Ricky Cool and the In Crowd
Venue: Lichfield Guildhall
Friday 02 October 2020: 8.00pm
The last time the charismatic, grooving, moving, jazz, ska reggae machine Ricky Cool and the In-Crowd played at the guildhall they blow the roof off, so when we had the chance to see them again, we just had to book them.
Take a shuffle and a shimmy back in time to the early 1960’s and Soho’s most famous music venue, in the company of Ricky Cool and The In Crowd. Be prepared to enjoy Red Hot Rhythm and Blues and a side order of classic early Jamaican grooves that’ll guarantee to have your feet itching to dance. The Flamingo was the home of the burgeoning Mod scene of the time, where Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames held sway and Hipsters with their Chicksters danced the night away.
As Ricky says, “The band members are all top class musicians with fearsome pedigrees, working with artists that include Ruby Turner, The Beat, Alexis Korner, X Ray Spex and Fine Young Cannibals. The music we play is timeless and the show is wild and wacky by anyone’s standards. The band’s often nutty brand of enthusiasm is contagious, so much so that the audience get to feel that they are part of the show.”
