THE DETROIT RETRO SOCIETY BRINGS THE HEAT TO SUMMER FESTIVALS AND EVENTS

MORE THAN JUST A BAND: COMMUNITY

The Detroit Retro Society team spent the summer bringing the musical heat to a number of municipal concert series, festivals and events all over Michigan. The City of Novi tapped our team to re-envision their celebration of Veterans, a veteran walk with a BBQ dinner was capped off with patriotic and celebratory sounds of the DRS small band in Fuerst Park. In Heritage Park for the City of Canton, the team delivered a danceable evening of modern and retro sounds. Other notable shows included performances for the City of St. John’s Summer Concert Series, City of West Bloomfield Senior Lunch, an all-out dance party with the full DETROIT MUSIC: PAST TO PRESENT cast in Riverside Park in Auburn Hills, a massive retro street party at Royal Oak’s Summer Concert Series with special guest Brian Vander Ark from The Verve Pipe, and many more!

CASE STUDY: NATIONAL CORPORATE SHOW

GOLDMAN SACHS 10,000 SMALL BUSINESS SUMMIT – WASHINGTON D.C.

902774F5-197D-4B7B-82DD-E39188C09060

MORE THAN JUST A BAND: FAMILY

The Detroit Retro Society was recently asked to from produce the  music at the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Summit in Washington D.C.,the country’s largest gathering of small business ownership ever. Our team produced the music for 2500 small business owners, celebrities, business and political leadership, a former President and even got a shout out from the stage from an Iron Chef. 

We provided hype music as attendees entered the plenary, as well as play on music for dignitaries such as, John Rogers, Michael Bloomberg, Ali Webb, Rebecca Minkof, Iron Chef Marcus Samuelsson, Adam Grant, Senator Tim Scott, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Amen Bhutani, Gwenyth Paltrow, Chris Paul, David Solomon, Warren Buffett and George W. Bush. The team was tasked with preparing special songs for each dignitary as well and a custom “hype” song to get the crowd excited for the day. 
 
It took two rehearsal days of long hours and technical rehearsals in Washington DC to pull off but even after all of that, our team all went out to dinner and karaoke together.  Our team showed DC that we are  more than a just a band, we are a family and that love for each other and positivity can’t help but be infectious to audiences of all sizes.

CASE STUDY: PRIVATE CHARITY HOUSE PARTY

THE BÄRTFIELDINGER TRIO BRINGS THE VIBE TO “REAL MEN WEAR PINK”

MORE THAN JUST A BAND: A VIBE

The Detroit Retro Society team has a ton of options when it comes to music styles, band size, and personnel choices. One such sub-group of the team is The Bärtfieldinger Trio. Comprised of three of Michigan’s music accomplished musicians, this team has decades of experience choosing and performing jazz, cocktail hour, jazz concert and special event music to entertain and delight audiences near and far. 

Music sets the vibe and lets the event attendees settle in to a relaxing and celebratory mood, but it’s not the only piece of the equation. Sometimes the room needs to look the part as well. On this event for a “Real Men Wear Pink” private charity fundraiser party, our team was struck by the beauty of the space for the event when they walked through for a site visit. They easily could have brought instruments, played some music and left… but their years of experience in planning and producing events kicked in. They made some simple suggestions about room set up, band placement, the use of the owner’s piano, and most importantly, LIGHTING. Having all of the production equipment for events big and small, the team brought a truck load of extra lights, a PA system for the charity auction, and set the VIBE for the party from the moment the attendees arrived until the time they left that fit the pink theme, delighted the attendees and helped the event be a success for the charity.

If you need suggestions for amplifying your events’ vibe, don’t be afraid to reach out to our team!
