70’s & 80’s Band Return For The Pub’s 56th Birthday

Returning to The Pub, Airlie Beach Hotel after last year’s birthday success, is ‘Back To The 70’s & 80’s Band’ who took the crowd by storm and brought good cheer to all who attended.

This year The Pub is celebrating its 56th birthday and they’re hoping to replicate last year’s success, inviting the whole community to come along and celebrate once again.

It’s the second time at The Pub for highly-acclaimed ‘Back To The 70’s & 80’s Band’, and founder, performer and front man Alexander Hell said he is excited to bring the show back after it being so well received last year.

With a guitarist, a drummer and three performers, the band members change costumes over 20 times replicating a variety of different legendary musicians from yesteryear.

Audiences can expect parody acts from the iconic eras, lots of laughs and first-class entertainment.

The show is described as a comedy cabaret where audiences are given a vibrant and exciting rendition of some of their favourite songs, combined with fast-paced humour and flamboyant theatrical displays.

People are taken back to the 70’s and 80’s and treated to tunes from artists they love like ABBA, The Proclaimers, Tina Turner, Village People, Brian Ferry, Queen, Meatloaf, and some great disco tracks.

You’ll be laughing at all the references from the good to the bad, that came from the iconic era, from the leg warmers, spandex, fingerless gloves and of course that now legendary hair style.

“It’s all about the F word – fun!” Alexander shared.

The band pay homage to some of the biggest stars over the decades, they pay tribute to them with dress-ups and tongue-in-cheek humour.

Alexander reminisces on the eras, saying he recalls the flair and the way mirror balls changed the way music was made.

“It’s iconic and it’s been lost these days.”

All ages are welcome, it’s time to show the younger crowd that there’s more to music than high-tech beats – it’s all about the rhythm.

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind performance at The Pub.
