Radio Pachuco came into being in 2011 as the house band for Saturnalia cabaret, an ill-fated production involving some of Scotland's great performers. As such they had to provide the background music for burlesque acts, feats of hypnosis and even a fakir hammering a nail into his head. Certainly not a squeamish band. As time has passed Radio Pachuco have become a tight 6-piece ensemble, playing a mix of swing classics, jazz numbers and songs of the 1950's. Shying away from tired crooner material, their cool and fast-paced performance is a mix between Cole Porter and Etta James, and singer Sophie Adams' voice will make you want to rummage through your grandparents' record collection.
