"Drum Wars with Carmine and Vinny Appice"

Starsik was the first band to take to the stage with it's odd arrangement. You see there was not a lot of room for the band given that the two drum kits of the Appices sat down on the lower level off of the drum riser and took up quite a bit of real estate. With Starsik's drum kit crushed into the right corner of the stage they blasted through their opening song called Silence. These kids were obviously from Barrie, Ontario when they announced that they had been the winners of Rock 95's (the Barrie radio station) Rock Search competition. They were quite entertaining with funky grooves and a good stage presence. They played musical instruments, well obviously! But I don't mean that, more like musical chairs as the drummer shared many of the vocals with the rhythm guitarist, but for a couple of songs the lead guitarist and bassist switched instruments. That wasn't the end of "musical instruments" as the drummer came out from behind the kit and took up rhythm guitar while the guitarist bashed the skins. Really fun and cool to see such talents. Their set list included songs such as Special In My Heart, Fourteen Minutes, The Devil and Red, Black and Blue. The latter was a great song and apparently has been seeing airplay on Rock 95 for about a year. Watch for their upcoming CD due out June 15th, sure to be loaded with tons of crunchy guitar and pounding rhythms. - Decibel Geek


STARSIK (2013)



Starsik is a high energy rock band with great song writing and an even better stage show! These four guys write together, play together and practically live together and that's what give them such a tight and true sound. With a mix of vocals between the two guitar players and the drummer, the sound is full and the style is eclectic but still true to the rock roots of everyone in the band. This band out of Toronto is also known to switch instruments during the show. Allowing the audience to experience the rhyme styles and showmanship of drummer Stefan Faykos. Meanwhile Dave Ahara continues his smooth rock vocals from behind the drums and this is part of what creats their unique sound another contributor is the driving bass lines of Geoff Holstead deeply intertwined with the drums and authentic tones and style of lead guitar player Jeff Torrens. This band is turning out great new songs all the time and seem to be making all the right moves, playing festivals all over Ontario this year and gaining the attention of local radio, promoters, other bands and new fans everywere they go!
