Very professional, showed on time and played great music. We will definitely be hiring them again for future events.
We know you have many choices when it comes to selecting a band for your special day or evening. There is a lot of great competition out there and we are humbled to be listed among them. Here's where we believe that The Obscure80's stands out from the crowd and separates themselves in the best possible ways:
Material: Our list of featured songs isn't all that obscure. Those of us who grew up in Southern California during the heyday of KROQ and 91X will not only know the songs we play, but will be mesmerized by the accuracy with which we re-create them. Everything we play had its moment in the sun. Maybe not on Kasey Kasem's Countdown, but if you watched MTV back when music videos reigned supreme, you'll feel right at home. We also cover quite a large number of "crossover" songs that managed to leap from the underground and become worldwide smash hits. We offer a fresh and exciting mix of the best of the 80s that other period bands simply can't match. We don't play has already been played by dozens of other bands. Let's face it, how many parties or events have you gone to where no matter who was playing, it was the same old songs? Dare to be different. Excite and enamor your guests with a night of music that will flood them with great memories and keep the dancers dancing.
Quality: Our performances speak for themselves. We are dedicated professionals who insist on providing the best we can offer. We are constantly honing our skills and adding new material to our repertoire so that we can offer the widest variety of music with the highest level of entertainment.
Location: We are a San Diego band! This is our home and the place we love. When you submit your requests for bids, you'll notice that the overwhelming number of responses will come from the Los Angeles area. Many of those will also be form "Management" people who are representing several, sometimes more than a dozen different bands under one name. Sure, we'll gladly travel to OC, LA, SF, LV etc. to perform for you, but if you like to support local business in San Diego, we will do everything we can to work within your budget in order to help give back to this wonderful city. We Don't use a management company, we ask very reasonable, even bargain prices for our performances. We can do this, because we aren't in The Obscure80's for the money. We do this out of love and passion for the music we perform and for the joy it brings us to entertain. We are however deeply invested in this project and thus need to ask for a competitive rate to offset our overhead... An overhead that is much lower than a 9-piece band from LA with a manger to pay.
Dedication: We are 100% dedicated to being the best. That means sounding great, looking great and having so much fun that you and your guests will be left feeling great.
We don't do gimmicks; we do the best of the 80s. And we do it better than anyone!
