About Us

From South Bend, Indiana, The 1985 is a five-member retro party band that features the best of the 1980s rock, pop, new wave and metal. While we just wanna have fun, we take our roles as performers seriously. We have a fine-tuned, super-charged technical show that combines lights, videos, costumes and more to create a totally immersive music experience. Our goal is to help you turn back time and party like it’s 1985.
