Act Profile

Jumpin 80's

Jumpin 80's was formed in 2011 by Mike after receiving many requests at events to perform songs from the 80's. Having played with hundreds of musicians Mike chose only the best to join him in creating something extraordinary, a 4-piece band that sounds like a 7-piece. Jumpin 80's play the biggest anthems of the 80's by the world's most celebrated artists from the pop of Madonna and Michael Jackson to the disco of Pointer Sisters to the rock of Guns N Roses and Bon Jovi. Every song is a hit and Jumpin 80's can play them all.

Mike
Mike is a seriously passionate musician. He plays piano, guitar, bass, saxophone and he sings. His infectious exciting guitar playing in Jumpin 80's always receives amazing feedback from guests. Mike sets himself the highest standards possible every time and expects the same from anyone he plays with. He has worked with many acclaimed artists, bands and session players such as Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, Pitchshifter (Mortal Kombat soundtrack), The Kooks, Steve Washington (Take That), Toploader, Carleen Anderson (Brand New Heavies), Pete Friesen (Alice Cooper), Kelle Bryan (Eternal), Bruce Dickinson (Little Angels) and Kevin Nixon (Kula Shaker). Mike even has his originally written songs requested by music publishers in Los Angeles!

Gemma has performed with Carleen Anderson (Brand New Heavies), supported Girls Aloud, Paolo Nutini, The Script and the late great Amy Winehouse. She has also worked with Liberty X and Javine and appeared on ITV`s Madonna Mania. Gemma has supported these acts across Asia and Europe!

Amy

Amy has been performing for over 15 years and breathes vibrant life and enthusiasm into every event she sings at, treating each as if it were her last. Put simply, Amy is magnetic!

Leo
No-one plays a groove on the bass like Leo. Due to his heavy funk background he locks into a riff instantly and is meticulous down to every single note. His bass skills are constantly in high demand and he lends his talents to many in need of a 'one take wonder' all over the UK and overseas. Leo writes and records regularly for television and his credits include Al Scott (The Levellers), Ace (Skunk Anansie), Eliza Doolittle, Carleen Anderson (Brand New Heavies) and Jason Knight (Reef). Playing bass is only half of Leo`s musical talent as he is a monster on the electric guitar too!

Full dancefloor and a fantastic night had by all, a really excellent band, full on recommend.' Steve Turner, Chelmsford, Essex.
