The Perfect Venue For All Occasions

Dave Dobbyn is welcoming New Zealanders' freedom to come together in music by hosting a series of shows in August.

“My last performance was on Zoom for the Music Helps charity that provides assistance to all those behind the scenes who have lost work. Now I have the opportunity to open up our horizons again, to put the band and crew on the road and bond through real-life gatherings” said Dobbyn.

“We are keeping it intimate for this run but it still means a team of 10 on the road and we can’t wait to make connections and meet people. Loading in gear and packing out at the end of the night has never been more appealing for the production team!”

Dobbyn will perform some hidden gems from his catalogue alongside much-loved anthems, with his long-standing rhythm section of Jo Barus from Christchurch on bass and drummer Ross Burge from Auckland.

Good Will (Christchurch musician Will McGillivray in his first performances since the split of his band nomad) is playing support on all shows.

Doors open at 7pm,                  Good Will from 8pm                  Dave Dobbyn from 8:45pm

*Bars will close at 8:40pm - Free water station will be available

Hopetoun Brown light up the night, their antique wind instruments shrieking wildly, evoking the spirit of New Orleans funeral processions or futuristic funk jams.

This is Supergroove’s horn section. Expect electric pianos, vibraphones and a van load of horns playing deep down bass lines and jumping sax licks like you’ve never heard! These New Zealand Music Hall of Fame inductees adore rare and antique acoustic instruments such the vibraphone and the bass clarinet, while embracing the bombastic power of the tuba, the tenor saxophone, trombones and multiple trumpets. They’ve teamed up with Finn Scholes, arguably one of the finest improvisers currently playing trumpet in New Zealand to form a unique and musically diverse act that can be at once tender and soulful while at times, anarchic and heavy.

Bar & Bar Snacks available

Hopetoun Brown is part of the CHB Spring Fling - A series of standout events in Central Hawke's Bay

Tickets $27.50 + booking fee
