  • Great band!!! They knew when to keep it down (during dinner) and when to pick it up a notch to make sure the party kept going! They have a great repetoire of music and also learned new songs that were important to us (including "The Rainbow Connection" for my dance with my now stepson). Provided good emcee services as well.

  • Retrospect was just amazing- played all the songs we requested in advance that werent reflected on their playlist, and did an outstanding job on each of the selections! The dance floor was always packed, and for some extra dollars, they continued to play an additional hour to keep the party going! All the guests asked over and over again "who is this band?"- and wanted them for their weddings, events, etc. I liked how there was limited "MC-ing" - none of the cheesy DJ chatter that some wedding receptions fall victim to. All in all- thank you so much Retrospect for helping to make my wedding such a fun party!

  • Retrospect was more than I could have asked for. I am extremely picky and they were wonderful. So many people danced at our wedding in August 2009 and people still tell me how much fun our wedding was. Those are the biggest compliments of all because you spend months planning for your special day and at the end of the day you want everyone to remember what a fantastic party it was! Larry is fantastic to work with - they offer great dancing music and will learn a new song for your wedding if you give them enough notice. You cannot go wrong with Retrospect!

  • This was by far our FAVORITE vendor!! I would give them 10 stars if I could. Excellent, talented, fun.... etc. They encouraged everyone to dance and many times were on the dance floor with us. We are still getting calls from our guests with nothing but positive comments about Retrospect. People who usually don't dance were on the dance floor. I am looking forward to seeing the video so that we can relive the first dance and everything else that happened that night. We left wishing that we booked them for another couple of hours because time went by too fast. :) Larry was great to work with and answered any and all questions we had. He gave his professional opinion and was extremely flexible. We also booked one of the members of the band to play the guitar at our cocktail hour. Although I didn't get to hear him, I heard he was very good. I promise that you will NOT be disappointed with Retrospect. Well worth the money.

  • We contacted Retrospect via a recommendation and they did not disappoint. We found them to be very easy to work with and very proactive in making sure they understood our wants and that the event went off without a hitch. Our guests are still raving out the music and the band members. We could not be happier with them.

  • We knew we wanted a live band for our wedding a couple years back, but we had some newer songs we loved off the radio that we weren't sure they'd be able to play... well, Larry ellison just asked us the song titles and sure enough at our reception, Retrospect played them perfectly- including our first dance song by Dave Matthews. The band was so much fun. They let our exuberant relatives sing a song here and there, and at the request of some of our guests, they played the Washington Redskins fight song! They got off the stage and danced while playing their instruments... truly I can't say enough about them. For our 8 year anniversary this year they even emailed us a live song they played for us saying Happy anniversary. Best wedding vendor we booked, overall!! Thanks Retrospect!

  • I can't imagine any band being a better choice for a wedding reception! The band leader, Larry Elliott, is a dream to work with! A few days before the wedding, I learned that he even traveled to the Bedford Springs on his own time before our wedding to check out the setup. He had never been there before and wanted to make sure our special day was flawless. On the night of, everything was precision when it came to Larry assuming the emcee role. As for the band's sound, well, they're just the best! I can't tell you how many demo CDs we listened to when choosing a band. While Retrospect was more expensive than some, no one held a candle to them. The choice was easy. And, live, they were even better! Our guests were just blown away by their talent! I've never witnessed our friends and family having so much fun! The dance floor was packed all night! The classical guitarist during cocktail hour was perfect, too!

  • Larry Elliott and the rest of the band were completely AWESOME!! First of all they learned 2 new songs for us, secondly they are so much fun (great perfomers) and you have to have them sing SHOUT! 3rd extremely flexible - my husband totally forgot to give Larry the song for our wedding party to dance too, literally 2 minutes before we and our wedding party walked out to be introduced I happened to mention the song to Larry and he said huh, I explained it to him and he was not even phased in the least, just said not a problem we will take care of it! It was perfect!!! Hire them, they are so much fun and they were voted #1 in the Washingtonian. Oh did I mention they travel? I got married about 120 miles away!

  • A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. They were not cheap, but you got a 9 piece band. They were absolutely WONDERFUL! Everyone at the wedding said it the band was phenomenal. Worth every penny considering I think the reception is all about dancing, and having a geat time. They were very involved, active, and great performers. Mine and my father's father/daughter dance choice was not on the list, and even though the wedding was a few weeks away, they said it was no problem. They did a fabulous job on the song! I would definitely use them again for a future event!!! Again, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!
