Retrospect is the band that has continually raised the bar for event entertainment in the Washington DC area. At every event and party, we use our three amazing vocalists and the same six versatile musicians backing them up. Our singers and musicians always perform LIVE, never using pre-recorded backgrounds or other substitutes for real musicians, as so many other bands do these days.

Retrospect is the most talked-about band in the Washington DC event industry because of our relentless consumer advocacy. Through our experience in the industry, we are privy to many of the secret tricks and traps that await unwary consumers of entertainment, and this website is the one reliable source of such information specific to the Washington DC area. The insights found in our entertainment shopping tips page are read and used well beyond the DC area.

When we perform, music is selected by you, the client, from our huge song list, with enormous depth and variety not found elsewhere.

The core of our sound is five decades of horn band classics, but there’s much more - music ranging from Motown, ‘80s and ‘90s through current dance and party music. Everything is played in its original style, but with our signature tweaks. See our song list page for the full list of over 400 songs, then link directly to more than 100 short mp3s of the band performing those songs.

All booking is done directly through our band leader, Larry Elliott. Email Larry@RetrospectBand.com Or call 301-438-2400.
