Welcome to DCStarmusic.com the official webpage for all things DC Star!

The powerhouse rockers DC Star formed in the Washington DC suburbs. They performed throughout the Mid-Atlantic region for years before recording their first vinyl record “Blue Sparks” in 1977 . And by the time their last record album "Rockin' in the Classroom" was released by Mirage/Atlantic in 1985, DC Star had conquered the whole northeast from the Carolinas to Maine. 

With the sad passing of vocalist Ken Taylor in 2011 it would have been easy to let memories fade into history. But DC Star band leader and writer David Simmons preserves their legacy with the encouragement of fans and support of Susan Singer of Reach Digital Consulting who co-designed and built our websites. 

The About section,  Video section and Photo Gallery are refreshed and updated for 2022!

We hope you enjoy your trip down Rock-and-Roll Memory Lane and welcome you to send questions or contact band members through the links below. Rock on!
