teeth of such high-ranking military and government officials, as former President Bill Clinton, former Vice-President Al Gore and their families. Since 2005, PJ has been a natural fit as the opener on Larry the Cable Guy's hugely successful "Tour of America" and "The Right to Bare Arms" tours. PJ has also made a name for himself opening for other famous blue collar comedians Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Ron White. Currently, he is on tour headlining comedy clubs nationwide. PJ is the host of "Wall2Wall Good Stuff" on Blue Collar Radio channel 103 on Sirius Satellite Radio. He can be seen in Larry the Cable Guy's "Git-R-Done" DVD, Ron White's "They Call Me Tater Salad" DVD and plays a role in the Lionsgate feature film "Delta Farce" starring DJ Qualls, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy. In 2007, PJ had the distinct honor of performing with Larry at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
During his career, PJ has also performed at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, he took first place in the 2002 Rocky Mountain Laugh-Off and was a finalist in the 2002 Seattle International Comedy Competition. In January 2003, he hit national television with his appearance on CBS' "Star Search" and went on to receive much acclaim at the 2003 HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO.
