RAVERS! 80’S UK SOUL Dance Party features a dream team of some of the DMV’s most accomplished bandleaders, vocalists & musicians who grew up on this music. An all-star 11 piece band with horn section features 6 different lead singers to capture all of the excitement & energy of the diverse sounds that started in England like wildfires and quickly spread around the world. Songs like; Mirror in the Bathroom, Good Thing, Ashes to Ashes, Our House, Shock The Monkey, Tempted, One World & Every Day I Write the Book, lit up dance floors and the charts and found their way into countless hearts.
The 80’s catch a lot of flak and deservedly so, if only for the tragic hairstyles. But lost in the poufy locks, and musical cheese was the fact that new exciting records were coming out of England in the first half of the decade in droves. The sounds and bands were undeniably brilliant, eclectic, and like the best popular music, made you want to move and dance. RAVERS! UK SOUL Dance Party is an inspiring way to revisit some of the greatest music ever via brilliant live performances by DC’s finest musicians.
