The Muni | Saturday | 5:30pm
Ricky Cool and the In Crowd play an explosive mix of original and classic rhythm and blues grooves from the 1950s and 60s. The atmosphere they create is reminiscent of the ‘heady’ nights at the legendary Flamingo Club, in London’s West End, hosted by Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames, who were the hottest band in town.
The band’s music is rooted in the traditions of New Orleans, Texas, Chicago and the emerging Jamaican scene of the period. It’s delivered with style and passion by some of the Midlands top musicians, fronted by the charismatic Ricky Cool, long regarded as one of the most entertaining front men in the business.
”This is not a nostalgia trip. The music they play is as relevant and exciting today as it ever was!”
