BALTIMORE (WJZ)–Two days, more than two dozen bands all coming together for charity and it’s all happening this weekend in Baltimore!

WJZ’s Ron Matz has more.

Rob Fahey and the original Ravyns will reunite on Saturday, just one of the bands performing at Stanstock 2015.

“It’s a wonderful event, it’s our third time, we’ve been here every year and I’m looking forward to it again,” said Rob Fahey.

Local musician Stan Gibson will be there, the man behind this ultimate musical family reunion.

“Stanstock started from the Facebook page, “Baltimore Bands From the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.” It was a page that was started by a gentleman by the name of Stan Gibson,” Robin Bloomfield, a spokesperson for the event.

The music at McAvoy’s raises money for the Catch A Lift Foundation for Veterans and the Nicole Van Horn Trust Fund.

Nancy Van Horn’s daughter died of cancer 18 years ago.

“What we do is raise money for the children who are suffering at Johns Hopkins. We’ve branched out and help families all over the United States,” said Nancy Van Horn. “The music industry is very close knit and I’m very thankful to be associated with Stanstock and all the acts that perform.”

Officials say there will be two stages at Stanstock, one inside and one outside, featuring 28 bands!

On Friday night, gates open at 5 p.m. On Saturday, the gates open at 11 a.m.
