80s Invasion takes the music of the ’80s very seriously. This is the music we listened to on our original Sony Walkmen, the bands whose names we stenciled on our pee-chees, jeans, Nikes, and in some cases, all over town. When MTV first came around, these were the bands whose videos we watched all night at our friends’ houses, and the first concerts we went to. Some of our most memorable experiences (ahem) occurred listening to these songs. This music matters and we care enough about it to do it right.
The members of 80s Invasion are seasoned professional musicians with numerous recording and tour credits.
The band was formed out of a serious admiration and fondness of the great dance music of the 1980s.
The lively trio of Sonnich Lydom (accordion, harmonica), Kristian Bugge (fiddle) and Viðar Skrede (guitar) will guarantee you an entertaining journey through the traditions of Danish folk music. They perform old dance tunes and songs from every corner of their Scandinavian home country: From the rural islands of Læsø to metropolitan Copenhagen, including a few of their own compositions. Expect everything from wild polkas and jigs to lyrical waltzes, fiery reels and happy hopsas, plus the exotic Sønderhoning dance tunes from the famous Island of Fanø, and long forgotten songs from all over the country. An unforgettable live experience spiced up with humor and stories from their many years on the road.
