Ultimate 80s are an authentic and energetic 5 piece band paying tribute to the best music of the 1980's. Our dynamic and exciting show delivers the best in classic pop hits from the greatest decade of music. With the reformations in the last few years of bands such as Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Ultravox and Yazoo playing to sold-out arena audiences, never has nostalgia for this decade been so prominent: "This is England" and "Ashes to Ashes" have bought the 80's back to our TV screens, whilst 'The Karate Kid' and 'Arthur' movies hit the silver screen to begin a barrage of 80's remakes soon to hit our cinemas. Twentysomethings are also discovering their parents' record collections tucked away in the loft, which has resulted in more turntables being sold over the last two years than CD players, and vinyl sales have been rapidly increasing whilst the CD's declines. Ultimate 80s play up to 2 hours of live music from the New Romantic hits of Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran and Soft Cell, through the soft rock of Simple Minds, INXS and Huey Lewis, to the pop anthems of Wham, A-Ha, Kajagoogoo and Go West. Promotional support is given through the supply of posters, flyers and direct marketing to our fan database. The 80s are back and they're here to stay, so: Put on your red shoes and dance the blues...

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is: Vocals, Keys, Guitar, Bass, and Drums. Depending on availability and space, we have an alternative line-up with just Vocals, Guitar, Bass and Drums.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We will always aim to be as flexible as possible. For the best outcome, please let us know as soon as changes may occur so we can make sure that as many options are available as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We have a pre-recorded mix of 80s pop classics that aren't part of our regular set that we can play through our PA as part of our standard service. To extend this service, please get in touch with your requirements so we can include it in the quote.

How much time do you need to set up?

We would ideally ask for a window of 2 hours to set up and sound check before any guests arrive. Once set up we can then have a pre-recorded mix of 80s tracks playing through the PA ready for when guests arrive.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Unfortunately we cannot offer an acoustic alternative and we do not carry radio mics. Our performance is dynamic, but stage-based.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We've crafted our set list from nearly a decade of live shows and believe that we've found a perfect mix of music to keep all ages and backgrounds on the dance floor. If you have any specific song requirements then please discuss the details with us. Best to keep the tracks 80s though to keep with the rest of the music we play! :)

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

We provide full PA, backline, and lighting in our quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We play, or have previously played, most 80s tracks that you'll expect to hear for a pop tribute to the decade. If you have a specific requirement then let us know and we can advise whether this will be possible.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our dynamic stage presence, song choices, and energy.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We've played at pretty much every major popular music pub and venue across Essex, Hertfordshire, and North Kent.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Anything 80s!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

A couple of times we have headlined the Standford Music Festival.
