Zoot Money's
Big Roll Band

Fondly remembered by those of us of a certain age for 60's gigs at the Flamingo Club in Soho and Klooks Kleek, tonight we are priviledged to host the legendary Zoot Money. At school Zoot played the French horn and sang in the choir, life changed when he discovered Jerry Lee Lewis and Ray Charles, took up keyboard and, by the beginning of the 1960s, Hammond organ. In 1961 he formed the Big Roll Band playing soul, jazz and R&B. Famed far and wide for his combination of outrageous antics (including "shocking" trouser activity that predated PJ Proby by several years), tight musicianship and passionate vocal delivery. Zoot's countless musical associations include Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, Georgie Fame, Alan Price, Ruby Turner, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Steve Marriott & Ronnie Lane, Peter Green and Eric Burdon.
