    So much fun!!

    Retrospect did an amazing job at our wedding and had everyone on the dance floor from beginning to end of the night! Larry was very professional and helpful throughout the whole process, he even took us to lunch to walk through logistics and all of our requests so everything went smoothly on the day of. They also learned several songs we requested! Cannot say enough great things about this band!! Thank you Retrospect!

    We wish we could give them ten stars each. After all of our guests left we went to each band member and thanked them personally for the amazing night. Hiring them was hands down the best decision of our wedding.

    If you're tempted to prioritize flowers, cake, fancy appetizers or any of the other gazillion things that can come with a wedding, take a second to think about the most memorable weddings you've ever been to. I bet the thing that stands out is the music, the dancing and the celebration you had with friends and family. Don't skimp on live music! And you don't have to, because Retrospect is very affordable!

    The father-daughter dance to Glenn Miller band's Moonlight Serenade, the mother-son dance to Frank Sinatra, and Retrospect learned the song we wanted played for our first dance... these are exceptional memories that we can't stop talking about. And there was no better way to create amazing new relationships and bonds with our new families and friends than dancing and laughing with them all on the dance floor. Seeing our cousins and siblings dance and laugh even though they just met each other was the most uplifting and incredible thing we didn't think about during wedding planning, but now find ourselves so fortunate about.

    The band leader, Larry, was incredibly responsive and organized. We reviewed stage placement, songs we wanted them to play and the overall schedule. Compared to some of the others we interviewed prior to selecting Retrospect, they really stood out. There are a few bands online that are actually not real "bands," but corporate companies that put together contract musicians who may never have played together before! We found ourselves being very uneasy talking to them until we discovered this trade secret. And there are other bands that are simply way unaffordable.

    But Retrospect has been playing and practicing together for a long time. And it really shows. Please get them for your wedding.
