Jack Orbin is the founder and President of Stone City Attractions, Inc., a well-respected, family-owned independent regional concert promoter. Both Stone City Attractions and founder Jack Orbin was inducted into the Metal Hall of Fame in 2020 along with Don Dokken, Stephen Pearcy of Ratt and Joe Satriani on Jan. 15 in Anaheim, Calif. – an event that’s being filmed for Amazon Prime Movies. “I am so honored to be inducted into the Metal Hall of Fame,” Orbin tells Pollstar. “After 48 years of promoting some of the finest artists and concerts, fighting rock censorship and being able to donate a substantial amount to worthy non-profits, I am humbled by this honor. Jack Orbin has promoted and produced nearly every major concert act, from pop and rock-n-roll to country and jazz in venues of all sizes in the Southwest for the past 38 years. Orbin and his company have long specialized in promoting hard rock and heavy metal icons, including AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Anthrax, Slayer, Judas Priest, and many others along with more mainstream artists including The Rolling Stones, U2, Eric Clapton and even the Sex Pistols. If those bona fides weren’t enough, it was Orbin who famously posted bail for Ozzy Osbourne after the Prince of Darkness was arrested in 1982 for allegedly urinating on the Alamo, and almost single-handedly earned San Antonio the designation of “Heavy Metal Capital of the World” during the hard-rockin' ‘80s. Stone City Attractions was opened by Orbin in 1972 and has remained fiercely independent in the 47 years since, with the philosophy “The Music and the Fans Come First,” according to Orbin. Jack prides himself in the extent of his community involvement and was named one of San Antonio’s “Most Influential Top 100 Leaders” in Arts & Entertainment. Additionally, Jack is an active member of the San Antonio Alamodome Advisory Sub-Committee and has been awarded their prestigious Humanitarian Award multiple times.

I absolutely LOVE the MEZE headphones. Having been an avid user of headphones for decades, it is paramount to me that the sound is clean, genuine, and, above all, true to what the musicians were producing, and MEZE more than fills the bill! I truly have never heard a more full and concise sound from headphones...THANK YOU, MEZE!
