NEW CD "HAVE I MISSED ANYONE"

I Have just recorded my third live comedy CD at the Mintaro Sporting Club and it should be ready from the end of July! Had a ball doing it with Anthony Stewart at the controls (and on guitar). As the title suggests, it's fairly politically incorrect! But remember, it's all in fun and it's all a joke!!!!

I'll be putting up a video and a couple of tracks soon.

Great festival in Barmera this year. Crowds were up. Congratulations to Dot and Murray and the team.



G'Day, just got home from a quick trip to Northern NSW with Doug Walters and Greg Hay and our "Larrilins Alive" show. Strated at the Currumindi Hotel Motel in  Qld, and then a big night out  the Maclean Bowling Club and  a night at the Bangalow Bowling Club. Great show at all venues.

I get a couple of weeks home, and then it's full on. I'm doing the Pascoe Vale RSL club with Tim Farren's band on Friday the 4th of March. On saturday, it's a show with old mate Harry Jon Nannos at Rachel's place in Seymour, and on Sunday the 6th, It's the Wandong Country Music Festival.

On the 12th, I'll be working with old mates Adam Harvey and Sandra Humphries at the Cowell Ute Muster, and then Adam and I will be doing a special accoustic night at the Mintaro Sporting Club Sunday evening.

On the 18th, it's the Terang Hotel, the 19th, The terang Country Music festival, and Sunday the 20th, the Beaufort Country Music club.

Last but not least in March, I'm of to the Alice for the 40th Birthday celebrations of 8HA.

I'm then going to spend a couple of days finishing the writing part of my New CD with my good mate Ian heydon.

          +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Just got home from Tamworth. What a great week! Many thanks to Graham Roger for the spot on his show at the community centre. I had a ball each morning at the Longyard with Neil McArther and his band of faithfull poets, as I did with Adam Kilpatrick and his mates at the Hogs Breath Cafe each morning at 10! It's a bit like old school week, where you catch up with a bunch of good mates you only get to see once a year.





HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Hey Everyone, hope you are all enjoying the start to 2011!


New Album Out In July-August!

My new album is in the making called Have I Missed Anyone Out. Another comedy album recorded in front of a live audience (...or were they all dead and just egging me on?) It will only cost $25 fr you to find out!
Have a listen to the preview track down below "Call Me Mr. Gillard"




I'm coming to Tamworth!!!

Come see me at Tamworth again in 2011! They let me back! It's starting on the 14th of January through to 23rd January. I'd love to see you all there.




EAST COAST RUN

My little run through NSW was a lot of fun, catching up with a few mates along the way. It was great to work with Mike Carr at the Bateau Bay Sports club, Laroosa's Rest in Sydney, and then the Wyong RSL club. It was then off to the Lithgow and Katoomba RSL clubs form shows with Greg Hayes and Peter Dean. On the way home I stopped at Wagga Wagga and did a show at the RSL club. What a great laid back afternoon, and many thanks to the CM club for organising it.

Here's a photo at the Lithgow RSL.





March 2010

What a great Tamworth! I had a great time doing the support for Adam Harvey's 2 Tamworth shows, a great time doing the Bush Poet's breakfasts with Neal McArther at the Longyard, and a great time doing the Honky Tonk Bar at the Family with Bob Howie and Band.

On Sunday the 6th of March it was off to the Mt Gambier Festival where I caught up with Sandra Humphries and Henry, Graham Hugo and met Alan Webster. A fine time had by all, including a couple of reds.

This month my tour of NSW takes me to Picton, Sydney, Wagga Wagga, Bataeu Bay, Wyong, Lithgow and Katoomba. See gig guide for details.



PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release
September 15, 2009


Following on the heels of his first critically acclaimed foray into live comedy with his
somewhat self titled album ‘Big Fat Bastard’s Like Me’, Dave Prior is back to his observant comic best with his latest offering titled ‘The Soup’s Too Hot’.

