Katchafire, Great Northern, Sunday
One of the hardest-working and most-respected collectives to come out of New Zealand, Katchafire have evolved into a formidable force on the international music scene.
Off the back of the release of their platinum-selling fourth studio album On The Road Again, a nonstop 2012 has seen the legendary Aotearoa roots rockers smash a mammoth 25-date headline tour of the USA and Hawaii, while over in the UK the band have been nominated for Best International Band at the British Reggae Music Awards.
The eight-piece band, that hosts five extraordinary singer/songwriters, delivers one of the most authentic reggae shows around today. Katchafire will blaze into Australian spring with their iconic reggae sound, lighting the way out of the winter chill. Catch fire at the Hotel Great Northern, Sunday.
