We survived the 80’s and we did it in style. While Madonna created the term “Boy Toy”, others of us came up with the terms “Air Head”, “Eat My Shorts”, “Gag Me With A Spoon”, “Totally” and many more. If you wore your hair in a mullet, you were in fashion. The 80s started the multi-color hair trend. The fashions with the parachute pants, leg warmers, and oh yes, the music. Well Hudson Gardens decided to take fans down the 80’s memory lane Sunday, June 11, 2017 by welcoming Survivor and Loverboy. Kristi Manz (Concert and Special Events Manager for Hudson Gardens Events Center) put together a great fun lineup for the concert stage and it was “Gnarly”!
Jammin’ to the band Survivor had the crowd dancing, singing, and put everyone in full-fledged party mood. Opening with 3 great songs (‘Feels Like Love’, ‘Broken Promises’ and ‘High on You’, the energized crowd rocked the night away. As Survivor played for over an hour, the audience loved every minute of the show.
Later, the 80’s band Loverboy took center stage. With the fun songs of ‘Notorius’, ‘Queen of the Broken Hearts’ and ‘Lucky Ones’ as their opening three songs, Loverboy relived a lot of their major hits. As the night progressed and the songs ‘Working for the Weekend’, ‘Take Me to the Top’, ‘Kid is Hot Tonight’ and so much more, how could the night be anything but a great time! Many in the audience were saying it was time to ‘Turn Me Loose’,
From age 5 to age 82, the audience – and their outfits, had the time of their lives. With the summer just heating up, there is much more music to be enjoyed and much more partying to be had. Curious who is next on the stage at Hudson Gardens, check them out. To see more photos, select either Loverboy or Survivor.
