For over 40 years the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, based in the UK, has delighted audiences all over the world with its mix of swing and hot dance music. The reputation of the orchestra is as legendary in its own right, as the bands from the 1920’s and 1930’s that inspired it. The orchestra was founded in 1969 by the master baker John Arthy, a fan of the 1920’s and 30’s dance band music. In an old attic, the bass and sousaphone player discovered more than 1000 forgotten arrangements of swing and dance tunes from the 1920's to the 1940's. In 1974 the first album was released and at the beginning of 1975 presented to the world music market at MIDEM in Cannes. The orchestra’s first tour followed. And the rest as they say is history... Over 40 recorded vinyl LPs, singles, CDs, and DVDs containing over 300 titles have been released since 1974. The timeless sound of the orchestra has led to ever more recordings and releases all over the world. Since 1984 the orchestra has its own record label Pasadena Records with a catalogue of 10 CD albums, 2 DVDs and a limited vinyl EP edition.
