Retro Express traces its origins back to 2008, when vocalist Felicia Carroll, drummer Paul Weinstein, and keyboardist Vince Rupolo played together in the popular southern Connecticut band Rewind.
In 2010, after the breakup of Rewind, Felicia and Paul forged ahead under a new banner: Retro Express. Rounding out the lineup were guitarist/vocalist John Ferrante, a veteran of the New York music scene, and bassist Colin Hamilton, whose previous bands had been part of the southern Connecticut club scene for over ten years.
In 2012, Vince returned to the fold and the current lineup was born! Retro Express continues to build their reputation as one of the most dynamic, versatile live tribute acts around.
We often hear feedback from our audience telling us how surprised they are at the musical range we cover. That’s because when Retro Express was formed, one of the goals was to bring true variety to the stage. Our lineup includes one female and two male lead vocalists, a talented keyboard player and a powerhouse guitar-bass-drums foundation. This format allows us to cover an incredibly wide spectrum of songs, from classic 60’s pop to album rock, disco, MTV-80s, country, reggae, all the way to the current day!
