– BIO 2018 –
Barring the invention of time travel, Electric Avenue is, hands down, the most accurate and exciting 80’s Pop Tribute you’re going to find anywhere this side of 1988. A high-definition snapshot of an era when vintage synthesizers and drum machines were at the top of the food chain, a thing called Radio.
Having been invited to share stages from Los Angeles to Tampa, Bahamas to Jamaica, by the likes of Pat Benatar, Kid Rock, Bobby Kimball (Toto), Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla, and at sea on the Walking Dead Cast Cruise, Kid Rocks ‘lucky 7th Annual’ Chillin The Most Cruise, The Pitbull Cruise and the Gronk Cruise with Rob Gronkowski (New England Patriots). They were also bestowed the honor of being the final band to ever perform at Turner Field. A private show for the Atlanta Braves and their Game Day Staff is not something this band takes lightly, let alone being allowed to run the bases! Awesome.
Electric Avenue delivers spot-on renditions of Tears for Fears, Wham!, Duran Duran, Simple Minds, Howard Jones, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Level 42, Naked Eyes, Soft Cell, Kenny Loggins, INXS, Prince, The Clash, OMD, David Bowie and more. Enough songs and memories to ensure that you are the star of your own John Hughes film!
With these 20 year touring veterans all in one band, it’s no wonder that you’ve seen them on stages or in studios beside members of Toto, Loverboy, Jellyfish, Emmy Lou Harris, Idina Menzel, Alanis Morissette, Daniel Lanois, Brian Blade, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Little River Band, Daughtry, Player, Neil Finn, Don Henley, Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, RENT (The Musical), Kristian Bush, Sugarland, Train, Robbie Dupree, Brantley Gilbert, Michael Buble, John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, Nickelback, B-52s, Boston, Collective Soul, Billy Currington, Mother's Finest, Sister Hazel, Lionel Richie, Paul Simon, Yanni, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Janes Addiction, Yellowcard, Boyz II Men & India Arie.
Unless you have a DeLorean with a fully charged Flux Capacitor, you’re not going to find a more authentic 80’s Pop Tribute in the known universe.
