The Stereos are a Canadian band, originally formed in Edmonton under the name “Stand By Me”. The band got its big break on canadian television channel Much Music’s reality show “DisBAND” where they were introduced to Universal Music Canada A&R Rep Mark Spicoluk.
While filming their episode of disBAND they were advised by disBAND Guru Greig Nori (from the band, “Treble Charger”) to change their name to avoid copyright issues. They then changed their name from “Stand By Me” to “Turn It Up”. As “Turn it up” they played “Summer Girl”, now a hit single, for disBAND’s judges and the judges declared that the band “has what it takes” to become successful in the music industry.
After disBAND “Turn It Up” returned to edmonton, and a few months later, were contacted by Mark Spicoluk to play a showcase for Gene Simmons of KISS. After that performance, Mark Spicoluk requested the band come play a showcase in Toronto for the possibilty of being signed by Universal Music Canada, a name change was also strongly suggested. It was then that the bands current name, “Stereos” was selected. The Showcase was a success and the band was signed to Universal. disBAND chronicled all these events and presented them as an hour long special.
