We run a small pub in Oxford and were looking for a good local band to help us celebrate our 150th birthday. We’d seen the guys from Weekend Retro Team play before and after contacting them they came in to talk to us about our requirements and get a feel for what type of set we wanted. They came and played two sets packed wall to wall with songs that were effectively the soundtrack of our lives and were brilliant from the start of the process to the end of the night when they were taking their bows from a delighted audience. And being fantastic musicians and people, they came back a few weeks later to play a very special Charity night for a local cause, where (if they could) they played even better than the first time here. All in all, we’d recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone in the Oxford area who’s looking for a good solid band to rock out to over an evening. Thank you WRT!

Loved you guys at the Beer Festival. Seven Nation Army was brilliant.
