An established Washington DC wedding tradition, Retrospect transforms any reception or party into a wonderful night to remember. As a nine-piece band, Retrospect always includes three vocalists (two female and one male) a three-piece rhythm section, and a three-piece horn section. The band continually raises the bar for event entertainment in Washington DC, suburban Maryland, Northern Virginia and throughout the entire mid-Atlantic region.

Weddings receptions are Retrospect’s specialty, recognized by Washingtonian Magazine and by as one of the area’s leaders in this field. The band’s enormous song list offers far more depth and variety than others, with music from six decades, ranging from 80s, 90s and Motown, to current dance and party music.

Retrospect is based in the Washington DC metropolitan area, but will travel anywhere in the continental United States to perform. Most performances are within 500 miles of Washington DC, from Connecticut to South Carolina.

Retrospect also performs for corporate events, conventions, holiday parties, reunions and charity fundraising events, as well as public concerts.

All bookings are arranged directly through the band leader, Larry Elliott. Retrospect is Washington DC’s original self-managed band, and is not available through any agency or other middleman. Pricing information can be viewed here.
