Waipa Post - - Classifieds -

Ever­green Kiwi rocker Dave Dobbyn is an ex­cit­ing in­clu­sion in the line-up when the enig­matic sub­ject of 2012’s hit doc­u­men­tary Search­ing For Sugar Man

— Detroit psy­che­delic folk artist Ro­driguez (aka Sixto Ro­driguez), makes a most wel­come re­turn to New Zealand in Fe­bru­ary.

Ro­driguez is head­lin­ing at Villa Maria Win­ery on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 2. Also on the bill are The Topp Twins and The East­ern.

With a plethora of hits span­ning his ca­reer in Th’ Dudes, DD Smash and as a solo artist, Dave Dobbyn brings to the ta­ble such great tunes as Be Mine Tonight, Slice Of Heaven, Loyal and Wel­come Home.

All are in­cluded on our fea­tured CD — Dave Dobbyn: A Slice Of Heaven – 40 Years Of Hits — and we have two copies up for grabs as the ideal pre­cur­sor to have you ready for an awesome night of rock.

Thanks to boot­leg record­ings and word of mouth, Ro­driguez’s first and most fa­mous of record­ings, Cold Fact, found its way to South Africa where its counter-cul­ture lyrics res­onated with the coun­try’s po­lit­i­callyalien­ated youth.

With­out a tele­phone and work­ing fac­tory and con­struc­tion jobs to sup­port his fam­ily, Ro­driguez re­mained obliv­i­ous to the fact that he was ar­guably big­ger than Elvis in South Africa.

Nearly five decades after the re­lease of his de­but, Ro­driguez’s in­cred­i­ble vo­cal and mu­si­cal skill is fi­nally be­ing heard by au­di­ences around the globe.
