"We chose Epic 80s to provide the evening entertainment at our recent wedding reception and we are so glad we did so. They proved to be a big hit with our guests, not only because they played great music, covering a string of well known, popular hits from the 1980s, but because of the way they interacted with the guests while performing. Our original wedding day was twice postponed due to Covid and Epic 80s couldn’t have been more understanding and  accommodating, further proving we were right to choose them. Great music and great voices, we would thoroughly recommend them for any special occasion or event."

 David and Patrick, April 2022


"Thank you Epic80s for a fantastic performance at our wedding reception.  You were brilliant and had our 200 guests on the dance floor partying and singing along with you all night.  The way you engaged with us and guests during your singing was superb.  Highly recommend.  Great fun party band.  We can't wait to see you play again!"

Jon and Joy Leader, September 2019


"What an amazing night at my 60th birthday party.  Along with family, friends, venue, food and drink, the band was fantastic.  They got everyone dancing, singing and interacted with all.  The band were very friendly and professional.  They make it what a party should be - fun, enjoyable and wanting more.  I highly recommend them for all events and parties."

Elaine Ottaway, August 2019


"Thank you Epic80 for a fabulous night. You guys are for sure epic ... friendly, professional and sound great. My guests made so many compliments over your performance ... would book you again in a heart beat ... if you're free !! You helped to make my party a huge success. Thank you. Julie"

"We booked Epic80s for a conference dinner at The Grand Hotel, Brighton, and they were excellent - got guests on to the dance floor from the first number right through to the last.  They were also really easy to work with - I thoroughly recommend them."
Nick Rawlings, National Road Safety Conference Organiser, November 2018


"Have to say Epic80s made the party.  I booked them for my wife's party several months before.  Naturally nervous booking a band I had never heard before and only viewed the videos on their web site.  Epic80s lived up to every expectation, continuous contact from booking till party, on the day they were very professional.  Alongside this, every band member was friendly and ensured I was happy throughout the night.

The performances were out of this world.  Every single person at the party commented how good they were, not only in the performance but in engagement with the crowd which in turn had pretty much every person dancing.  Absolutely fantastic from start to finish.

I will definitely be booking them again in the future, and already looking for the next excuse to have a party to book Epic80s.  Thank you for making the occasion that extra special, not only for me but for everyone at the party."

"Epic80s helped make Saltdean Lido's anniversary weekend a huge success.  Their client support team helped promote the event and even designed a bespoke poster.  On the evening itself, the band set up their kit and conducted sound checks with speed and efficiently.  They got everyone in the party mood and filled the dance floor throughout the evening.  We thoroughly recommend them."

"Although I could barely move my legs first thing this morning, due to a full night of dancing in old school 80's heels, it was well worth it!!  Epic80s, you now have a HUGE fan (me!) and lots of other new fans too!  Everyone is still raving about how great you were last night.  Thank you for making my 40th birthday so extra special!"

"A huge thank you to Epic 80's for a fantastic gig at our party - 2 sets of unadulterated 80's bliss. Everyone at the party asked "where did you find them" and said you were the best band ever! What is great about Epic 80's is that it was very clear that you all love what you do - the performances by singers and band were brilliant, the sound was great and your enthusiasm for the music was infectious. Some bands can be a bit 'stand-offish' but you all mixed in with our guests between sets and were very friendly and chilled. Everyone was up dancing and the selection of songs you performed were perfect. We can't recommend you highly enough to anyone who wants to hire an amazing band for parties, functions or corporate events. Thank you so much for making our party the best ever, our guests loved you and we were all left wanting more! We will definitely be looking out for your public gigs as we are now massive fans! "

"A big thank you Epic80s for playing at Andrew's 50th birthday party.
After seeing your promo video on YouTube I was expecting you to be good but you actually sound even better live.  That's not just my opinion, most of the guests came over to ask about you and compliment me on picking such a great band!
Having never booked a band before I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the whole experience, from booking you to the end of the last performance.    Lauren, you are obviously a natural at getting the guests up and dancing and joining in to make the perfect party.
Thank you again for making a special day into a very special night.  With an 80's theme and all those great songs from the era we felt like teenagers again, if only we could do it every weekend....."

"We couldn't have wished for a better band for my wife's 50th birthday. We had about 160 guests and Epic 80s kept the party going brilliantly for the whole of their set. The choice of songs was brilliant, the playing and singing were incredibly good ... and you couldn't hope for a nicer bunch to work with.
The dancefloor was packed and everyone was smiling. The response of our party guests afterwards was unanimous - the band were superb. We had so many letters and emails saying that people hadn't had so much fun at a party in ages. I couldn't recommend Epic 80s highly enough."

"Epic 80's you are really epic!  You put on a tremendous show for my 60th and really personalised the evening.  My friends who came to the party have contacted me to indicate their pleasure in your performance.  Everyone was up dancing to the music of the 80's and they really enjoyed themselves.  We had many musicians at the party who commented positively on the music.  What more can you ask.  Thank you for all your energy and hard work."

