Dogstar was an American alternative rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1991. Notable for featuring actor Keanu Reeves as the bassist, the band enjoyed moderate success and a dedicated following during the 1990s and early 2000s. Dogstar released two studio albums, Our Little Visionary in 1996 and Happy Ending in 2000, and an EP titled Quattro Formaggi in 1996. Despite never breaking into the mainstream, the band performed at major music festivals and enjoyed international tours before disbanding in the early 2000s.

Keanu Reeves

Well, I guess he played more than just air guitar, as we watched him play in the Bill and Ted movies. Keanu Reeves, known primarily for his acting career, co-founded Dogstar in the early 1990s. He played bass guitar and was a backing vocalist for the band. Reeves contributed significantly to the sound and composition in both of Dogstar’s studio albums. His participation brought considerable attention to the band from both fans and the media, although he always aimed to keep the focus on the music rather than his celebrity. Outside of Dogstar, Reeves has had an illustrious film career, starring in blockbuster hits such as the Matrix series and John Wick films.

Robert Mailhouse

Robert Mailhouse was the drummer and a founding member of Dogstar. He met Reeves in a supermarket in Los Angeles and discovered their mutual passion for music, leading to the formation of the band. Mailhouse played on all of Dogstar’s recordings and was essential in the songwriting and creative direction of the group. His other career highlights include acting roles on television shows such as Days of Our Lives and various movie projects.

Bret Domrose

Bret Domrose joined Dogstar as the lead vocalist and guitarist in 1994, solidifying the band’s lineup. His arrival marked a pivotal point in defining the band’s musical style, contributing heavily to both albums, particularly as a songwriter and lead vocalist. Domrose was responsible for much of the creative output during the band’s most active years. After Dogstar disbanded, he continued his music career and worked on various solo projects.

Dogstar’s music was marked by its blend of grunge and alternative rock. While it was more recognized for its famous bassist than for its chart success, Dogstar left a mark on the live music scene with heartfelt and engaging performances. The members have since pursued individual careers, but Dogstar’s legacy as a part of the 90s rock scene continues to endure among fans.
