Get ready. An Anaheim Hills car den just birthed The Last Garage Band – and OC group that's gripping the streets on the fast-track to superstardom. Much like their OC contemporaries, No Doubt with Gwen Stefani, The Last Garage Band plays club-hoppin' tracks featuring Elly's sultry vocals. You'll also get a taste of Cold Play-style arrangements as this young band mixes it up a bit.

The Last Garage Band is fronted by Elly Stefanko, 21, a beautiful and multi-talented singer/songwriter originally from Reno, Nevada. Early highlights of her career include appearances on the long-running Christian TV Broadcast Show, Hour of Power, at the Crystal Cathedral hosted by Dr. Robert Schuler. Elly was featured on TV as a soloist several times from 1999 – 2003, performing songs such as “Hero” by Mariah Carey and a duet with famed Phantom of the Opera star Michael Crawford.    

The Last Garage Band is the brainchild of the enigmatic Elly as well as renowned musical director Bruce Sterling. With Sterling, Elly auditioned and hand-picked each member. Lead rhythm guitarist Greg Schutter, 28, is an Anaheim native. His eclectic musical roots range from country to rock to punk with lots of '80s influences. An equally-gifted songwriter, Greg's catchy Pop and Adult Contemporary verses and hooks solidly compliment Elly's dynamic vocals. Bassist Mike Torres, 25, grew up in Southern Cal, and is a standout musician who holds down the groove if not almost effortlessly. Mike, who also plays piano and writes music, has chocked up appearances at several award shows and tours. Drummer RJ Kelly, 22, was referred by Sterling. The former Kansas City,
Mo., drummer hails from a heavy gospel-rooted background, where he started drumming at 3! He's now well-versed in a plethora of percussion instruments and musical arrangements.

Look for The Last Garage Band to bring back some '70s rock-era sounds -then hit you with club-hoppin' tracks! The Beatles hit cover, “Come Together,” is a hypnotic knockout! A flawless soft beginning progresses into a fantastic “Pink Floyd-like” guitar riff. The smash dance tune, “Disco Ball,” written by the band's Greg Schutter is a major club joint. RJ rips the drums, while the head bobbin'
hook and fun lyrics keep the track sizzling. “Simplicity,” also written by Greg, jumps from a love ballad groove into a "Top Gun-like" lead guitar, where it floats along an alternative punk groove. “Waiting,” written by Elly is a thought-provoking track that begins in fifteen-eight beat. This stirring, mid-tempo hit also features incredible violin strings and a moving piano arrangement.
