Mastedon is the name of a Christian rock band formed by brothers Dino Elefante and John (former lead singer and songwriter of Kansas) in the mid-1980s. The band was formed mainly as a studio project and have released three full-length albums and two stand-alone songs on compilation albums.

Mastedon have recently signed with Italian label Frontiers Records.[1] The newest album, titled Mastedon 3, was released in 2009.[1]

Some of the collaborators in the band's albums were Dave Amato (from Ted Nugent band, also has been the guitarist for REO Speedwagon since 1990) and Stef Burnbaum (or Stef Burns, from Michael Bolton's touring band and Y&T). Other band members were bassist John Pierce (Pablo Cruise and Richard Marx), drummer David Raven, drummer Danny Woods (Uthanda), guitarist Kenny McCafferty (Underground, Tranzaction, Alibi, Dirty Blonde), and guest vocalists David Pack (Ambrosia), David Robbins (X-Sinner), Tom Bowes (Tower of Power), James Dean Longacre (Life9), and Perry Lee (Tracer Fox). The album was also a reunion of sorts between John Elefante and former Kansas bandmate Kerry Livgren, who appears on two of the tracks.
