About the Band

The M-80s is a theatrical power pop rock band specializing in New Wave music from the 1980s. Evocative of the era, the M-80s band plays music of the Cars, Cyndi Lauper, the B-52s, Blondie, Devo, the Pretenders, Talking Heads and much more.

Uncompromising in style and substance, the M-80s band is comprised of some of the most talented and experienced performers in the area.

With a concentration on music that is as fun to dance to as it is to listen, the M-80s are perfect for special events, festivals, parties and galas. The band is visually stunning as the music is infectious!

This isn’t just another band specializing in general music of the 1980s—the M-80s is a tribute band to the power pop post-punk music called “new wave.” No big hair; no metal; no fluff—just that delightfully quirky rock that changed the world of music after disco died.
