RETROFETTE: With something for everyone, Retrofette makes music that will make you want to bust out the tracksuit, dust off the Delorean, and dance.” –Bandwagon Magazine August 2016 Denver-based Retrofette is the byproduct of keyboardists Sean Culliton and Xavier Provencher's love for vintage synthesizers and sweaty dance floors. Joined by synth bassist Ben Weirich and drummer Dylan Johnson on stage, the quartet’s brand of 80s tinged synthpop was born in March 2016 and has since garnered a steadfast following.Since its inception, Retrofette released its debut three song I Don’t Mind EP and shared the stage with acts such as Magic Sword, Fever the Ghost, Mark Mallman, and The Other Black. They have played in front of sold out audiences at Denver’s Hi Dive, listed as one of 303 Magazine's top bands at the Underground Music Showcase, and selected as the Best Pop of 2017 act in Colorado by Westword Magazine.
