"Epic 80's you are really epic! You put on a tremendous show for my 60th and really personalised the evening. My friends who came to the party have contacted me to indicate their pleasure in your performance. Everyone was up dancing to the music of the 80's and they really enjoyed themselves. We had many musicians at the party who commented positively on the music. What more can you ask. Thank you for all your energy and hard work."
Ethel Trigg, Saltdean
"Darren Soffe and his band Epic80s have entertained guests at two Christmas parties that I have hosted. Dealing with them prior was hassle free with Darren planning ahead to ensure the events ran smoothly. On the night they truly delivered that epic 80's sound that got everyone on the dance floor. I would highly recommend them and intend to engage them again in the future."
