Two of the UK's biggest radio stations, Absolute Radio and Greatest Hits Radio, now have entire stations dedicated to playing just 80's and 90's music, with over 3 million dedicated listeners.
People love a classic. These are songs that stand the test of the time, songs that evoke memories, feelings, emotions and that make you want to dance , sing along and take you to another place.
The EightyNines perform classic hits from the 80's and 90's - 2 fantastic decades for music. From New Romantics in the
Eighties, to Nineties Britpop and everything in between, the EightyNines have it covered. We have 20 years experience in live entertainment, having performed at hundreds of functions and events, and 2 of our members are resident musicians at Jools Hollands "Jamhouse" in Birmingham.
As a trio we are versatile enough to be background musicians or instigate a full on party. With years of experience, we are extremely adaptable and as individuals or together can also provide live music for wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions, etc. 80's & 90's is our core, but if you require some jazz, background music or even music to walk up the aisle to - no problem at all.
From weddings and parties to corporate hospitality, we are available for hire for any function or event.
We simply love what we do, and we deliver each and every performance with energy, top notch musicianship and attention to detail. We hope you enjoy looking around our site, and taking a trip back with us to when songs were great and music was real.
We look forward to playing for you soon

"The EightyNines played at our wedding on 16/06/18 and were outstanding, they played beautifully; they are incredibly talented, and had everyone dancing non stop. We've had so many people comment on how much they enjoyed the music. Completely professional in every respect but also relaxed, easy-going and genuinely nice guys. They couldn't have been better and provided us with the party we had hoped for. Thank you"

"As the owner of St Johns House Boutique Hotel in Lichfield I have worked with the EightyNines pretty much from the start of our tenure 6 years ago. They are a pleasure to deal with and three grounded guys who are very good at what they do. They always go down a storm with our guests,. We look forward to another wedding season working together. Keep it up boys."
Dan Ralley, Owner, St John's House, Lichfield
