Jeans ‘n Classics returns to the SSO with big hair, neon headbands, and parachute pants.  Go back in musical time to a decade where everybody knew your name, Rose bored you with stories of St. Olaf, and a Carebear stare would fix it all!

The SSO cannot wait to get down with the music of Prince, Eurythmics, and the Go-Gos.  Whether you want to “Walk Like an Egyptian” or “wake up before you go-go”, we’ve got it and we want all the yuppies to come get rad.

Jeans N Classics

The early ’80s matched and even surpassed the ’60s for new bands, sounds and most of all fabulous songs. New music was everywhere and radio again was king. In this tribute to that era we are thrilled to present the music of Tears For Fears, The Bangles, George Michael, Prince, Heart, Bananarama, The B-52s, Cindy Lauper and many more.
