Retromania salutes the biggest rock stars of the seventies and beyond as a duo of spot-on tribute bands fills the nostalgic night with flattering imitations and number one hits. Handling the reigns of the untamed Fleetwood Mac, the seven-piece full band Dreams has successfully toured exotic lands such as Las Vegas and the Dominican Republic, stuffing grateful ears with impeccable mimicry. Live, the band concocts a familiar set list of classics such as “Don’t Stop” and “Go Your Own Way,” hitting details such as three-part harmonies and Stevie Nicks’ beard with a police sketch artist’s accuracy. Retromania also includes the Tom Petty tribute act Totally Tom Petty, which pays lip and larynx service to the author of hits such as “Free Falling” and “American Girl,” which may be sung as “Canadian Girl” until the lead singer’s passport is renewed. Although not included in today’s Groupon, the Scalia Lounge features a buffet ($14.95) to fuel the sing-alongs of Fleetwood groupies and Petty partisans.
