As with many artists, Rettig has been behind the Los Angeles music scene for years. His concerts have sold-out venues for two decades. His mysterious persona knocks out standing room audiences alerted to his performances with only a moments notice -- and only by word of mouth. Relatively unknown in the face of the huge music machine, his message is simple and wholesome American music -- melodic and true -- to those wonderful people who choose to sit back, turn off the clock, dance and enjoy the real deal. His elegant presentation has blossomed over the years and his rustic voice has entertained the likes of Elton John, Muddy Waters, Greg Allman, Cheap Trick and probably your next door neighbor. He is a tireless hard worker and his piano sings the song of all ages. Very few Los Angeles musicians have not accompanied this man -- or watched an evening of Rettig rip across a landscape of pure emotion -- before he disappears back into the LA night skyline. 'Perhaps,' as he says, 'I'll be lucky enough to romance the city this very evening and kiss the face of rock n' roll.' As for you the reader, perhaps you too will drift upon the strange and soulful Mr. Rettig on some moonlit smokey evening of rockn' jazz and down-home boogie blues. Indulge yourself -- brush against pure entertainment from the heart and soul of an authentic American poet, songwriter and inexplicable talent. By the way, bring your dancin' shoes. The room is never still.
