I can’t speak as closely to engaging with the band, as they liaised through our wedding planners through many details about the venue, set up, and weather, but their talent and ability to read the room to create an unforgettable event was incredible. My expectations were far surpassed and I would highly recommend!
Having spent years as musicians and songwriters in original bands, they are able to put their own stamp on the songs they play in a way that few cover bands can. The result is a refreshing take on both classic and current party songs, played with the energy and authenticity that comes from doing what they love.
The Retreat's talent and flexibility enables them to handle every part of your celebration. It's like having several bands in one! Options include classical piano or acoustic guitar for your wedding ceremony, jazzy versions of contemporary hits on the saxophone for a cocktail hour, and a coffeehouse-style acoustic set during dinner. All of which pave the way for what this band does best: a high-energy, fun-filled dance party with music ranging from classic rock to Motown, from 80's pop to 90's rock, from country to the latest pop hits.
The Retreat is a fantastic band whose musicians are not only talented and engaging onstage, but genuinely nice people. Their infectious personalities make them fun to be around and by the end of the evening you'll feel like you've been friends for years. All in all, a night with The Retreat gets you more than just a night of great music -- it gets you a unique soundtrack for your memories.
