Let's face it, the 1980's were responsible for some truly horrific crimes against fashion: shoulder-pads, leg-warmers, the unforgivable mullet !

What's evident though, now more than ever, is that the 80's provided us with some of the best music ever made. It doesn't seem to matter if you were alive in the decade or not, those songs still resonate with people and trigger a joyous reaction for anyone that hears them.

Auckland band 80sX take the greatest new wave, new romantic and synth pop hits and recreate the magic and sounds of the 80's with brilliant musicianship and high energy vocals.

Adam Jackson takes over male lead vocals for tonights show with a prowling stage presence and dynamite charisma. Adam's performances on-stage give evidence to his huge respect for artists such as David Bowie, Michael Hutchence and Jim Kerr.

Swedish born Caroline Lekstrom applies her sexy, sassy style to all the classic female 80's hits you know and love. A finalist in TV's 'Stars In Their Eyes' in both NZ and her homeland, Caroline has been wowing audiences with her energy and enthusiasm as a part of 80sX in 2016.

Drummer and programmer Andrew Maclaren is the founding member of multi platinum selling band stellar* co-writing mega hits 'Violent', 'All It Takes' and 'Taken' amongst others. During those years he teamed up with Tom Bailey from iconic 80's band The Thompson Twins to produce three albums, winning 11 x NZ music awards, selling over 100,000 albums and touring the world.

Andrew Thorne plays lead guitar and brings a wealth of experience to 80'sX having played all the guitars on Bic Runga's 11 x platinum debut album 'Drive'. He has toured the world with many of New Zealand's leading singer songwriter's including Bic, Dave Dobbyn, Jan Hellriegel, Tim Finn and played support for international acts including Radiohead, Bryan Adams and Jeff Buckley.

Bass player Brett Wells is a Chartered Director and Executive Management Professional with over 25 years operations experience in Webb Group (incorporating the Rockshop; KBB Music; wholesale; service and logistics) and foundation member of the Board. He also sits on the Board of Starjam, a non-profit, which empowers young people with disabilities through music and performance opportunities. A musician since his late teens, he's fortunate to be able to combine his passion for performance with his business interests.

This is not a covers band of journey-men doing their version of well known songs. 80sX recreates the music and sounds of the decade with staggering accuracy and a genuine passion for the music. It's also a really fun night out and the best soundtrack to a party or event you can imagine…
