STARS play Canberra 1 November 2018 in support of new LP ‘Boundary Rider’.

logoAdelaide’s Stars return to the nation’s capital after many years this Thursday the 1st November at The Harmonie German Club in support of their highly rated new album, ‘Boundary Rider’.

Stars got together in Adelaide around ’74 ’75 , we were all from around the same neighbourhood and basically fell together through a love of similar music taste, ie. Free, Deep Purple etc

After a short while supporting bands from interstate, Dingoes, LRB etc and starting to write their own songs , Beeb Birtles of LRB recommended Stars to Michael Gudinski of Mushroom Records who promptly signed them instigating a move to Melbourne.

Stars friend Andy Durant joined the band with a collection of his own songs which formulated their sound from Rock Boogie to more Country Rock and the first album was released going gold.

After the release of Stars second album “Land Of Fortune” a live album “1157” and 3 years of constant touring a decision was made to end Stars and sadly shortly after Andy died from a melanoma .

In 1980 the star studded “Andrew Durant Memorial Concert” was staged at the Palais Theatre in St Kilda, featuring the members of Stars, Renee Geyer, Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss, Don Walker, Richard Clapton and many more of the cream of Australian artists who are still recording and playing to this day, a live recording of the show was released to much acclaim and promptly went gold.

After over 35 years Stars are back with the original line up featuring Mick Pealing on vocals and guitar, Mal Eastick on guitar, Roger McLachlan on bass and Glyn Dowding on drums and featuring Nick Charles on guitar.

The music of Stars is mainly written by Andy Durant and Mal Eastick, it’s rock/country with a hard edge and a touch of soul.

Audiences can expect the music from our 2 studio albums “Paradise” and Land Of Fortune”, “The Andrew Durant Memorial Concert” and the new album “Boundary Rider “
