Details

Despite Three Bonzo’s & A Piano and Bill Posters Will Be Band deciding to call it a day at the end of 2014, several former members of both outfits decided to draw breath again to launch Bill Posters Band on the unsuspecting public. Thus two of the illustrious Bonzo’s, Roger Ruskin-Spear, reeds & vocals, and Sam Spoons, drums & spoons, have joined together with infamous ex-Bill Posters members, Mike (Megs) Etherington, cornet, vocals & assorted teapots, Chris Lowe, trombone, ukulele, percussion & vocals and Biff Harrison, banjo, accordion, saw & stravoli whilst bringing in an exciting new talent to the line-up in the form of Jim Heath, for many years a stalwart with Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra on banjo & guitar. Another ‘new boy’, keyboard ace David Glassan, the pianist in 3 Bonzo’s & A Piano and a former member of Bob Kerr’s Whoopee Band has also joined the new line-up. The band will be playing some of the Bonzo’s repertoire that we all love and some favourites that Bill Posters have become famous for, as well as new material to create an unusual musical slant on the wild and zany show that made both bands so popular over the years. “I have joined this new venture in the hope that at last we can make an impressive sound ……” says Roger Ruskin-Spear.
