We all had a great weekend but are shagged out! You went down really well with everyone, and on behalf of the committee I would like to say a big thanks to all of you…
...Retrobution came on stage next and kept up the pace with a selection of covers from across the years. Ending with 'I Predict A Riot' by the Kaiser Chiefs. Everyone loved it, but looking around me a riot was the last thing people were going to do here! An excellent set by them.
Retrobution are a five-piece band based in and around Milton Keynes in the UK - a classic line up of four instrumentalists, with female lead vocals plus a heap of well-known songs have resulted in a loyal following.
We originally formed in Summer 2000 almost by accident, during a series of workshops held for local musicians at The Stables, Wavendon. Following a hugely successful end-of-term gig (where we had everyone dancing in the aisles), we decided to continue with the band that became Retrobution. Countless line up changes later, we're still going strong!
We play cover versions drawn from a wide range of styles - classic songs by the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac sit next to hits by Adele and Kings Of Leon in our song list.
Our second set typically begins with classic soul standards in the style of the Blues Brothers and Commitments, before turning to good old-fashioned rock'n'roll, disco and an anthem or two!
You WILL dance!
