Electro 80’s (Also Known As: E80’s) are a 1980’s Electronica Tribute band from Merseyside. The band play live shows all over the country from Glasgow to London and are steadily building a large following of dedicated fans. 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 / frontman, Green is the second vocalist / guitarist / keyboard player and Red is the main keyboard player / backing vocalist. More information on the individual band members (and other people involved with Electro 80’s) can be found via the links to the left of this text. 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

PREPARATION
It was decided early on that the new band would focus on what some consider being the “more serious” side of the eighties and avoid some of the musical moments most of us (and the decade) would rather forget. With this in mind, the band would become an electronica tribute and attempt 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 wanting a nostalgic live entertainment show, 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 to the set.

Next up was the lights; a process we foolishly thought would take a couple of weeks, but ended up taking several months. Each scene was 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 FUTURE
With this website having over 2 million hits, two albums, the release of the band’s first live DVD (Electro 80’s live at The Box), the audiences and fan base are starting to increase, the band is moving into larger venues, has opened an online shop 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 bands, it’s no wonder that there are an influx of similar bands starting to appear up and down the country. However, there’s a strong team of people behind Electro 80’s, a team dedicated to maintaining the fact that the often imitated, will remain The UK’s Premier 1980’s Electronica Tribute Band for a very long time to come.
