RIP: Stan Wade

We’re sad to hear that Stan Wade, singer and occasional bassist with The Trammps, passed away in January 2021 from complications following Covid. The Trammps were the Philly band that had a runaway hit with the single “Disco Inferno”, which featured prominently in the hit musical “Saturday Night Fever” in 1977. The track was released twice and hit the n° 11 spot in the Billboard charts the second time.

But The Trammps – and Stan – go back to the sixties and the doo-wap band such as The Volcanoes and Zing. We started working with Stan in the eighties, when he was living in Antwerp, Belgium. We recorded material for him and he also contributed his voice and wisdom to tracks for George Williams and others.

So long, Stan. And thanks for everything.
