Sounds Retro Duo are two experienced singers/musicians, John Cross and John Watkinson who have performed in various recording bands for many years. They also perform in their own right as solo performers. Travelling all over the world their paths crossed many times and they eventually decided to combine their past experiences and talent to work together to form a duo. Together with their guitar skills and their fabulous close harmonies, they perform a fabulous selection of hits. Also, they have 3 P.A. setups – a small one, a medium one for up to 500 people (dinner dance) and a large one for outside shows. They can cover all events together with some great backing tracks, lights and a little bit of smoke. This combination looks and sounds truly professional.
