Retrofit at Beauvoir Park! We are stoked to welcome Retrofit to the #crosscutstage!! Please join us as they bring their rythmic Nola sound to Beauvoir Park on Friday, November 27th at 7:30pm! Grant Hudson – guitar & vocals Scott Graves – drums, cymbals & percussion Christopher DiBenedetto – keys & vocals Oliver Watkinson – bass, synth & vocals Bio: In the heat of the New Orleans summer, four musicians decided to put their they love to the people they love. The result was Retrofit, a dare-devil birthed to create ear-catching melodies and a blend of bold flavors that everyone can enjoy. Inspired by the rhythmic nature of the Big Easy along with the rich musical heritage of the Louisiana, them boys simply had to open their ears to let in the music that has inspired their signature sound. Songwriter and vocalist Christopher DiBenedetto (Gravy, Strange Roux), has taken his influence from memories of growing up in this flavorful south Louisiana region. Putting them into stories of love, redemption, and self-discovery with a unique twang that sticks with the listener through and true. With roots all forms of Soul music, Retrofit seeks to create sound waves to revive the spirits of its audience. The group started by making a one night trip to Pensacola, Florida to play an opening slot for a friends band in the area. After enjoying the set and coming together as a group, they couldn't resist but to make it official. Today, Retrofit plays locally around their hometown in New Orleans, while continuing to tour the southern region. Having released their debut EP Be Easy in December of 2017, the quartet is beyond thrilled to spread the same love they've received from the city that has inspired them so much. Retrofit has played at such New Orleans venues a 30/90, Banks Street Bar & Grill, GasaGasa, Le Bon Temps Roule, Troubadour Hotel, The Basin Lounge, Oak Wine Bar, Rare Form, and the 2019 Banks Street Festival. In Baton Rouge the boys have played the Spanish Moon, Hartley/Vey Theater, Huey’s Bar, Lock & Key Whiskey Bar, and at the 2018 annual North Gate Festival. Retrofit has shared the stage with Motel Radio, Mia Borders, Roadside Glorious, Naughty Professor, Miss Mojo, The Quickening, Darcy Malone & the Tangle, Daria the HipDrops, Lilli Lewis Project, Burris, Dubya, Allie Porter Band, Marina Orchestra, Captain Green, Brass Mimosa and more ---------------------------------------- We are beyond excited to start opening things back up in a responsible way per the state's guidelines and will be implementing some safety measures of our own to ensure the safety of our musicians and guests!
