However, his appearance will follow Raphael Saadiq who portrays Sam Cooke singing ‘We’re Having a Party’ and Colbie Caillat playing Lesley Gore performing ‘It’s My Party’

‘The Playboy Club’ is set in 1963 in Chicago and is working on finding singers to portray James Brown and Roy Orbison in upcoming episodes. Another future target is Frank Sinatra.
