Miss the '80s? You're in luck

The Bridge Lounge presents XLR8 for one night only this Saturday for a flashback to the sounds of the '80s.

XLR8 is an entertaining rock show that consists of five seasoned musicians with a 14-year history. They insist on audience participation and you never know what surprises they will spring on you!

Mr. D on guitars/vocals is a frontman known for getting the crowd clapping and singing along. Billy Young from Toronto is on lead guitar/vocals.

British-born Johnny B. is an award-winning drummer including a Juno Award with No. 1 hit Roxy Roller with Sweeney Todd. He also played with Nick Gilder, Bryan Adams, Holly Woods and Toronto.

Randy Z is a multi-instrumentalist on bass guitar/vocals, bringing his funky feel to the band. Rick Bossom, well-respected on the music scene, contributes keyboards and vocals to the ever-evolving sound of XLR8.

XLR8 brings their big sound, big lights, big drums, big fun and lots of entertainment, to keep the dance floor full and a party atmosphere to the Bridge. An '80s rock 'n roll extravaganza for sure!

XLR8 hits the stage at 9:30 p.m.
