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.
He said: “The band members are all top class musicians with fearsome pedigrees. The music we play is timeless and the show is wild and wacky by anyone’s standards. The band’s often nutty brand of enthusiasm is contagious.”
Doors open at 8pm for an 8.30pm start.
Tickets are priced £11 (£10 concessions) and are available at www.becclespublichall.co.uk, 01502 770060 or by visiting the box office open from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 3pm.
■ The new Hall programme is also now available and will include a night of professional wrestling, Patsy Cline and Friends and a production of Quadrophenia.
There are also plenty of films on showing, a gardeners forum, a pop up piano bar and the Beccles Young Vocalist and Beccles Young Musician of the Year competition presented by the Rotary Club of Beccles, which takes place on February 12.
There will also be half term fun with the Science Boffins for children of primary school age.
