Ban Solo bring the good vibes to Melon Festival

MELON Festival 2019 will make dreams come true for one Queensland band that has been busting a gut to land their breakthrough gig for over a year.

Indie-reggae rock band Ban Solo consists of four Brisbane mates who met while studying at JMC academy in South Brisbane.

Front man Benjamin Solomon said getting asked to perform at Melon Festival as an opener for iconic Aussie band Mental As Anything would be an incredible experience for the four-man band.

"Over the last 12 months since we've been playing together we've been really hustling for gigs. Playing for the first time to a large audience at a festival will make it all worthwhile,” he said.

Lead guitarist Rigby Wilshire said Ban Solo brought a lot of energy to the stage and playing at Melon Festival wouldn't be any different.

"We like to dance and bring good vibes,” he said.

With its upbeat music and cheeky lyrics Ban Solo is sure to have the crowd grooving along to songs such as Millionaires and No Control, both of which can be found on the band's SoundCloud website.

Solomon and Wilshire will join Axel White on bass guitar and Kieran Farrell on drums at the free family concert on Saturday, February 16 at the Chinchilla State School oval from 6pm.
