 The DuBay Band




  Biography

After being in a string of moderately successful bands throughout the 1970's, Claude Dube, a graduate of McMaster University, moved to Los Angeles in 1980 to pursue a music and song writing career. Rather quickly, he found himself playing the Hollywood circuit with the band 'London' (which eventually would spawn 'Motley Crue'). After 'London' disbanded, Claude partnered with Hollywood producer Ron Pane ('MinuteMen', 'Dokken', 'Great White') and for 3 years he honed his production and writing skills. The two went on to release an album and EP together.
In 1985, Claude returned to Toronto with his familyarticle and regrouped with band mates and song writing partner Dennis Decker (lead guitar), brother Dan Dube (bass), Nicholas Holden (guitar/vocals), and discovered drummer Kevin Camilleri by auditions, thus forming DuBay. Since 1990, the band created and promoted through their own label, "Limozine Records", 8 original CDs and their singles, including 9 videos. The catalogue includes Bonjour, Emoceans, Take Note and Earth School. Drummer Pat Campion and bassist Peter Bellm stepped in for Bienvenue (a French CD), Movinon and Chronology. Over the course of the past 30 years, the Dubay band has performed to more than 50,000 people.
With the band's new drummer, Mauro Iacoboni, they released a CD/DVD, simply entitled, "MANKIND", featuring 11 DuBay original songs on CD and a DVD which showcases 3 new videos and a 25 year sample of videos and TV performances. This latest album was released on Saturday May 16, at Stonewalls, in Hamilton and hosted by Michelle Dube of CTV News, Toronto. Always known for their live performance, DuBay performs a mix of original and classic rock cover songs. From Beatles to 5SOS, DuBay covers a six decades history of Rock music. The new album is a collaboration that speaks of Mankind, the species and the individual. With a sense of humour, DuBay presents the joys, hardships and technological wonders that are part of longer living today, all wrapped in an environmentally green message.
