New Orleans’ own The RetroSpex are a retrospective of rock and roll, rhythm and blues and classic rock, playing hits from the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s & more. The band features fierce vocals and jamming beats meant to keep audiences moving and on their feet for the entire show.


Originally formed in New Orleans by drummer Vic Cangelosi, the band features Vic, Sophia Hall on vocals, Brendon Comer on Bass, Chris Primm on lead guitar, Alan Bailey on keyboards, Jonathan Martin on trumpet, and Herb Borne on sax.


Sophia commandeers the stage with her powerful vocal range and performance, backed by a rhythm section as solid as they come. The band moves seamlessly from Tracy Chapman to the Beatles, from Elvis Presley to 4 Non Blondes, and from Wilson Pickett to Tom Petty and Joe Cocker.


The perfect band for weddings, festivals, corporate parties and more, the RetroSpex can be found playing regularly at BMC, The Old Point Bar, Rivershack Gretna, Felix’s and Marie’s Bar.
