Ricky Cool and the In Crowd

He’s been in the music business for over 40 years, played with the likes of Billy Connolly, shared a stage with George Harrison and played in the same band as Robert Plant. And now, with his 6 piece band The In Crowd, Ricky Cool is bringing his own inimitable music to The Half Moon.

Midlands based Ricky Cool has fronted bands that have been very popular in London, including The Icebergs, and The Rialtos. He also co-founded The Big Town Playboys, the band that bought the talents of Mike Sanchez to Worldwide attention.

His latest incarnation, Ricky Cool and the In Crowd, has built up a large following, in the Midlands and following many successful festival appearances such as The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival, Lancashire, Blues On The Farm, Sussex, The Jazz and Big Band Festival, Derry, Ricky and the band are looking to spread their musical message to new areas and venues.

He said, “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.”

The band plays a variety of musical styles under the banner of rhythm and blues. Original numbers and early Jamaican grooves are mixed in with the American to recreate the style that was synonymous with clubs such as The Flamingo and Count Suckle’s Roaring Twenties, so much a part of early Mod culture. Their new album ‘Flamingo Nights’ has 13 blistering examples of the band’s music and the title track plays homage to the famous Flamingo Club and the legendary all night sessions that were held there..

Ricky continued, “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. We’re looking forward to playing The Half Moon. It’s a long established venue with a reputation for presenting the best in live music. It’ll be a great night.”
