The Adventures Of Duane & BrandO FINAL SHOW!
So how does Retro: Kimmer end up at Duane and BrandO's final show held at the very cool resale shop Replay Entertainment Exchange in East Lansing? My daughter (really wanted to go) is how I ended up at this show. I decided that if I had to drive all the way up there I might as well work! I didn't think it would have much to do with Retro... but how wrong I was! Everywhere I looked was Retro fab stuff!

This duo rap fun lyrics over retro video game music. Being an old time video gamer I knew most of the songs. The kids just love these guys! Sadly the duo have parted ways and will no longer collaborate together.
I met them both and have no doubt they will both be using their talents to create more fun music in the future. They were both absolutely charming and I loved meeting them.

Lesley's friend Alex came for the Adventure and luckily she is a very talented photographer. She grabbed some shots I missed. Thank you so much Alex!

My flash caught Duane in a very alien light and I think he'd like the eyes!
Lesley filming and DB fan John
John and Lesley both knew every word of every song. All I could think about is how much his looked like AJ Soprano from my favorite HBO show the Sopranos

Just look at Replay's ceiling! I used to own all those records! I especially loved this Lee Michaels record!
Just look at all the cool stuff! Used to be my bedroom wall when I was a teenager!

Cool retro cds, vinyl, video games, clothes. toys and even the balsa airplanes we used to fly around at school before the teacher nabbed it!
Nancy Sinatra retro glorious of course!
One of my favorite songs of all time My Boyfriend's Back!
Oh how I loved going through the vast retro vinyl collection Replay had for sale. I am going to have to buy a turntable again. Haven't had one since the 80's. Bobby Gentry was just unbelievable and just to see her again was wonderful
