Whether it’s a party for 2,000 guests, or a wedding reception for 100 guests, Retrospect® will customize the performance to fit any event. We have a proven record of continually raising the bar high for all event entertainment in the DMV metro region and well beyond.

You will be able to choose your music from our enormous song list, offering far more depth and variety than most others. Horn band classics form the core of our sound, but our expanded repertoire is sure to please all tastes in music.

Three amazing lead vocalists are always backed up by the same smokin’ hot horns and versatile rhythm section. Our singers and musicians always perform LIVE, never using any pre-recorded backgrounds, pre-recorded horns or substitutes for real musicians.

SO MANY TUNES, SO LITTLE TIME

Direct bookings only

Retrospect® is not available through any agency, consortium or other middleman. All booking is done directly through the band leader, Larry Elliott. We are Washington DC’s original self-managed band, and we are proud to continue that tradition today.

Although Retrospect is rumored to be one of DC’s most expensive wedding bands, that’s simply not true. One of the best wedding bands, yes, but still very affordable. We provide reasonably priced entertainment for parties, weddings, and most types of special events.

Our home base is the Washington DC, suburban Maryland and Northern Virginia area, but we can and do travel anywhere in the continental United States to perform. Most of our performances are in the mid-Atlantic region, ranging from Connecticut to South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia and North Carolina.

Retrospect® is available to play at all types of parties and events… conventions, weddings, holiday parties, reunions, charity fundraising events, nightclubs, public concerts, bachelor parties, boys and girls mitzvahs… any function a band would play for.
