almost THE BONZO DOG DOO DAH BAND

Five original members of legendary sixties group reform for one night only to celebrate 50 years of musical madness. Three Bonzos & A Piano have been touring the UK to packed houses and critical acclaim with their re-creation of the chaos involved in a madcap Bonzo’s show. As the name suggests the group consists of original members Sam Spoons, Roger Ruskin Spear and Rodney Slater together with their piano playing chum Dave Glasson.

For this spectacular climax to their anniversary year they have persuaded two more original Bonzos- “Legs” Larry Smith and Vernon Dudley Bohay Nowell – to join the party. There will be a host of old favourites such as – The Monster Mash, Hunting Tigers Out In Indiah, My Pink Half Of The Drainpipe, Can Blue Men Sing The Whites, Look At Me I’m Wonderful, plus some very special surprises as the guys demonstrate why they are acclaimed as the “musical missing link between Monty Python, The Goons and Music Hall”. Come along and marvel at the joy with which a host of old props and costumes are deployed to support even older gags. Tickets: £14 Advance, £16 On The Door.

Our last show with the Bonzos was a sell-out so book early to avoid disappointment.
