On one hand, can I count this country’s most beguiling/ imaginative/ other-worldly event producers… Stanlee Gatti is one of them, creating some of the most ravishing evenings of recent American history + memory.
Like all brilliant creatives, Stanlee has a wild method to his madness that conjures and electrifies night after night– dreaming up parties that take you to his interpretation of: Andy Warhol’s factory; magnificent circus big tops bathed + draped in vibrant stripes on silk; debaucherous bacchanalia in medieval hill top village in Napa Valley… just to name a few.
Stanlee has shamelessly delighted the Bay Area for 2 decades with his love of drama + magical details; which unfold throughout the night, like acts of a play. It is a treat of a lifetime to spend an evening partaking on his stage.
