The house lights go dim as glasses clink and a hush of excitement gives way to a burst of light, energy and sound and the band breaks right into "Let's Dance" by David Bowie. Guests immediately spring up and charge for the dance floor. Immediately after deft execution of the popular tune, the band breaks into "You Spin Me Right Round", then another, and another and more dancers join in. The party ramps up like a jet liner leaving the runway as rounds of drinks are ordered and the sensational band plays on. "How does a three-piece make such a big sound?" Asks a tall woman as she kicks off her heals and joins the fun. Now at cruising altitude, The band softly caresses "With Or Without You" by U2 as the crowd swoons with nostalgic bliss. "Where did you find these guys?" asks your oldest friend "Were they expensive?". You just smile back at him, knowing that hiring a smaller band has economic advantages too. Now what's this? The bass player getting everybody to buy shots of Irish whiskey to toast as they go into (I'm Gonna Be) 500 Miles by The Proclaimers. When the band breaks it is just long enough to satisfy their thirst and get ready for more. The end of the evening arrives fast, as the band swiftly strikes the stage so the staff can go home on time after one of the best nights they will remember working. Yay 80's! Yay New Wave Crave!
About the band mates:
Clean-cut front man Justin just stepped out of a time machine At just 35 years old, his passion for 80's new wave music started when he raided his uncle's record collection-- and he's still at it. His appreciation for detail shines through as he recaptures vocal and guitar nuances resulting in passionate performances that leave audiences spellbound.
Damian plays a Steinberger bass. Yes, the one that looks like a black boat oar that's the equivalent to an 80's key-tar. He's thrilled to feel the songs of his boyhood emanating through his fingers as he leaps around the stage, taking breaks between songs to entertain the crowd with 80's voice impressions the likes of Ronald Regan, Jack Nicholson and Christopher Walken.
Silas the drummer is never too loud and never too soft. He's... just right! With a vocal range his band mates can't touch, he's steady as the romance plot in a John Hughes movie. Dancers that don't know why they love this band love Silas.
