Whoopee Records was a DIY label. Dedicated to the releases of Bob Kerr's Whoopee Band - an eccentric Trad Jazz ensemble - and its offshoots.  Whoopee started life in 1976; it was more of an album label than a singles one, but it released at least two singles, 'Tap Dance Man' (WP-100 S; 5/79) and 'Remember Remember' (WP-106 S; 10/81), and thus qualified for inclusion on this site.  It continued to issue the occasional LP and CD up to 1995, and will presumably last as long as the band does.  Distribution in 1979 was by JSU.  Singles and albums shared a WP-100 numerical series, the singles having an 'S' suffix, the albums an 'LP' one. Pressing was by Lyntone. 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. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
