The band was formed by good friends who have spent years touring and recording in a variety of musical settings. We love to play music together and have always had a fondness for the music of the 80s. After perusing our LPs for inspiration, the band put together a list of favorite songs and took up the challenge to become the definitive 80s experience.It's All About The Details The synth-based dance music of the 80s is a rich tapestry of sound with layered keyboards, electronic percussion, and highly polished production.
