Bio

Stanley Wilfred Engelbrecht was born and raised in Paternoster (a small fisherman's village on the west-coast of South-Africa. He was born into a musical family. He started playing guitar at the tender age of eight years old. He learned his first chords from his father.

Stanley performed and shared stages with artists and bands such as Temptations, Randy Crawford, Angie Stone, Joe Sample, the late Huge Masekela, Stimela, Lira,Mango Groove and many more.

FORMAL MUSIC EDUCATION:
Stanley never formally studied music because his parents couldn't afford to send him to go study. He plays only by ear. He learned a lot from listening and copying from some of his greatest musical influences such as Jonathan Butler, Joe Pass and George Benson.

GENRE:
He later created his own style of playing which is basically a mixture of Ghoema music, Afro jazz and smooth jazz. He can create wonderful melodies, that's very pleasant to the ear. He always catches his audience with his vibrant performances and great interaction.Stanley"Stan.E"Engelbrecht is definitely a force to be reckoned with. He's amazing Afro and Smooth jazz application definitely puts him at ease between artists like Norman brown and Doc Powell.
