1980s Themed Artists & Bands
Michael Jackson, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Prince, and Lionel Richie were all major players during this incredible decade. Each artist used ever more inventive ways to redefine their genre and get crowds on their feet. The success of albums like Thriller, True Blue, and Whitney speak for themselves while singles from this decade are at home in clubs, at birthday parties, and at corporate events. The 1980s are also well-known for the rise of digital recording and synthesizers. Artists such as Gary Numan and Adam Ant among many others looked beyond traditional instruments to experiment with form, sound, and style. These cutting-edge musicians have unified fans young and old, with the humble synthesizer being a common element of 80s music.
