Here is an interview with vintage wedding band the Retrosettes, who are highly recommended by a previous wedding client.
When did your band form?
Our band formed around 8 years ago.
What style of music do you play?
At weddings we typically play a lot of 50s and 60s pop music, a lot of the British stuff like Beatles, Stones, T-Rex, Animals etc. We play music from all genres and decades, but a lot of it has a 1960s sound.
How do you normally sort the playlist out before the wedding?
We have a playlist that we ask guests to pick their favourites from, we don’t usually want too prescriptive a set list in case we have to adapt on the night to a particular audience. To give the best experience to the bride and groom and wedding guests.
How long does it take for you to get set up?
It typically takes about an hour for us to get set up, it all depends how good the access is at the wedding venue.
How long typically do your sets last?
Normally we play two, one hour sets, which totals 2 hours of live music. In-between sets and after our last set has finished we set up Ipad DJ, normally finishing at around mid night.
Do you specialise in any theme?
Our band specialises in vintage styled/themed weddings. We have many vintage props as part of our set including record players, vintage rugs, suitcases, lamps and are happy to accommodate the bride and groom where possible.
