ABOUT US

Love PMJ and Electro Swing!?

We are a fun, lively band with complete brass section playing covers of well known pop songs rewritten with a vintage swing twist!

Transforming modern pop hits into sounds of retro jazz, ragtime and swing classics of the 1920s through 1960s!

Offering fun and different entertainment to your event!

Available for parties, weddings, corporate events, vintage fairs, festivals and more.

The Retrobates can also offer a more laid back set suited to dinner entertainment or drinks receptions.

We also offer a package with an optional fantastic, vintage Dance couple to add the extra wow element to your event offering additional dance demos and lessons if required during our set.

We *love* working with these guys and having them play at Red & Ginger's Hot Club. They're hugely in demand and dancers love them. Don't miss them!
