80's Tribute Band - Vice '80
Vice '80 are a high end, top level band who are widely renowned as being the best sounding 80's band in the business. If you're looking for the most exhilarating 80's party experience, then you've come to the right place!
Vice '80 perform 2 X 1 hour sets of dance-floor-filling hits with NO GAPS between songs!! Each song is re-created with absolute accuracy, performing each hit song with the same synths and sounds as used on the original records. Unlike other bands, their show is performed in FULL stereo, so you can enjoy those fat 80's synth sounds in their full glory! The band performs two, very slick dancefloor filling sets that blend each song into the next with no breaks! Each song links seamlessly into the next, so the music never stops and the dancefloor never empties! It's like having your favourite 80s mega-mix tape, only performed live! Vice '80 are the REAL DEAL! Just watch their condensed promo videos to hear exactly how they sound live!
Vice '80 enjoy going the extra mile for you and your event! With that in mind, they LED light the Keytar, the Drums and even do a costume change for set 2!
Vice '80 offer 2 options for lighting: free, basic stage lighting with wash lights or for just a small fee, we provide a fully programmed concert style 34 fixture lighting rig, with 12 moving heads, strobe lights, UV lights, lasers and smoke!
Additionally, upon request, the band can provide you with their "GLOW Box!" package to take your party experience up to 11 on the fun factor!! For just £50, the'll provide you with inflatable guitars, saxophones, beachballs, bananas and a heap of glow sticks for your guests to enjoy! Plus, they'll blacklight the entire dancefloor, so all your clothes will light up like Christmas trees!!! This package is designed for up to 100 guests. For larger numbers of guests, please ask for a quote.
With combined experience of around 60 years, the members of Vice '80 have performed at more weddings and events than you could shake a very large glow stick at! The band members have been in several signed bands, performed for royalty and presidents, headlined festivals with crowds of over 300,000 people, had top 5 hits in the UK and Europe and been in platinum selling bands!
Vice '80 are happy to learn your first dance for a small fee and subject to agreement and minimum 60 days written notice required. This is more of a token fee and doesn’t represent the many hours the band will spend learning and perfecting your song. Alternatively the band is always happy to play your chosen song on mp3 via their DJ software. They’ll also supply a free un-manned DJ service to keep you firmly in the 80s. Planning your big Christmas event? Vice '80 have a set of fabulous festive favourites to add into their set, giving their 80s set a Christmas sparkle!

These guys are incredible! We had so much fun and so did all our guests. I’m so happy we booked them and the amount of effort that they went to when a Covid hiccup hit was unbelievable!! Thank you soo much!
Hired for a sixth form ball, the students absolutely loved the band. Feedback included; "best night ever" and " I didn't realise I liked 80s music until tonight". The band were extremely professional and the show looked and sounded amazing. Would definitely recommend them.
Just thought I would drop you an email to say what a wonderful evening we had – the band went down as a big success. A fantastic night was had by all! Many thanks.
WOW! You guys were simply amazing! You had so many compliments from guests, everyone wanted to know where I found you! You were so professional to deal with throughout and SO much fun on stage! My wife and I felt like kids again, back in high school! Loved your song choices and how you mixed them together. A really amazing experience we'll never forget! Thanks so much!
The band were perfect. Highly professional and punctual. I've had nothing but compliments from all those who attended. I'll be recommending them for future corporate and private events.

What's included as standard?
2 X 1 Hour sets of live 80s music, a full 4000W QSC PA System a basic lighting setup, LED lit drums and keytar and pre mixed music during the interval!
How long do you perform for?
We perform 2 x 1 hour sets of non-stop party music with a half hour to 1 hour break in between sets.
Will you learn our first dance?
Due to heavy demand, we are happy to learn your first dance for a small fee. This is more of a "token fee" and doesn't represent the many hours we'll spend learning and perfecting your song. All first dance requests must be recieved by us in writing no later 60 days prior to the event and we need to agree to the song, as not all songs are within our capability, due to instrumentation and complexity restraints. Alternatively we're very happy to play the original mp3 of your chosen song for free using our DJ software.
Do you mind where you perform?
Not at all! However, we do stipulate that if we’re performing outdoors, that you provide us with a hard, flat floor, a roof over our heads and walls behind us and to both sides, to protect us and our gear from the elements. Unexpected rain can and has happened, and is VERY expensive without protection. We also highly recommend putting us in the same room as the bar. Trust us, this can make or break an event!
Can you play a first dance/special request?
Yes, although we do levy a small charge for this and ask that we get 60 days notice to learn your choice and rehearse. You must also request the song in writing.
How much time do you need to set up?
We ask for 2 hours to set up and sound check. This ensures we're fully set up, sound checked and changed into our finest performance clothes with time to spare. However, if time is limited to less than 2 hours, then just let us know when you enquire and we'll see what we can do! :)
How much stage space do you require?
The bigger the better! However, weather we're on a stage or on the floor, we do ask for a minimum of 5 meters width by 3.5 meters depth to fit in our lights, PA, drums and 3 front men. If you have less space, let us know within your enquiry and we'll see what we can do for you.
How many power sockets do you need?
We require at least 4 reliable power sockets from 4 seperate wall sockets (not a four way extension lead) located on the stage/performance area.
Do I need to provide anything else?
We ask that you provide a lockable room for us to use when we're not onstage. This is to store our belongings. You will also need to provide us with free soft drinks throughout the day/evening and provide us with 4 substantial filling meals, as this will likely be the only food we get to eat all day (and it is usually a 20+ hour day! ;)
- 2 x 60 Minutes
