Wonderful experience with these guys! They emailed with us and with the hostess at our event venue to make sure everything was in order and songs we loved would be included, showed up two hours before the event to set up and really got the party going. They just have great energy and personalities and kindly accommodated requests, from Depeche Mode to Metallica. They were so good and lively that people kept coming down from the restaurant to our party room to check them out. Thank you, Anthony and gang! Highly recommended and would def hire them again.
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.
