Bill Posters Will Be Band was a comic musical group formed by musicians who were members of The Bonzo Dog Band and Bob Kerr's Whoopee Band. The band was formed in 1983 by Biff Harrison, Jim "Golden Boots" Chambers, Evil John Gieves Watson, Sam Spoons, Hugh Crozier and Roger Ruskin Spear.

They regularly performed at the renowned jazz venue The Bull's Head at Barnes in South West London. The final line-up featured Chambers, Harrison, Watson, Spoons, Peter Shade and Megs Etherington. Occasionally "special guests" were allowed onstage, notably Master Ruxton Hayward, who was the inspiration for the character Bluebottle in the hugely influential British radio series The Goon Show.

Their final outing was on 28 December 2014.
