Radio Daze Big Band | Italian Lights Festival Nashville, TN

Radio Daze Big Band

Radio Daze first appeared on the Nashville music scene in 1994 and quickly established itself as one of the city’s favorite dance bands. Boasting a 23-piece orchestra, complete with 4 vocalists, Radio Daze’s diverse repertoire captures the many sounds of almost every era of the 20th century, including the swing era of the 1930s and 40s, the non-stop fun of 50s pop, the smooth sounds of Motown, and the soul of disco!

You won’t want to miss grabbing a partner and swingin’ to “The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” doing the twist to — what else — “The Twist”, dancing the electric slide to “Mustang Sally” or funkin’ out to “Play that Funky Music White Boy.” If you need to slow down a bit, we’ll play a romantic tune just for you, such as “When I Fall in Love”, “Unforgettable” or “Let’s Stay Together.”

Radio Daze has enjoyed a busy calendar over the years, playing at a number of wedding receptions, as well as prestigious clubs and events, including The Gibson Guitar Showcase, the Franklin Jazz Festival, The Chattanooga Riverbend Festival and special gatherings at the Opryland Hotel and Vanderbilt Plaza. Always willing to be available to the community, Radio Daze also performs various charity events and summer swing dances organized by Nashville Metro Parks.
