Retrospect Band: Five-star rated wedding band in Washington DC
Retrospect® will always customize the performance to fit any event, whether it’s a gala for 2,000 guests or a wedding reception for 100 guests. We have a proven record of continually raising the bar high for all event entertainment in the Washington DC area and well beyond.
You will be able to choose your music from our enormous song list offering far more depth and variety than others, with music ranging from the great horn bands of the ‘70s, 80s, and 90s, to Motown, to current dance and party music.
Welcome to the website of Retrospect®. This nine-piece horn band is repeatedly recognized by both Washingtonian Magazine and Wedding Wire as one of Washington DC’s best wedding bands.
With the ideal combination of energy, hot horns, musical talent and experience, Retrospect is the perfect choice to expertly transform your wedding or party into an exceptional event that will be long remembered by your guests.
All Retrospect® booking is done directly through the band leader, Larry Elliott. We are Washington DC’s original self-managed band, and we are never available through any booking agency or other middleman. Although rumored to be one of DC’s most expensive bands, it’s simply not true. We provide affordable music for weddings, parties and most types of special events.
Our home base is the Washington DC, suburban Maryland and Northern Virginia area, but we can and do travel anywhere in the continental United States to perform.Most of our performances have been in the mid-Atlantic region, ranging from Connecticut to Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Retrospect is available to play at weddings, conventions, holiday parties, reunions, bachelor parties, charity fundraising events, nightclubs, public concerts, bachelor parties, boys and girls mitzvahs… any function a band would play for.

Our three amazing lead vocalists are always backed up by the same hot horns and versatile rhythm section, never a pick-up band. Our singers and musicians always perform LIVE, never using pre-recorded backgrounds, pre-recorded horns or digital substitutes for real musicians.
