About
Based in New York City, 1989 is the ultimate 80s tribute band. The band is comprised of professional musicians who, combined, have played literally thousands of shows coast to coast. 1989's core group is four musicians but, if your budget allows, we have a wide range of other musicians to draw upon to expand the act.

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.

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!!

We hired 1989 for a private function and couldn't have been happier! The band sounded awesome, and they prepared a wide range of songs from the 80's at our request. Each member was super nice and made our evening very enjoyable. These guys sing and play at a high level! I would not hesitate to recommend or hire this band again for another gig.

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.
