Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
Brisbane roof raisers Kingfisha have been laying down weighty reggae and dub, and bringing their passionate music to eager audiences for over five years - in the process cementing themselves as Australia’s premier reggae act. The six-piece band deliver crafted and modern reggae music by coupling their love of Jamaican rhythms with personal depth and style.
Their incredibly well received self titled debut album saw lead single ‘Piece of the Puzzle’ added to Triple J and landed album of the week status at PBS FM, Radio Australia and East Side Radio amongst plenty of rave reviews. Kingfisha have enjoyed touring opportunities that have taken them to some of the world’s most interesting places such as a recent wildly successful run of shows in Southern Africa including South Africa, Mozambique, Reunion Island and Swaziland.
Going from strength to strength, Kingfisha recently inked deals with 123 Agency for bookings and ABC Music for the release of "Offered It Up" ahead of their huge national tour.
Their latest album "Offered It Up" is available now through: http://abcmusic.lnk.to/OfferedItUp
