RETRO DIZZY is a psychedelic surf rock band. Formed in Hermanus, the group now resides in Cape Town and is part of the ever-growing psych, garage and surf scene within The Mother City and since the beginning of 2017, has joined the Jägermeister family as ambassadors.
The band is Nicolaas Rossouw on drums, Stuart Dods on bass and backing vocals, Andre Vlok on guitar and Richard Liefeldt on vocals and guitar.
After performing alongside American pysch and garage rock legends Allah-Las and Black Lips, RETRO DIZZY rounded off 2015 by tearing the Campsite Stage at Rocking The Daisies apart.
They progressed quickly from a more classic rock genre to a more garage and surf orientated sound, evident on their second album, ‘Creatures of the Black Desert’. The album was released in 2015 to much praise with The FUSS calling the album, “One of the best psychedelic albums to ever come out of South Africa.”
Now, with the release of their third album “JUST RELAX”, they’re looking to expand their reach to the rest of the country. A successful nationwide tour in March and performances on The Main Stage at Mieliepop Festival and Lush Festival are just the beginning!
Since the beginning of 2017 RETRO DIZZY has been apart of the Jägermeister family, having been signed to their music program as ambassadors.
“JUST RELAX” is available to purchase at all gigs and festivals and to download and stream across all major digital stores.
