Radio Pachuco originally began life as a classic swing and jazz band. However, influences from the 1950’s, classic film themes and more modern styles increasingly began to influence us. Uniquely combining classic and newer tunes, Radio Pachuco offers up “pop-swing” by remastering modern favourites into vintage style tunes which sit happily alongside jazz standards. Old and young find themselves dancing the night away, embracing their own personal nostalgia.
Inspired by the internet sensation Postmodern Jukebox, Radio Pachuco have now created covers and new arrangements of a large number of modern songs using a vintage swing style. The popularity of this “modern-swing” has seen the band perform at a wide variety of locations including Gleneagles, the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, Edinburgh International Conference Centre and as the house band for the premier of Hyena at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Each lively set has something for everyone to enjoy – whether you are looking for the classics of Benny Goodman, the guitar solos of Chuck Berry or perhaps, a unique swing cover of a cheesy 90s favourite!
