CC doing what she does best - nailing a classic !!
Who doesn't love a bit of Louis Prima !! Add a touch of David Lee Roth and the RGM feel....
Usually performed with Fly Me To The Moon and Walking On The Moon as part of the Moon trilogy - enjoy a taster!!
Patsy Cline meets The Lovin' Spoonful - all swung up for a great dance song... a bit bonkers but it works well !!
The Kinks' classic given a bit of RGM swing...
" I booked RGM for a surprise 70th Birthday party...had to be postponed...flexible and understanding when we had to change the date. The band were professional and helpful from day one. On the night they created a wonderful atmosphere and managed to get non-dancers on the floor letting their hair down. They have a great bond between them which exudes and rubs off on the guests.
As an event managerfor over 30 years I have seen many bands and the musical professionalism and atmosphere of RGM has to come in my top 10 !!

"The Retro Groove Mob created a fantastic atmosphere and delivered great entertainment for our New Years Eve party...dancing and singing all night long....best New Years Eve party in years."
George Pitcher, Owner, Bankes Arms Hotel, Corfe Castle
"Retro Groove Mob are fantastic. Their great sense of fun and wonderful musicianship got the party started till way past my bedtime. Everybody wants to see them ( and more importantly hear them ) again."
Andy Bell, Organiser, Scolestock 2017 and 2018
"On a cold dark November evening, many members of the Corfe Castle Club turned out to see Retro Groove Mob, many for the first time . Everyone was delighted as RGM put on an exciting musical show and we are thrilled that RGM are returning to perform again this summer."
Chris Aylward, Club Events Organiser
"We loved having RGM share our special day. They were enjoyed by young and old ranging from 8 to 80!! They played a wonderful repertoire of their versions of well-loved songs, from Fly Me To The Moon to All About That Bass. We would do it all again in a flash."
