Conceived sometime around 1998, this well seasoned bunch took off playing the local clubs, covering all the radio hits from the 1970's to present day rock, slipping in two to three of their own songs for a test ride now and then. All the while, back at the practice spot (the Track Shack); they were recording their first CD project, a 5-song demo with the band name of "Still Standin'" at that time. And, with the encouragement of a local record review magazine, the boys went into the studio and re-recorded the demo songs, plus another 5 for their new CD called ~Sidereal Day - Once Around~.
"I'm immediately struck with this bands pop/rock potential. There is an unavoidable attraction to the simple, upbeat, poppy feel the band seems to so easily create. I'm gonna come right out and say that I consider Still Standin' to be one heck of a sleeper. With the proper professional direction, I wouldn't be surprised to see them come from out of nowhere and surprise us all with great things." -S.L., Face Magazine. 2002
After the CD review, the bands song "Taste of Freedom" was included on a 20 song CD compilation entitled "Eclectic Medley-Vol.1", and distributed during a Boston, MA held music conference.
"Don't let the jam-band feel of Still Standin' fool you into sticking these guys in that pigeon hole. Sounding a bit Doobie Brothers-influenced but with a pop twist "Taste of Freedom" is a driving classic rocker with a tasty guitar solo thrown in for good measure. Clever changes give the band an excellent vehicle upon which to show off some strong vocals. The boys are having fun and you feel it. This is a band I'll make a point to see live! -Murdoch, Face Magazine. 2002
This CD is a labor of their love for expressing music and thought through amplified instruments. Surviving a member change, the tragic death of one band mate, and now with a new name, Sidereal Day is one straight ahead rock band about to test their musical potential. They are presently working on CD #2, which is due out in mid 2004.
