Our 10-piece 80s cover band The Engagements is playing Friday night and you’re totally invited! It’s the “Cruel Summer” 80s Dance Party.
Performing songs by The Cure, Simple Minds, Hall N Oates, Cameo, Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, GoGos, The Fixx, & more.
This Friday, August 10, 2012, come party with “possibly one of the best cover bands in the universe” (GowanusYourFaceOff.com) at The Bell House in Brooklyn.
Come early to get your New Wave fix with DJ B-Movie, stick around for live 80s band The Engagements covering all the classics, followed by a late night set of funky dance and freestyle hits by Party Like it’s 1999 Steve Reynolds. (Tell us if there’s a song you’ve GOT to hear, we’ll pass it on.)
All night long the Bell House will be serving special $6 cocktails that just happen to be named after things that *might* remind you of the night’s theme: the Rum DMC, the Bananarama, and The Miami Vice, plus the trashiest snack ever, Doritos and nacho cheese (it’s like we’re making the midnight 7-Eleven run for you!)
Rock your favorite 80s look (neon? crop tops? checkered Vans?) and you could win free tickets to any Bell House show of your choice and a John Hughes DVD set.
Tickets are $10 at the door or $5 in advance using the code 1980.

From the previous Engagements Bell House show – the “Undead 80s Zombie Prom”:
“Hordes of Zombies showed up as midnight approached to a dance their faces off! The Engagements, possible one of the best cover bands in the history of the universe, opened the show with a slightly altered version of 1999 in which 99′ was substituted for 89 to match the night’s theme. This was the first of many amazing Prince’s covered featured throughout the night. One the three lead singers, who was dressed as Death, belted out the voice & soul of Prince which shocked the audience because his talent was simply unbelievable. The other singers as well as the entire band produced some of the greatest sounds of 80′s music that we have ever heard. If you ever need a band for a special event or wedding The Engagements are the way to go.
We danced the night away until we felt as dead as all the Zombies in the room. It was one of those nights that was so amazing that words simply can’t do it justice. If you ever hear the words “Undead” and “Bell House” in the same sentence be a part of whatever it is! Thanks Bell House for making us go gaga for Zombies!” – GowanusYourFaceOff.com
