Electric Avenue ‘The 80’s MTV Experience’ | Asheville Music Hall
Friday August 30 @ 9:00 pm - 2:00 am
Show: 9PM (Doors: 8PM)
Barring the invention of time travel, Electric Avenue is, hands down, the most accurate and exciting 80’s Pop Tribute you’re going to find anywhere this side of1988. A high-definition snapshot of an era when vintage synthesizers and drum machines were at the top of the food chain, a thing called Radio.
Having been invited to share stages from Los Angeles to Tampa, Bahamas to Jamaica, by the likes of Pat Benatar, Kid Rock, Bobby Kimball (Toto), Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla, and at sea on the Walking Dead Cast Cruise, Kid Rocks ‘lucky 7th annual’ Chillin The Most Cruise and the Gronk Cruise with Rob Gronkowski (New England Patriots), Electric Avenue knows how to take nothing seriously except for the songs. You know, the ones they had absolutely nothing to do with writing? Yup… those songs.
Electric Avenue delivers spot-on renditions of Tears for Fears, Level 42, Naked Eyes, Soft Cell, Simple Minds, Duran Duran, Wham!, Kenny Loggins, INXS, The Clash, OMD, and more. Enough songs and memories to ensure that you are the star of your own John Hughes film!
As a result of their high level of musicianship and a totally tubular 80’s attitude… it’s no surprise the members of Electric Avenue have found themselves on stages and in studios beside members of:
Toto, Loverboy, Jellyfish, Emmy Lou Harris, Idina Menzel, Alanis Morissette, Daniel Lanois, Brian Blade, Noel Gallagher, Little River Band, Daughtry, Player, Neil Finn, Don Henley, Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, RENT (The Musical), Kristian Bush, Sugarland, Train, Robbie Dupree, Brantley Gilbert, Michael Buble, John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, Devo, Nine Inch Nails, B-52s, Boston, Collective Soul, Billy Currington, Mother’s Finest, Sister Hazel, Lionel Richie, Paul Simon, Yanni, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Janes Addiction, Yellowcard, Boyz II Men, India Arie… to name a few.
Unless you have a Delorean with a fully charged Flux Capacitor… you’re not going to find a more authentic 80’s Pop Tribute in the known universe.
