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:
