ALLEGRO 80 is a premium, fun and exciting new Cover Band, with a repertoire list that spans from Bruno Mars to Kool & The Gang to Toto to Whitney Houston and more!
The term Allegro has an Italian origin and can be directly defined as “Lively” which is a perfect description of the band. The musical definition of Allegro is “performed at a brisk speed” which is also apt, as the band brings the energy with some great uptempo hit songs, and the entire team focuses on the service of the entertainment business.
With performance delivery and the constant fine-tuning of understanding each new audience at the forefront of the band’s focus, Allegro 80 consists of 3 premier vocalists i.e TYE PLATINUM, LEA HEART AND CLINT BRINK.
(Did we mention that the 80 is representative of them all being 80’s kids?) Top 40? Old School? Motown? Swing? Duets? We’ve got it all. Perfect for that time of your event that you want your group on the dance floor (after a long evening of speeches) or just as suitable for the first dance at your wedding (eek!), and even great as a live and palatable soundtrack over that amazing dinner you’ll be having (at your year-end soiree).
