Chicago music entrepreneur and videographer who came of age on the deep South Side during the days of roller discos and juice bars. Stanton’s father worked for Mayor Daly’s security detail and his mother was a butcher. He grew up around McCormack Place working for Andy Frank’s security business before his father retired from his work with Daly and took over the contract there. This work gave Stanton a front-row seat for some of the biggest house music promotions, both successes and failures, that took place at the venue.
