SWITCH BACK TO THE 80’s: https://iloveswitch.com/switch80s/#“Like riding in a DeLorean about to hit 88mph.”The music of the 80’s had a huge influence on us, so when we started the band the majority of the songs we learned were from the 80’s. Our vision was to play shows that featured 80’s music, videos, costumes, decor, celebrity look a likes and everything else. Over the years we have performed at some of the most awesome 80’s themed events and parties. We have also opened for some great 80s bands like Tears For Fears, Loverboy, Rick Springfield, Night Ranger, The Romantics, Berlin and STYX.

ROCKIT FLY: https://rockitfly.square.site/Rockit Fly started with the simple love of 80’s Rock n’ Roll. The rush of watching others rocking out with us kept us rocking, until Rockit Fly became one of the most sought-after Rock n’ Roll bands in Central Florida. But our fans wanted more… they kept raving and insisting that we should perform originals too. We finally decided to do just that! ‘Breakout’, our first all-original album, is now available. It was inspired by the 80’s hits you know and love but with our own unique edge.

REECE GUSTAFSON: https://www.reecegusmusic.com/Reece is a recent college grad, earning his Biology degree from Houghton University in Western NY. While applying for Dental School, he is pursuing his passion for songwriting and musical entertainment. He has performed at Alan Jackson’s rooftop bar in Nashville, TN, and throughout Western NY, PA, and OH. Most recently, opening for Sister Hazel at Rocktoberfest in Florida. He performed in one of the largest fairs in the US during the Labor Day weekend – the Canfield Fair. Don’t miss an opportunity to watch him live and follow him on social media to stay up to date on new releases and performance schedules. @Reecegusmusic
