With a proven track record of hundreds of consistently successful wedding receptions and parties, Retrospect will bring to your event the perfect combination of experienced professionals and youthful energy. What our clients say.

We’ll give your family members and guests of all ages a chance to join in the fun, with popular dancing music from every era, chosen from our huge list of available songs. Our full list is shown here. If you have favorite current or nostalgic tunes that you don’t see listed, we are always open to learning new songs – this is how our song list gets so huge.

At your wedding, Retrospect will provide effortless transitions, moving from introductions to dinner, to toasts, to dancing, to a rocking party. This is why so many brides have chosen Retrospect’s experienced approach to creating a fun party atmosphere at their wedding receptions.



You’ll feel more relaxed on your wedding day, having met directly with the band leader, Larry -- knowing that your song requests and other instructions are in his hands, and he will be there through your whole reception to follow through on those instructions.

Rest assured that Retrospect is a rehearsed stable group, not a ”pick-up” band – a one-night, thrown-together collection of musicians who happen to be available on your wedding day.

If you have any questions about Retrospect, or want to check our availability for your reception,
call Larry at 301-438-2400 or email us: Larry@RetrospectBand.com Read less

Retrospect is by far the best band I have ever heard at any party (and many of my guests said the same!) They played for my son's Bar Mitzvah, and the adults and kids alike had an absolute blast! Everyone was up dancing, the variety of music was fantastic, they sound GREAT. We didn't want them to be too loud - the volume was perfect. The band leader met with me in advance to go through the kinds of music we wanted, and then he adapted the day before when my 21-year old daughter threw some new songs into the mix! They were TERRIFIC! I will definitely be using them again for future parties.

I've known this group for years and they ALWAYS impress! My guests had a blast and my father-in-law couldn't stop raving about the great song selection. They learned new songs just for us and even let us sing a few with them! If I ever need a band for another event I would hire them in a heartbeat, and I recommend them to ANYONE who wants quality music!

We are so glad we asked Retrospect to be the band for our wedding! We had first met them when they played at my sister's wedding a few years ago, they were a hit then so it was a no-brainer to ask them to play at our wedding. Larry, their bandleader, took us out to lunch before the wedding to meet us, and we were able to give him a list of our song preferences. He was so responsive and kind. Their band played just the right songs during both the dinner hour and dancing part of the night, and just had a great feel for what would be the next great hit with the crowd! The dance floor was packed the entire night -- with our grandparents, friends, and younger cousins! All ages had a great time, and we had several guests come up and tell us it was the best wedding band they had ever heard! We couldn't have been happier.

Retrospect did a great job at our wedding - our guests are still talking about how awesome their music was over a month later! Larry was very prompt in answering all of my questions in the months leading up to our event, and the band accommodated our requests with no hesitation. We played a slideshow during our reception and had asked the band to accompany it with a song, and they did a wonderful job extending the music until the slideshow completed. Larry met with us a few weeks before the wedding to review all details, and afterwords I knew we wouldn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day!

A great band with a terrific range. Larry, the band leader, was wonderful to work with. He was very flexible and took us out before the wedding to discuss our thoughts for the big day. He took a real interest in us and asked about what kind of songs we wanted played, the age range of the people attending our wedding and answered our many other questions. It made us feel very comfortable to know we had someone who really cared about making our celebration fantastic. We were very pleased and had a wonderful time, as did all of our guests. We would use them again without a doubt.

Retrospect was beyond AMAZING for our downtown DC wedding reception. Throughout the planning process, they were always available for questions, and accomodated extra song requests we had which were not listed on their song list. They even learned our first dance song! Our dance floor was packed the whole night, and the guests even requested an encore after the last song was played! We keep receiving comments from our guests about how phenomenal the band was. I would not hesitate to recommend Retrospect in the future, they are incredible!

Absolutely the best band out there! The New York bands we were thinking of bringing down were 4x the price and didn't meet the sound, enthusiasm, engage the guests, or offered the repertoire of music. The two female vocalists were outstanding. These guys could take on the very best from Palm Beach to Maine. They were upper echelon all the way!
Larry took pictures of the wedding as well which were amazing. I don't know how he did it! These guys were easy to deal with, very professional, and simply the best bang for the buck!
