Flashback To The Eighties band
Flashback To The Eighties is a Midlands-based authentic multi-tribute band performing the very best in 1980's pop - from synthesizer-led new romanticism, via the high-energy sounds of Robert Palmer to the jubilant classic pop of Duran Duran.
They combine the highest levels of musicianship with engaging and energetic live performance to produce a show that brings the sounds and sights of the eighties alive.
On lead vocals is Ian Tranter, with Cleg Wrathchild on guitar and backing vocals, bassist is Bobby Shackleton and Carter on drums. They are all self-confessed 80s enthusiasts and know that the wide range of 80s music appeals to a hugely diverse range of people of all ages.
Available to booked self-contained with professional sound and lights
Thanks for a brilliant show at our wedding reception on Saturday. To hear the band and see everyone having such a great time was fantastic. I have received lots of very good feedback from our guests. “Welcome To the Monkey-house” was definitely the highlight of the show. Excellent show chaps!

It’s a... nice band for a white wedding!! We’ve just got home from our amazing wedding weekend at a manor house near Hereford. Flashback to the 80s played two incredible sets in our marquee on Saturday night. ALL of our guests (of all ages) were on the dance floor for the entire evening. The show is stunningly good and obviously very well rehearsed, with every song played with the same energy and edginess as the originals in the 80s. Great tunes and great banter from a great bunch of blokes. 'Rebel Yell' nearly bought the tent down with the number of people rockin' it on the dance floor. Some of our guests are musicians and play in bands themselves – and they all said that Ian and the boys were very, very good at what they do. Nobody wanted them to finish, but after 3 encores it was great to have a drink with the guys at the bar. If you were teenagers in the 1980’s then this is THE band to book for your wedding party!!!
I watched this band on Saturday night at the Jolly Sailor Pub in Bristol and was truly amazed. They played, sounded and looked fantastic!! Not your average Tribute band, they were well above the standard. They are great blokes (including the Road crew) and they were happy to talk to us after the show and pose for pictures etc. I have booked them for my 40th Birthday bash and I know it will be a great night. Cheers lads, see you soon.
