SATURDAY 19 JANUARY 2019 MUSIC & COMMUNITY GROUP

LTTLE KNG… beginnings

LTTLE KNG are a mish-mash of musical genres, un-apologetically staying outside the box, this crafty act mould haunting vocals, cheeky riffs, dope rhythms and a collection of effects to create something a little bit interesting. Their tunes are completely accessible but at the same time, for want of a better word, still unique.

Based on the Mid North Coast of NSW, LTTLE KNG collaborators Joshua Matheson & Chris Boaz have played together under various guises for the best part of 9 years and teamed up to create some unique pseudo-pop-electro-soul vibes. With influences that include Chet Faker, Jordan Rakei, Fat Freddy’s Drop, and Drake to name a few, LK combines their hybrid pop-electro-funk-soul sound with clever melodies and catchy hooks creating a cocktail of musical tastiness.

Their foray into the live music scene started in 2015, having been successful in an original song competition, they were selected support Donavon Frankenreiter on one of his east coast shows prior to his appearance at the Byron Bay Blues & Roots Festival.

Their debut self-titled EP was produced by Alex Gooden, who has previously worked with Evermore, Bluejuice and Megan Washington, at Myrtle Street Studios in Sydney, and released in June on the North Coast, followed by a brief East Coast tour and a two week tour of New Zealand’s South Island, where their music was extremely well received.

Between the back-and-forth of touring the East Coast, promoting their music, of which they are receiving airplay all over the country, snowboarding, surfing and skating, LTTLE KNG continue to spend their days tucked away in the Hinterland of the Coffs Coast, writing & rehearsing.

Dont miss them playing on the main stage from 10am to 2pm


THE BELLINGEN ENVIRONMENT CENTRE (BEC) IS OUR COMMUNITY GROUP OF THE MONTH

The BEC was formed in 1989 in response to the growing awareness that to deal with environmental issues, members of the community needed to work through an organisation to achieve the maximum benefit. It was also seen essential the organisation become incorporated to take its responsibility seriously and to formalise the structure, accountability and liability.

Aims

The BEC committee works towards:

  • Promotion of the cause of environmental issues
  • Protection of the natural environment and biodiversity of the Bellinger Valley
  • Fostering proactive responses to climate change with a commitment to non-violent action principles
Members

With its many members the BEC is one of the major community organisations in the region, with the projects it undertakes being supported by a large number of people. Apart from the direct involvement with the BEC, many of our members also make a personal contribution in Land-care, Dune-care, and River-care Groups in our Shire.

Funding

The BEC is funded by membership fees, member contributions, and our twice yearly fund-raiser, The Plant Fair . We are a major share-holder in the Sustainable Earth Project, by donation of shares by our members, and as a share-holder we are also responsible for the commercial loans towards the Solar Installation on our building.

They will be on the gates raising needed money to fund their valuable projects, so help them where you can. They will also have a stall along the west side of the footy oval so go and find out what they are up to and what you can do to help our beautiful Bellingen environment.
