Sounds of Urlich


Kiwi music veteran Peter Urlich – who has relocated to the Wakatipu for winter – plays his first local gig next week.

Urlich, credited as a driving force of contemporary club culture in New Zealand, headlines a gig at Bunker on Tuesday.

It’s expected to start from about 10pm with Urlich playing after 11pm. Mountain Scene last week revealed Urlich, former vocalist with Dave Dobbyn’s hit Kiwi band Th’Dudes, had moved from Auckland for the ski season and he’d “see what musical adventures I can get into”. 

Of his Bunker gig, Urlich says: “I’ll be starting off fairly eclectic and then get some nice, funky ‘nice ‘n’ Urlich’ house music.”
