Dave Dobbyn and Elemenop – loved by the Coroglen Crowd

Sir Dave sang all his original well-loved songs – Slice of Heaven, You Oughta Be In Love, Loyal, Love You Like I Should, and the crowd of over 2,000 sang along – almost every single word of the lyrics they sang from memory.

Dave Dobbyn, KNZM is 67. This Knight of the Realm didn’t miss a beat for his cheering audience of parents, adult children and teens sometimes all from one family and all there to see Dave Dobbyn.

I am not sure if any in the audience remembered that two years ago Dave wrote on social media that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. This has altered his guitar playing but who would have noticed?

What is noticeable is the way they hang on to the words about love and loyal One gets the feeling that our Ives could do with more love with a strong connection to loyalty. Sir Dave Robyn is focusing on his music and his large number of followers who span three generations. His band was tight and in total harmony with the man on centre stage. The large number in the band looked like the United Nations of musicians.

ELEMENOP, the first act for the night was also very much at home with their audience having played at Coroglen before and played on the same stage as Sir Dave before. The crowd was ecstatic for them. Coroglen Tavern with this very special concert had made for a very wonderful, chilled and exciting night.

It was a little over a year ago that Fleur and Paul Clayton, Brent and Sheree Prisk, purchased the Coroglen Tavern and included in the deal, part ownership for Luke Findlay and Liana Johnston dedicated locals and loyal in Coroglen. They were young blood coming into the industry. From every angle this trio of partners is making such an inroad into high class and high energy entertainment for a span of generations right across the North Island. Well done with the number and variety of events at Coroglen Tavern.
