The Retrobeats

RetroDrums

 

Formed in 2007, 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
few ballads, country and contemporary numbers thrown in too. Featuring both
male and female lead vocals with a lively stage presentation, consistently
full dance floors are a testimony to their performances. The Retrobeats
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, they have a large
repertoire of great songs from a golden era of popular music. They try to be
a litle different and play songs that audiences have forgotten they
remember! The Retrobeats can tailor their set lists to specific eras /
genres, if desired and can provide themed 50s, 60s and rock n roll shows.

The Retrobeats are a self contained band using high performance equipment,
including lighting, where required. They are public liability insured and
all equipment is PAT tested. The band never use backing tracks and all the
music is performed by themselves at a comfortable volume to suit the venue
and occasion. They will endeavour to be as flexible and accommodating as
possible to ensure events are a success.

The Retrobeats can also offer an additional disco service at an extremely
reasonable price. Using a high quality PA system they 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, clients can
relax, confident that all the entertainment for the evening is taken care
of.

 

On 15.10.2016. my husband and I celebrated our Diamond Wedding at St
Cuthbert’s ARL Club, Montrose Ave, Pemberton. We were entertained by The
RETROBEATS. Their music and songs were a pleasure to listen to. No
migraine inducing Flashing Lights, just pure entertainment. Many thanks for
a wonderful night to remember.

I hired The Retrobeats off the internet for my 80th Birthday Party,knowing
nothing about them. People of all ages (and tastes) were there, and a lot
depended on the right band to make the evening a success. The Retrobeats
scored ten out of ten in every respect. They were friendly and
accommodating; their musicianship was of a high standard, and they were
friendly and entertaining. I’ve said ‘friendly’ twice, because they
created such a relaxed and happy atmosphere – even managing to teach a few
volunteers the art of the air-guitar! If you like a bit of fun and
nostalgia BOOK THEM!”
– Alec Clark

Thank you for being the best wedding band ever! You guys were briliant!
– Bethan & Craig Shingler

The Retrobeats have played for us on two separate occasions in our local
community hall “The Pavilion”, on both occasions they provided fantastic
entertainment and had everyone on their feet dancing. I look forward to
seeing the Retrobeats again in the future.
– Glenn Mellor, Oldham Garden Suburb Residents Association

Thank you for Saturday night. The evening was a great success and the
Captain and his family, like everybody else in the room , thought the music
was fantastic. You contributed to a night the Captain will not forget.
If you ever get people enquiring and asking for a reference, don’t hesitate
to give them my number.

You did us proud on Saturday evening, everyone enjoyed the music, lots of
dancing and great fun, our feet and the rest of our bodies suffered the next

A big thank you to you all. Everyone commented to my mum and dad how much
they enjoyed the band and the songs you did. It was a big success all round.
If we hear of anyone who wants a band we will definitely recommend you and
if we have anymore parties I will get in touch.

Thanks for a great night at Cheadle Golf Club. The feedback has been so
positive, probably the best night ever at the Golf Club.

Fantastic performance by The Retrobeats at my 30th Birthday party last
night, they absolutely created the perfect atmosphere for a 50’s style Back
to the Future / Enchantment Under The Sea Dance and were just so
professional and absolutely made the night! Big thanks to all involved, I
had such an amazing evening bopping away! Would recommend this band to
anyone looking for a great, retro sounding band who will keep the dance
floor full all night! Thanks again!!
– Rebecca Taylor, Stockport

The Retrobeats played at our mum and dad’s surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary

the crowd dancing ’til late. I would highly recommend booking them for a do.
We had a blast!

Have finally got round to thanking you for a great night at our Golf Club
Dinner back in July. Having seen them previously I booked them for our
Captain’s Week Dinner and they didn’t disappoint. Everyone who attended said
they had a great night and I would recommend them to anyone.
– Paul Salt, Heyrose Golf Club captain

The Retrobeats performed at our wedding and they really rocked it! The Team
are very professional and experienced with working in various types of
venues, and took care of all of the music needs for the evening. We had some
disco requests from our guests which they catered for excellently but more
popular still was the brilliant live performance! Everybody was up dancing
and the night really went with a swing! Thanks so much!
– Geraldine and Fabrice

This band really has the authentic sound of 50’s and 60’s pop and rock. They
played for us at the recent Warrington University of Third Age Summer
Social. We had excellent feedback on the night and on the Retrobeats in
particular. Most of our members are 60 plus so know the songs from the first
time around.Thanks for a great evening Paul, Karen, Jeff and Brian. Regards

A massive thank you for playing at Altrincham Football Club beer festival
earlier this month. The Music went down very well, and The Retrobeats were
ideal for the occasion. The Retrobeats were really good – ideal ‘feelgood’
music that everyone was familiar with, that helped to create a proper
Festival atmosphere. Definitely would ask them back for next year, probably
giving them a longer slot if possible.
– Steve Foster, Atrincham football Club

The Retrobeats played at my Cancer Research UK Charity Ball and Auction
Saturday 26th July 2014 and to be honest it was them that made the night.
The music and atmosphere they created was impeccable. People are still
talking about the night and the most popular comments made have been about
the band and ensuring we get them back again.
– Jude Harrison-Smith

To all The Retrobeats – would just like to say a huge thank you on behalf of

the pleasure of singing with you in your band it was an honour really
enjoyed myself. Will be recommending you to all friends & family. – Vicky
Littlewood

To all members of The Retrobeats
Thank you so much for helping to make my birthday party one to remember. You
were a great band, your music was fantastic and was enjoyed by everyone. It
was said everyone felt 20 years younger (I was one of them). I hope you
enjoyed playing for us also. I’m so glad my son & daughter in law found you
– I hope you get lots of bookings, your fame is spreading. Love & thoughts,
– Betty, Warrington
The Retrobeats are just fantastic! They are experienced, professional and
know how to get the crowds dancing from the first song right up until the
last song. I had the opportunity of taking pictures for the band twice and
enjoyed every minute of both. Razvan Dumitrascu

Thanks for helping us raise nearly £4000 for the Marie Curie Cancer Care at
Woolton Golf Club last weekend. Your band was great and it was good that you
could support us. Your performance was very polished and professional and
added that ‘touch of class’ to the evening. It was good to see everyone
enjoying themselves.It is not surprising that you are so much in demand so
it was brilliant that you could fit us in. Thanks.
– Bernie, Woolton Golf Club
