Electro Retro is not your ordinary cover band! People who see us describe us as a "Breath of Fresh Air." This is because we do different music, do not use tracks/sequences, and interact with the crowd so everyone has a great time. The band plays a wide range of fun, sing-a-long, dance, and rock hits from the 1960s to the present. This allows us to deliver on our slogan "Keep Dancing".
What also makes us different is our collaboration with our event hosts and sponsors. You will never experience the "Rock and Roll" attitude when working with Electro Retro.
Electro Retro kept us dancing all night long at our holiday party. Easy to work with and fun to be with. Thank you for a fabulous evening!
Electro Retro performed for my husband's 40th birthday party....absolutely amazing from start to finish!! Highly recommend -- kudos to the entire band for making it such a success, thank you thank you!
Our crowd LOVED you and I am so appreciative of how flexible you all were!! You were an amazing addition to our day and we can’t wait to have you back! Highly recommend!
I cannot say enough great things about Electro Retro! They provided a great show with fantastic tunes perfectly coordinated to give our event the boost and mood we wanted. There song choices, beats, pace and timing were perfect in every way. Electro Retro truly rocks and I'm a fan for life!!! Tim promised big things and delivered on every promise. The whole band was courteous and accommodating. They actually OVER delivered. Truly exceeded all my expectations and then some. Love this group!!!
Electro Retro were amazing! They took the time to get to know us and our wedding plans before the event, and they were a perfect fit! They understood all of our needs (from ceremony DJ through the end of the dance party -- including accommodating 2 toasts given over the phone due to COVID!) and worked with us to make our event exactly what we wanted, including by dressing in costumes that fit the vibe of our event. They exceeded our expectations, and really made our wedding -- including the two hours of dance party after dusk -- everything we were hoping it would be. I would absolutely book them again. (Sorry, we don't have our professional photos back yet!)
We had Electro Retro play at our wedding reception! Best decision we made! Everyone enjoyed their live performance. We worked with Tim directly to select the songs, lighting, and our timeline. It turned out exactly how we discussed. Thank you for being apart of our special day!
Electro retro was awesome!!! We planned a surprise birthday party and booked them in under a week in a half. The owner reached out immediately after requesting service. 5 person cover band and had the whole party dancing for the entire time!!! Professional and easy to deal with.

What to Expect
Electro Retro is easy to do business with from planning to execution we are collaborative with sponsors and hosts to make the event outcome what you expect.
We can dress in period outfits the 70's,80's, etc, a color scheme or traditional to align with your event. We also provide a state-of-the-art light and sound system scaled to your event, not too loud, not too soft. Even including options for electronic drums, a full-service technician, and a project manager to keep things on time and aligned. This way all you have to do is execute your event and have fun!
Our performers are degreed professionals who both perform and educate others so our talent allows us to cover a wide range of music equally well.
Electro Retro was formed because the leader and visionary see 3 problems with the current band market:
1) Most of the bands use the same tired old setlist that you have heard 1000 times.
2) Most bands use tracks or pitch correction to fool you they are actually performing instead of lip-syncing.
3) Most bands have a rotating lineup of jobbers who spend their time reading charts, not entertaining you and your guests. You deserve better, to get fun, dance music that adds to the quality of your event, and that is why we exist.
Versatility – our catalog includes the best of generations. We play Lady Gaga, Prince, Pink, Bruno Mars, Hall and Oats, Michael Jackson, ELO, The Bee Gees, Donna Summer, and all the hits and memorable tunes going back to the 60s. Our audiences complement our wide range and top-shelf performance.
Authenticity – we customize our playlist for each event. We play those forgotten one-hit wonders of the greatest songs and focus on a lively feel for dancing, singing along, and having a great time. Our band members have performed on three continents with national acts and Chicagoland venues including casino stages, Rib Fest, and Taste of Chicago. Our audiences recognize our ability to replicate the sounds of original studio releases.
Collaboration – we don’t just blend our talents, we involve our audiences for spontaneous interaction. Beyond
on-the-spot special requests, we emcee events and connect with guests for a truly successful event. Audiences tell us we’re a “breath of fresh air”. We are here to make this fun, you will never experience the "Rock and Roll" attitude from us from planning to executing your event.
