Great music that kept our guests dancing
We knew we wanted live music for our wedding reception, and we couldn't have asked for a better band than Retro Jukebox Band. We had some electricity and noise level constraints at our venue, but they were so accommodating and willing to work with us to ensure that we still had amazing music. They even threw in a few last minute requests from the audience that required a little bit of improvisation, but everyone loved it!Sent on 08/23/2019

Our wedding reception was a record breaking 110 degrees. Most of our vendors were grumpy, but the Retro Jukebox Band was the glue that held everything together. We had so many compliments of how great Geetchi was as an MC, Musician, and DJ. Very transparent (and affordable) pricing, very organized/professional, and above all else - friendly!!! I can't thank them enough for being the highlight of our reception.Sent on 11/18/2017

To everyone (especially fathers of the bride) planning a wedding please heed my advice here. There are three core requirements in selecting a band for a wedding. Our daughter was married just this past Saturday (our first) and we had Geechi and the Retro Jukebox band play at the event. It was a stunning, over the top success and the Jukebox team was at the core of it! This was an especially challenging affair for a band. It was an outdoor venue in Capitola overlooking the Monterrey Bay at the Monarch Cove Inn. The venue doesn't allow amplification, and you've got the breeze, trees and the sea as background sound effects. Anyone that knows music, knows it takes real talent to sound great without amplification in an open air environment. It was an awesome affair and the band was great. There were three keys to the successful outcome with regard to the musical requirements of a wedding.Sent on 07/20/2017
1. Sound: The band has to be great. These guys were great. Without amplification we had the place jumping with killer R&B, Jazz & Rock and Roll. The dance floor was a crowded ball of fun that included the entire cross section of attendance from the dance lovers to the wall flowers. The energy of that dance floor was like a black hole sucking everyone to it's core.
2. Timing & Organization: Don't overlook this. Your band is a key part of the synchronization of events that make an event magical. It's the hiccups and odd pauses that detract from an event. Geechi and I synched up; he gets it and has deep experience to draw on.
3.Charisma: Geechi's got charisma. A great band without a charismatic leader can do just fine at many venues, but not at a wedding. When you've got the ceremony, the introductions, speeches, cake ceremony, etc, you need someone to bring the energy and charisma to each new segue of the event.
You need these three things above and I can say the Retro Jukebox band has these ingredients in abundance.
