About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

80s Gadgets is a fun and entertaining cover band delivering recognizable 80s hits to party-goers throughout the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex. We play a ton of 80s favorites that you know (Crrrrraaack that whip!!) and if you're looking for some variety we can drop in dance songs to enjoy. From 80s pop to new wave to rock and everything in between, 80s Gadgets performs the hottest music from the 80s that you and your guests will love! What makes us different? 1. We all dress up in 80s outfits 2. We tell jokes between songs (we are all stuck in the 80s) and engage w/the audience 3. Our lead singer can REALLY SING WELL 4. We are easy to work with, super flexible 5. We adorn the stage with all kinds of fun 80s paraphernalia (think E.T., Alf, and larger-than-life Rubik's Cube) 6. We actually play the songs live on real instruments and not tracks (some bands rely on karaoke tracks to play along to -- but we're 100% instruments). 7. We are FUN! We have experience playing for all kinds of special events, including: - corporate events - birthday parties - festivals / city events / concert series - block parties - bars and clubs - wedding receptions - reunions - hotel entertainment - outdoor BBQs - tailgating parties - graduation parties - grand openings - fundraisers We provide all professional sound equipment (for crowds of up to 500) and we can include stage lighting at no additional charge. 80s Gadgets include: Sandy Smith – Lead Vocal Tory Glen Smith – Lead Guitar / Backup vocal Ben Smith – Bass Adam Wyse – Keyboard / Backup Vocal Bruce Ogletree - Drums / Backup vocal Dedicated sound guy --------------- Band Bio: DFW’s fun 80s cover band, 80s Gadgets, was formed to pay tribute to a fun decade of music that pushed the limits. The Gadgets were heavily influenced from watching MTV in the early days, where they witnessed big hair, larger-than-life synthesized sounds, massive makeup (on both men and women), and mainstream pop melodies that would always leave behind and earworm. Brothers Tory Glen Smith (lead guitar), and Sandy Smith (lead vocals) banded together with their talented musician friends where they could re-live their childhood memories and entertain crowds in a fun, light-hearted way. 80s Gadgets spans a variety of 80s rock (e.g. Billy Idol, Queen), pop (e.g. Prince, George Michael), new wave (e.g. The Cure, Duran Duran) and even the one-hit wonders (e.g. Devo) that we all know and love.

Review by Danielle S.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on January 14, 2023From Bedford, TX

The 80s Gadgets were a big hit at my husband’s 40th birthday party. They were dressed in full 80s gear & had lots of energy! Tory is the band manager & coordinator. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was punctual to our meetings and made great suggestions on stage/band setup specific to the venue. The band has a great line up of popular 80 songs from a variety of different artist. I would definitely recommend the 80s Gadgets!

80s Gadgets:

Thank you for the kind words, Danielle! It was an honor to provide the entertainment for your husband and help make it an event he'll remember for a lifetime. -Tory

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 20, 2022From Plano, TX

We were blown away by this band! So talented. The musician were fantastic and the lead singers voice nailed such a variety of songs. All of our guests raved about it, I got so many texts the next day from friends saying the band was awesome. Their costumes and stage props were that extra little detail that added to the fun. Very professional, great communication, wonderful at interacting with guests as they danced and sage along. They made our event extra special!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on January 12, 2022From Richardson, TX

80s Gadgets was amazing, considering our event had to have a much lower turnout. They are VERY talented, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their performance. We plan to use the again for this event in the future when the world settles down, and plan for a full house. I would highly recommend 80s Gadgets!
