Howard Jones
Howard Jones
It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene and brought his very English song-writing and pioneering synthesizers to an unsuspecting world. Anyone who was around in the mid to late eighties will remember those high energy gigs and his first two albums Human's Lib and Dream into Action. They lived in the higher reaches of the album charts in the UK, USA, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Canada, Australia and many other countries in the 1984-86 period and the hits kept coming…"New Song", "What is Love?", "Pearl in the Shell", "Hide and Seek" (which he performed at Live Aid in 1985), "Like to Get to Know You Well", "Look Mama", "Things Can only Get Better", "Everlasting Love" and the quintessential "No One is To Blame", which reached No.1 in the US.

Always one to take chances, Jones continues to write great songs inspired by his Buddhist beliefs as is evident on his latest studio album Ordinary Heroes which features a string quartet on every track and one of the best Welsh male voice choirs in the world The Morriston on the song "Soon You'll Go".

But will mark the return of one of the true eighties icons and godfathers of modern electronic dance music in full electric mode. If you were too young the first time around it'll be a chance to find out where all those beats and sounds came from, and if you were around it'll bring all those memories flooding back.
Men Without Hats
Men Without Hats
Thirty years ago, they told the world, "You can dance if you want to" — and the world listened.

A few years later they instructed the same planet, the third, to go "Pop" –- and the world did.

After creating iconic and irresistible pop music for three decades, Men Without Hats have soared back with the release of their latest album, *Love in the Age of War*

Led by their charismatic front man and songwriter, Ivan Doroschuk, Men Without Hats have surged to the forefront in recent years. Their breakout show at 2011′s South by Southwest Music Festival kicked off a successful tour of Canada and the United States. In 2012, Men Without Hats embarked on extensive, well-received touring across South and North America, and in February 2013, the band entertained audiences on a whirlwind European tour — their first visit to that continent in 20 years!

Along with keyboard players Lou Dawson and Rachel Ashmore, and guitarist James Love, Ivan and the Hats have been delivering high-energy shows packed with all of the band's absurdly catchy lyrics as well as great tracks from the new release, a disc that picks up right where the hit-making band left off.

"Sure, lots has changed in music over the last few decades, " says Ivan, "but the world still loves a hooky song with a bit of edge that can get you thinking."

And that's exactly what the Hats deliver: tracks that will get you bopping across the dance floor with subtle messages that will haunt you long after the music has ended. It's no surprise that this band has topped charts across the planet and even picked up a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.

The Hats song catalogue always sounds fresh and relevant, and over the years, Hats hits have been featured on The Simpsons, Family Guy and Glee. "The Safety Dance" now lights up TV screens in a Lipton Iced Tea commercial featuring Hugh Jackman, and the main riff of "Pop Goes The World" is now a popular cheer at soccer stadiums around the world.

Men Without Hats have been providing a hit-filled, catchy soundtrack for our lives since the '80s and the band powers magnificently into the 21st Century with a steady stream of jaw-dropping live shows and a fantastic new album.

You still can "dance if you want to" — and Men Without Hats still makes it easy and fun!
All Hail The Silence
All Hail The Silence
All Hail the Silence is an electronic music/synthpop/throwback project consisting of two members: electronic musician Brian Transeau and singer-songwriter Christian Burns. The band was informally announced on March 8, 2012, but live shows and project announcements did not commence until the second half of 2014.

All Hail the Silence and the subsequent album are notable in that they were created using analog synthesizers without the aid of a computer.
