“Unsure where to begin... We were let down prior to our big day, by a band that wanted to cash in on COVID. We contacted Alive Network after coming across Retrospect. So glad we secured when we did. Communication, friendliness and the sheer ease of approaching with song requests. Could not fault. Even pulling the first dance song out of the bag! Guys we can't thank you enough. Their energy to party was outstanding. All guests were on their feet dancing the night away, what more could you possibly want!? For anyone looking to party, hard. Secure Retrospect today.
