Bio

DUB ZOO is a unique genre-bending project from a group of dub-wise musicians who all share a passion for improvisation. The forthcoming new music from the band features a collective of vocalists including Lizzie O’Keefe (Dangerous Song), Ben Goldstein (Hot Potato Band) and Graham Moes (Fat Picnic) as well as the multi-instrumental mayhem of Lee Hardisty on keys, sax, flute and kalimba and the heavy weight rhythm section of Paddy Kiernan (guitar), Brad Wenham (bass) and Leon Tussie (drums).Based on the Sunshine Coast of Australia, DUB ZOO originally came together as an experimental collaboration, exploring the idea that live improvisation can be an immersive and transformative experience for both the player and the listener. The band was soon packing out dancefloors and festival stages with a high energy set of progressive dub and deep psychedelic grooves and releasing two live albums along the way. When 2020 put a stop to touring plans, the band pivoted into a new studio project, aimed at making a record which would capture the dynamic energy of the band’s live set.
