Congratulations to Zenith ASP who won our NT AWOL competition.
More about this comp
Describe your music. What can the crowd at Humpty Doo expect when you hit the stage?
We are a band that loves to perform live and love nothing more than to rock a crowd at a big show. Our sets keep the crowd going with a variety of Roots, Rock and Reggae. It’s been over a year since we’ve been to Darwin so we can promise our fans a great show in Humpty Doo.
What's an average rehearsal session like? Where does it take place?
Our average rehearsal session is about two to three hours and takes place two to three times a week at my house in Alice Springs. We live about 5km out of town so we can practice as loud and as late as we want! During the session we run through all of our originals and focus on new ideas and energy to enhance our live performance.
We hear that some of you are doing your HSC this year. Is it hard to fit the band into that equation?
Callum Evan and I are all in year 12 and the band has always been a main priority along with school and our social lives. Although we spend most of our week at school, we still find the time to rehearse and stay on top of the music. Many of our weekends are busy playing music around Alice Springs and traveling for gigs, music workshops and recording around Australia.
Tell us what your local music scene is like.
Alice Springs has a really great music scene right now with lots of young bands really emerging. With performers like Tashka Urban doing some great stuff and Tecoma who’s already an established act out of Alice. Also, the Bass in the Dust (Alice) and Bass in the Grass (Darwin) shows each year have been a huge help for bands to get a taste of what it’s like to perform on a big stage with some of the top acts in the Australian music scene.
What are your plans for the future?
I would love nothing more than to be playing in front of Australian fans in Zenith ASP for the rest of my life.
Australian music is...
THE BEST IN THE WORLD!!!
