The Throwbacks might seem like an odd cover band. Three young guys decided take classic oldies songs from the 1950's and 1960's, and infuse energy and modern song writing into them, to play for audiences who have loved them for decades. Why do this? Having played together for many years, and having grown up listening to the Chicago oldies radio station, these fine gentlemen decided to combine their style of high energy rock with music from a bygone era, to create something unique to the Chicagoland cover scene.
