Stan Boreson - History

Drums Stan is a native of Everett, Washington and a University of Washington graduate. While attending the University of Washington, he was invited to participate in his first local television show called "Campus Capers", featuring university students. His success on "Capers" led him to his second television show with local musician Art Barduhn. They called their show "Two B's at the Keys." Recognizing his talents as well as his humor, the stations program director created a daily afternoon children's program for him called "King's Klubhouse." The success of the show bestowed on him many awards including the national "Children's Entertainer Award", awarded annually by the Dell Publishing Company.

On a dare, he began doing Scandinavian dialect songs by transforming popular American songs into humorous Norwegian and Swedish renditions. Over the years, his songs proved so successful that he has made numerous recordings and currently has 16 CD's, two videos and three DVD's on the market. His latest album is entitled, "Just Don't Look Good Naked Anymore". However, audiences remember him most for his Christmas songs which are now featured on two CD's, "Stan Boreson Fractures Christmas" and "Yust Go Nuts At Christmas".
