Retro Vertigo, an 80s cover-band comprised of members from the Upstate of South Carolina, rocks the stage with more than just music. Band members Anthony Tomlinson, Pat Hindman, Marlon Slater, Brian Peck, and Rippin’ Richie bring a contagious energy and professionalism to the stage that draws crowds in for sing-alongs and dancing at venues all over the Upstate.
Songs like “Hungry Like the Wolf” by Duran Duran, “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell, “Whip It” by Devo, and “My Sharona” by the Knack are just a few of the hit songs that Retro Vertigo covers in their high-energy shows.
More than just music, Retro Vertigo brings an entire show to their audience. Bassist Rippin’ Richie is known to entertain crowds with break dancing. Intermissions are also part of the show as scenes from popular 80s movies are often shown.
Some cover-bands play variations of familiar songs, but Retro Vertigo plays it just like you remember. They are more than just a band; Retro Vertigo is comprised of professional musicians that bring the highest quality showmanship and talent to their audiences.
