Who we are.....
We are just two guys giving back to the community by supporting a charity, CLIC Sargent, which supports children who are suffering from cancer.
We do this by playing and singing popular songs at pubs and clubs around Berks. & Bucks. We also play for private parties and at other events. We cover our expenses ourselves. Everything donated at the gigs goes to CLIC Sargent .
The Retros first public performance was at a private party full of friends. Now several years and many gigs later, the band has raised many thousands of pounds for CLIC Sargent. While there were many deserving charities The Retros could support, they chose CLIC Sargent because kids are the hope of the future. By using their musical talents to help support this fine charity, Dave and Rob are doing their part to make sure that any child stricken with cancer has every means to fight and beat this dreadful disease.
The hallmark of the Retros is their inventive vocal harmonies together with Rob's versatile guitar accompaniment supported by state-of-the-art technology to add percussion and other musical instruments. The Retros unique sound makes for a fun and inspirational evening. Friends coming together, having some fun, and doing their part for the community. Keeping the memory of JBT alive.
The Retros popularity is growing and the sums of money being raised bear this out. Dave and Rob are now just happy to be along for the ride that JBT so clearly started and has already amplified from inspired giving at Christmas to the community at large.
