Band History

Travel back to the musical memories of driving rock-and-roll and the melodies of yesterday's classic hits …

ONE NIGHT STAND is Kansas City's premier classic rock band.  With distinctive vocals & instrumentation, the band emulates music from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, and from today.  Originally the band got its name when it formed 20 years ago to perform for one night and then planned to disband, but the requests kept coming and the band kept playing for private parties and corporate events.  ONE NIGHT STAND has been playing one night at a time ever since.

ONE NIGHT STAND — the band…the music…the memories…

In the fall of 1997 Mike Dunne and other Hallmark Executives decided to form a band and to fill one of the largest dance halls in the Kansas City area for a single night party – thus One Night Stand. The audience wanted to dance to the classic rock they grew up with years ago.  The band that evening included Mike Dunne (lead guitar and vocals), Tim Plumb (vocals and band manager), Gery Illgner (keyboards and vocals), Jeff Zande (drums), Bobby Bryant (bass), and Mark Amren (guitar and vocals).  They were joined on stage by numerous guest musicians and singers, including The Pointless Sisters, more than one Elvis, and Sonnie & Cher.  Playing the classics, Play that Funky Music, Mustang Sally, Twist and Shout, Johnny B Goode, Listen to the Music, etc, ... ONE NIGHT STAND was overwhelmed with requests and kept on playing late into the night, ... and the band is still performing 20 years later.

One Night Stand has had several new players over the years; the two constants have been Mike on guitar and Gery Illgner on keyboards. This group has become notable not only as a strong instrumental band, but also an excellent vocal band.

Whether playing for private parties, New Year's Eve Celebrations, Halloween Parties, Husker Pep Rallies in Westport before the game at Arrowhead, corporate events ... ONE NIGHT STAND gigs take you back to the driving rock-and-roll and the melodies of yesterday's classic hits …
