Rubik’s Cubes, Pac-Man, skinny ties and leg warmers—That 80s Band brings back the sound of the 80s Pop/Rock/New-Wave era. Comprised of Valerie Girl (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Mick Fly (Bass/Vocals), and Izzy Furreel (Lead Guitar/Vocals), and Rod Springfield (Drums/Vocals), That 80s Band is a fun, high-energy recreation of the 80s music scene.
 
This is not a modern version of everyone’s favorite 80s tunes. This is as close to going back in time as humanly possible without a Flux Capacitor and plutonium.
 
The experienced line-up has the capabilities (and gnarly wardrobe) to cover the most popular (Madonna, Rick Springfield) to the nostalgic one-hit wonders (Aha, Tommy Tutone). So, dig out your parachute pants, fingerless gloves, jackets with lots of zippers, practice your moonwalk, and check out this band…They’re like, totally tubular!

Band Members

VALERIE GIRL
vocals/guitar

Good girl. Loves her mama, Jesus, and America, too.
Originally from Reseda.

ROD SPRINGFIELD
drums/electric things

Son of Greek immigrants. Fussy about his hair. Everyone should try his baklava. Rod Springfield is not his real name.

IZZY FURREEL
guitar/vocals

Not a real person.

Mick Fly
bass/vocals

Leads a simple life. Plays bass, paints, grills and chills, man, you know.
