The feedback from all the members on 80’s night has been really terrific with many people making a point of saying what a great night it was and in particular how the band made it a night to remember…the floor was packed from start to finish! Look forward to seeing you back at Knowle Golf Club soon!

What a fantastic band and amazing experience. We hired Smack The 80s for our wedding and were blown away by the their showmanship, performance quality and their integrity to giving an original 80s sound! We wanted a band that would get people on their feet and Smack The 80s certainly did not disappoint! So many of our guests have commented on a great choice of band and how much energy they injected into the evening! Absolute professionals, we had great communication with the band from our initial booking right up to the day of the event; we cannot thank them enough for making the evening so incredible and memorable! You will not be disappointed! Kind Regards

Thanks to Smack The 80s for a great night last night for my wife Jayne’s surprise Birthday party at Thornbury Golf Centre. Thank you for keeping time for us and basically running the evening – lovely friendly people too. Everyone enjoyed the evening thanks to the great performance of many favourite songs from the past, we will make sure we recommend Smack The 80s to everyone and we will see you again I’m sure. All the best.
Andy & Jayne - SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY, THORNBURY GOLF CENTRE, JULY 2018

We required a band that could create a party atmosphere in store for an important customer Christmas shopping event and chose Smack the 80’s I have to say we were not disappointed! The band were friendly, courteous and mindful of our customers trying to shop around them while setting up. The 80’s vibe was perfect for the Party atmosphere we were trying to create. Customers and partners alike commented on the authentic 80s sound and quality of the musicians. I cannot thank Mike and the band enough.

Smack the 80’s are a perfect tribute to the 80’s genre of music and we would thoroughly recommend them. Everyone really enjoyed the night and made reference in particular to the quality and standard of music which made the evening perfect. Extremely friendly band who were willing and able to make the birthday surprise special. Anyone looking to book a live band for any celebration look no further than Smack the 80’s, look forward to seeing you all later in the year.

Just wanted to thank you for a great time at the BAWA club last night! I’m sure you could tell how much everyone was enjoying your music by the number of people on the dance floor plus the cheering for more at the end! Come again soon please!

Smack the 80s are the ultimate time machine for travelling to arguably the greatest decade for music style and fashion. They use great arrangements and interpretation faithful to the original songs all stamped with the bands own skilled authenticity and spirit (they were around at the time I believe). Smack the 80s will never make you feel you have heard it all before, but instead remind you of the timelessness of a good vocal melody, a gripping enthused rhythm and that the synthesiser can still do things to you aurally in the 21st century you never would have thought possible.

Thank you so much for making our special day even more memorable by giving us a real old fashioned party. The band were great and your singer is amazing. We have passed on your details to our friends who are getting married next year. Thank you again, SMACK The 80s.

Thank you for a truly fantastic night. As you know, Zap Events hold monthly dances with a live act and disco at The Hanham Community centre and July was the first time we had tried an 80s night. And what a success ! Great sound and a lively show .The dance floor was crowded from start to finish and our regulars have asked for a repeat booking for Nov 13th. Please send the contract asap!
Zan and Philomena, founders of Zap Events

As a promoter , I have to carefully select bands that will always deliver a great event so Smack the 80s are my first choice for an 80s tribute, every time…lively , entertaining and great musicianship to re-create those dance floor fillers from this golden era, Also as a group of musicians they are extremely professional and polite, a real pleasure to work with, I would not hesitate in recommending Smack the 80s to put on a fantastic family show that will leave you wanting more and more and more
Pete Marsh, Bristol Promoter and DJ

We have seen other 80s bands and you really are the business ! More enthusiasm, more authentic sounds and great fun ! We felt we were back in 1985 ! Our feet were aching next day ! We shall definitely come and see you again.Thanks for a fabulous night.
Dave and Kim - The Tunnels, Bristol, Dec 2018

You were right, you did get us rockin’ and we weren’t an easy crowd ! Your advice on the timings for the night was spot on as well…thanks for sharing your past experience ! We all really enjoyed the choice and delivery of the music and you were loads of fun …. so many people commented on how great the band were and are still talking about it weeks later.Thanks for adding the icing on the cake of a fantastic evening.
Suzy, Russ and Pru - Wedding Anniversary, Leigh Court, Aug 2018

We were impressed from start to finish, with their communication prior to the event, and they were absolutely superb on the night. All guests were astounded at how good the band was, and I would highly recommend Smack The 80s to all. Best regards
Jon S - OGBOURNE GOLF CLUB SUMMER CHARITY DAY, JULY 2018

A huge thank you for a fantastic performance on Saturday at our 80s ball! It was a great night that was made by your music and we couldn’t have been happier You were clearly a hit, not only by the dance floor that never emptied, but also from the many positive comments that we received, and there was a buzz from start to end -The quality of your musicianship (including vocals) is highly impressive – the way that you interacted with everyone, rather than just playing at them, made for a great atmosphere. You’ve been great to deal with and I’ve appreciated your personal engagement with the event.

A great​ 5 piece​ band that gave us non-stop classic 80s songs. We had such an enjoyable night we have booked them straight away for a return next year!!​

Saw the band in Bristol recently – great live band and lots of dancing going on. Loved the set, loads of electro pop hits and they have a really full sound – almost like the real thing!

This is a quick note to thank you and the band for an absolutely superb evening. There was great communication ahead of the evening and you were responsive and well organised. The band were lovely and you all really seemed to enjoy yourselves which added to the whole event .M y family and friends enjoyed themselves so much. You could probably tell that by the fact that the dance floor was packed from the first song right to the last! The choice of songs were great and I did appreciate you playing for way longer than planned. I had so many comments about the quality of the band and how fantastic you all were.Thank you!
Tricia H, Birthday Party at Thornbury Golf Centre (Feb 2017)

Very well done indeed. I’ve spoken with Peter, and he said you were all round absolutely great, great musicians, performers and a good set too. This is good news as I need another one or two party bands who I feel I can work with throughout 2015.
