An independent band for weddings and parties

Based in the Washington DC area, Retrospect plays for wedding receptions, private parties, fundraisers, corporate events, galas and nightclubs.

Retrospect has performed at events throughout the mid-Atlantic region, from Connecticut to South Carolina, and is currently available for events nationally. With three lead singers and three horns, the band has the versatility to cover music of many genres. As the name Retrospect implies, we meld the best dance music from the last five decades of popular and dancing music.

All shows are custom-tailored to the needs of the event and the client. Performances may involve a wide variety of musical genres, or may focus on a tribute to one decade or one style. In addition, the band is constantly adding new material, and is happy to discuss learning special songs for your event.

Above all, hiring an independent band for your wedding or party means you will be able to work directly with the band leader, not through a booking agent or other middleman.

Bringing the energy to your party

Retrospect provides the ideal musical backdrop for any joyous occasion.  As the energy of the party builds, you and your guests will love being the focus of our audience-inclusive performance. There is always something for everyone to enjoy.
