Definitely not your average Beatles band

Hailed by The British Beatles Fan Club as “definitely not your average Beatles band”, the band has earned high praise for its authentic musical renditions and close-harmony vocals.

Based in Buckinghamshire, The Dung Beatles got together in 2013, with Danny Prendergast on lead guitar and vocal, Mike Ashton on drums, Steve Hillier on rhythm guitar and lead vocal, and Phil Toler on bass and vocals. Martin Kent joined in 2017 on keyboards.

Big fans themselves, the band performs a wide mix of classic hits and more obscure album tracks from every year of the Beatles' commercial success.

Previous highlights include playing live on Mike Naylor's BBC 3 Counties Radio show, gigging at The Cavern in Liverpool, and performing to over one thousand students at the Trinity Hall College Cambridge "Maramalade Skies" event on the same bill as Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac. The band is now achieving sell out concerts at theatres and clubs in London and counties westward.

In 2018 they performed to a full house at The Waterside Theatre Aylesbury, along with pop legends John Otway, Howard Jones and Marillion, in support of the Friars Club tribute to David Bowie and 2019 sees the band returning to the Waterside as headliners themselves performing the entire Abbey Road album to mark the 50th Anniversary of the album's release.
