About Electric Avenue
We don’t get to repeat even one minute of our time here. No do-overs.
Movies can provide ‘make-believe’ time machines in 2D, but what if you
could relive all of the youthful energy and sonic celebration that was 1980s
New Wave & Radio Pop, without needing 1.21 GW of power at 88mph?
Every sound. Every nuance. Every feeling.
“If you close your eyes it’s 1985. This band is unbelievable.”
Christine Murphy, Manchester, CT
What started out as a one-off gig has turned into 90+ shows a year in more
than a dozen states. EA has also cruised international waters with The
Walking Dead Cast, Kid Rock, The Impractical Jokers, Pitbull, and proudly
shared the stage with Pat Benatar, Bobby Kimball (Lead singer of Toto),
Little River Band and more… Needless to say, EA is more than your regular
tribute band. (No really, their resume of employers and recording credits is pretty impressive)
If tribute bands aren’t usually your thing, Electric Avenue fully understands.
What’s important is that you love these records, and that is exactly why this
band exists. In fact, these ace musicians know that that is precisely what
connects the band to the fans; the responsibility of geting it right, every
night. If the Devil is truly in the details, then these boys are slow dancing
with Darth Vader himself.
Electric Avenue’s sound is so close to that of the original artists that in 2019
Warner Music issued a cease-and-desist for using original recordings on
their social channels. After hearing the complete live recording of Electric
Avenue’s performance, Warner Music issued an apology to the band.
You can’t buy that kind of press!
“Incredible! Every song was as good as the original, or better.”
Michael Collins, San Diego, CA
You also can’t buy people’s support. Giving it all you’ve got while on stage
is natural for this team, as-is the community relationship that Electric
Avenue shares with its fans. As a result, Electric Avenue has been able to
raise just shy of 8 million dollars for charities across the South East.
“If we lose sight of who we were when we were younger, then we lose sight of all of
the things that were important to us in our youth. This plays into what EA does, which
is to remind people of a time when they came home from school, put on a record and
listened to it with open ears and an open heart. That’s what we’re selling – Nostalgia
and the most fun.” Kevin Spencer (Lead Vocals / Guitar)
