Tony Starlight and the Nu Wavers 80s Experience

Tony Starlight’s ‘80s Experience

Featuring Tony Starlight and The Nu Wavers

Tony joins forces with The Nu Wavers to take on the ’80s. The first set Tony will take you through his personal love/hate relationship with the fashion, style and music of the most ridiculous decade in memory.


Through music and monologues Tony will:

  1. Justify buying The Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me”
  2. Try to make sense of the video for “In A Big Country”
  3. Stop the world and melt with you
  4. Reveal the worst song ever, yes, even worse than “Sweet Caroline”
  5. Explain what a boom box was
  6. Share why he briefly dressed like Bono
  7. What exactly is a “keytar” and should I be scared?
  8. Try to talk the Nu Wavers into learning at least one Judas Priest song
  9. Work through long buried issues from his teenage years
  10. Decide if it really is a nice day for a white wedding?

and more…

The second set will be an ’80s dance party with Tony and The Nu Wavers, featuring ABC, The Cure, Animotion, The Pretenders, Talk Talk, INXS, Devo and more… In fact, you can help select the songs we play by voting in the poll on this page!


The Nu Wavers are Blake Sakamoto, Willow Bacon, Steve Adams, Kenny Davis and Steve Hale. They are accomplished musicians who really know how to entertain. Check out their Facebook page:
