ONE night. ONE show. ONE BIG PARTY! In November of 1982, 8084 performed their first show together with the current line-up. Since that time, the Billboard and International award-winning musicians have released 5+ albums of original material that received critical acclaim in both the USA and Europe as well as performing in excess of 4500 live shows. Sharing the stage with such acts as Aldo Nova, Toto, April Wine, Warrant, Edgar Winter, Blue Oyster Cult, Henry Lee Summer, the band’s debut release “8084” sold in excess of 10,000 copies in the Netherlands alone. A dynamic team comprised of lead vocalist Randy Smith and Grammy-nominated guitarist-producer André Maquera, 8084 also boasts the talents of bassist-vocalist Frank Barnes and drummer Gary “Spud” Spaulding.
