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…

Drop me a line…

Unfortunately due to current events, the band has decided it would be best to avoid involvement in public gatherings and will not be performing this season.


We hope to be back in 2021.


Peace & love.
