Auckland Wedding Band & Covers Bands for Hire
A sibling duo hailing from the Auckland region, The Dobros have been playing together for 27 years – musically for the past 9. As a popular band in Auckland's bar circuit, The Dobros also play as a wedding band for hire. The Dobros have built a reputation as an Auckland covers band which caters to all generations of music lovers.
Boasting far too many instruments for a two-piece band, their instruments include guitars, banjo, piano accordion, harmonicas, bass and a cajon. Describing their sound as a rock/folk fusion, The Dobros specialise in taking well known songs, and making them their own.
The Dobros are a reliable Auckland band for hire, which, through a combination of a high quality PA, and the use multiple instruments and percussion techniques, can create a much fuller sound than most traditional two piece bands for hire.
A Big Sound for a 2-Piece
Using a combination of multiple instruments, a cajon, two-way harmonies and foot-controlled percussion pedals (plus the very occasional loop), it is often remarked that The Dobros sounds like a lot more than just two people.

"Best little cover band around! They not only cover songs but they make them their own. 10/10 would book again and recommend to others".

Not your cliche' setlist
As a band, we think it is important to play songs that we actually enjoy and can put our maximum effort into. While we still know how to play most of your standard, oft-requested pub classics, we are often complemented on the diversity of our setlist, and how it differs from other covers bands. We pride ourselves on being able to appeal to all audience. We've played 18th Birthdays, through to 75th Birthdays! We enjoy reading the crowd and tailoring our set-list accordingly. Our set-list encompasses all generations of great music!
