A taste of our energy

Serving all kinds of events

Weddings, Corporate Events, Public Festivals, Parties, Ticketed Events, you name it.

We do it all. We work with professionally trained musicians across the country and we pride ourself on our ability to find the perfect band for any and every type of event. Our favourite events to play are weddings, they're our speciality, but we have put together bands for all sorts of things, from theatre pits to internationally touring tribute shows. We cater to events from a variety of cultures, too, with significant experience with British, Indian, and Jewish style weddings among others.

Let's get down to the numbers

Pricing transparency is super important to us.

Since the beginning of our small business journey, we've prioritised transparency in pricing. Why? Because we recently got married ourselves, and when booking our suppliers, we found it to be such a hassle finding any figures at all for their services.

So, alongside the very important vows we made to each other that day, we also vowed never to hide our prices from our potential customers.

So, you don't have to reach out to several different bands to figure out whether you can afford them, with an inbox full of quotes, and an overwhelming number of people to let down. We keep our prices in line with the industry standards for our area, while making sure we pay our talented musicians fairly - it's the only way you can get the best musicians on your special day. So you can rest assured, you're getting a good price for the excellent quality of service we provide, every time.

In addition to our standard packages, we can tailor our offering to you and your event, so get in touch to see what we can do for you.

Why Choose Us?

We get the party started.

As The New Retros, we believe that our old-school supportive approach sets us apart from the other bands. We are all very accomplished and professional musicians who have studied in some of the top music schools in the country. Some of us have played on cruise ships around the world, supported some very famous musicians in their UK stadium tours, have written our own original music (which we certainly will not play) and have played in some of the best-selling theatre shows across the country in different tribute bands. We are all established and experienced wedding band members and have seen and dealt with almost all venue types and wedding sizes. So, if you're like our band leader and you like to terrorize yourself by thinking of every possible thing that could go wrong, you can rest assured that you can stop worrying about the band - we have seen (and discretely sorted) it all!
