Excellent night. Retrosonic played at New Year's eve in Wanaka for the Summerdaze Festival. Very professional, fantastic performance and certainly engaged with the crowd. Awesome voices and selection of songs. I would recommend Retrosonic for any show or festival. Thanks guys.

We hired Retrosonic to play for one of the main nights at our event, and I have heard nothing but praise from the participants for the band. They were completely professional from start to finish, and forged a strong bond with the audience. It's a real pleasure to find a band that can get absolutely everyone up on the dancefloor, and even better to find one with such talented musicians. Awesome night, thanks guys.

Fantastic! This crew has style..they set the perfect mood for the wedding with good song selection and a very professionally delivered mix of covers that catered for everyone present. I liked their presentation and stage craft too, Mandy the lead singer has a contagious enthusiasm for her singing that keeps you up on the dance floor long after you think you've done enough. It was a brilliant night made even better by a very talented group of musicians.