The title tracked, spurned by a grumpy old man whose only conversation with his long suffering spouse at a non-too salubrious roadhouse in a non too exotic remote location was to complain the ‘Soup’s too Hot’ sparked the new album. Once again the big man draws on his own experience of life, his long search for a relationship and his relationship with the long arm of the law to deliver such arresting numbers as ‘The Slamming of the Door’, ‘The Uniformed Tax Collector and ‘Waiting for Lotto.

The live album, recorded with Stuie French at his side and co-written with Ian Heydon of ‘Kingswood Country’ and ‘How Green is my Cactus’ fame delivers 10 fresh, uniquely original and laugh out loud tracks.

And whilst Dave’s career continues to take him to destinations largely only ever heard of on Slim Dusty songs, he’s more recently been risking deep vein thrombosis and fending off bankruptcy with club and corporate performances interstate and overseas. In addition, the athletically challenged big guy has joined with big name cricketing legends Lennie Pascoe and Doug Walters for shows across the country. Dave and Doug have a lot in common, and strangely enough, it’s not cricket.

August 2008



It may have taken five connecting flights and a dodgy stopover in Port Moresby
to get him there but Dave Prior’s latest foray overseas to New Guinea’s gold mining island of Lihir left thousands of natives and expats with a country music fix they’ll long remember courtesy of a 5 show program and backing from a great band of Lihirian local muso’s.

It was a first for both Dave and the band, for Dave it was the first time he’d seen New Guinea and for the guys in the band it was the first time they’d seen much less ever used a guitar tuner. Given the success of and excitement generated by the said tuner, upon his return Dave promptly purchased one and sent it back to the boys in the band as a pressie.

But the Lihir learning curve wasn’t all one sided. Dave received a valuable lesson in
native music when having explained to the band’s drummer that the beat of a song had a ‘train feel’ about it, was promptly informed that not only had the drummer never heard a train,….he’d never seen one!

The overseas adventures just never seem to end for Dave, last year it was France, this year New Guinea,…next year who knows maybe a gig at an Icelandic Seal Rescue Foundation Dinner in Vladivostok. Who says country music can’t take you places.





July 2008




Singer songwriters and performers Dave Prior and Jon O’Dea don’t mind their audiences laughing at them, they encourage it.

The pair renowned for their string of popular albums and country music hits may seem unlikely on-stage bedfellows but the combination makes for what audiences and critics are acclaiming as one of the most entertaining evenings of one liners, tall tales and song on offer.

Dave, well known amongst country music fans and popular as the big man with the big voice interrupts proceeding s constantly to give your laugh lines a workout while John isn’t afraid of flogging the odd tear duct with some heartfelt tunes that have seen him shoot up the Australian Country Music Charts and walk away with a string of awards.

The pair attribute their prolific songwriting success to having had the perfect life from which to garnish material having both dealt with death, drinking, near death, tragic dog tales, drinking, constantly unrequited love and love which in hindsight would have been better had it gone unrequited.


A Recent great time had at the Horsham Country Music Festival nin April 2008. Here's a pic or two.




It was great to catch up with so many people at the Mildura Country Music festival recently.

I've been busy, including a gig in France. Check out the photo's in the photo section. Here's the press release:

A crowd of over 5000 flocked to Le Neubourg in September for the
annual DAM Country Music Festival in France. Heading the international
line-up was Australian artist Dave Prior who, backed by a sensational solid 3 piece band of French based session muso’s kept the crowd on its feet for over an hour.

The crowd stayed with the big Australian as he reeled off a string of well known crowd favourites including Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash in addition to his own original works. The crowd stayed on to snap up copies of his CD in droves after the concert. Dave recalls there for a brief moment he experienced what
It felt like to be Adam Harvey, loved, applauded, adored, and for those standing far enough back in the crowd, he could have even been mistaken for being handsome! But, c’est la vie things have settled down now he’s back on Aussie dirt with the crowds close enough to know the truth, and being mobbed by a frenzy of French Country music fans now a distant, but fond memory. 






Tamworth is look fantastic for me this year. I have 12 shows over the week so check out my gig guide and make sure you come and say Hello!
