KINGSTON, ON (October 19, 2017) – The United Way of KFL&A is excited to announce a night of live music complete with hairstyles and outfits from the eighties. On October 27th, an 80s themed event in support of United Way is taking place at Blu Martini in Kingston,  featuring musical act 80s Enuff.

Pat Murphy, 2017 United Way of KFL&A campaign chair fronts the local band that is known for playing your favourite cover songs from the decade. 80s Enuff encourages people in the area to come out in their flashiest 80s attire for a fun evening of live music, dancing and good times, all in support of the United Way.

“We are thrilled to be playing a show in support of the United Way.” Said Pat Murphy, lead singer of 80s Enuff. “Thousands of people in our community are impacted by United Way programs last year.  Our band is thrilled to help raise some money and give back to our community.”

“Although we focus on a 12-week campaign, the United Way never sleeps,” Murphy added.  “Our community needs your help day after day,” he reminded people. “Every Dollar Counts.”

 About 80s Enuff

80s Enuff Kingston’s “premier party band”, has a single mission during their live performance: to lift the mood of its audience by reliving the sights, sounds, and spirit that defined the 80s decade of music.  You are transported into a high energy, fun-filled audio-visual time warp consisting of rock, hard rock, new wave and heavy metal hit cover songs that dominated the radio airwaves of the 80s era.   The roots of the band lay in a friendship forged by four school chums, Pat Murphy, Adam Check, Brian Overvelde and Derek Cantarutti, while they attended Regiopolis-Notre Dame High School in Kingston, Ontario, Canada back in the late 1980s. http://80senuff.net/
