The Retro Rockets (formerly Eddie & the Ecclectics) saga concerns a secret division of the USO (a 50’s/60’s Nostalgia act) who were sent to Skylab in 1976 to entertain the astronauts. However, on the return flight, a freak solar storm created a time dilation which threw them forward into the future of 2018. The crew realize this conundrum but are still only aware of history from their origin point.
The revelations of how history has unfolded are a source of constant befuddlement for the band and amusement for audiences of all ages. Studio 308 will be presenting regular performances of the Retro Rockets on a monthly basis. Shows will usually be the 4th Saturday of the month.
Tickets for shows can be reserved and paid for at 918-329-0224. For more information, email info@Studio308Tulsa.com.

Comments from happy fans:
The year was 1955, and we were starting the 7th grade. The bus arrived. It looked different, with lots of chrome, and white sidewall tires. The driver looked like Chuck Berry. “Y’all git on,” he said…and we did. The bus was crowded with older people, and then they started singing. “Pop” artists sang love songs. Quartets sang catchy tunes, And, Little Richard, Jerry Lee, and Chuck introduced us to something new called Rock and Roll. The bus would pick up more riders. Elvis, Buddy Holly, James Brown…even the “genius,” Ray Charles. We never got off that bus.
So now the Retro Rockets return to earth, bringing back the joys and the bittersweet emotions of that wonderful bus ride. And, they have no idea how we are affected. Loves found and lost, memories of departed friends, and those special years in school are suddenly recalled. You see it in the misty eyes of the audience and dancers, who are overwhelmed by the accurate and very professional presentation. You all all very meaningful to us, like a family. We all thank you from our hearts.
