We've created this station, Facebook group and website to bring back our favorite music and remember the best times of our lives.
In doing so we've discovered that people are eager to revisit their glory days and for many that means indulging in a little bit of hair metal, glam rock, pretty boys jamming with electric toys and all the excitement that went with it.
Tribute bands are a big draw for people when they can't see the original bands, They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery and cover bands or tribute bands are definitely flattering.
Rather than being a tribute band that covers just one band, like Motley Inc. with Motley Crue, or Poison Overdose with Poison there's a band out of Orange County, California that covers hair bands. That's right, Power Serge is a band that completely flatters the hell out of all the bands and people that we mid-lifers used to be and love.
The great thing about Power Serge is that when they play, people from all over come running. It's a chance to experience the 80s, hairspray,teased hair and spandex all over again for some of us and for the first time for others. Jimmy Alvarez of The OC Weekly said:
"It’s no surprise that ‘80s Glam Metal music and big hair is the great communicator and unifier between 30 to 50-year old’s and teens. That combination of power ballads and big hair has been such a weird fascination, it’s like a time machine. It can immediately transport you to any point in time, be it good, or bad. The thing about music, unlike people, it is always there for you and never lets you down. That is the draw for a band that does it right."

Our hope is that through our station we can invoke that same feeling of nostalgia, love and happiness that Power Serge's fans feel! Let us know how we're doing!!!
