Prepare to be entertained! BONZO BILLS is a brand new band formed of former members of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and the Bill Posters Will Be Band.

Two of the illustrious Bonzos, Roger Ruskin-Spear (reeds and vocals) and Sam Spoons (drums, spoons and vocals) have joined up with ex-Bill Posters band members Megs Etherington, (cornet and teapots), Chris Lowe (trombone and ukulele) and Biff Harrison (banjo, accordion, saw and stravoli). As well as this, bringing exciting new talent to the line-up is Jim Heath on banjo and guitar, for many years a stalwart with ‘Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra’. Completing the line-up is another new boy, keyboard ace David Glasson, pianist from ‘Three Bonzos & A Piano’ and former member of Bob Kerr’s ‘Whoopee Band’.

The band will be playing classic songs from the Bonzos repertoire, popular favourites from the Bill Posters back catalogue, and brand new material to create an exciting musical slant on the wild and zany shows that made both bands so popular over the years.
