This band of seasoned musicians recreates the sounds of the 1980's; a day when Ronald Reagan was President, M-TV first aired, CDs emerged, Acid Washed jeans were "cool" and alternative music was called "New Wave". This period has resurfaced in today's entertainment industry. VH-1 has multiple segments echoing the 80's Video Generation, radio stations across the U.S. feature artists from the 1980's in daily "flashback" programs while 2012 is the year of the '80s remake at the multiplex.
The Atari Age members have achieved "headline status" in both nightclubs and concert venues throughout the Midwest. The founding members, after a brief hiatus, have reunited in the winter of 2009 to wave the 80's flag.
In the corporate setting, the band is experienced in private gatherings, wedding receptions and holiday parties.
The Atari Age's stage show creates a party atmosphere filled with fun college and high school memories. Throughout a performance, the band changes lead vocalists and plays special requests from the 80's. Musical selections although diverse in style, all share the "common thread" of success during the 80's decade.
