Once upon a time, neon pants were in style and Rubik’s Cubes were the original cause of OCD. Well, tell E.T. to phone back to Earth because The Breakfast Club is playing a 1980s tribute at Rhythm & Brews on Friday, Feb. 20. Even Ferris Bueller is taking the day off for this event (which isn’t that surprising).The ’80s retro fun starts at 10 p.m. At $12 a ticket, you can break out your legwarmers and dance the night away.
The band formed in 1993 with members DavayRay (vocals and guitar), Jerry Finley (vocals, keyboards, and drums), Tony Williams (drums), and Matt Burns (bass, vocals), breaking the sound barrier as the first of its kind. Now, The Breakfast Club is the longest-running and most recognized ’80s tribute band in the United States.
The band’s mission is to be an entertainment group embodying the enigmatic, creative, and buoyant spirit of music and live performances of the original 1980s MTV generation. The group performs in authentic ’80s hair and clothing to bring ’80s pop songs back to life.
