Zephyrbees to buzz at Roots Festival
THE stage at the Kuranda Roots festival will buzz alive with local band Zephyrbees set to perform at the festival for the first time.
Headed by songwriter and vocalist Thomas Lowth, the band consist of two guitars, a bass guitar a drummer and plays a mix of funk and indie rock music.
Despite performing with international acts such as Wolfmother earlier in the year, the band has never played at the Kuranda Roots Festival.
“We play around Cairns we have just never been to Kuranda Roots to play,” Thomas said.
“We are very stoked but it has been a bit of an up and down journey because pretty much everyone in the band couldn’t make it so I had to piece together a whole new outfit in the last week.
“I’ve basically got new tunes so none of these songs have ever been played by Zephyrbees live, it is new material from the new band so it is pretty exciting.”
Thomas said people can expect a whole new energy and a totally new Zephyrbees with new tunes, high energy and good vibes.
“I am super stoked to be playing at the festival and so are the other guys in the band,” he said.
The Kuranda Roots Festival will be run this 15-17 July and see hundreds of locals and visitors alike flocking to Emerald Creek Falls for the festival.
