Biography

We are five guys in a band. We play music in the attic of our house. We hang our mics from the ceiling. We play from our hearts and sing from our souls. We are Weggalo Star.

It's great being in a band, but it's even better when everyone in the band is one of your best friends. The bonds of Weggalo Star were forged back in 2007, when all members were residents of Cornell University's Just About Music program house. The group played music together sporadically, gradually coming into themselves as musicians; all members were always writing or recording original compositions, and experimenting with different musical genres. By Sophomore year, the interests of all five seemed to align perfectly. The group of friends shared a house with some others off campus, and the attic was quickly transformed into a cherished practice space. The final line-up included Jordan Bernstein on lead guitar; Dave Vieira on vocals, guitar, and keyboards; Brian Han on vocals, guitar, keyboard and bass; Ricardo Villareal on drums; and Ariyan Basu on vocals, guitar, keyboard and bass. All members equally contribute to the writing of the songs, a process that keeps everyone focused and passionate. At its core, Weggalo Star plays rock music, meandering into the realm of electronic and experimental pop music. Whatever you call it, if you can't feel the energy exploding off the stage at a Weggalo Star show, you might not have a pulse.
