Dury Duty is a six-piece band dedicated to the songs and performance of legendary band leader and raconteur Ian Dury. This combo of experienced musicians strives to recreate the sound and feel of a genuine Ian Dury concert drawing from material found within his solo output, his work with The Kilburns, The Blockheads as well as other side projects.
Along with the expected big hitters such as ‘Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll’, ‘Reasons To be Cheerful (Pt.3)’, ‘Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick’, ‘What A Waste’ and others forming the backbone of any set, you will find lesser known but equally entertaining nuggets to whet the appetite of any long-time Ian Dury aficionado.
The band aim to not only entertain those familiar with the extensive cannon of this great performer and wordsmith but to bring new fans to the man. Ian Dury is sorely missed and his sharp, witty and often cutting observations on the mundane and absurd through his lyrics and poetic verse are carried forward by this talented band of brothers.
