  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Just attended a family wedding where Retrospect performed. We were wowed by their performance. Never left the dance floor empty. An amazing group of talented musicians with an equally amazing song list that appealed to all.

  • 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!!!!!!

  • We’re both on second marriages and chose Reteospect for our wedding band. 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!!! They even took the time to learn a new song that we requested. They did a great with emceeing the event and getting the crowd on the dance floor. Highly recommend!!!!!!

  • Retrospect Band was absolutely incredible. Larry & Co. were such an integral part of our September wedding in Dallastown, Pennsylvania and we will forever be thankful we trusted so many other amazing reviews when making our band decision! Within just a few days of talking with Larry, and before we even signed a contract with him, he took time on a Saturday to drive up to our venue to check out the electrical set-up and other logistical aspects to ensure everything would go smoothly on the big day. The band learned 2 new songs for us for our wedding party entrances and even sent us media clips to hear how things would sound in advance of the wedding. During our reception they killed it - the dance floor was packed and everyone had a wonderful time. The Band even took some great pictures of our guests enjoying the reception and a few of those shots are some of our favorites from the entire day. So many guests have told us after the wedding that they were the best band they've ever seen a... Read more

  • 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 a... Read more

  • Larry and the Retrospect band are amazing! They had everyone on the dance floor all night. I am still having family/friends reach out to tell me how wonderful they were and how much fun they had at my wedding. Larry goes out of his way to make sure everything is in order before the wedding and he is extremely knowledgeable in everything wedding related. I will recommend them to everyone as they are simply the best!

  • Hiring Retrospect for our Wedding Band was one of our best decisions for our wedding!!! The dancing and the music was everyones favorite part of the wedding and we owe all of that to Retrospect!! They played the music that I wanted but also knew exactly what songs to play at the right times to make sure all wedding guests had a blast!! There are few things that Larry (the band leader) & the band did that I felt they went above and beyond the amazing music they played! First, Larry offered to meet me at my venue when I first reached out to hire them to make sure he had all the right equipment for the wedding day! That made me feel super confident that they would be able to deliver everything we wanted, which they did deliver! And then he also took us out to lunch a month before the wedding to review in person the entire day and make sure we were on the same page about every single detail! Second, the band learned extra songs for special dances at our wedding that were not on their list... Read more

  • If 6 stars out of 5 were possible...Retrospect would deserve every one of them AND MORE. I cannot say enough about them and their performance during this past weekend's wedding for my daughter, held in the Blue Room at the Omni Shoreham. The quality, responsiveness, professionalism, flexibility, and the value that we were provided by Larry and Retrospect far exceeded EVERY expectation. They were incredible and fit in so naturally with our wedding guests and the venue. Every wedding in the DC/MD/VA area MUST have Retrospect as their entertainment. Every single one of our guests were either on the dance floor or were dancing in their seats. The feedback from everyone was "this band is phenomenal, where did you find them?". Word of mouth is a great thing because they have done other family and friend's weddings (one coming up next month as well) and I will continue to sing their praises. I said it before and I will say it again...Every wedding in the DC/MD/VA area MUST have R... Read more

  • Had an excellent experience with Larry and the Retrospect team for our wedding. To be brief They learned the songs we wanted to dance to. They played the songs we wanted to party to. They had everyone dancing the WHOLE night. My 91 year old grandma and all my college friends loved it. Would absolutely recommend them in a heart beat!

  • Retrospect is an amazing band. They have played at numerous events for our family and are always fabulous. Most recently they played at my wedding. They truly make any event a party; the band is extremely interactive and get the crowd up on their feet. All of the guests I spoke with at the wedding were very complimentary of Retrospect and thought they were amazing. On top of their onstage performance, Larry is extremely organized, making sure that everything is executed according to plan. Also, Larry and the band are very responsive to requests that make your event unique. My wife and I highly recommend Retrospect.

  • Restrospect is phenomenal! We booked them for our wedding and had high expectations for them....which they left far behind with their amazing performance! They blew us away and every guest I spoke with said the same thing, they were great. The dance floor was packed the entire night, they made us laugh and jump around, Larry (band leader) was just amazing at helping keep the flow of the evening on track too. If you can't tell, we can't recommend them highly enough. They are totally and completely worth the money to have them at your event. Thank you to all of the band/singers, you made our night the best wedding ever!
