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, etc.

We are possibly Malmesbury's second oldest band and rapidly approaching a 30th birthday in 2019.


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

We are: Paul Darby, at the middle back, the main singer who plays an old Levin acoustic guitar, Roger Smith rear right, also sings and plays wonderful bass guitar. David Charles, seated left, former local MD (our Witchdoctor), sings, plays guitars and saxophones. Our newest member, Felix Byrne, standing left, plays drums. He also sings, acts and tap dances, though not with us yet. Art Robb, seated right, plays harmonica and keyboards and has supplied tea bags to the band since 1989. The band rehearses in Art's living room on Gloucester Road in Malmesbury - dancing in the street is encouraged. All members have written songs and the band plays and has recorded many written by David and Roger.

We have a new singer, Jacki Byrne. She's a wonderful vocalist and a lovely person. We are all really pleased to have her join us.
