Oingo Boingo Former Members

Oingo Boingo Former Members, the esteemed ensemble of musicians who once graced the stage as part of the legendary band Oingo Boingo, continue to carry the torch of their groundbreaking legacy. With an iconic new wave and rock sound, Oingo Boingo left an enduring mark on the music world.

Led by original members including Johnny “Vatos” Hernandez, Sam “Sluggo” Phipps, Carl Graves, Steve Bartek and John Avila, and joined by Brendan McKian (lead vocals), Mike Glendinning (vocals, rhythm guitar), Freddy Hernandez (bass) and Brian Swartz (trumpet) to form Oingo Boingo Former Members, this extraordinary reunion promises an authentic and electrifying performance, celebrating the spirit of a band that forever defined the 80s music scene.


Dramarama, the trailblazing alternative rock band, emerged from New Jersey in the early 1980s, captivating audiences with their raw energy and introspective lyrics. With hits like “Anything, Anything (I’ll Give You),” they left an indelible mark on the 80s music scene. Celebrated for their dynamic performances and timeless sound, Dramarama continues to mesmerize fans old and new with their signature blend of rock and soul.

The English Beat

The English Beat, a pioneering ska and new wave band hailing from Birmingham, England, burst onto the music scene in the late 1970s with their infectious rhythms and socially conscious lyrics. With unforgettable hits like “Mirror in the Bathroom” and “Save It for Later,” The English Beat created a genre-blending sound that resonated worldwide. Their vibrant performances and timeless music continue to inspire and uplift audiences, making them an unmissable act at the upcoming 80s concert.
