In The Street, Frederick, MD

The In the Street committee is grateful to talents of the Reagan Years. They not only do they draw a huge crowd they create one with non-stop energy and crowd pleasing sets. TRY Rocked the Deck in 2004 to a sold out crowd who chanted "one more song"!

Programming music for large events is no easy task. Trying to please large crowds with music that everyone can love is almost impossible. Luckily, In the Street found the region's best 80's music group that never stops amazing me. Sold out two years straight!

We as a committee are excited about working with and having The Reagan years return for the third consecutive year!

You guys Rock!

When I first saw The Reagan Years in concert, I was hosting an 80's music show on local DC radio. I'm as much a fan of the music today as I was back then. Too often I've found that cover bands struggle to faithfully reproduce the necessary sound, style and energy to make a performance not only fun, but convincing to an audience that truly loves the music. The band's attention to detail and obvious love of the 80's is what has made their authentic performances so memorable, and worth coming back to see.

The Reagan Years have come to be a perennial favorite for our festival. Each year, we receive one positive compliment after another about their fun-filled set. Their participation has come to be one of the festival's highlights for our guests.

This band of seasoned musicians recreates the sounds of the 1980s; a day when Ronald Reagan was President, M-TV first aired, CDs emerged, Acid Washed jeans were "Cool" and alternative music was called "New Wave". This period has resurfaced in today's entertainment industry. Cable TV has multiple segments echoing from the 80's Video Generation, radio stations across the U.S. feature artists from the 1980s in daily "flashback" programs while 1980s anthems have permeated TV commercials. FM, satellite radio and digital cable music providers all have several stations completely dedicated to 1980’s formats.

Since conception in 1996, The Reagan Years has achieved “headline status” in both nightclubs and concert venues such as Baltimore’s Innerharbor amphitheater where repeat performances on New Year’s Eve had attendance estimated over 160,000. The band has been featured on TV and has drawn the attention of the Press as they were featured on CBS WJZ-13 news (2002) and in PA Musician magazine as the cover story (March 1998). Members have appeared on the Baltimore’s 98 Rock Morning show. The band has performed several special events hosted by XM Satellite Radio, 98 Rock, WRNR 103.1, 100.7 The Bay, 106.9 The Eagle and Frederick’s Key 103.1. TRY has opened for 80’s icons such as Psychedelic Furs, Violent Femmes, Starship and Bow Wow Wow. Corporate clients include Baltimore’s City Paper, Wine In The Woods, Lind Promotion’s That 80’s Prom, OC’s SunFest, Caroline SummerFest, Maryland Seafood Festival, City of Herndon, VA, City of Bowie, MD, City of Frederick, MD, City Of Gaithersburg, MD, The British Embassy in DC, ALS Foundation, Power Plant Live! plus several wineries, private businesses and colleges.

The group's stage show either in 80’s costume or not, which reaches the corners of the Mid-Atlantic, creates a party atmosphere filled with fond college and high school memories for those from the 80’s generation as well as a fun, party situation for those born a generation later... Throughout every performance, the quintet changes lead vocalists with both male and female lead singers while playing special requests from the Reagan era. Musical selections although diverse in style, all share the "common thread" of success during the 80's decade.
