Private Function - Club Night
Last Saturday (9 July) Newton Longville Village Day was an enormous success and 'Retrobution' were as well received as in the past so thank you to all the members of your band... Everyone had a wonderful evening.
Many, many thanks for the wonderful evening you all gave me, rekindling all sorts of memories from years gone by....It never ceases to amaze me that you young 'uns obviously enjoy such old classic numbers; your faces just glow as you yourselves obviously enjoy playing as much as we all enjoy listening...You really gave me and all of my family and friends such a great night to remember, thanks again to you all.
Retrobution are a five-piece band based in and around Milton Keynes in the UK - a classic line up of four instrumentalists, with female lead vocals plus a heap of well-known songs have resulted in a loyal following.
We originally formed in Summer 2000 almost by accident, during a series of workshops held for local musicians at The Stables, Wavendon. Following a hugely successful end-of-term gig (where we had everyone dancing in the aisles), we decided to continue with the band that became Retrobution. Countless line up changes later, we're still going strong!
We play cover versions drawn from a wide range of styles - classic songs by the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac sit next to hits by Adele and Kings Of Leon in our song list.
Our second set typically begins with classic soul standards in the style of the Blues Brothers and Commitments, before turning to good old-fashioned rock'n'roll, disco and an anthem or two!
You WILL dance!
