The Retreads are a vocal/instrumental duo specializing in classic pop tunes that span over half a century. Cofounders Dan Cummings (guitar) and Robert Lipscomb (keyboards) began playing together in the year 2000 and have built a large repertoire of familiar and enduring songs. As a duo or in an expanded five-piece lineup, they have played at county fairs, private events, benefit auctions, and popular Twin Cities destinations including Sea Salt Eatery and Riverview Café. The hallmarks of a Retreads performance are tight vocal harmonies, tasteful instrumentation, and an all-around upbeat and joyful atmosphere.   The Retreads are available for bookings at private parties, banquets, wedding receptions, and other special events to add a great mix of background and featured musical entertainment.