"Darren Soffe and his band Epic80s have entertained guests at two Christmas parties that I have hosted.  Dealing with them prior was hassle free with Darren planning ahead to ensure the events ran smoothly.  On the night they truly delivered that epic 80's sound that got everyone on the dance floor.  I would highly recommend them and intend to engage them again in the future."

"Thank you for a fantastic evening at our club, great music that kept the dance floor full all night. Already booked for 2015, looking forward to having you guys back."

"We just want to say thank you so much for playing at Mike's 65th birthday party. We love the music and always enjoy watching you perform, which is why we simply had to book you for his special birthday.  We had such a great night - as you could probably tell from seeing everyone dancing all evening.  Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you play again very soon!"
Lynda and Mike Street, Shoreham by Sea, January 2014
"Thank you so much for playing at our Christmas party, you absolutely made the night.  The dancefloor was full for the entire evening, we've never seen some of our colleagues move like that before!  The range of music you play from the 80s is so diverse there was something for everyone, and your rendition of 'The Fairytale of New York' was brilliant.  The feedback in the office on Monday was fantastic, so many people saying how great the band was!  Really well done, you are true professionals and we would highly recommend you to anyone that needs a band for a party or wedding."
The Sports & Social Committee, Close Brothers Invoice Finance, December 2013

"I booked Epic80s for a surprise party to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday.  The band were brilliant, they were professional in all areas, they got all the guests up and dancing, the playing and singing was suberb and they sound just like all those classic songs from the 80s sound on record.  I know many people at the party wanted to book them for other events and I can't wait to hear them again.  Highly recommended."
Ben Taylor, Ringmer, November 2013

"We booked Epic 80's for our wedding reception after seeing you perform at the Crown and Anchor in Brighton.  We instantly knew that you were the band for us and were so excited when you confirmed that they would be able to perform at our wedding at Brighton and Hove Golf Club.  We absolutely loved your performance, we wish we could get married again just so we could book you again!  Your epic performance made sure that the dance floor was full for the entire evening with guests of all ages! So many of our guests commented, saying you were such a great band and so versatile.  How you manage to sound so much like so many different artists from the 80's I will never know.  So talented!  Thank you so much for working hard to learn some new songs for us.  It really made our night and made our first dance so special! It was brilliant!  We would highly recommend you to anyone that needs a band."
Andrew and Lowri Tolman, Wedding Reception, Brighton and Hove Golf Club, October 2013

"Epic80s are by far the best 80s tribute band I have ever seen. Their play list is, without exception, the most comprehensive you could hear. They have played at my club - Balcombe Club - twice now and are booked for New Years Eve 2013. The gig on Saturday 30th March was an absolute stormer, played to a capacity audience.  They had the crowd on their feet and dancing from the 1st chords, right til the last bar of 3 fantastic sets, With the most accomplished musicians and, in Lauren and Jason, the finest vocalists you would want to hear, there is only one outcome - a fantastic night enjoyed by everyone.  Every time they leave my club, they leave with everybody smiling.
Looking forward to their next visit"
Richard Cooper, Balcombe Club, March 2013

"Ok, well the very aptly named Epic 80s Band gigged at the Ringles Cross Pub last night. I say aptly named because they were nothing short of EPIC. They made the journey in snowy conditions to provide what can only be described as an outstanding performance, showing huge commitment by actually getting here in difficult conditions, they provided the pub with an excellent evening of entertainment. Normally our locals like to have a few and get into the mood before having a dance, not so last night, everyone was up immediately AND call me sad but I get excited after brilliant renditions of Georgio Moroder's 'Electric Dreams' and Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing' just to mention a couple of the brilliant numbers played to an appreciative audience. We obviously paid the band gladly for our evening's entertainment, the customers then had a whip around and produced a further £86, a testament to the professionalism and talent of the band. We will be rebooking very soon and cannot commend this band highly enough, Thankyou Dave"
Dave Gardner, The Ringles Cross, Uckfield, January 2013

"I just wanted to say thank you to you and the band for a fabulous night of entertainment last nite.  Everybody I spoke to last nite said how good the band was. So thank you for a great nite and all your hard work and effort."
Jon Cater, Shoreham Fire Station, December 2012

“'Thank you so much for last night – the band were absolutely fantastic and everyone had a great time! The feedback has been great, you really know how to get the audience dancing. We would love to have you come and play again. I’m going on Facebook now to sing your praises :) ”
Clive and Sue Miller, Victoria Pavilion, Uckfield, August 2012

“This is the first time I have seen a band replicate so competently the sound and feel of those 80’s songs. “Epic80s” want to get the people dancing, so much of their material is a mixture of soul, funk, dance grooves and club anthems from that era. Two top quality vocalists... the harmonies and blend of voices were spot on. Add to this a bass & drums rhythm section that was as tight as a pair of 80s trousers, a cool guitarist and some quite brilliant keyboard work and you have a band that commands top dollar on the commercial circuit.”
