Back To 80s 5-11 piece fully ‘live function band’ covering Lost In Music, Disco Inferno, Licensed To Lounge, Promise, Best Of British, Shaken Not Stirred & Skool Roolz sets. Jamie Oliver, whose party they played, called them “AMAZING” which was very nice of him.
Lots of stage lighting as well to make sure they can be seen. The Back To 80s band mainly play a brilliant live party set called Lost In Music, with all the songs segued together so there’s just no excuse to leave the dance-floor. But they also play a 1970s disco show called Disco Inferno 5-8 piece male / female fronted fully live 1980s tribute, fully costumed.
The band consists of drums, bass, keys, guitar, male lead vocal and female lead vocal. PA used is 3.1k of fantastic quality stuff including wireless mics and In-Ear Monitoring ….and lots of spare stuff to cope with any Plan B requirement. It looks new and sounds utterly fab. All of the gear is PAT tested every year and Public Liability Insurance is for £10 million.
Back To 80s Band Skool Roolz
Licensed To Lounge 3-piece lounge / cocktail set, playing chilled out versions of rock & dance hits. Songs like Price Tag, Chasing Cars, Mr Brightside, Valerie, Take On Me, Forget You, Livin’ On A Prayer and many other surprises from Radiohead, Taylor Swift, Take That, Coldplay, James Bond themes, etc. All performed with only piano and three vocals. Quite simply – it sounds beautiful. Back To 80s play at corporate functions, weddings, birthdays, both in the UK and abroad…..anywhere you’d expect to find jazz, they’ll be there doing their (rather different, cool and not really jazz) thing.
5-11 piece fully live function band, huge set list! The band can wear silly costumes (1970s, 1980s, Abba etc) if you like, otherwise, they’re dead cool. A sax player or a full 3-piece brass section and 2 extra lead singers can be added to the basic 6-piece line up of drums, bass, keyboards, guitar, and two lead singers (one female, one male).
