NYE Dream Wedding: Dance floor PACKED all night long

Both my sisters and my cousins have used this band for their weddings, and regardless of the venue, the theme, the crowd, they have not ONCE disappointed. Larry and his band are simply the best!! Larry took my husband and me to lunch a few months before the date to talk about the night. He is clearly an expert - he asked great questions and knew exactly what we wanted so we didn鈥檛 have to worry about anything. The band鈥檚 song list is seemingly endless, and picking out/ranking the songs that we wanted played throughout the entirety of the night was so fun. They kept the night going and the dance floor was packed all night long. HIGHLY recommend Retrospect for any event you plan!!

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!

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!
