Salmonella Dub to headline Canterbury A&P Show

Salmonella Dub to headline Canterbury A&P Show

This year’s Canterbury A&P Show will see New Zealand band Salmonella Dub perform on the Main Stage from 12-14 November. This will be the first time the full band line-up has performed together on stage since 2012.

The iconic band has won fans around the world with their unique mix of dub, rock, jazzy horns, drum ‘n’ bass, electronica and reggae and has seen them produce several multi-platinum and gold-selling albums.

Founding member Andrew Penman says that playing at the Canterbury A&P Show is a home coming of sorts. “We started in a garage at the back of a flat in Forfar street in 1992, now 22 years later we’re spread far and wide but stay connected to where it all started. Our recent release Same Home Town reflects this and is a dedication to Christchurch and our people of Canterbury.”

“As Cantabrians, our rural landscape has shaped us culturally and our music reflects this. My first vivid memories include being butted into a macrocapa hedge by a ram as a three-year old, and playing on my uncle’s farm in Ashburton. I first remember going to The Show as a six-year old having just moved from Southland to Christchurch in the early 70’s and then later as a young university student trying to sneak into the Baa Baa Bar!”

Canterbury A&P Show Event Director Geoff Bone is looking forward to hosting the band across all three days of the A&P Show.

“Typically we have had our headline act play on Showday Friday only, so we’re really looking forward to being able to offer our Wednesday and Thursday Show visitors the same level of top-quality entertainment and to have a band of Salmonella Dub’s calibre is really exciting.”

“The band is unique in the fact that their music appeals across generations, and their broad fan base will be looking forward to seeing the full band together for the first time in over two years.”

Salmonella Dub will play on the Main Stage of the Village Green on Wednesday 12, Thursday 13 and Friday 14 November 2014. Tickets for the Canterbury A&P Show and to see Salmonella Dub perform live are available atwww.theshow.co.nz.
