Friday 9th October – Ricky Cool and the In Crowd – £6/£5 adv, £16.95 with dinner
In his new line up, Ricky Cool and the In Crowd, Ricky Cool has teamed up with some of the Midlands top players in a six piece band presenting an explosive mixture of ska, bluebeat, rhythm and blues and rock ‘n’ roll, plus entertainment in the inimitable Ricky Cool style.
Their music is guaranteed to get your feet itching to dance. 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, the hottest band in town.
The bands music is rooted in the traditions of New Orleans, Texas, Chicago and the emerging Jamaican scene of the period. It is 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.
Dine’n Dance Fridays – two course dinner, reserved table £16.95, including admission.
Any two courses from this week’s set dinner menu.
