Dance Rock, Synth-Pop, Indie, New Wave? Must be THE REAGAN EIGHTIES! We dare you to listen to our music, because if it doesn't make you bob your head, shake your butt, or want to throw your stereo out the window, then we probably haven't done our job.
Too many bands call their music "diverse," "unclassifiable," or a various number of other terms that don't do much to describe their genre. We won't do that to you, because we're nice guys, plus we're too lazy to list all of our influences. Needless to say, we sound like The Reagan Eighties. Because we are The Reagan Eighties. And that's OK, right?
Brandon and Bryan Peach, twins from Lebanon PA, comprise exactly one-half of The Reagan Eighties. When they're not playing guitar, bass, synth or singing, the Peaches are students at Penn State University. Josh Eiceman, a native of Grantville PA, grew up drumming and hasn't stopped since, other than to take random food and drink breaks. Josh is a much sought-after mix of John Bonham and William "The Refrigerator" Perry. Matt Cathcart, of Syracuse NY, plays guitar, synthesizer and sings, but his one true love is Gumby. For some reason, Matt consistently mispronounces words like "cereal" and "button."
...Brandon loves Elvis, The Twilight Zone and shaving with a straight razor from Old Bond Street. Brandon is slightly less eccentric than the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson, but he loves the art of the theremin just as much. ...Bryan is a big fan of Nintendo, The Cure, and John Cusack. He has recently been listening to Electric Light Orchestra's 1981 record "Time" and, much like singer Jeff Lynne, has been wondering: "Is this the way life's meant to be?" ...Josh, the baby of the band, is the only member of the band who regularly wears sleeveless shirts. That is because he is the only one with arms large enough to warrant it. Seriously. He's a monster. ...Matt's backyard is home to the prestigious Syracuse University. Largely because of this, he has weekly nightmares of orange men. He seems to think he is Rick Ocasek reincarnated, even though the REAL Rick Ocasek is, of course, alive and well.
