Ahoy there, Rollers – some rotten news, I’m afraid.
Escape From Turkey Sandwiches will NOT now take place on Thursday 30th December. Contact whoever you bought your tickets from to ensure you get a refund.
Sorry about that, you’ll just have to grin and bear it for another few weeks. Those sandwiches will need to get eaten after all. Or you could shovel the leftovers into a big roll… (see what I did there?)
You’ve all been so supportive this year, I look forward to repaying you with an EVEN BETTER gig in January or whenever it’s declared safe to return. We shall “rise again” as soon as it’s allowed!!
Meanwhile keep on rolling. Best wishes for a happy Christmas and New Year from me and the Big Roll Band.
A nice memory of Retro Festival 2021 – over 56 years since Zoot Money first shared a Ricky-Tick stage!

…Aaaaand… we’re back!!
A great time was had by all at the Long John Baldry Weekender this weekend (see photographs below), and now it’s on to Newbury in Berkshire this weekend for Retrofestival.
London and Home Counties Rollers, get your diaries out for September too – we’re back at the Bulls Head in Barnes with the Alan Price Band on Thursday the 6th, and with the Big Roll Band on Thursday the 30th.
Let’s sweep away those Covid blues and get the Big Times rolling again.
Zoot and Al are going to be on home turf in Bournemouth on Saturday 24th, doing a cheaper-than-chips lunchtime concert at St Peter’s Church. You’d be plain crazy to miss this one. Come and wish Zoot a happy birthday-plus-one-week. You could make a couple of happy men very old indeed.
Have you got your tickets yet? Well, have you?? What are you waiting for???
Yes, it is on, Rollers! Long John Baldry weekender festival starring yours truly and many more. Get your rock on and get down to the 1865 in Southampton to get a booster of what made those Sixties swing. Follow the link on the Gigs 2021 page here for tickets.
Your Roaring Twenties start here.
Here’s a glimpse of what you’ve all been missing these past few months – a taste of two stalwart Big Roll Band members when they were alive and rolling. Paul McCallum, a schoolfriend and my bass player for the last 20 years of his talented life, and Nick Newall – tenor player in all my Roll Band recordings, longest time friend (from my twenties!) Also featuring Glenn Nightingale on guitar and Jeff Allen on drums. A great night captured by video recordist William John Baker. Enjoy their abilities…with affection.
Due to a relentless onslaught by spammers, we have reluctantly and regretfully had to disable commenting on this website.
The good news is that you can still converse with Zoot on social media. Follow @bigtimeoperator on Twitter and @zootmoneymusic on Facebook to stay in touch with all the important stuff and to chat with Zoot and one another.
And if you’re a spammer, you are wasting your time. There is nothing for you here.
Quick heads up: tune into Erewash radio tonight between 7-9pm for an interview with Zoot on their Goldmine show!
Listen to Zoot’s previous interview on Not Your Mother’s Radio
Did you catch Zoot’s podcast interview in August with Eliot Goldstein of Not Your Mother’s Radio?
Great, wasn’t it?
Oh, you missed it? Never fear – it’s right here. So there’s no excuse not to be fully up to date by the time they return for a rematch on Nov 9.
