Are you a child of the 80's? Remember going to see 'Dirty Dancing' or 'Back To The Future'? Back To The 80's are a live (and very lively) band, all dressed in completely over-the-top 1980's costumes who will take you right back to those times.

They play all the great 1980's party songs from Wham, Madonna, Duran Duran, Cyndie Lauper, Kylie, Madness, Bananarama, Culture Club, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Toni Basil, Kim Wilde, Soft Cell, Katrina & The Waves, Dead Or Alive, Human League and lots more besides.

This band are also proud to play the songs that other bands will not touch with a proverbial bargepole, although 'I Won't Let The Sun Go Down On Me' and 'Fame' always go down like a (another proverbial) house on fire.......Dare we mention 'Making Your Mind Up' or 'Especially For You'? Maybe not, but they'll play them anyway and get you waving your hands in the air and singing along as well!

Here's a list of stuff that you may want to bring along to a Back To The 80s gig:

Big, big hair. And then make it even bigger.
Shoulder pads (as large as possible).
Too much make-up. Even more for the men.
Jacket with rolled-up sleeves and a t-shirt underneath.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles outfit. What do you mean, you've thrown it away?!
....oh, and don't forget your boogie shoes.

"The 80's Tribute band were fantastic from the minute they arrived to leaving. They were professional and fun and kept the party going and everyone on the dance floor. We would definitely book them again. Melanie Branco (19/5/18, school fundraiser, New Milton, Hampshire)"

"What a fantastic evening we all had last night at the DragonBall in St Albans. The Band were superb and the dance floor was full all night. We've had such great feedback from everyone and we all had such a great night. Thank you to you all!"

"Excellent group, hit all the right notes, filled the dance floor and played longer than they should have – couldn't have asked for anything more! 50th birthday, Cranleigh, Surrey"

"Thank you very much indeed, both for playing and for indulging the guest who wanted to sing. From the moment you started playing, I’m not sure I’ve seen the dancefloor fill so fast, so you must have done something right! Association of Teachers & Lecturers, party at Arena & Convention Centre (ACC), Liverpool)"

"I am going to write a “formal” thank you to you for your incredible work… but I wanted in this first instance, to just express my personal thanks to you and your fellow musicians for such a fantastic performance last night. Firstly, it was lovely to meet with you all… the feedback regarding your band and the music [already] has been amazing and I will personally be recommending you to all my friends! Thank you for being so flexible, and so accommodating throughout this whole process. It’s not often you get folks doing the conga (twice) during a “Ball”… but you managed it! I am in awe… and very grateful!"

"You were FANTASTIC everyone loved the band especially the 1980s set. And loved the 1st dance even though we actually can't dance!!! Thank you so much! You are all v talented."

"Following our event on Friday I just wanted to send you our thanks. The band were excellent and really met our expectations. It was a muggy evening and many of the guests sat outside which was unfortunate for the band but they plugged away and got people dancing. We will definitely try to use you guys again in the future. Please pass on my thanks to the band and AV guy who was really amenable and thanks for all your planning and organisation. Hope to speak to you again soon!"

"Had these guys play at our wedding last Saturday – absolutely superb, Very tight as a band, classy & professional and had the whole place moving.
