Big Town Playboys

Profile:
"Scintillating 40's and 50's West Coast Rhythm & Blues from the masters..."

Formed in '85 by Ricky Cool, Mike Sanchez, Ian Jennings and Andy Silvester.
Originally called Ricky Cool & The Big Town Playboys. However, the "Capital M" gig guide of April '88 refers to Ricky Cool and: "...the band he formed and has now left: The Big Town Playboys".

Early album featured Andy Silvester (until then known as a bassist, first and foremost with Chicken Shack) on excellent swinging lead guitar.
