You will not be disappointed! Retrospect recently played at our daughter’s wedding reception. The guests were blown away by the selection of great dancing music. The songs connected all generations and our friends and family had the best time ever. Larry was wonderful in helping us to prepare for the event. He met with us prior to the wedding to get to know the couple and go over details. Upon leaving that meeting, I knew Retrospect had the entertainment piece totally under control and they absolutely came through. We have seen them perform over the years and their talent and professionalism have been overwhelming. We will call on them in the future for any musical performance needs we have. They helped to make our special day even more special!!!!!!Sent on 06/29/2019

We wanted a high energy band with a dedicated horn section that had the versatility to play music from several different decades and genres. Restrospect did not disappoint... they were AMAZING!!!

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!
I love this band they are awesome. Easy to work with and play such a wide variety of music you can only be pleased if you use Retrospect.
Larry and his gang are tops! Always a pleasure to work with them at receptions. The guests are always impressed with this group and they give you a terrific reception experience.
