ABOUT

We are an 80's cover band that plays all genres of music with the goal of sharing guilty pleasures from the past and getting people on the dance floor! The band skill level is intermediate to advanced depending on the position. We have a great singer so we can tackle harder to sing songs that people don't admit that they like - i.e. rock ballads and slow jams. We are a cover band that is focused on playing those guilty pleasures from the 80’s that don't get a lot of play from other 80's cover bands.

Members Of Band

Are you a keyboard player with an invisible touch?

We are looking for a keyboard player to meet once every two weeks to practice the songs and to tighten up how we sound. Many of the songs from the 80’s have tons of keyboards so you will be playing an important role in the band. We are looking for someone who is collaborative and fun. It is a plus if you have a wide variety of synth songs or can replicate the songs we are covering.

Commitment Level - We are all very committed to the band, but we are ages 41-55 and all have careers and/or families. We practice twice a month and when Covid let's up we are looking at replacing practicing with gig'ing. Realistically we are only playing 2-3 times month because of our other responsibilities. We are a good group of people that are emotionally intelligent and are easy to get along with. We understand you have a life and this is one of many things you have going for you. If you are in the same place in life where you want to join a fun 80's cover band but you have other commitments than please drop me a call.
