BALLARAT band Gold Fields have taken their sound to the lounge rooms of millions of Americans with a performance on talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live.
It was the debut US network TV appearance for the five piece, who performed their songs Moves and Dark Again (Lights Out).
Lead singer Mark Robert Fuller said at first the band couldn't believe they had been asked to play the show.
"We got an email about three or four weeks ago and they asked if we wanted to be on Kimmel. Of course we said yes straight away," he said.
Fuller said the band was thrilled to meet Jimmy Kimmel himself, something most musical guests don't get to do.
"I got a tap on the shoulder just before we were about to play and he said 'where are you from?' I told him Ballarat, near Melbourne.
"He said he didn't know where that was and I told him he should visit, it's a pretty cool place," Fuller told The Courier from Los Angeles.
The band travelled 17 hours from Portland by car to appear on the show, Fuller said.
But he added punishing schedule was paying off and had been the culmination of a lot of work leading up to the tour.
The band is about to wind up its first tour of the US, before getting ready to embark on another set of shows and an appearance at Austin's influential South by Southwest music festival.
"The tour over there has been pretty amazing so far. We've been blown away by the crowds that have come out. It's a pretty welcome surprise."
