The Dubious Bros. play party music and listening music. We have good variety of favourite old covers (Dubious Classics) as well as an excellent selection of songs written by the band. We play for birthdays, weddings, in pubs and for parties. We have played for Malmesbury Mayoral Celebrations and are well known for our local fundraisers for Oxfam, Medicen sans Frontiers, The Disaster Emergency Committee, British Heart Foundation, Malmesbury River Valleys Trust, Clowns sans Frontiers, etc.

We are possibly Malmesbury's second oldest band, having had our first gig in 1989.


The band's prices are reasonable, but it is essential to book well in advance.
