Originally created to play at a picky friend’s wedding, The Engagements have earned a reputation as a unique, “anti-wedding-band” wedding band. Comprised of some top-flight professional musician friends who share a love of hand claps and synthesizers, they’ve found a warm reception from couples seeking music outside the typical “wedding band” offerings. Their band members have toured in the bands of some recognizable acts – from Michael McDonald and Michael Buble, to Sharon Jones and French Kicks.
Tonight however, their viral 80s covers have been quarantined to the Half Moon, where the dance party will mutate into a celebration of the Undead 80s that few will live to see. Prepare to bop to this 10-piece band’s high-energy, faithful 80s favorites, while avoiding cannibals and bath salt addicts. -Featuring the music of The Smiths, Michael Jackson, Simple Minds, Eurythmics, The Cars, Talking Heads, and much more.
