Retrocity (re-tró-ci-ty ; rhymes w. “velocity”)
Eight totally rad singers electric boogaloo their way through your favourite tunes from the 80s and beyond, without a Casio or drum machine in sight. Retrocity was born 1998, when a group of graduates from a collegiate vocal ensemble decided to form an a cappella band devoted to the music of their misspent youth. What started as a one-night-only concert turned into a double decade phenomenon that continues to hit audiences squarely in their nostalgia cortex. Retrocity has since expanded its repertoire to cover musical vintages of all kinds from jazz to soul to funk... but the group’s heart still belongs to the Me Decade. The bold, textured a cappella arrangements capture an astonishing range of instrumental imitation. Righteous guitar riffs, sensual sax solos, dope drum beats and sizzling synths… all performed with the human voice. From Sting to Salt ‘n Pepa, nobody delivers a blast of tubular tuneage like Retrocity.
