Retrovyzor (Originally "Retrovisor") is the musical
project led by the Venezuelan singer, guitarist and
composer Juan Manuel Fernández. The band’s style
has been mutating over the years arriving to what
Fernández calls, Jazz Punk. A mix between Gustavo
Cerati and Jimi Hendrix, along with the musical
freedom obtained after years of studying Jazz
masters such as John Scofield and Miles Davis. The band began in 2014 and from its explosive and well-attended presentations, Juan’s career took significant flight, which has allowed him to cross
geographical borders with upcoming concerts in
2019 across the North, South American and European continent.
Retrovyzor’s debut record, was accompanied by an
illustrated character, an iguana-man, who plays the
role of the protagonist of the songs. This work
consecrated the band as one of the new Venezuelan
musical promises and, was the opening to a desire
for internationalization that took shape after Juan’s
admission to Berklee College Of Music in Boston.
Summer 2019 is going to host Juan's biggest project yet, an international tour titled "La Gira Azul" (The Blue Tour). The name takes after the band's most recent single "Azul", a song meant to bring hope and inspire those who have been separated from their friends and families due to Venezuela's recent exodus. The tour will pass through Spain, USA, Canada, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Perú, Venezuela and México. Retrovyzor has partnered with Alimenta La Solidaridad (A non profit organization in Venezuela who's objective is to feed underprivileged children) in order to sell T-Shirts to raise funds for humanitarian aid for Venezuela.
