Stu Mitchell was a renowned Edmonton, Alberta drummer who was a member of several Wes Dakus led bands.

Wes Dakus & The Club 93 Rebels formed in 1958 and often interchanged personnel with Edmonton's Nomads. They were signed to Quality Records in 1960 and released "El Ringo" that year. Touring as the backing act for several other prominent artists, including Buddy Knox, which established the band as seasoned professionals allowing them to record material as Wes Dakus & The Rebels with famed producer Norm Petty (Buddy Holly & The Crickets, The Fireballs) starting in 1962. Later sessions in 1964 also produced recordings for Dakus himself and erstwhile member Barry Allen's side project as a solo artist. There were also singles released under the name The Dundeeville Players featuring guitarist George Tomsco.

In 1965 'The Wes Dakus Album - With The Rebels' was released on Capitol and spawned several singles including "Hobo" and "Come On Down". In 1966 an album of additional tracks was issued on KAPP in the US as "Wes Dakus's Rebels". In Canada the album was not released but split into several individual singles as solo recordings for the band's various members including Wes Dakus, Stu Mitchell, Barry Allen and Dennis Paul.
