THREE BONZOS AND A PIANO

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band fans will be delighted to learn that Roger Ruskin Spear, Rodney Slater and Sam Spoons have teamed up with super-pianist Dave Glasson to create more fun, music and subversive diversion in the spirit of the ageless band.

The Bonzos have appeared with members of Monty Python, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, The Kinks and The Who as well as having a Top 5 hit with Urban Spaceman. The musical missing link between The Goons and Monty Python, they featured as the house band on Do Not Adjust Your Set, a fore-runner of Monty Python, with Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Jones, as well as a young David Jason. Comedians Stephen Fry, Adrian Edmondson, Eddie Izzard, Chris Morris and Bill Bailey have all named the Bonzos as a formative influence.

For those who missed the recent (and possibly final) Bonzos re-union tour or wish to re-live those glorious times, Three Bonzos And A Piano will provide a very entertaining, life affirming 'hair of the dog'. Dadaism for the New Age delivered by the Old Sculptors of Surrealism - Vivian Stanshall's legacy is heartily celebrated.
