Don't stop believing
The Mega '80s claim the decade matters after all
Published: July 11, 2012
Since '99, the Mega 80s have been playing regularly at the Magic Bag in Ferndale (once or twice a month in the summer, and more than that come late fall). The shows never bomb, and people keep coming back. How can the Mega 80s keep drawing when other bands can't seem to buy a crowd, especially in this economy?
"We're playing classic music, but I think they come back because the performance changes," Denha says. "You can see the band play the exact same songs, but the feel will change, or the laughs between songs will change."
The singer pauses, then finishes with, "Still, I'm always amazed there are people there. Every night, I'm like, 'Yes! I'm still employed.'"
The Mega 80s will perform July 13, July 21, Aug. 3, and more dates after that, at the Magic Bag, 22920 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-544-3030; see themagicbag.com.
