Tell us about your music career, band name, musical background, experience and skills.

The Retroaction brings the gritty groove of the 60s and 70s to the modern day. In 2016 the band won the “Best New Group Award” at the Hamilton Music Awards. Keith Mosfet and Thomas Duxbury originally started playing together as a backing band for a local songwriter with Thomas on Bass but eventually decided to form their own band. Soon after Charles Kostash joined on bass along with Raul Gutierrez on drums.

Collectively the band is inspired by groups such as The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, along with newer groups such as Arctic Monkeys, The Orwells, Black Keys, Alvvays and The White Stripes.
