Response from Left of the Dial:
Thanks for the positive review! We had a great time playing two sets of 80s college rock classics. Everyone there was super helpful and professional. Hope we can do it again next year.
Price Range: Contact for rates
Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
We can play up to 3 (50-minute) sets of music, which can cover a timeframe of 3-4 hours including breaks. Expect a high energy show filled with 80s and 90s nostalgia from one of the most prolific eras of alternative music.
Hello! We play the music we grew up listening to during high school and college. College radio is where you could hear the music of The Replacements, The Pixies, The Smithereens, INXS, The Cure, The Smiths, REM, Hoodoo Gurus, and so many more groups. This covers several genres including "alt-country," punk, new-wave, dark-wave, and rock-n-roll. We try to play as much of a variety from these genres as possible.
Additional Booking Notes
We can provide our own sound, which will cost an extra $200. This is a bargain for sound services. If the venue is larger than 100 people, we would require an outside service. We have 3 vocal mics, two guitars, a bass, and drums. In a larger venue, most likely, everything would need to be mic'ed-up. We require 3 monitor speakers, all stand, and cords. We need at least 1-hour to do a soundcheck prior to the gig. Generally, our sets last 50 minutes with a 10-15 minute break.
