What to Expect
Audiences will find it hard to keep from dancing and singing along. Jumping on stage and singing into one of our mics is encouraged! A wild assortment of 80's medleys will be served up and a fun time for all ages is a definite.
Take yourself back to a time when life seemed so less complicated. Before dot com. When Filmmaker John Hughes was king and coming -of -age movies ruled the box office. When a person%u2019s biggest dilemma was how to solve the Rubik%u2019s cube.
The time we%u2019re talking about is the 1980%u2019s. A period of new romanticism. When MTV was brand new and was actually dedicated to music videos. On the day it aired The Buggles %u2018Video Killed the Radio Star%u2019 the world changed, and that definitive moment set the course for a decade of great music to follow.
With the 80%u2019s resurgence now in full swing, it seems obvious why Ridgemont High decided to cover nothing but songs from the 1980%u2019s. But, this band was one of the first to bust onto the scene back in 2001 committed to delivering these timeless danceable hits to audiences. Performing songs people remember%u2026 and love.
%u201CIt is so much fun to play a song like %u2018Always Something There to Remind Me%u2019 or 'Tainted Love' and just watch a party break out. The dance floor fills and the audience sings along. It%u2019s awesome!%u201D
%u201CI wanted to put a band together that played songs that I loved, with musicians that shared the same feelings that I had about the music. That way, you never get tired of performing. And you notice this seeing us live.%u201D explains Keith Kozak, bassist and founder of Ridgemont High.
%u201CI especially like seeing peoples%u2019 reactions when they hear us do one of their favorites. They just light up! Or, seeing them high-five their friends when we break into one of our many medleys. %u201CIt makes it all worth while.%u201D says Thom Sacco lead vocalist.
At a time when it seems like a lot of cover bands are jumping on the 80%u2019s bandwagon, Ridgemont High remains authentic, unique and is still satisfying audiences... like they have been for the last 9 years! Whether it be the edgy songs from The Clash or Billy Idol, the pop sounds of The Cars or Squeeze, the synth sounds of Erasure and Flock of Seagulls, or the numerous one-hit wonders, this band takes you on a New- wave -time -warp back to the 80s. Perfectly recreating the music with the right amount of energy injected into their performance.
Imagine, reliving all the fun you had over those ten years... in one night! And-- if you weren't fortunate enough to be out and about in the 80's, Ridgemont High will show you what it was like.
Ridgemont High is a group of musicians who have been playing together, in one form or another, for over 13 years. The band is composed of former members of Bad Biscuit, Hangar 18, and Parlez, and has vast experience playing weddings, private parties, reunions, county fairs, concerts in the park, beach bars, nightclubs, restaurants, casinos, and corporate events.
