They had never walked onto a stage before, but this was soon to change. Benjalu’s first ever performance at a state wide school band comp won them $10,000 in prizes and a spot next to past winners Silverchair and Alex Lloyd.
Since then, benjalu have been thriving and following the steps of independent acts before them, benjalu is a band that prides itself on the old school, grassroots approach of touring to promote their music and in 2008/09, travelling the dirt roads and highways of Australia they clocked well over 400 shows together. An approach that has seen them gain the respect of their fans.
