There are many bands playing tunes from the 80's. The difference is E CAN HIT THE NOTES! No Free Bird. No Brown Eyed Girl. No cry in your beer country songs. No, what you get with E & The Boys is FLASHBACK, FUN, AND A YOUTHFUL NIGHT (or day) OF UN-ABASHED FUN!
BE PREPARED TO PARTY LIKE IT'S 1985! If you want an 80's themed party.... THAT'S WHERE WE STARTED!!! We specialize in 80's music. WE'RE not LIMITED to the 80's, but it is our strong suit.
88 MPH can provide a full PA complete with recorded music before, between sets and after show (you will SWEAR you're listening to your favorite radio station BACK WHEN!
If a DJ is requested we can provide that service as well. Also all lighting & special effects are provided as well if needed.
Shows typically run between three to five 45 minute sets with 15 minute breaks between. Don't worry, BE HAPPY, 'cause the music won't stop! We will keep the tunes rolling as the band recovers! (We are very flexible regarding length and timing of playing time.)
"The Ultimate 80’s & MORE Party Band"
Based in Northwest Arkansas, 88 Miles Per Hour is a band of ADULTS with real jobs, but at night & on the weekends, they break out the AQUA NET and RE-LIVE the big hair days! Fun loving and always entertaining, the band takes its audience BACK IN TIME to days of past. Playing tunes by bands YOU grew up listening to!
In 2009 Robert & Elizabeth Mann started the band with Elizabeth Singing & fronting the band and Robert on guitar.
"We all had to grow up and get real jobs, but we never outgrew our love of music" says Robert Mann. "We all know we're not going to be the next Bon Jovi, but that shouldn't stop us from living the FANTASY on the weekends. Plus we ALL need a way to relieve stress that comes with life in the real world!"
There just aren't many bands out there that play this style of music. There are many bands playing 70's and older music, Modern Metal, and various "indie" groups. 88 MPH focus' on 70's, 80's & current songs that bring back fond memories of the "BIG HAIR" 80's flavored with some butt shakin' current songs.
88 Miles Per Hour has it's own PA, Lights and can provide DJ services if needed.
No party or event is too small or too big. 88 Miles Per Hour is PERFECT for your wedding, party, special event or CLUB!
