Benjalu – Little Darling


Benjalu, a roots-rock 5 piece from Newcastle I’d never heard of took the main stage at Peats Ridge Festival last minute on NYE – someone dropped out, and they stepped up. They were so captivating they managed to hold a massive audience despite the haphazard nature of the line up change.  They drew a crowd up front, swaying in the sweltering afternoon heat, and hoards more sipping beer, lazing in the shade.  It was pretty awesome how everyone just seemed to shit the fuck up and listen; a sign of undeniable talent.
