We recommend that you visit our good friends at Leura Cellars en route to Pigeon Lane @ Gallery One88, who provide an exquisite selection of wines, beer and spirits, including our locally brewed Mountain Culture.

Please read the event information at the bottom of this page very carefully, as you are required to select a vegetarian or non-vegetarian meal option when purchasing your tickets.

Abby Dobson was the singer and founding member of Leonardo’s Bride. Their hit classic ‘Even When I’m Sleeping’ garnered nationwide adoration and accolades; including winning APRA ‘Song of the Year’ and voted in the APRA ‘Top 20 Australian Songs of All Time’.

Abby went on to work with another platinum-selling artist, Paul Mac, on two of his albums and then co-founded her delicious French band, Baby et Lulu, who are due to release their exquisite third album imminently.

Abby will be playing her original songs from her two adored solo albums, ‘Rise Up’ and ‘It’s Okay, Sweetheart’…. (as well as that classic hit love song!) and telling stories about her life taking the scenic route.

“Abby Dobson is blessed with one of the most distinctive voices in Australian music — a smoky, intrinsically romantic instrument that she’s used to bewitch audiences over the years.” The Age, Melbourne

“A mega watt powerful voice which conjures melancholy, romance and sex, seemingly out of the ether.” The Independent, England
