Checkered Past

 Anaheim, California, USA

Southern California's Totally 80's Totally Fun Band. Playing a variety of top hits from ONLY the 80's! We dress the part, act the part and will transform your event into an all out 80's Dance Party!


Checkered Past is made up of five multi-talented, live performance musicians who bring studio quality music to the stage night after night. In addition to the core band we can add a three piece horn section and additional vocalists on a moment's notice. Between us we have nearly 100 years of combined playing experience. Knowing what to play, when to play it and at what volume to play it, are key ingredients to a successful event. We are flexible and can custom tailor our services to meet the demands of just about any budget. We can work with your venue's sound system and personnel or we can provide a complete state of the art sound and lighting system.
