dDub are one of New Zealand’s best loved live acts. Engaging and uplifting, the dDub crew propel their way seamlessly through a powerful and non-stop rock/roots explosion. Horns, harmonies, and hands-high dDub tunes combine to create an elevating musical experience not to be missed.
Renowned for their 'cranking and skanking' live shows, the band never fails to connect with the crowd and they have become firm favourites at many nationwide outdoor festivals in NZ.
Just back from their 3rd Australian tour, dDub were overwhelmed by the response from the Australian public and press. “dDub’s accomplished lead singer/guitarist Derek Browne steered a massive groove and ska-hot brass to take the party through an explosive journey of high hands roots rock and reggae.” - Inpress (Melbourne)
dDub have recently released their 2nd full length album ‘Medicine Man’ to another round of 4 and 5 star reviews nationwide. Medicine Man spent 3 weeks on the National Top 40 album charts and debuted at number 2 on the Independent Charts. The single ‘Quicksand’ from the album is presently number 2 on the KiwiFM top 10.
“Their Live show is phenomenal, their vibe uplifting and the sound is infectious... Winter? dDub are the best warming medicine, man. Get yourself a dose" - The Press 04 08. - Vicki Anderson. dDub Medicine Man - 5 Stars
“Sophisticated arrangements, sweet tones, subtle poetic lyrics and good playing make dDub's Awake At Dawn (Vunderchick) a pleasant addition to the growing category of New Zealand reggae. Swift tempo changes, a mariachi-influenced horn section and squeaky-clean riddims -… show this band is a finely tuned vehicle capable of running full throttle straight through your town” - The Beat Magazine, USA
