Royal Crown Revue, the reigning kings of all that is sartorially and otherwise splendid in classic American music has pioneered a totally unique sound and style, serving as the blueprint for an entire generation of musicians and music lovers. This band exploded from the underground scene into bona fide cultural phenomenon.
Since exploding out of L.A.'s underground scene in 1989, Royal Crown Revue's unique combination of swing, jump, jive and jazz has yielded a dream career in the music industry. Behind the timeless voice of Eddie Nichols, RCR has performed in many of the world's most prestigious venues, from the Hollywood Bowl to Radio City Music Hall. RCR has also worked with a stunning variety of top artists - from James Brown to Bette Midler to Gene Simmons. RCR also served as inspiration for the hit movie Swingers, which brought the new music, dance and fashion ground swell to a larger public. And the band's music - in particular the breakout track "Hey Pachuco!" - was featured in the Jim Carrey movie The Mask.
