Top retro band Electro 80s turn back the clock when they head for The Studio in Castle Street, Nantwich on Friday.
Gary Numan, The Human League, Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode all helped to create a totally new genre of music – electronica or synth-pop – a futuristic new sound that almost seemed like science fiction at the time.
Electro 80s pay tribute to this era, and have lovingly recreated songs by the aforementioned pioneers and many more to create a live entertainment show sure to transport everyone back to the days of underground club scenes and school discos.
Each member of the trio has his own identity and role within the outfit, which travels all around the North West for gigs.
‘Blue’ is the lead vocalist and frontman, performing the majority of lead vocals, and then keyboards when ‘Green’ occasionally takes over.
‘Green’ is the secondary lead vocalist, keyboard player and guitarist, while ‘Red’ is the main keyboard player and music technologist, and a self-confessed gadget-head specialising in synthesis and sound engineering.
Tickets are £10 on the door.
