More Badfinger than Bob Marley, Melbourne’s premier ‘Pseudo-Reggae’ band rock effortless through a thick gumbo of different genres and influences from Beatles-era British pop to the Jamaican dance music of their namesake.

Cementing these disparate elements for the locally-renowned 13 piece group (and keeping their feet planted firmly in Reggae territory) are the catchy male/female melodies, huge horn section, heavy bass and staccato guitar/ organ chords that characterize The Dubbies' familiar sound.

Since stepping out in their current incarnation in 2011, the Plastic-Soul juggernaut have performed countless headline shows, festival slots and some choice supports including opening for the likes of multi Grammy-winner Ziggy Marley.


“With a reggae influence, which singer Hamish Knight’s vocals handles with pure aplomb, these boys and girls are like a touring party of pleasure.” – Get Shot Magazine

“Before the music started it was hard to say what was about to come as an eclectic mix of people kept pouring onto the stage (thirteen people to be exact) and you could have easily confused this for an Arcade Fire show. These comparisons were quickly thrown out of the window as a timid looking Hamish Knight opened his mouth to reveal a surprisingly soulful voice.” – Tonedeaf
