About Throwback

Throwback is a band born out of passion, excitement, and enthusiasm for the music of the 60's, 70's and 80's. We love The Beatles, The Stones, The Who and huge mix of British Invasion, American pop, and contemporary hits & deep cuts.

Throwback is appropriate for a wide variety of venues, including general business parties, corporate functions, and weddings.

Amazing Band

By Claudia T. on September 26, 2016

We really had a lot of fun. These guys are great. Great songs and great singers. A family band!

Hired as: Party Band

Booking Info

  • Typical Gig: 120 - 240 minutes
  • Fee: $1,000 and up
  • Languages: English


Throwback performs solid covers of rock, soft rock, country, disco, and dancing music from the '60's through to today's hits. Most people observing a Throwback show will be out of their seats and on the dance floor shaking what they've got because you can't just sit still when Throwback is rockin' the house.

Throwback's style of mature rock 'n roll ensures an exciting mix of vocals/harmonies and instruments, withOUT the noise that often infiltrates less mature acts.


Throwback is a 5-piece, high-energy, partying band. Whether it's The Beatles, Lady Gaga or anything inbetween, when we're playing, there's a party, plain and simple. We love to play, and we love to have fun!
