The Retrolettes, John and Teresa have been performing at private parties/functions, tea dances, festivals, farmers markets and “generally anywhere that will have us over the last 10 years”.
They play a selection of music which is generally light hearted and fun, but mainly 40s/50s popular songs i.e. Inkspots and Andrew Sisters, country music i.e. Tom Waits, Gillian Welsh and Iris Dement, and some fun Irish and traditional songs. They can also be persuaded to play some well known singalong songs from Musicals and wartime classics.
“Playing a Valentines Day gig will be a first for us, and who knows what could happen, given a Headingley audience and a sniff of the barmaids apron…….all dancing styles accepted and expected!”
Donations welcome on the door £3/£5 (no one turned away for lack of funds).
