Featuring original members – Neil Innes, Rodney Slater, Vernon Dudley Bohay- Nowel, Sam Spoons & Bob Kerr
The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band are back and this time they have 50 years to celebrate. This is a rare opportunity to see Neil Innes re-united with his former Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band mates- Rodney Slater, Sam Spoons, Vernon Dudley Bowhay Nowell, ‘Legs’ Larry Smith and Bob Kerr – performing all the hits including Jollity Farm, Urban Spaceman, Mr Slater’s Parrot and many more.
This musical extravaganza will see the Bonzos joined live on stage by The Rutles, featuring Elliot Randall of Steely Dan fame on guitar performing their own pre-fab four masterpieces including OUCH!, I Must Be In Love, Cheese and Onions, Piggy and more.
The spirit of late Vivian Stanshall is represented by the larger than life Michael Livesley who performs the Master of Ceremonies role and David Caitlin Birch who performs the vocal high wire routine that is ‘Rhinocratic Oaths’.
Tea bags will be thrown during this spectacular night of British musical comedy mayhem!
