2019 is turning out to be an historic year for The Dung Beatles! The band recently performed an exclusive show to celebrate fifty years of the Friars Club Aylesbury at The 1200 seat Waterside Theatre, on 26th September, also the date on which The Beatles’ ground breaking album “Abbey Road” was launched fifty years ago! Playing to a packed theatre, joined by their brilliant four piece horn section and the amazing Ruby Lewis singing “Oh Darling!”, the band performed the entire Abbey Road album in the first set, then stunned the audience again in the second set with dazzling renditions of songs from the other classic albums. Secretary of The British Beatles Fan Club Terry Bloxham said “You all were the best I have heard you to date. Congratulations for a spectacular gig!”. David Stopps, the founder of the Friars Club Aylesbury, who was responsible for booking some of the world’s most famous acts including David Bowie (three times), Pink Floyd, Genesis and The Police (to name only a few!) described us as “the best Beatles tribute band in the world”!!! David had booked us on the strength of our performance the previous year to a full house at the Waterside, hosting the David Bowie “Earthly Messenger” memorial concert, along with Friars Heroes Howard Jones, John Otway and Marillion, after which Terry Bloxham commented “What a fantastic concert! You were easily the best act”. She also describes us as “not your average Beatles tribute band” meaning we do not copy the Beatles dress presentation, rather we focus mainly on performing faithful renditions of their music, especially the later hits and album tracks never performed live by The Beatles.
In August 2019 the band performed on the main stage “Venue 65” at Towersey Festival, on the same bill as many acclaimed UK artists such as Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, The Selecter, Hothouse Flowers, Fisherman’s Friends, Seth Lakeman and The Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain.
