Detroit's own Dig A Phony is fanatical about reproducing songs from The Beatles recording catalog - LIVE.


From the cowbell in “Drive My Car”, to the handclaps in “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”, to the kazoo sound in “Lovely Rita” (even though it was actually paper & combs), to the guitar fade out on “A Hard Day’s Night”– you will hear the song as it sounds on the album.


It’s a kind of "hybrid" approach to the whole Beatles tribute thing. We take the use of the accurate gear from the look-alike acts, and the sound-alike act’s freedom to play anything from the entire Beatles catalog and combine it all to deliver a purist’s production - a true tribute to the greatest pop music group of all time.


We hope you will enjoy the show…
