“Sassy, Soul/Swing Sounds from the South”  



 With a voice husky as Amy Winehouse and distinctive as Dinah Washington, Runaway Retros’ charismatic vocalist, Colette Forde, blends together Sassy Soul and Retro Swing songs into a hugely entertaining set.

Together with other founder members, Dave Barry, Upright and Electric Bassist who drives the rhythm with passion and precision and John McGrath, Lead Guitarist who injects colours of Jazz, Soul, Blues and Rockabilly- the new Cork-based band interpret  lesser known Soul, Early Blues and Swing classics, making them their own.

Available as a trio, usually the band will operate as a quintet, utilising the talents of top drummer, Karl Downes and Sax maestro, Dan Corbett.
