We would like to thank RGM for making our party such a success. They really listened to what we were after and then produced music which surpassed our our expectations. They played wonderful jazz with our reception drinks and then got everyone dancing after supper. They are friendly and professional, prompt and efficient. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Audience feedback

Swanage RBL

April 2019

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 !!

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.

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.

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.

This is Us



Dariusz is a pure jazzer. With his seven-string guitar he produces sublime jazz chords and beautiful melodic lead lines.
With an unerring ear for what will fit perfectly into a space he creates a layer of harmonic interest which is transforming the RGM sound.
A modest musician, he lets his fingers do the talking…



Reg is a multi-instrumentalist specialising on the Hammond organ and other keyboards. With a background in Progressive Rock, and new to the Swing and Jazz genres, he is thriving under the new musical challenges that RGM are bringing to his musical world



Rupe has been playing music across a range of instruments and genres for most of his life.
A recent convert to bass, Rupe has found his instrumental home and drives RGM from the back of the band with his melodic style and musical energy.
With Paul, Rupe manages the RGM project to deliver an outstanding musical performance and customer experience


Sy has played , sometimes on drums, all over the world. At home on the biggest stages ( he unpacks his suitcase and hopes not to be moved on…) he brings a sophistication to RGM that has never been lacking !! 
However he makes up for this with a wonderful feel for the drums and keeps us chuckling with the driest sense of humour



With many years experience in Blues, RnB and Rock, Paul has embraced Jazz and Swing with a youthful vigour and enthusiasm that belies his years!!
A natural lead vocalist and entertainer, Paul imbues each song with a passion that transforms each note into a personal experience. He is totally driven to deliver an outstanding RGM performance at every gig
