STELLAR are a dynamically hot and experienced 5 piece
coverband, specialising in fresh Top 40 tunes as well as
stylish rock classics from the past 30 years.
Fronted by Melbourne’s killer rock chick Katie Weston,
Stellar will leave you wanting to come back again and again!

Who the hell were that band? Where did they come from? What’s they’re deal?
That Stellar…they’re so hot right now! For the love of God tell me!
Please, please, children…take a number; sit down before you fall down
and read on…

In the beginning… (about 4 years ago) God created heaven, earth and the need
for live entertainment at pubs and clubs in the form of a group of musicians
pulling off other people’s songs to a loving crowd. At the time, guitarist Brad,
bassist JC, drummer Benny were feeling this need and decided to go with it.
BRILLIANT! “But wait!” cried the boys, “Alas, we need an edge that other
bunches of boys who play other people’s music may lack…but what?”
Enter killer vocalist Katie. Yes. A chic. “Do it!” God said.
STELLAR professionally hit the Melbourne cover-band circuit in March 2005 and
have since made a name for themselves as the hottest, freshest new coverband
act to come out of the northern suburbs.
The appeal was simple… young, hot, energetic rock. Bring it on.

By early 2006, the STELLAR kids were playing at major venues like Ballarat’s
21Arms Nightclub and The Australian Open as well as holding long standing
residencies at Father Flannigans, Collingwood & Beaumaris Pavilion Hotel.

It was April 2006. Brett Gaskett was a freak. He could also play the guitar kind of
well, working as a session muso for many top recording artists. “Climb on board
Gaskett!” the Stellar kids gleefully exclaimed. And on they went on their merry
way, playing up to four nights a week anywhere from Pugg Mahone’s in Carlton
to the snow covered hills of Bright to the seaside gayety of Portland to their leafy-
green home land at the Eltham Hotel.

STELLAR soon began there long standing residency at Geelong’s acclaimed
night-pub The Bended Elbow on Saturday nights and are still there to this day.
And God said, “Those Geelong kids – they rock!”
In mid 2007, God told drummer Benny it was time to go and before you could
say, “Lets have an adventure!” along came assassin drummer Richie Neville to
step-up once again the STELLAR sound. God said “Katie, you shall now be a
destroyer on keyboard-synths!” and this was also done.
The final STELLAR line up was complete – a huge sounding 5 piece including
big synths and the crowds were loving it.

Since then, STELLAR have played long residencies at The Swan Hotel in
Richmond, 1422 Bar & Pool in Narre Warren, Flanagans @ QBH in Melbourne
while still rockin’ their huge fan bases at Father Flanagans in Collingwood and of
course their Saturday night home for the past 3 years at the Bended Elbow in

Spreading the good word of Pink, Foo Fighters, Michael Jackson, Veronicas, Bon
Jovi, Fall Out Boy, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The
Killers and many more to the pub and club going children of the world. This was
gospel according to STELLAR. And God was pleased.
