great sound! energetic, entertaining, flexible...
What a band! What a great sound! energetic, entertaining, flexible and even skilled in photography! Thanks Larry and the band for just a wonderful wedding celebration! The huge smiles in pictures you posted on your facebook page should easily tell the story! Your work with our daughter, the bride, on the playlist and the performance were outstanding! It certainly was a night we will remember forever.Sent on 10/11/2019

This band is like family!
The whole Retrospect team is amazing, the best band ever! They are like a family themselves, and when the bridal party went on stage to play 2 songs with them, it was like one big happy family! The whole band was smiling the whole night; it appeared that they genuinely enjoyed themselves as much as all of our guests did! As my daughter the bride said, the whole day was just as she wanted it to be, and the band was a major part of the night. Larry goes above and beyond to prepare with the bride/groom and make sure the party is fun and joyful for everyone! Can't wait to call them again for our next family wedding!Sent on 10/12/2019

Great part of the best night of my life- Energetic, quality, flexible, accommodating
Retrospect performed at my wedding in September and they were FANTASTIC! The energy in the room was tangible, people danced all night. I loved what they did with the lights. Larry was so incredibly accommodating, helping us with the timeline and ideas. They learned I think 4 new songs for us, and they let us come up on stage and perform with them! I would 100% hire them again for any other event we do. I got so many comments about how great the band was. The playlist was so good, even my non-English-speaking friends loved the music. Thank you Retrospect!Sent on 10/31/2019

Retrospect really kept the party going. As a photographer, I rely on the DJ and entertainment to keep people smiling and active on the dance floor. Great entertainment, like Retrospect, makes my job so much easier and more fun! Thanks for being great pros!
