AIR­LIE Beach is in for a mas­sive night at Mag­nums, one that would make even Led Zep­pelin proud.

Kingswood duo Alex Laska and lead vo­cal­ist Fer­gus Li­nacre started their rock‘n’roll ca­reer in 2009, and while they faced early chal­lenges, those days are well be­hind them.

Laska and Li­nacre first met at the age of 11 and made the fate­ful de­ci­sion to form a band shortly af­ter start­ing univer­sity.

Lead gui­tarist Laska said the two rock‘n’roll fa­nat­ics wanted to hit the ground run­ning and make an early name for them­selves, but found the road to glory was not quite so easy.

“We started play­ing at pubs and clubs and bars and we thought we were Led Zep­pelin,” he said.

“But then we re­alised we were re­ally s***.

“We made a de­ci­sion to take the ego out of the equa­tion and our songs needed to get bet­ter and we needed to prac­tice a lot and put the hard work in.

“It was a hard learning curve to go from there and fig­ure out how to get bet­ter.”

Com­ing to grips with their early re­al­ity, the Kingswood part­ners fine-tuned their per­for­mances and started reel­ing in fans.

Eight years since emerg­ing on the mu­sic scene, Kingswood are set to hit Air­lie Beach.

And they’re promis­ing to put on a show that re­ally would make Led Zep­pelin proud.

“Imag­ine Led Zep­pelin times by 100,” Laska said.

“It will be the best rock‘n’roll show that has ever hap­pened in the his­tory of rock‘n’roll.”

Kingswood are get­ting pumped to play at Air­lie Beach this Satur­day, be sure

to lock in the date to ex­pe­ri­ence real rock.
