Dave Dobbyn - A Slice Of Heaven: 40 Years Of Hits

Wednesday 26th April 2017

Dobbyn’s extraordinary musical career began with high school band Th’ Dudes. His first try at writing a song was a ‘disaster’ and never saw the light of day, but he took the next attempt to the band. That song - ‘Be Mine Tonight’ - went on to be Th’ Dudes first release and winner of Single of the Year at the National Music Awards in 1979.

Four decades on, Dave Dobbyn’s music has become part of the nation’s soundtrack. He has an astonishing 10 songwriting credits on APRA’s Top 100 New Zealand Songs of All Time,
featuring songs released by Th’ Dudes, DD Smash and as a solo artist. He’s won Best Male Vocalist a record six times and the most awards of any New Zealand musician - three Silver Scroll awards and 29 New Zealand Music Awards across his career. The music hasn’t stopped coming - he released a 10th studio album as a solo artist, Harmony House, just last year.

“Playing provincial New Zealand gigs is my favourite thing,” Dobbyn said. “I love it so much, it’s pure pleasure. Just being aware of the community and community life - everyone’s celebrating, there’s an energy flow that’s healthily contagious.”
