Salmonella Dub are a Dub/Drum n Bass/Reggae/Roots band from Kaikoura, New Zealand. They were formed in 1991 by Andrew Penman, David Deakins and Mark Tyler. The band has toured extensively New Zealand, Australia, Europe including the UK and Ireland. Formed in 1991 in Christchurch NZ, Salmonella Dub have rightfully been called the pioneers and originators of a unique Pacific style of Dub/Drum ‘n’Bass/Reggae/Hip Hop and Groove based Rock. Acts such as Fat Freddy’s Drop, Shapeshifter, Cornerstone Roots, Kora, and Trinity Roots as well as the new wave of Australian acts like Budspells, Rastawookie, King Tide, Red Eyes, and the likes, can all thank Salmonella Dub for paving the way to opening Australian ears to an alternative to a music scene that was largely house influenced dance music or straight guitar rock.

The group worked for some time with MC Tiki Taane, who embarked on a solo career in 2007 after developing a profile with the band. Other guest or collaborative artists have included Paddy Free who produced the most recent album release Freak Controller and performed with the band; and guests Whirimako Black, Hirini Melbourne, Richard Nunns and MC Mana. The band has also collaborated with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Hamish McKietch.

Recent touring entourage includes: Peter Wood, Anthony Smith, Jason Young (audio) & JoFF Rae; guest performers Paul Buchanan (the Mighty Asterix), Michelle Harrison & MC Mana.
