Bio / info
The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band (also known as The Bonzo Dog Band, The Bonzo Dog Dada Band and, colloquially, as "The Bonzos") are a band created by a group of British art-school denizens of the 1960s. Combining elements of music hall, trad jazz, psychedelic rock, and avant-garde art, the Bonzos came to the attention of a broader British public through a children's television program, Do Not Adjust Your Set. The core members of the group for most of the band's career were: Vivian Stanshall (trumpet, lead vocals), Neil Innes (piano, guitar, lead vocals), Rodney "Rhino" Desborough Slater (saxophone), Roger Ruskin Spear (tenor sax, various contraptions), and "Legs" Larry Smith (drums). However, the band's onstage line-up varied, sometimes on a weekly basis, and they also invited a number of guest musicians into the recording studio.
