About this Act

Radio Days offers choir of four eras:

- Edwardian songs (ideal for a Downton Abbey Themed Wedding or Edwardian Event). Singer with piano or with backings.

- Songs from the Times of WW1. Commemoration Events, Military Events. Singer with either piano or backings.

- Roaring 1920s, the best of the jazz era. With a 5 piece band, or singer with special backings: singing over old 78 rpm recordings. Something you have to see...

- Glamorous 1930s, relieve the Hollywood era with a 5 piece band, or singer with backings. All in costume.

Your event and how the music that goes in it is organised is of great importance to the band. On the one hand they provide a very unique kind of music but also joyful entertainment with all the elegance and glamour of the jazz age. Your guests will clearly find the music both familiar and entertaining as they share with you their love for the history and music of the 1920s and 1930s from Europe and the Americas, as well as the Edwardian period.
