Ricky Cool And The In Crowd

Red Hot Rhythm and Blues and Jamaican Grooves. Ricky Cool and the In Crowd play an explosive mix of original and classic rhythm and blues grooves from the 1950s and 60s. When it comes to planning our festival, Ricky Cool and the In Crowd is the first name to go into the book." Birmingham International Jazz and Blues Festival. Hes 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 Suckles Roaring Twenties, so much a part of early Mod culture. Their new album Flamingo Nights has 13 blistering examples of the bands 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. Were looking forward to playing The Half Moon. Its a long established venue with a reputation for presenting the best in live music. Itll be a great night.

Sage Francis & B.Dolan

Tickets on general Sale from 9am on Friday 26th May Dubbed as the forefather of indie-hop, Sage Francis originally earned acclaim in the early 2000s by winning the most highly coveted titles of the emcee battle circuit. Almost two decades after Francis graduated from bootlegging his own music in hand-to-hand mixtape distribution, he sits at the helm of one of hip-hop\'s premier independent labels; Strange Famous Records. Setting aside the more boastful side of rap, Francis quickly became recognized for the poetic leanings and scathing socio-political commentary in his lyrics. His debut album, Personal Journals, was heralded as both an artistic masterpiece and a genre game changer. The risks taken in his music and business approach, through the course of five plus commercial album releases, have helped Francis stay a few steps ahead of an ever-changing game. For the next project, Francis has teamed up with longtime friend and collaborator B. Dolan to form the super-duo Epic Beard Men. The EBM album will be released in early 2018, but in the meantime theyll be doing select international shows to test the new material.

Philip Pullman- La Belle Sauvage

Discover why Philip Pullman has returned to his wondrous realm in this exclusive London launch of the highly anticipated La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One. **** Please note; clicking "attending" on this page is considered not proof of purchase you will need to book a ticket through the link provided to reserve your place. We recommend you book now to avoid disappointment due to limited capacity...please contact The Southbank Centre directly with any questions**** Centring on the much-loved character, Lyra Belacqua, the new novel is set 10 years before Northern Lights, and delves deeper into the world of alethiometers, daemons and the Magisterium, while also introducing a host of new characters, including a new hero. In this evening, Pullman reflects on his writing process, what drew him back to Lyras world 22 years after Northern Lights was first published, and why the struggle for freedom of expression against despotic rulers that has been at the heart of his books, is more pressing now than ever. With totalitarian tendencies on the rise, what are the parallels with Lyras world and our own, and how can the substance of dust illuminate our present times? As Pullman himself comments: Why return to Lyras world? Dust. Questions about that mysterious and troubling substance were already causing strife 10 years before His Dark Materials, and at the centre of The Book of Dust is the struggle between a despotic and totalitarian organisation, which wants to stifle speculation and enquiry, and those who believe thought and speech should be free. The idea of Dust suffused His Dark Materials. Little by little through that story the idea of what Dust was became clearer and clearer, but I always wanted to return to it and discover more.
