“Highgate Has Heart” Charity Winter Party and refugee appeal celebrity auction featuring Ruby Wax and Juliet Stevenson 4th Feb 2017
“Thank you sooooo much for a fabulous evening and for playing later than planned – until we had to be ‘turned off’! It was a truly fabulous night and you guys really went down a storm, rounding off a great event. Despite starting at 7pm we were amazed that so many were still rocking at 1am! All down to The Dung Beatles!
Trish Ferguson – organiser

“You and the guys were absolutely brilliant. We could not have had a more perfect and professional presentation than your fantastic set – your whole administration, set up, and of course, performance were second to none (well maybe second to the original band perhaps). We have had so many rave reviews. Thank you for contributing to a very successful and enjoyable event. AND thank you for playing “Dr Robert” when I shouted it out as a last request.”

The Elgiva Theatre 17th Sep 2016 – A Special Tribute to Sir George Martin
“A full house at The Elgiva and an evening of over 50 Beatles classics played the way they were intended – it doesn’t get much better! The Dung Beatles had the sell-out audience singing and dancing for over 2 hours including a couple of encores. The guys were a pleasure work with and we’re looking forward to having them back in October 2017”
Mark Barnes – Elgiva Theatre Manager

Music In The Park, Thame, 1st May 2016

awesome. My husband, who is a big Beatles fan, said you nailed it on
every song. He couldn’t stop talking about how good you guys were”

Michele Pethers, Crash Records (Organiser of MITP 2016 –

“The harmonies and jangling guitars are spot on…I particularly admire the fact that The Dung Beatles make no attempt to look like their heroes”
“The Thamensian”, Thame Gazette online

Waterside Second Space 24th Oct’15
“A band at the Waterside Theatre took Beatles fans on the fastest and most hectic time trip imaginable as they ripped through the history of the world’s greatest pop group. Tribute foursome the Dung Beatles took the Aylesbury venue’s Second Space by storm to dash off around 45 songs in a two and a half hour gig that gave new meaning to value for money. Taking a leaf out of their heroes’ book, the Dung Beatles worked their socks off in an almost non-stop succession of numbers that covered the original band’s dizzying collection of hits from 1963-70. They deserve the highest praise for not only offering a faithful rendition of the Beatles’ hits (many of which are incredibly hard to play and sing live) but a tantalising insight of what it would have been like to actually hear the music live in its day. Standout action featured a triumphant medley from Abbey Road and a stunning rendition of A Day In The Life, while a horn trio added colour and authenticity. There’ll only be one original Fab Four but there’s only really one creditable tribute band and that’s the Dung Beatles. As Carly Simon sang, nobody does it better…”

“Trinity Hall June Event 2015”, Trinity Hall College, Cambridge, 17th June
“Trinity Hall June Event 2015 is the highest capacitated event held by any college across the city of Cambridge. This year, we held host to the likes of Annie Mac, The Correspondents and our personal favourites The Dung Beatles. Hosting a theme of ‘Marmalade Skies’ and portraying all things sixties, this band was a perfect end to the night. The main stage was busy all night, but only became absolutely full at 2-3am when The Dung Beatles performed to over one thousand people. Since the event finished I’ve heard from many people that The Dung Beatles were the musical highlight of their nights. For a six hour event taking a year’s planning, that’s quite a feat, and I’m personally glad The Dung Beatles were there to make my night too. Not only did they perform well, but they were organised all year in helping set up for the event, arrived ten hours before their set on the day to sound check and then continued to smash their set. Well done guys, and on behalf of our committee and one thousand attendees, thanks for playing.”
Xavier Jameson – The Trinity Hall June Event 2015 Committee

Royal British Legion, Holmer Green, 30th May 2015
“Thank you so much for an excellent evening at the Legion last night, You make my job of booking entertainment so worthwhile! From the minute you arrived we knew we were in for a great evening of entertainment. When you have a close group of guys who really enjoy working together it really shows how professional your group have become, everybody who came last night will be talking about the ‘Dung Beatles’ for weeks. And I cannot praise you enough for being so professional and for being really nice guys in everything you did for us last night.”
Simon – event organiser

March 2013 Rivets Social Club Aylesbury

“The Dung Beatles gave everyone there a truly great evening. They played many of the Beatles classics. The dance floor was crowded and it was a real party atmosphere.”
Review from Rivets club website

March 2013 Limelight Theatre Aylesbury

“I have seen a few tribute bands in my day but I admit that the Dung Beatles really did impress me! First of all, let me say that the Dung Beatles are not your average Beatles tribute band – no costumes, no wigs (well, the bass player was sporting one) and they didn’t play just the most well-known Beatles songs. Musically, that was so nice and refreshing. This is a band that plays Beatles songs because they like, no, LOVE, Beatles songs – no gimmicks, no tricks – just pure, unadulterated fun.”
Terry Bloxham – Secretary – British Beatles Fan Club
