The 85’s are a “Totally Rad” dance party band performing high energy and “true to the original” renditions of classic pop and rock songs from the 80’s!
Since forming the group in 2005 the band has been entertaining audiences at major clubs, private events and outdoor festivals with their myriad of classic songs from the 80’s era from artists such as: The Clash, Devo, English Beat, Eurythmics, The Fixx, Madonna, Police, Pretenders, Prince, Journey, and Van Halen!
The band was formed by three Marin musicians; Monroe Grisman- Guitar/vocals, Adam “Bagel” Berkowitz-Drums/vocals, Django Bayless- Bass/vocals all of whom graduated from Tamalpais High School in 1985 and then went on to perform with some of the North Bay’s favorite bands over the past 20 years as current or former members of: Petty Theft, AZ/DZ, About Face, American Drag, Jerry Hannan and Noelle Hampton. The band also features the superb lead vocal talent of April Grisman who has worked with Eric Martin, Clarence Clemons, and Irene Cara. New to the 85’s but not the Bay Area music scene is John Varn on keyboards who has performed with Neal Schon’s “Journey Through Time” and currently performs with the Marin Based Crooked Stuff.
The 85’s put on a high-energy show packed with an amazing selection of classic songs sure to get you out of your seat and on your feet to the dance floor. No doubt about it, the 85’s show is a guaranteed killer time! So, don’t miss the “PAR-TAY!"
