About

Electro 80’s pay tribute to the 80's electronic era, and have lovingly recreated songs by the afore mentioned pioneers (and many more), to create a live entertainment show that is sure to transport everyone from this generation, back to the days of underground club scenes and even school discos.

Unforgettable classics like “Fade to Grey” and “Just Can’t Get Enough” are performed alongside lesser-known tracks, which will jog your memory in a nostalgic show that is both visually and acoustically stunning.

It was decided early on that the new band would focus on what some consider being the “more serious” side of the eighties and avoid some of the musical moments most of us (and the decade) would rather forget.

With this in mind, the band would become an electronica tribute and attempt to recreate some of the classic moments from the early eighties, songs from bands like Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Gary Numan, Duran Duran, Ultravox, Devo, Soft Cell and The Human League. Attention to detail would be the order of the day and what would eventually set Electro 80’s apart from the crowd. The band realised that people wanting a nostalgic live entertainment show, would want to hear perfect recreations of eighties classics and not a particular band’s “interpretation” of them.

The three core members Red, Green & Blue are named after the primary colours commonly used in electronic visual displays (RGB). Blue is the lead vocalist / frontman, Green is the second vocalist / guitarist / keyboard player and Red is the main keyboard player / backing vocalist. Mr Black performs robotics on stage with Electro 80's during certain points of the live set, namely 'The Model', 'Whip it' and 'Are Friends Electric?'

In addition to this trio the band are joined by Mr. Black. His onstage performance amazes audiences with his ability to stand perfectly still for lengthy periods of time (up to 90% of the total live show!), often convincing the crowd that he is in fact, a mannequin! He has certainly seemed to have become a highlight of the show and is greeted with appreciative cheers whenever he activates his motion programs on stage.

Where are they based?

The band are based in Merseyside but play live shows all over the country from Glasgow to London and have steadily built a large following of dedicated fans across the UK.
