Remember the eighties? Sure, we all do...but the band, The Legwarmers, doesn’t just remember the eighties— they relive them. This winter, the group that bills themselves as The Ultimate 80s Tribute Band will be bringing their act to The NorVa in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday, February 22nd!
It all started back in May 2001 when Gordon Gartrell and Cru Jones had just seen yet another cover band butcher the decade that they loved, so they decided to do something about it. They assembled a group and vowed to give the world's most hedonistic decade the tribute it deserved. Joined by Chet Reno, Lavaar Huxtable, Roxanne Rio, Capt. Morgan Pondo and Clarence McFly, they locked themselves in the basement with a shoebox-full of dusty 45's and an endless supply of Tab. One year later, The Legwarmers emerged.
Quickly taking the DC area by storm, shows became events for those in search of a simpler time when everybody was just working for the weekend and it was hip to be square. From the Simmons electronic drum kit to the checkered vans and skinny ties –The Legwarmers are the eighties you remember. Fans have reported leaving shows trapped in character, blaming The Legwarmers for their ill-fated attempts at dancing on the ceiling and their inability to drive 55. The Legwarmers do the songs the way they were meant to be done - with a wink, a smile, and a sound that gels like Aqua Net.
With more moves than a Rubik's Cube, The Legwarmers take the stage like its prom night in a John Hughes movie, a very special episode of "Square Pegs," and the Monsters of Rock Tour. So, remember, this isn’t a normal cover band—it's The Legwarmers, the Ultimate 80s Tribute Band. The Legwarmers: The Ultimate 80s Experience is appropriate for all ages. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door and are available at www.thenorva.com. For additional information, please contact The NorVa by calling (757) 627-4547.
