Where did it all start, and how was the name 'Squeaker' founded? In 1995, Steve Staben played his first gig as a fill-in for a band, which saw him learn and perform the set without fault within the time frame of two days. From this performance, the nickname 'Squeaky' evolved for his 'squeaky clean drumming'. With a passion for unique music inspired by a live TV performance by Living Colour and a new found reputation, it was only seven years later that Squeaker formed with long time friends and original members, Georgii Staben and Rodge Smith.

2007 was a big year for the band as they released the single 'Jesus Ain't My Boyfriend', and won various awards and competitions including 'Best Production' in the Open Master category for their song 'Reason' in SCALA's FOOM Awards and first prize in the Cavern Club & Cecere's Battle Of The Bands Grand Final to name a few.

Squeaker's EP Launch of 'Fly Baby Fly' was a sell out performance at The Promethean, Adelaide back in April. Unfortunately for the band, their success was counteracted with the untimely task of hiring a new bass player. After advertising the position and two rounds of auditions, Oswaldo Grillet (O.G.) was announced as Squeaker's new bass player.

Squeaker are well known for their high energetic performances and their signature style of alternative pop; a combination of a live rock band and synthesized textures.

Squeaker's upcoming Victorian tour is not to be missed by supporters of artists on the upcoming Australian music scene and will be an event that will rock each venue.
