If you're planning a wedding, corporate event, or private party and want to transport your guests back to the vibrant eras of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, you've come to the right place.  

Here are ten creative ways to nail that nostalgic vibe, brought to you by The Rock & Soul Band, your specialists in providing high-energy music from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. 


1. Select Your Era

Choose whether you want to focus on one specific decade or mix elements from the Motown era, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Each era offers its unique style and flavor. The Rock & Soul Band can customize their setlist to match your chosen theme, making your event truly special.


2. Live Music Magic

Nothing sets the retro mood better than live music. The Rock & Soul Band brings the best of the 70s, 80s, and 90s music to your event. Their high-energy performances will get everyone dancing and create an authentic, nostalgic atmosphere.


3. Retro Decor

Decorate your venue with items that scream retro. For the 70s, think disco balls, lava lamps, and psychedelic patterns. The 80s call for neon colors, geometric shapes, and arcade game setups. The 90s vibe can be set with grunge decor, bean bags, and retro tech gadgets.


4. Costumes and Attire

Encourage your guests to dress in era-appropriate attire. Think bell-bottoms and tie-dye for the 70s, leg warmers and neon for the 80s, and flannel shirts and ripped jeans for the 90s. You could even host a costume contest to add a competitive edge to the fun.


5. Vintage Photo Booth

Set up a photo booth with props and backdrops from your selected decade. Oversized sunglasses, boomboxes, and vintage cars can make for great photos and fun memories. Your guests will love capturing their retro looks.

6. Retro Games and Activities

Incorporate games and activities that were popular during your chosen era. Have a dance-off with 70s disco moves, an 80s arcade game tournament, or a 90s trivia contest. These activities will keep your guests entertained and engaged.

7. Era-Specific Invitations

Start the retro theme from the get-go with themed invitations. Use designs and fonts that reflect your chosen era, and consider including fun phrases and slang from that time period to set the tone for your event.

8. Customized Playlists

Even with a live band, you can create era-specific playlists for breaks or quieter moments. The Rock & Soul Band can play live renditions of classic hits, and our DJ can ensure your song requests are included to maintain the retro vibe throughout your event.  

9. Interactive Experiences

Create interactive experiences such as karaoke with songs from your chosen era, a DIY tie-dye station for the 70s, or a graffiti wall for the 80s. These hands-on activities will make your event more immersive and enjoyable for your guests.

10. Retro Video Projections

Set up video projections of popular movies, TV shows, or music videos from your chosen era. Whether it's 70s disco scenes, 80s music videos, or 90s sitcom clips, these visuals will add an extra layer of nostalgia and entertainment for your guests.
