    The 80s was the decade of bright personalities, massive hair and outlandish outfits. This anthem era was held up by shoulder pads and glam sensibilities. If your heart truly lies with a good synth riff, wailing guitar solos and a good pair of leather trousers, 80s cover bands are the ones for you! With Synthpop, Electro, House and Techno you can dance, bounce and even headbang your socks off! Throw a bit of glam metal in there or a good sprinkle of early Hip Hop and R&B and you have yourselves and 80s party.

    An 80s tribute band promises to deliver the best 80s experience you can get. If ever there was an excuse to crimp your hair, wear neon and head bang the night away, booking an 80s band through Headliner is it!

    Why book 80s bands?

    Outside of the 80s being an outstanding era in terms of creativity and fun, themed parties are on rise - with 80s events taking the cake. The 80s was a classic decade for pop music in the UK and America.

    80s artists are still popular, having their songs played frequently at parties, including Madonna, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Duran Duran, A-Ha, Wham, The Human League, Prince and the Pet Shop Boys. Booking 1980s bands are the perfect way to show tribute to those great 80s acts.

    80s nights also allow your guests to up the ante with their outfits! You can encourage them to relive their glory days from the 80s in tube socks and neon.

    Throwing an 80s themed party accompanied by an 80s party band will be sure to make your party one to remember.

    Will the bands wear 80s themed clothing?

    It depends on which act you're looking for. Headliner offers acts that go full-on eighties with their appearance. If that's not your style then we also offer acts who cover 80s, but don't provide the full costume experience.

    Should I hire an 80s band for my wedding?

    Why not? Booking an 80s wedding band is sure to touch the heartstrings of your guests, getting everyone up and dancing. If you decide to hire an 80s band for your wedding, many of the bands will work with you to make sure you are able to hand-pick some songs for your special day.

    They can also usually provide a DJ service between sets and afterwards.

    The Band Hiring Guide

    Quality Assurance

    All of Headliner's Artists go through an extensive vetting process before being approved to go live on the platform. This is a measure of quality control issued by a member of the Headliner team. This means when putting through an enquiry to any acts from Headliner, you are working with the best in the business. Led by the highest standards, all of our acts are professional, friendly and experienced. Whether you're looking for a good tribute act who can do a wedding reception or corporate disco (providing a mobile disco hire), Headliner has a huge selection to choose from! Now that's band hire at its finest!

    Genre style and Example Playlists

    In regards to tribute acts, the genre is usually pretty focused on their specialty. However, some acts cover more than one era and will be happy to accommodate what you're looking for. When you're looking for a tribute act, it's recommended that you watch their showreel and listen to their audio tracks. Each act has their own distinctive style that sets them apart from the other acts.

    Our acts also put up example set lists on their Headliner profile to display the types of artists you can expect them to cover.
