After playing in several bands and touring Switzerland, France and Germany, as well as working as a session drummer at Munich’s legendary Musicland Studios, Danny moved to London in 1984 and never looked back.
With a musical legacy that covers three decades of rockn’n’roll history, Danny has played in several well known bands, such as Rogue Male, Lords of the New Church, Kill City Dragons, Vain, Dogs D’amour and Sham 69 amongst others.
During his time spent travelling and touring the world, he began to write about his life experiences and these songs became the reason for a role change in 1998, from drummer to fronting his own band WILD AT HEART.
In early 2010, Danny Fury moved back to London and started the Rock Band TANGO PIRATES in early 2011. The Band is meant to keep up the vision and attitude which Danny shared with Stiv Bators in The Lords of the New Church.
To complete the perfect line up, he enlisted the help of former band colleague Dave Tregunna (Sham 69, Lords of the New Church, Kill City Dragons etc.) as well as his friends Timo Kaltio on lead guitar, Vera Wild on bass, and Steve Grainger on drums. he was a year and a half later replaced by Seb Frey.
After having played numerous gigs in the UK, a tour in Scandinavia, after having recorded the EP Back On Track as well as filmed a video to the song Monster in my DNA, this first line up ran it’s course. The split was mostly down to band members taking on too many other projects. This was in contrast with Danny’s own complete commitment and restricted band activities severely.
It was during this time that Danny recorded the follow up EP to Back On Track, with Vera Wild and other friends. The EP was named In Transition.
A new partner was found in Jack Flint in late 2014 and the new line up played it’s first show as Danny Fury’s Tango Pirates on Dec 12th that year.
Danny released In Transition in February 2015 and went to work with Jack and Dave Tregunna (guesting on bass) recording the 3rd EP <Danger ! Children at play> which will be released in early 2016.
The band is currently working on a video and playing shows around the UK. We’re looking for a professional booking agency to book us gigs in Europe.
