Radio Pachuco began its musical life as a classic swing and jazz band. However, influences of the 1950’s, classic film themes and current music began to inspire the band. Combining their love of old and new music, Radio Pachuco offered 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 in their own personal nostalgia. ”
Inspired by the internet sensation Postmodern-jukebox, Radio Pachuco have both covered and arranged a large number of modern songs in vintage swing style. The popularity of this “modern-swing” has seen the band perform at the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh International Conference Centre and as the house band for the premier of Hyena at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Their 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, the unlikely swing covers of a cheesy 90s favourite!
