Here’s what The Stage newspaper have to say about Popwork 80’s…
“Popwork 80’s closed this first date in the national showcase autumn calendar. Complete with eighties fashions, and kicking off in thumping style with a version of the Frankie Goes to Hollywood sex anthem Relax, Popwork 80’s made a compelling case for a place in the genre tribute market.”
“We had a great night. The band were brilliant, hope to see them again sometime. Thanks to all the staff and to everyone who helped to make it such a good night.”

“We hired Popwork Party Band for my 50th birthday party. I corresponded with the band before the performance which really put my mind at rest and helped select an 80’s themed playlist. The band arrived in plenty of time to set up and sound check – we had hired a marquee with stage and the band ran a ‘live feed’ into the adjacent club house where the bar was, which made sure that everyone could hear the live music, and a before and after set of recorded music.
The performance was absolutely first rate – every one of my guests said that the quality of the performance was absolutely first class, including stage presence, professionalism and the quality of the music. The PA was perfect, producing a great sound which enabled everyone to dance without ever being overpowered.
I cannot speak highly enough of our experience on the night and would recommend Dan and the rest of Popwork to anyone (private individual or corporate) looking for a live band to perform at a wedding, party, charity night or similar function.”
– David Dodge, Private Party, Buxton, Derbyshire
“Popwork 80’s’ were truly brilliant at our event! They turned up early, made everything easy, were a really friendly bunch of guys and extremely professional. Our 80’s party was an absolute triumph and Popwork 80’s were a major factor to it’s success. People danced from the 1st song and it just got better and better. Everybody was asking who they were all night and in fact since we’ve all been back at work, so I would imagine they might be receiving a few more bookings from the York area. Just Brilliant! Thank you.”
“Hi Guys, I am just about recovered from my birthday party last night and getting ready to go out again. I love it when my friends have a good time and I think last night was up there with the best. Popwork’s approach was 100% professional from the moment they arrived right up to going home in the early hours of the morning. I don’t think anyone can say they didn’t enjoy it – everyone danced and joined in. Great choice of music which really hit the spot with the audience and well presented. Let’s hope we can get you back to North Cheshire very soon. Thanks again.”
– Graham Bowcock
“The appearance of the thoroughly splendid four-piece 80s Themed function band Popwork 80s came next, and with the look and sound of their showcase appearance here, this storming band are ready, willing and able to fill any dance floor and their video screen certainly adds atmosphere. ”

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
