Influences & Inspiration
As artists, our mandate is to provide a Live 80's Dance Music party featuring the best of New Wave and Post-Punk; a period in musical history that began around 1978 and ended around 1985.
Artists who rose to prominence during that period of time included chart-topping bands like Duran Duran, The Fixx, Split Enz, Prince, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Gary Numan, The Cars, Flock of Seagulls, Modern English, The Knack, Depeche Mode, ABC, and The Monks.
A significant influence on us as Canadian musicians was the prominence of Canadian bands that were on heavy rotation on MuchMusic in the early 1980's: The Spoons, Corey Hart, Boys Brigade, Tom Cochrane & Red Rider, and Men Without Hats. Canadian New Wave hits are staples of our shows!
We can provide all equipment, including PA and lighting.
