Blurring the lines between a corporate party band and an original soulful rock group, The Retreat has entertained countless audiences across the southeast with their unique and organic take on the hits of yesterday and today.
The Retreat is not a stereotypical cheesy show band: there are no matching outfits, no choreographed dance moves, no note-for-note versions of the same songs you've heard over and over again. Rather than this cookie-cutter show, The Retreat was founded as an actual BAND who spent years writing their own music and paying their dues in the musical melting pot of Atlanta. As a result, The Retreat has their own sound, look, and identity--something that can't be faked.
They take this same make-it-their-own approach to immediately familiar past and current hits. Whether it's a DMB-style sax solo on "Some Nights," a punk rock singalong of "Country Roads," a raucous bluesy take on "How Sweet It Is," a dancefloor-shaking rendition of "Get Lucky" or unexpectedly awesome mash-ups like "Don't Stop Believing" and"With Or Without You" or "Wagon Wheel," "Semi-Charmed Life" and "Cruise"... it all still sounds like The Retreat. They put their own legit stamp on each song in a way that few cover bands can do.
The Retreat can take care of almost all aspects of an event. Be sure to
talk to us about:
- solo jazz saxophone for a cocktail hour or rehearsal dinner
- classical piano or guitar and vocals for a wedding ceremony
- an acoustic male and female coffeehouse-style duet
- sound production for a wedding ceremony
- our drummer is an ordained minister and does an excellent job officiating weddings!
The Retreat's draw extends beyond their musical talent: over-the-top professionalism in customer service and an infectious personality also set them apart. Simply put, these are 5 people that are fun to be around. From the first email contact on through to the big night, they are partnering with you to help write the story of your event; helping to make memories and give you something truly special and unforgettable.

Best band ever!
The Retreat played at our wedding this past Saturday and they absolutely made our night the best night!! Our guests CANNOT STOP TALKING ABOUT HOW AMAZING THEY WERE!! Between the great range of songs they play, their amazing instrumental and vocal skills, not to mention the best saxophone player during our dinner for our evening music; we are obsessed with this band! I cannot say more amazing things about this band! Definitely the best decision we could have made! We’ve been to weddings with bands that had 14 people, and I would pick this band again over any other band for any event! Thank you to The Retreat for making our night absolutely amazing!Sent on 10/15/2019

I highly recommend The Retreat! They are amazing!
The Retreat did a fantastic job! They went above and beyond our expectations! We requested the band go from a slow song right into a fast song for the father daughter dance for a choreographed routine and they did an awesome job with it! All night they had people dancing and all of our guests have been raving about them! I highly recommend The Retreat!Sent on 09/25/2019
