Prom Date Mixtape is the Ultimate Live 80s New Wave Experience! Recently named “The Greatest 80s Tribute Band in the Pacific Northwest” by KOMO TV 4’s Seattle Refined, Prom Date Mixtape delivers the most authentic and energetic renditions of your favorite decade-defining new wave, Pop, and Rock tunes that you will ever hear.
Are you expecting big hair, crazy fashions, and larger-than-life personalities that practically fill a venue? Good, because we don’t shy away from emulating anything that made the 80s a golden era for live performance. Our act features male and female lead vocalists, live horns, dazzling lights, and custom visuals to transport our audience back to the time of lively discotheques.
As a dedicated 80s cover band, we have an intense love for Classic Pop and Rock music and hope our passion for our craft shines through in every performance. We are not a joke band adorning ridiculous costumes and wigs -- in fact, we’re far from it. We’re totally serious about what we do, and we feel you’ll notice our conviction the moment we hit the stage.
Together, our members have decades of collective experience performing live. Our co-founder, vocalist and programmer Patrick Napper is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who has performed across the country from New York to Los Angeles. Bonded by their shared love for New Wave, Punk, and Synth-Pop music, Patrick was inspired to form an 80s tribute band with fellow music performer and longtime friend, Daniel Harper.
Co-founder, guitarist and media manager Daniel Harper began his musical endeavors playing bass guitar in his high school jazz band. In the past 11 years, Daniel has performed and recorded with many unique groups that span a wide range of genres throughout the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Daniel’s love and excitement for the music he grew up with fuels his every performance.
