The Retrobeats are a 4 piece live band playing pop and rock 'n' roll hits primarily from the late 1950s through to the mid 1970s with a bit of country and contemporary numbers thrown in too.
Featuring both male and female lead vocals with a lively stage presentation, full dance floors are a testimony to our performances. Our music covers a wide range of artistes… from Elvis Presley to The Beatles, Connie Francis to Dusty Springfield, The Drifters to Manfred Mann, Leo Sayer to Showaddywaddy and a host of one hit wonders too, we have a large repertoire of great songs from a golden era of popular music. We can tailor our set lists to specific eras / genres, if desired.
We are a self contained band with compact high performance equipment, including lighting, if required. We are public liability insured and all our equipment is PAT tested. We never use backing tracks and all the music is performed by ourselves at a comfortable volume to suit the venue and occasion. We endeavour to be as flexible and accommodating as possible to ensure your event is a success.
We also offer an additional disco service at an extremely reasonable price. Using our high quality PA system we can provide music mixes as background to the evening's proceedings, music during breaks between our performances and then a lively disco playing songs from all eras and for all ages to round the night off. With this service, you can relax, confident that all the entertainment for the evening is taken care of. We can theme the music or play a wide range of varying styles. If you want specific songs we just ask for some notice before the event. We have sourced some very obscure tracks for clients in the past!
