WHY RETROSONIC?

 

RETROSONIC are different from some cover bands - one reason is that they are all very experienced musicians, and not a bunch of amateurs who

just throw a few songs together on the night.

Also some so called cover bands are actually 2 or 3 singer / guitarists / keyboardists who play along to 'backing music' - and not actually a 'live' band.
