St Cyril of Jerusalem Parish 1940s USO Benefit
80th Birthday Party, Glendale
Liz Holmes and the Retro Band was the hit of our recent party. Liz and her group are total pros. Liz was highly communicative up front which gave us a lot of comfort that we were on the same page on timing and song selection. The band was there and set up well ahead of time and played tunes to appeal to all ages in the crowd, from 3 to 87. Liz allowed us to use her microphone to do a few announcements for the crowd. The band sounded great, looked great and were total professionals. Highly recommend!

So many of my guests asked me how and where I found this band because they enjoyed them so much. The guest of honor called them the "Million Dollar Band" and I think that's appropriate. They knew exactly how to keep both the dance floor and the dinner tables full based on their experience and professionalism - without any input from me. Their wonderful music made you want to dance but their volume made it easy to socialize if you weren't a ballroom dancer. They were able to play EVERY request for a formidable dancing guest list ages 75 to 5 - including a Paso Doble - and everyone was delighted. From the initial contact to a final clean up I give them ten out of ten.

The Retro Swing Band provided a great sound for our wedding . They came early to set up and played every song that was requested by our guests. In preparation for the big night Liz helped us compile a great list of 30, 40 , 50' s music They looked great their sound was so authentic, you could swear you were back in time. I would highly recommend Liz and The Retro Swing Band .

Liz and her band exceeded all expectations! They were fabulous and accommodating to our every request including letting our son-in-law sit in and play trumpet with them. They could not have been better.

Perfect for our event! Liz and her band were great to work with. It was easy to book and the details got worked out quickly. We had a 40's style dinner gala on the Queen Mary and the music was perfect. The attendees loved them and I highly recommend them.
