Rockhampton River Festival is a FREE event. Tickets are not required.
There are very few performers who can captivate audience with just vocals and guitar alone - but Dave Dow is certainly one of those anomalies. His contagious humour and charismatic personality shines through stopping past passer-bys in their tracks as he demonstrates his musical aptitude and vocal skills on an eclectic range of styles ranging from Motown classics to the current top 20. As a performer, there is little Dave hasn't mastered.
Dave has opened shows, supported and collaborated with some of the biggest names in the Australian entertainment industry, and some impressive international visitors. From the likes of Wendy Matthews, Coloured Stone, James Morrison, Yothu Yindi, The Whitlams, Busby Marou, Darlene Zschech, Marina Prior, Jimmy Little and David Campbell, to the President of Naru, Tony Royster Jnr (USA), Ministry of Sound (U.K), Lucky Dube (Sth Africa), King Kapisi (NZ/Samoa) and band members of Al Green, Rhianna, Beyoncé, Whitesnake (USA), he moulds his musical style to suit any occasion. So versatile is this performer that he's gone from grooving through the hits of Motown one set, to lending his vocals to the plastic pop hits of the current charts just to suit his audience. From Country to the 'Crooners' era, then Aussie favourites to Gospel, it doesn't matter to Dave - it's all music and it's all about audience relevance and their enjoyment.
