The Velcro Stars are an indie pop band based in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. They began with Columbia natives Shane Spresser and Keith Pratt playing guitar and writing songs together after high school. They were joined in 2001 by Rebekah Kidd. Danial Norman was a high school acquaintance and joined them as their bassist in 2001 as well. After going through several drummers, Andy Spore filled the position, playing with them in 2005.
The band was active throughout 2006 playing shows and recording the album "Hiroshima's Revenge" and shooting a music video to support the upcoming release. "Hiroshima's Revenge" was joint-released by Grand Palace Records (Murfreesboro, TN) and Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records (Athens, GA) in 2007.
2007 brought changes to the lineup, with the September 27, 2007 show at the Boro Bar and Grill being the last date played with both Andy and Danial. Andy's commitments with How I Became The Bomb and Danial's commitments to family prompted the lineup changes.
Velcro Stars played the 2007 CMJ Festival in the Happy Happy Birthday To Me showcase at the Tank. The lineup featured new bass player Jonathan Brock and temporary fill-in on drums, Tyler Coppage.
