Class of '82 - Official CASI Race After-Party
Saturday, March 14, 2020 10:00 AM
If you're a fan of music from the 1980s, get ready to celebrate and dance to some of the great synth-pop music from the Quad Cities brand new music group, CLASS OF '82. The group formed in 2016, and have been rehearsing and preparing music from the bands that have influenced their taste in music from the 80s.
Victor Leon is the lead vocalist of the band, drawing his influences from Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode, and Bono from U2 . Bryce Swanson (from Soul Storm) is on guitar and backing vocals, laying down the rhythmic and solo lines, while Devin Alexander (from The Post Mortems) is on bass guitar and backing vocals. This band features not one, but two synthesizer musicians to give it a true 80s synth-pop sound. Zack Johnson (from Soul Storm) and Zach Metzger (formerly of Remedy) provide the synth sounds that will open the nostalgic memories for all the iconic and influential songs from the era. Josh Duffee, who is known for performing Bix-era jazz music from the 1920s-40s, is the drummer for this band. Instead of a vintage drumset, he will be performing on a unique electronic kit to give the band a true retro sound, as well as an acoustic kit.
CLASS OF '82 focus heavily on the synth-pop era bands of the 1980s. The songs being covered range from one-hit wonders to the more obscure songs that not too many people have ever heard before. In addition to all the songs they are covering, they are also writing their own originals in the same style to slowly add to their list of songs being performed at each show.. The band will perform songs made popular by bands like Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, Alphaville, Erasure, China Crisis, Men Without Hats, Flock of Seagulls, Naked Eyes, Kajagoogoo, Wang Chung, Talking Heads, and many more!
