A night of nostalgia featuring T'Pau's Carol Decker, Nik Kershaw and DJ Pat Sharp.
80s Mix Tape is a new addition to The Darley Park Weekender for 2022. Take a trip down memory lane, to the era where the fashion and perms were bold, and the hits were non-stop. This night of nostalgia for its first edition will feature some of the icons which helped define the era such as Carol Decker, Nik Kershaw and DJ Pat Sharp.
Opening this 80s-tastic evening is local 4-piece band Cassette Roulette who following on from the success of the Christmas light switch on will be back to provide a mix of old favourites. Following them on stage is The 80s Reunion, which stars hand-picked members from Europe’s premier 80 tribute show, 80s Mania. They will recreate some of the very best chart-topping hits from 80s icons such as Duran Duran, The Human League, Madonna, Eurythmics and more.
Continuing the party is Carol Decker. She is best known as the lead singer of pop-rock band T’Pau, who scored international success in the late 80s with the hit China in Your Hand.
There will also be music from singer, song writer, musician and record producer Nik Kershaw including top 40 hits such as Wouldn’t It Be Good, I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me and The Riddle.
Closing the night, 80s DJ Pat Sharp will take to the decs, mixing up a storm of high energy hits guaranteed to keep you dancing to the end of the night. Pat was staple of the 80s with numerous radio shows to his name and of course well-known for presenting the now cult rated ITV show FunHouse for 12 years.
So, dig out your old leggings, dust off those shoulder pads and join us for an 80s party to remember.
