Modern Nostalgia is the husband and wife duo of Glenn and Tamara Ireland. Based out of St. Petersburg Florida, Glenn and Tamara specialize in music from the 1970's with a choice range of musical styles from the 1920's and up. We bring back old memories and make new ones!

Modern Nostalgia is ALWAYS fun and ALWAYS interactive!

Accomplished guitarist and singer, Glenn Ireland has an extensive background playing Jazz & Blues in his native area of Cape Cod, MA to fronting his successful cover band, Johnny Opera during the mid 1990's in St Petersburg, FL. Glenn has also played lead guitar for the popular band, Legal Limit, which dominated clubs in the Tampa Bay area for over a decade. He has also worked as lead guitarist and background vocalist for the renowned show band, Late Night Brass. His diverse musical background also includes Rock, Reggae, Country, Pop, Finger Style Jazz, Gospel and more. Glenn has been an adjunct professor at St. Leo University since 2008, teaching guitar and ukulele. Glenn also has the unique ability to emulate any singer from multiple genres such as John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Harry Connick Jr., Neil Young and many more. He is most at home while playing in the duo of "Modern Nostalgia" with his wife, Tamara.

Tamara Ireland plays rhythm guitar, ukulele and percussion & sings lead and harmony. Growing up in a musical family allowed Tam to perform around Tampa Bay & Central Florida as a youngster. She has been entertaining most of her life and enjoys making people happy through music.. Tam has played guitar and sang with several local bands to include Southern Tide Band, One Way Street Band, The Blackburn Family & Southern Gospel Bands. Tam's background extends from Classic to Modern Country, Southern Rock, Pop, Standards, Folk, etc. She captures the vocal styles of Patsy Cline, Cass Elliot, Kathy Mattea and more. For added fun and laughs, Tam plays the ukulele with Glenn. (You'd be surprised at what a ukulele can do!)


"Modern Nostalgia" adds energy & life to any party, private event, house concert, wedding or corporate function by adapting to their audience's reactions. The song list on this site is only a fraction of the songs we know and perform. We always play and sing live, utilizing drum loops on certain selections. Occasionally, we utilize backing tracks depending on client requirements.

(Glenn also performs solo jazz and classical guitar for weddings and intimate functions)

Glenn accommodated all my requests for a corporate function. His equipment and was able to give us the correct sound in spite of a lot of background noise do two portable ACs we had to rent. They guess enjoyed the combination of alternating vocals with instrumental pieces. I hope to use them in future events.
