About

The Dung Beatles are (above, from left to right) Phil Toler on bass/vocal, Mike Ashton on drums/percussion, Danny Prendergast on lead guitar/vocal and Steve Hillier on guitar/lead vocal.

In the words of Terry Bloxham, membership secretary of The British Beatles Fan Club “…The Dung Beatles are not your average Beatles tribute band…”. Although we always aim to dress smartly and uniformly, the overwhelming focus of our performance is on The Beatles music, rather than on the exact reproduction of their character performance, style and dress.

We are equally at home playing acoustic or electric sets, or a mixture of both, and the extent of the amazing Beatles catalogue means we can adapt to a range of tastes – pop, rhythm & blues, easy listening, or a variety of those styles. We love to perform a wide range of Beatles’ songs, including the well known hits, and also the less well known, but still brilliant, tracks from the mid to late sixties era albums such as “Rubber Soul”, “Revolver”, “Sgt Peppers…” and “Abbey Road”.

Following their leap to worldwide fame in 1963, in 1964 the Beatles went on to even greater things with the release of album “A Hard Day’s Night” and no less than four number one singles. The Beatles reign over the world of pop continued through to their break up in 1970, so this decade has a special significance for us as one long “50th anniversary” celebration of their music!

  1. Thank you all so much for playing at Brill Sports & Social club on December 7th. We all enjoyed it so much. You’ve got such a great approach to playing their music – you capture the essence of it without trying to carbon-copy it, and deliver it with such happiness and affection that can’t fail to rub off on the audience. Great sound and playing too – their material is a lot harder to play than people think, I know!
