Location: Norfolk

Like a bit of Erasure? Go misty eyed over Duran? Okay so everyone had bad hair, everything was luminous & every school had an annoying kid who could do the rubiks cube in under a minute (taking the stickers off doesn’t count! ) But the 80s was a decade of great tunes and we are bringing you the biggest, fattest, coolest tracks of the era. So flick back that fringe, slip on the ray bans, strap that big fat 80s mobile to your back and come check out Frankie Says

Biography

With a passion for live music, old school friends Fishy, Castles & Longy formed Frankie Says. They may only be a trio but are able to take on some of the more challenging songs of the 80s by using synths, drum machines & other gadgets to create loops & samples to play alongside their live sound of drums, guitar and bass. They've been lucky enough to play all over the UK for a number of years now with an ever growing list of impressive venues, companies & clients including Ascot Racecourse with Nik Kershaw & Howard Jones and Grosvenor House alongside Jimmy Carr & Dara Ó Briain.

Testimonials

awesome I just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding and how fab we thought you were! I'm not sure if it's the done thing for the bride not to leave the dance floor for the entire evening but you kept playing such good songs I literally couldn’t drag myself off the dance floor. So many people who have written or called about the wedding commented on how good the band were. So thank you very much for making the evening go with such a swing. You were perfect - much more than I could have hoped for and the blisters on my feet were testament to that!!!

hit the spot Dear Malcolm & co, Thank you again for the fantastic job you did at our wedding last Friday. Your repertoire was a little different from other wedding bands and included a lot of our favourite music from the 80s and 90s so we were really pleased that you were available. You had the dance floor filled from start to finish just as we had hoped, and I have never seen Rob dance so much. Nor did I think I’d ever witness my mum dancing to the Stone Roses or Kaiser Chiefs! We have had many positive comments about you from the guests too

took us back Hi Richard, I didn't get a chance to speak to you last night before you left but wanted to email and thank you and the band for an amazing night's music. Everyone commented how great you were and loved the song choices. I'm not a dancer myself but there were plenty people up there dancing who clearly had a great time. A few people have asked for your details so there may be a couple more bookings on the way! I hope you all had a good evening too.
Thanks again, very much :)

classic 80's moves ust want to say a massive great big thank you to you guys for making our wedding awesome. You sounded amazing and the dancefloor was packed all night. You did the best covers of some of my all time favourite tunes and in true bride style, I was throwing shapes on the dancefloor and singing (some may say shouting) like I was a teenager. I managed to lose my voice in the process and in my eyes, that's always the sign of a great band! We had so many great comments from our guests and photographer and to boot, you all look retro cool. Thanks again for being stars and we have video footage of some classic 80's moves.....something to show the grandchildren!

loved you guys I have had so much positive feedback from everyone about the party, they all loved you guys! Can't thank you enough. It was exactly how I anticipated. It was great to see everyone dancing, I saw friends dancing who never normally enter the dance floor! Sorry about Paul's singing - I think he would secretly like to be in a band!! (lol). I'll be sure to recommend you to anyone looking for a band! Thanks again

BIG thank you Hi Guys, Nikki & I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for making our evening so special. As I'm sure you realised yourselves, the evening was a great success & the plaudits have been non stop since Saturday extolling your virtues. Many (myself included) have not heard a tribute band as good & we've seen too many to mention! Once again guys, many thanks - it was a pleasure to listen & dance & sing along to so many hits. Kindest regards

consummate professionals. We hardly knew the band were there until they began to play but at that point the dance floor was full from the start of their set to the end. We offered them a list of our favourite tracks on their play list and they based their choices very much on what we'd asked for without sticking slavishly to the list which we didn't want. Would recommend them to anyone. The sound balance was perfect, no-one complained about it being too loud, not even the oldies, and the performance was just amazingly polished, even when we requested a song that wasn't on their play list for our first dance. Thank you so, we will definitely have you back if we need a live band in the future, you were fantastic and made our day.

fantastic evening Hi Guys I would just like to thank all three of you for a fantastic evening on Saturday. The music was fantastic. Great sound, brilliant voice, I have not seen my husband dance like that in years, or my mum for that matter! It was great to here some fantastic songs from our era. Thanks also for your friendly manner. We have had some great feedback from friends and family all of whom would love to hire you for their own parties. It was lovely meeting you and we will be in touch for future events Thanks again

Big thanks Richard Just wanted to say a belated THANK YOU for doing such a great job at our wedding. We really couldn't have asked for anything more from you guys - fantastic performance, great choice of numbers & a brilliant job djing, Mcing etc. You really kept everything hanging together & we cannot thank you enough. We had so much good feedback about you guys - I especially remember "Imagination" being great. You are really very talented. Thanks again and please pass on our thanks to the guys.
