1989 was amazing for our event. We had a company holiday party, and they performed for 4 hours. Their song choice was perfect. They had everyone up dancing and and singing. They were also really professional and easy to work with. I'm so glad we hired them, and definitely will hire them again if we have another event that requires a band. Don't hesitate in working with them!!
Rather than don outlandish costumes, 1989 favors a slick new wave image. Our sound is true to the originals, but we apply a modern sensibility to the songs (similar to what Weezer has just done on their Teal Album) to make the songs even more accessible to modern audiences.
There are so many great 80s tunes and only so many that can be played in one night. Accordingly, we favor creating slightly shorter versions of many tunes so that we can play more of the songs you know by heart during any one show. If you have any favorites you'd like to ensure are performed, we're happy to accommodate.
