We had so much fun with you guys 2 years ago, that we're wanting to do a re-do, for MY 50th in September! You guys had everyone dancing and having fun - the whole neighborhood STILL talks about it! Thank you!!
We hired Retro-Sky to provide entertainment for our Housewarming Party with over 125 guests and they rocked the house. Everyone enjoyed their music and incredible talent. We had guests asking us after our event how to get in contact with Retro-Sky to book their own events. They were a hit. Robert helped create a very memorable event for us. Thank you Retro-Sky!
I hired Retro sky for a private party and they totally rocked. So professional from the beginning. I spoke to Rob and discussed what my expectations were, and he and the band exceeded ALL EXPECTATIONS. They were set up on time and played nonstop for 3 hours, and even stayed late.
Retro Sky was just what we needed for our Christmas party this year. The music was great, the guest were dancing and the energy was just right. Everyone had a great time and asked when the next party was. I hope to have them back for our next event.
We are so happy we decided to hire your band for our party. You guys were amazing and I will be recommending you to all my friends. Rock on!
I've seen Retrosky a few times around town and knew I needed them at my party. They are the nicest guys ever! They showed up on time and were quick with setting up. We did go over a song list ahead of time but they took on some last minute additions with no trouble. They were even under our budget. I will definitely be seeing them perform again and hiring them in the future.
Hired retrosky band to celebrate my husband's 47th birthday and we couldn't be happier. Our guests were thrilled by the fact we had a live band at the party. They sounded amazing and played a bunch of songs from our teenage years, making the night that much more special. Thank you guys.

Retro-Sky is one of South Florida's most engaging 80/90s/00s cover bands because they will take what was great about the hits from those decades and give them a more updated, live and exciting rock feel. Retro-Sky breathes new life into classic songs and performs them with real passion.
Retro-Sky has one of the very best guitar players in the South Florida music scene, Mauricio "el Machete" Espinosa. Singer Rob Fires is highly charismatic and entertaining. The rhythm section includes Miami-Dade College drumming instructor Bill Gato and the classically trained Carlo Ricchi on bass. Depending on the event, Retro-Sky also occasionally plays in acoustic duo-trio-full band modes. The band's immense musical talent and skill allows them to perform practically any pop/rock standard and take some respectful liberties, yet never losing the integrity of the original song.
All of these aspects make Retro-Sky a different, refreshing experience, which will keep your guests engaged, dancing and having intense fun. Retro-Sky is an active gigging South Florida band and plays regularly at local venues such as Bougainvillea's, Yumbrella SoMi , Copper Blues, World of Beer , Cheers, & Gilbert's Key Largo to name a few - as well as special events, weddings and private parties across the tri-county area.
