Planet 80

Planet 80 are an experienced five piece (plus sound engineer) tribute to the great music of the 80s. 
 
Formed specifically for the corporate/private sector with the intention to carry on a tradition of keeping alive the spirit of the 80s, Planet 80 are the perfect choice for any party, event or function. 
 
Within the group there is vast experience with members having played all over the UK and abroad in as many types of situations and venues as you can think of, from boat parties on the Thames to someone’s front living room there really is no show too big or too small. Some of the performances have included either working for or with some high profile celebrity names such as the legendary Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet fame and John Galliano, Kate Moss and Heidi Klum of the fashion world. 
 
Planet 80 cover hits from great artists and bands from the decade such as Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, Queen, U2, Simple Minds, Nick Kershaw, Paul Young to name but a few. 
 
The usual show format is 2 x 45min sets plus one or two encores. 
A full p.a. system with sound engineer is provided within the fee as is stage lighting for the band. 
 
Music between sets can be provided which consists of a popular mix of 80s classics stored on laptop and played through the pa system for the guests enjoyment. 
 
So order yourself a Tequila Sunrise and prepare to be transported back to a time when hair styles were highly flammable and mobile phones were the size of an average family car!...welcome to Planet 80.
