AUGUSTA, GA -Blue Cap Entertainment in conjunction with the Augusta GreenJackets announced today that the Replay America - Ultimate 80's Festival, featuring Billy Ocean, Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, Taylor Dayne, The Motels featuring Martha Davis and Naked Eyes, will perform live on stage at Lake Olmstead Stadium on Saturday, August 12.
Billy Ocean is the biggest black recording star Britain has ever produced, one who has sold over 30 million records in his lifetime. He has collected a pile of Gold and Platinum records across the world and hit the number one spot worldwide on pop charts including the USA, Australia, Germany, Holland, and the UK. Billy has achieved extraordinary success as both an artist and a songwriter.
Mickey Thomas is the owner of the soaring voice that propelled Starship through the decades of the 80's and 90's. With his soulful and compelling vocals, Mickey has established himself as one of Rock Music's most recognizable stars. Backed by Mickey's Vocals Jefferson Starship immediately scored a #1 hit with "Jane". With the new sound and powerful vocals, the group was renamed Starship and continued to record an amazing string of hits including "No Way Out", "We Built This City", "Sara", and an Oscar Nomination for the #1 hit "Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now" from the movie "Mannequin".
From platinum pop songs to chart-topping dance hits, Taylor Dayne is one of the most popular vocalists of the modern age. She has enjoyed 10 hits in three consecutive decades, selling a combined 75 million singles and albums along the way. With the release of her first two albums, 1988's Tell It To My Heart and 1989's Can't Fight Fate, Dayne racked up three #1 singles "Tell It To My Heart", "Love Will Lead You Back" and "Prove Your Love to Me". Her Grammy nominated songs could be heard across the radio dial, from Top 40 stations to adult contemporary channels.
Her voice is unique, unmistakable and timeless - The Los Angeles Times's Robert Hilburn called her "…arguably the most charismatic female performer in rock." And about the Hollywood Bowl Concert in 2012. The Hollywood Reporter wrote: Martha Davis, of the Motels, was still strong in voice and admirably delivered hits like "Only The Lonely" and "Suddenly Last Summer".
Naked Eyes produced numerous hits in the 80's including "Always Something There To Remind Me" "Promises, Promises" and "When The Lights Go Out" which led to massive US Radio airplay and an almost constant presence on MTV.
