Bob Kerr's Whoopee Band, also billed as Bob Kerr and His Whoopee Band, is a jazz band which started in 1967 and continues to perform today. It was an offshoot of the eclectic Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, and shared many similarities with other outfits of the time such as The New Vaudeville Band and The Temperance Seven. Kerr was a member of both the Bonzos and the New Vaudeville Band.

The band's publicity manager was originally Laurie Bamford the well-known Numismatist who died in 2005. Several former members formed Bill Posters Will Be Band in 1983. Current[when?] members of Bob Kerr's Whoopee Band are Bob Kerr, John "The Professor" Percival, Malcolm Sked, Bert Lamb and Henri Harrison.
