"Jerry Martini played saxophone for Sly and the Family Stone.  Sly Stone’s lineup of musicians was very daring for those racially turbulent times.  White musicians rarely played in black soul groups, yet Sly had not one, but two white guys in his band, Jerry on sax and Greg Errico on drums, two years before The Civil Rights Act of 1968 was passed, two years before Martin Luther King was killed, and five years before the US Supreme Court first addressed racial desegregation of schools through forced busing.

These were times of high racial tension, and Sly was reportedly under pressure from the Black Panthers in the late 60s to sack his white musicians, but he admirably declined to discriminate, and Jerry and Greg remained in the band"

“The Family Stone delivered tight grooves and endless hits that kept the audience on their feet all night. The band is powerful, fun and still funky.”

“The crowd were totally into this evening, singing and dancing like their lives depended on it. It is still utterly inspiring to see a band, any band, inspire such positive feelings and reactions with a crowd, totally dispelling Melbourne’s reputation as ‘the city of folded arms’ as far as live music is concerned"- Neil Evans

“The Family Stone could not of been a better choice for the Iowa State Fair! They had every person in the crowd on their feet dancing until the end. Extremely family oriented, ties in grandparents to little ones.”-Sara Sheldon-Triangle Talent
