Sunshine Coast Psychedelic surf roots & Progressive rockers - Band of Frequencies have played all over the world with the likes of Donovan Frankenreiter, John Butler, Angus Stone and Ash Grunwald; as well as some of the world's most amazing festivals and events. Among them the Billabong 'Banzai' Pipe Masters, Hawaii; North Shore Surf Film Festival, Hawaii; Surf & Sound Tour, Japan. Not to mention some of Australia's premier festivals: Splendour in the Grass, Mullum Music Festival and Woodford Folk Festival.

True believers in sounds beyond boundaries, Band of Frequencies draw their influences from a vast spectrum of roots, rock, electronic and psychedelic styles.

Their signature blend comes from years of live experimentation, constantly pushing their influences into the creative fires to see what melts, what explodes and what merges.

They have now successfully forged a bond of sonic elements that represents their coastal roots and strikes a chord in the hearts of passionate music lovers around the globe. It's this quality that has lead to invitations to grace the stages of diverse festivals, at home and abroad, and to record soundtracks to several internationally released surf films.

The name Band of Frequencies refers to the concept that each person vibrates at a certain frequency with the lowest being fear and hate and the highest being love and compassion. "Like radio and TV stations, we also broadcast our particular band of frequencies at any given moment. We are just a Band of Freq's doing our thing to raise the collective frequency through sound"

In October 2011 Band of Frequencies toured California supporting the non- profit organisation 'Surfers for Cetaceans' as part of an ocean awareness campaign called the TransparentSea Voyage USA, contributing their skills by writing, recording & uploading 23 songs in 23 days. Other guest artists featured on the voyage were Angus Stone, Isabel Lucas, Chris Del Moro, Denny Aarberg & Tristan Prettyman.

The voyage was very successful in bringing attention to the amazing local Environmental organizations on the Californian coast fighting to preserve ocean life & its intricate ecosystems.

The tour also lead to an invitation to perform on the North Shore, Hawaii as part of the Triple Crown Surfing events for Billabong, the major sponsor of TransparentSea Voyage USA. A highlight being a run of shows on the shore at the famous 'Banzai' Pipeline as the finals were taking place for the Billabong Pipe Masters.
