Electro 80’s also known As: E80’s is a 1980’s Electronica Tribute band from Merseyside. Their Musical talent and vocals along with creative, electronic style lighting delivers a show that brings back the atmosphere and sounds of the early 1980’s.
The three core members Red, Green & Blue are named after the primary colours commonly used in electronic visual displays (RGB). Blue is the lead vocalist / front man, Green is the second vocalist / guitarist / keyboard player and Red is the main keyboard player / backing vocalist. Electro 80’s formed after all three core members became disillusioned with the “traditional” cabaret club scene. “Red”, “Green” and “Blue” had all been active on the circuit in various other bands and decided it was time to pay tribute to the music they had grown up listening to and loved. They play live shows all over the country from Glasgow to London and are steadily building a large following of dedicated fans.
It was decided early on that the new band would focus on what some consider being the “more serious” side of the eighties. With this in mind, the band became an Electronica tribute and attempted to recreate some of the classic moments from the early eighties, songs from bands like Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Gary Numan, Duran Duran, Ultravox, Devo, Soft Cell and The Human League.
Attention to detail would be the order of the day and what would eventually set Electro 80’s apart from the crowd. The band realised that people wanted a nostalgic live entertainment show and would want to hear perfect recreations of eighties classics and not a particular band’s “interpretation” of them. With this in mind, painstaking work began on recreating each individual sound used on every track featured in the set, a process that would take almost twelve months! Each sound was compared to the original again and again, before being unanimously accepted by the band for inclusion in the set.
Each scene is carefully programmed to be in perfect synchronisation with the dynamics of the live sound, highlighting the different atmospheres and mood of the performance. All in all, programming the lights / digital mixing desk and actually rehearsing the material took almost six months.
The release of the band’s first live DVD Electro 80’s live at The Box, the audiences and fan base is starting to increase, the band is moving into larger venues and plans to produce the first ever Electro 80’s original CD entitled “Transistor”, things certainly seem to moving in the right direction. Electro 80’s are starting to attract a level of attention not normally associated with tribute Band’s.
If you are a fan of the 80’s don’t miss this fantastic band!
