ZOOT MONEY'S BIG ROLL BAND
25 Jul 2019
Cabbage Patch, Twickenham
Zoot Money has been a formidable contributor to the British music scene maintaining a career as a classic RnB singer and keyboard player.
He began his early career fusing RnB with jazz when he teamed up with guitarist Andy Summers (Police), tenor sax player Nick Newall and drummer Colin Allen to form The Big Roll Band, bringing a fresh sound to the RnB scene. Since his early days with Alexis Korner, Zoot has featured with The Animals and the Alan Price Band plus its offshoot, The Electric Blues Company. In recent years he's played in partnership with (amongst many others), Spencer Davis and the late Dick Heckstall-Smith, as well as Georgie Fame and Mick Taylor. Zoot's songwriting credits include songs for Lulu and Long John Baldry, as well as Jimmy Witherspoon (It Never Rains But It Pours). Zoot produced the Tutti Frutti album from the television series of the same name in 1985 - the show which launched the careers of Robbie Coltran and Emma Thompson. More recently, Zoot produced Ruby Turner's album, 'Call Me By My Name' and Woodstock Taylor's debut CD Road Movie.
Zoot has regularly been seen on our TV screens. In addition to many commercials, he has appeared in Eastenders, London’s Burning, The Bill, The Professionals, The Piglet Files and Get Back (the BBC series that featured Ray Winstone in his only sitcom).
Tonight's Big Roll Band line-up is Zoot Money on Hammond and Korg M 1 piano, Nick Payn on tenor sax, flute and harmonica, Ronnie Johnson on guitar, Jeff Allen on drums and Kenny Wilson on bass.
Zoot's huge talent continues to bring his own blend of experience and fun to entertain and amuse you and we are proud to be welcoming him to the Eel Pie Club. Advance: £16 (£14 Members). ALL TICKETS £19 CASH ON DOOR IF STILL AVAILABLE.
