Remember listening to your favorite radio station when you were a kid? - the one that always seemed to be playing all of your favorite songs, ALL the time?  Well, now you can flashback to those good old days with RADIO RETRO RADIO RETRO is a fun-packed, high-energy dance band that faithfully reproduces all the best music of the 60ís, 70ís, 80's and 90ís. Great bands like: The Go-Gos, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty,  The Bangles, Fleetwood Mac, Madonna, The Cars, Pat Benatar, Journey, The Supremes, AC/DC, The Eurythmics, Dion, Men At Work, Joan Jett, The B-52's, The Eagles, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Elvis, U2, Lynard Skynard...the list goes on and on...but it doesn't stop with just rock-n-roll.  RADIO RETRO can also tap into a huge variety of material from the other genres as well: like Motown, country, disco, reggae, southern rock, standards, and jazz - all selected from Billboardís Top 40 charts and ALL INSTANTLY RECOGNIZABLE HITS.  No obscure songs that nobody remembers. This deep, solid repertoire makes RADIO RETRO the perfect party band for listeners and dancers of all ages.

Want all 80's music?  You got it.  Want just 50's - 60's music?  No problemo. Maybe toss in some country tunes along with some classic rock or just play a great mixture of everything?  You name it, you got it.  And along with their energetic live music, RADIO RETRO keeps the energy running high by spinning CD/iPod music on their professional sound system during their short breaks. So, in effect, you get a live band AND a DJ! WHOA!  PLUS RADIO RETRO can also provide the music for your wedding ceremony with acoustic guitar, vocals and your choice of songs.

We are absolutely thrilled with our decision to hire Radio Retro for  our daughter's wedding. They are a truly great band and really know how to read a crowd! The dance floor was packed all night as they played hit after hit. It was perfect for our daughters wedding and they masterfully learned new songs for her first dance and for the father daughter dance at our request. Thank you, Radio Retro! We cannot wait to have another reason to hire you!

Radio Retro, played at our 5/10K race, the Run By The Creek.  They were fantastic and kept the crowd smiling and having fun.  They were a big part of the success of our event and I got many compliments about the music.  They were self-sufficient and came ready to go.

Thank you, Radio Retro, for playing at our Christmas party at the Austin Country Club! You were awesome! Many of my co-workers commented on the quality of your sound and how they enjoyed your flexibility of taking requests for different songs.  We look forward to having you back NEXT YEAR!

Radio Retro played my wife's 30th birthday party recently.  They were fantastic!  Several of our friends asked for their card to play future events.  They had great communication skills, were flexible with the type and content of their show, and most importantly they had as good a time performing as the partygoers had dancing.  I would highly recommend them for your show!

Radio Retro went well beyond our expectations.  I hired them to play for my wifeís 40th birthday party, and they were terrific from start to finish.  They were extremely proactive in communicating with us before the party, and they played unbelievably well at the party.  I would highly recommend Radio Retro for any occasion.

Jim,
Thanks!  You guys were great.  I was working the event so I missed the entire first set, but the second set was rocking.  You even got the GOVERNOR up on stage!  The next one is going to be bigger and better.  We are looking forward to it.

Dear Jim,
Thank you so much for playing at our event.  You and the band made the association's party, a "party" totally. Everyone loved the music and the musicianship! We look forward to our next event where we can have you and the band back. Not soon enough judging by the audience response.

Thank you again.

Jim,
I wanted to write and let you know how much I appreciate you and your band playing again at Sculpture Challenge this year.   I can't begin to tell you how many people complimented me on the music.   You all are professionals and really set the mood.  Hope to have you back to perform here again.
