Ricky Cool & the In Crowd: A Night at the Flamingo

Source https://macbirmingham.co.uk/event/ricky-cool-the-in-crowd

Take a trip back in time to the early 1960’s and Soho’s most iconic music venue, in the company of Ricky Cool and the In Crowd. Be prepared to enjoy Red Hot Rhythm and Blues and a side order of classic early Jamaican grooves at Wardour Street’s world-famous Flamingo ‘All Nighters’ where Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames held sway and Hipsters with their Chicksters danced the night away.

The Flamingo was the home of the burgeoning Mod scene of the time, and boasted a cosmopolitan clientele where American GIs and West Indian expatriates would rub shoulders with pop stars, actors, socialites, as well as celebrity gangsters and prostitutes. It was THE place to go to be seen and it played no small part in the biggest political scandal of the 1960’s – The Profumo Affair.
