LOVE LIKE POISON



Antares

L-R:  Brian Katchnoski (lead/rhythm guitar), Dave Pastuck (drums/lead vocals),
Scott McBride (lead vocals, lead/rhythm guitar), Steve Farrell (bass guitar/harmonies)



The core of the band began with Steve Farrell and Dave Pastuck playing as friends in the basement in the west end of Winnipeg when they were 14 years old.  Scott McBride joined them 3 years later at the age of 19.  The core of Antares was always Steve, Dave, and Scott.  The fourth member, a second lead and rhythm guitarist was always desired and needed to fill the sound to allow for a wider selection of covers.  When the band played live, it was a mix of 50% hard rock covers and 50% hard rock original compositions.
     Other members of Antares included, in order are:
  • Chris Pilz - Lead and Rhythm Guitar
  • Lorrie Mulvaney - Lead vocals
