Meridian is the best cover band out there. When you're sick and tired of regular bands that play a few tired songs and escape out the back, Meridian is the band to restore your faith in live music.

Meridian formed in 1999 and have been thrilling the Sunshine Coast ever since. There repertoire includes world-wide hits from Pearl Jam, Nirvana, AC/DC, Greenday, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Guns n Roses, Grinspoon, Metallica and John Butler Trio. This would indicate their music leans towards the heavier end of the rock scale until you throw in the last one and then you realise this band is pretty diverse.

This collection of talented musicians electrified crowds separately for more than five years before joining together to become the musical force they are today.

Jason "Stoney" Stone leads the charge with his dominant vocals and commanding stage presence.  Jason may have started his vocal career later than most at the age 23 but he rocketed to success after busking for only weeks, he landed his first paid gig and played in venues in Bundaberg for a year before moving to the Sunshine Coast and joining Eternal Fury which was later to become Meridian.

Mal Zego's incredible lead guitar talent coupled with amazing shredding solos add depth to the line-up. Mal originally hails from Sydney where he cut his teeth playing support for bands like Midnight Oil, The Radiators and The Black Sorrows.  Upon moving to Queensland, he played in The Australian Guns n' Roses Show and The Australian Tribute Spectacular. 

On bass and vocals, Marty Ellis provides strength and power to this rock outfit and together with Jason Stone has been instrumental in transforming Meridian from garage band to the popular professional act it is today.

Dan Rickard brings some heavy beats to the group with over 15 years of drumming experience. Starting out in a Rockabilly band, Dan has played alongside bands such as The Living End and The Cadillacs.  He has a wide variety of styles having played in a number of bands and supporting various artists and groups before joining Meridian.
