Formed in 1964, The Big Roll Band were a popular attraction on the London R'n'B club scene where they had a residency at the Flamingo.

One of the great showmen of the time, Zoot loved dressing up and had the band photographed in a variety of costumes to promote their records. Their record sales were disappointing however, and Money disbanded the group in 1967.

Andy Summers went on to find fame as one third of The Police.
