Take a shimmy and a shuffle back in time to the early 1960s in the company of Ricky Cool and the In Crowd, as they bring the music of Soho’s most legendary venue to Beccles Public Hall.
The band are performing at the hall on Saturday, February 11, with support from DJ and dance instructor DJ The Muffin Man of Jivebunnies, who will be specialising in R&B and early northern soul popcorn.
Ricky has toured with the likes of Billy Connolly, shared a stage with George Harrison and played alongside Robert Plant.
Not to mention fronting one of Birmingham’s most popular combos, the legendary Ricky Cool and the Icebergs.
Now, with his six piece band The In Crowd, Ricky is set to deliver his own inimitable take on 60s rhythm and blues and ska to a whole new audience.
