The Dee Street Band is a Dunedin-based band who play original folk, blues, rock, and protest music, with the occasional sea shanty thrown in for good measure. They perform regularly at local festivals, bars and cafes around Dunedin.
The band first formed when Richard and Michelle Jackson lived on Doon Street in Dunedin. Dave Cox, the drummer, is also one of the original founding members. Bill Gilmore, keyboards, joined the band in early 2022. Kendall Henderson features regularly as a guest brass player and backing vocals. The band’s original songs reflect a life-long passion for social and environmental justice, living authentically and making a better world. In mid-2022, Richard’s brother Steve Wells (former member of well-known New Zealand band, Fur Patrol), offered to produce some of the band’s songs.
The songs are released periodically on SoundCloud.

A cèilidh is a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering. In its most basic form, it simply
means a social visit. In contemporary usage, it usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing, either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place.
