High In the Mid 80s / Bio

High In the Mid 80s is seven seasoned and professional musicians, playing the best new wave and pop music from the early to mid 1980s. With our authentic sound, 80s clothing and high energy show, we totally recreate the 80s club experience! With members from popular 80s cover bands, including Strutter, NRG, Flossie, Cool Suits and Bystander!

PLUS, we have special guests from other popular 80s cover bands at many of our shows! And, with the resurgence of 80s music, we are adding new, younger fans at every show!
The audio tracks were recorded live, unlike many demo CDs, which are done in the studio with many hours of re-recording and layered tracks. We do not feel that those CDs are representative of what you will actually hear when the band plays live. Our audio tracks are exactly what you will hear when we play live!
High In the Mid 80s has a large following, and currently plays to packed houses all over New Jersey.

Here are just some of the NJ clubs that we have played:
Mohawk House - Sparta
Martell's Tiki Bar - Point Pleasant
The Sea Shell - Beach Haven
Rhythms of the Night - Manville
The Stage House Tavern - Somerset
Rho (formerly KatManDu) - Trenton
The Firehouse Pub - Rahway
Aqua - Asbury Park
Please feel free to contact these venues.
