About 80s ALiVE DUO

Hits of the 1980s with singer Celine and guitarist/singer Cris. Guaranteed to have you Walking Like an Egyptian and Dancing on the Ceiling!
Pop duo
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Cris and Celine have vast amounts of experience as professional musicians. As a child, Parisian singer Celine dreamed of being a backing dancer for French pop star Claude Francois.... Unfortunately, this could never be, so Celine had to settle for a singing career of her own. A graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, Celine fronted recording and touring group 'Montparnasse' before singing an playing bass in country rock band 'Keep Me Posted'. Also an aerobics instructor, Celine performs with energy, passion and total commitment! Guitarist and singer Cris has been playing 80s covers since the 1980s and figures he's just about got the hang of it now..... Cris began working as a session musician and gigging with bands when he was 15 and has never stopped. As well as performing and recording professionally in most styles, Cris was a national Guitarist of the Year finalist in 2003 and performed at the International Gypsy Guitar Festival fronting Django Reinhardt style group 'Trio Rosbifs'. From the local pub to the Royal Albert Hall, Cris has performed in just about every type of venue. As 80s Alive Duo, Celine and Cris provide a totally professional performance with full PA and stage lighting, top quality equipment and bags of energy and enthusiasm. 80s ALiVE provide a full band sound: Live male and female vocals, live guitar and custom full band backing tracks.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We're quite unusual as 80s bands go. We don't treat the songs as museum pieces so perform them with the passion and power we'd put into any great songs. And since we were there in the 80s, we cherry pick the very best music from the era, not necessarily just what gets played on revival radio shows.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We've played at countless venues including theatre concerts (eg. MAC Birmingham, Townsend Hall, Chapel Arts Centre (Bath)) and festivals (including Upton Nantwich). We've also played weddings and birthday parties at a variety of function rooms.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We have a love of all great 80s music, but our very favourites are artists such as Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, Prince and Blondie. Guitarist Cris has a long history of playing the music of Django Reinhardt including at the International Gypsy Guitar Festival and Birmingham Town Hall.

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

In May 2023 we performed at the Duran Duran after show party in Birmingham.

Do you have different line-up options?

We always play as a duo. Live female and male vocals along with high quality backing tracks.

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

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

Yes - we're very happy to play music between our sets. We have an 80s playlist lined up for this.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can you roam around while you perform?

No - we stay on the performance area to minimise the possibilities of feedback from the microphones.

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

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

Yes - up to an audience of 150, we can provide excellent PA cover. For bigger events, we'd need to hire PA equipment and a sound engineer. We can provide a quote for this.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We generally perform the songs we've rehearsed and performed hundreds of times. However, we're happy to learn a song or two for special events if they're within our range (probably!) and we have plenty of notice. Please contact us.
