Salmonella Dub’s impressive and very important place in New Zealand music history is undeniable - seven studio albums, three remix albums, a live album with the NZSO, four EP’s, and over 161 songs collectively achieving 10 x platinum across a catalogue that has sold over 600k worldwide, 270 + festival appearances, five Tui awards, and twelve Bnets awards all proving testament to this band's iconic status.
From their very first live appearance in 1993, creativity, energy, driving bass beats and pure joy are the signature hallmarks of one of New Zealand’s most successful bands.
