Dave Dobbyn -- Back
With His Kinda People
Dave Dobbyn, after the folky theatre jaunt last year with Tim Finn and Bic Runga, is back as a rocknroll road warrior half way through his My Kinda People tour of drinking establishments.
How was it playing to the Hobbits? [Dobbyn and band played at a wrap party for Lord of the Rings]
That was interesting. They had a huge party. It went all night and we did a really rockin set. In the hotel in the morning getting the 7 oclock cab to the flight and people were coming in from the party beer in hand, big black eyes and grinding teeth and I thought there but for the grace of God go I. .
Peter Jackson is a fan, apparently?
We met his 2IC and Im trying to hit him up for the next series. See if I can do something in the elfin stakes I do a pretty good impression of a monster with pointy ears. Ive been a reasonable impression of Yoda for some years now.
