Retronomy

About

Retronomy are a unique vintage act who make new songs sound old and old songs sound retro.

With a chic and class all their own, they take popular songs currently in the charts and classic numbers from the 50s, 60s and 70s and give them the Retronomy treatment. Influenced by Motown, Northern soul, Funk, Jazz, New Orleans Rhythm & Blues and Reggae; the vintage sound they create is infectious and captivating.

" Retronomy were the perfect solution for us. A cool, retro, British sound from these besuited troubadours - they are now the house band at all our partys. "

Tom Davies, Corporate Anniversary Event, 2013

Performing with original instruments from the 60s and 70s Retronomy will lace an unmistakable and atmospheric tone into their surroundings. Available in a wide range of line ups from their acoustic act, main band and female fronted sister band they utlise years of experience to cater for all styles of events.

The band will arrive in style complete with tweed suits, flat caps, vintage equipment, mood lighting and full PA. The recorded music they provide in-between sets continues the vintage vibe and the night will see guests transported to bygone years when music shaped and influenced the youth of the time.

Well what can I say? Retronomy were absolutely awesome.

Thank you for making Friday evening such a great night, everyone was raving about how great you all were. I was so chuffed to have made what was so obviously the right choice in booking you.

Every single person expressed how much they'd enjoyed your performance so from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I will most certainly be in touch again!

Carly Britton, Ferrari Vintage Event, 2012

" Retronomy helped to create a wonderful atmosphere for our event. I received so many compliments about them: smooth and effortless. "

Helen Bessant, Charity Event

" Loved it. All members looked and acted so appropriate for the occasion. They delivered exactly what we asked for, and the Christmas songs were particularly good.

The band were so talented and professional as many of guests testified. They really helped to make our day everything we dreamed of. "
