There is no decade quite as unique and cutting edge as the 1980s. The decade that saw the rise of dance, new wave, glam metal, smooth jazz, and countless other genres continues to have a strong influence on today’s biggest stars.
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.
At the Champions Music and Entertainment agency we have a wide array of acts to help you and your guests relive this incredible era. From famous acts like Lionel Ritchie, Adam Ant, Rod Stewart, The Human League, Mick Hucknall, and A Flock of Seagulls to stellar tribute acts; we have the perfect entertainment for your corporate event, wedding reception, birthday party, or any other public event.
