Electro 80s at The Studio in Nantwich

Electronica tribute band ‘Electro 80s’ helped raise hundreds of pounds at a charity concert at The Studio in Nantwich, writes Jonathan White.

The venue on Mill Street is staging a series of shows by local bands to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice.

Electro 80s performed a two-hour set recreating songs by artists including Gary Numan, OMD, Visage, Tears for Fears, Kraftwerk, A Flock of Seagulls, Howard Jones, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Spandau Ballet, The Human League, Erasure, and Yazoo.

Their show was accompanied by robotic dancer ‘Man O’ Chrome’ and a stunning light display.

The finale was ‘Say Hello, Wave Goodbye’ from Soft Cell.

Entry was by donation and the £536 raised will go to St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice in Winsford.


Nigel Woodhouse, director of operations at The Studio, said: “Electro 80’s always provide excellent entertainment.

“We hope everyone had a great night. We are pleased to support St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice in their fund-raising efforts.”

Future fund-raising concerts at The Studio for St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice:

Friday October 7 – Beardsmith – doors open 8.30pm, on stage 9.30pm. Entry by donation.

Friday November 4 – The Bon Jovi Experience – doors open 8.30pm, on stage 9.30pm. Entry by donation.
