The Retro Rockets, an ensemble that bills itself as a “Tulsa Space Age Rock & Roll Dance Band,” will perform a special concert to help benefit the Tulsa Area United Way’s efforts to provide relief for those affected by the recent floods.

The all-ages concert will be at 7:30 p.m. June 27 at Studio 308, 308 S. Lansing Ave.

Admission to the concert is free, but donations will be accepted. All donations and a portion of bar sales will go to the Tulsa Area United Way.

The Retro Rockets started out as Eddie and the Ecclectics, which traces its history back to the rock ’n’ roll theatrical revues created by American Theatre Company.

It specializes in music from the 1950s to the 1970s and features some of the city’s best musicians, including vocalist Randi Love, who has performed with Ike Turner, James Brown and B.B King; guitarist Tom Hanford, a longtime collaborator with Dwight Twilley; and multi-instrumentalist Steve Bagsby, whose credits include the Tractors, the Texas Playboys and Roy Clark.
