Our Friends Electric 80s Band


Like everyone we can't wait for the lockdowns and restrictions to end so we can get back to what we love best - performing live. It looks likely that restrictions will be lifted from July and we already have new bookings for September 2021 and beyond. Please get in touch via Contact Us if you are thinking of a party or live event. Until then, please stay safe.

Lockdown Video: Are Friends Electric?

About the band

With so many tribute acts and compilation albums using the same songs, you would be forgiven for thinking that there were only ever 40 tunes produced during the 80's. But anyone who was a child of that time will know that there were many more excellent songs written in that decade than those you tend to hear nowadays.

And that is why Our Friends Electric are different to other 80's bands. In a homage to the synthesiser, we specialise in playing those often-eclipsed tracks and seminal classics that no self-respecting 80's aficionado would not fail to recognise - those cult songs that could guarantee to fill the dance floor at any 6th form disco and that were such a REAL part of our growing up.

So, if you long for an authentic 80's night then Our Friends Electric are the band to book. Please check our set list to see the great tunes we cover and you can hire us by completing the form on our bookings page. Our Friends Electric are based in Hertfordshire, UK.
