Red Hot Rhythm and Blues! Scintillating Ska and Bluebeat! Senational Soul! Ricky Cool and the In Crowd serve up a gorgeous gumbo of sounds, similar to those found in the clubs of Soho in the early years of Mod mania. Original numbers are mixed in with great arrangements of classics to give you a musical mix that will have your feet itching to dance.
Many will remember Ricky Cool fronting one of Birmingham’s most popular combos, the legendary Ricky Cool and the Icebergs. Ricky has toured with the likes of Billy Connolly, shared a stage with George Harrison and played alongside Robert Plant. He is recognised as one of the most entertaining front men in the business.
The band members are all top class musicians with excellent pedigrees, who have worked with artists including Ruby Turner, The Beat, Alexis Korner, X Ray Spex and Fine Young Cannibals.
As Ricky says, “The music we play is timeless and our show is enjoyed by young and old alike. The enjoyment we have on stage rubs off on our audience and a great time is had by one and all.”
