Brief History of Dave Manhire

I like to ride my bicycles, race slot cars, and lot’s of live music! V8s and Vdubs rule the road. Grankids make life perfect and I never get tired of great music.
Back when I was hanging around
3MDR(co-presenting) and doing sound eng. I had fun with bands such as….

“The Highway Dogs”
Reify
Defryhme
Norsia (Stu also drummed for Mark of Cain)
Fireballs
Stephen Hogg (Ex Reify’s solo stuff) – “Diamond Shifter” (Played a bit on these too)
Big Pop Monsters
and doing cabaret shows was fun touring the RSL’s with seven singers and band WITH a horn section!, two of the girls later formed BABBA…

Jobs? I’ve had plenty, I could probably do a whole blog about all the different jobs I’ve had over the years! (and I just might).
Kids, well I like ’em, and have managed to accumulate half a dozen and now grand kids are sprouting so I can still play Lego and cars for a few more years yet!

  1. Good work Dave with the fundraising & ride to go with it. PS, if you wanna update the Steve Hogg bit..Its on YouTube as http://www.youtube.com/diamondshifter As you know Diamond Shifter is the name of the original act. Yes you played on two songs. PS I contacted Billy Nicholls on Facebook and he friended me also. He listened to UNDERSTAND on YouTube. I think he was chuffed.

    1. Hey Stephen, and yes I will update your spot to include your resurgence! Billy is the man I call when I need female backing vocals, no sexism here!
