The Parker Turns Back the Clock

A Night of Hits and Nostalgia as A Flock of Seagulls and Strangelove Shine at The Parker.

January 13th, 2024

The atmosphere at The Parker was electrifying as the night kicked off with the vibrant performance of Strangelove, a Los Angeles-based Depeche Mode tribute band. The venue was packed, and right from the start, the audience was captivated by the energy of the lead singer, Leo Luganskiy. Accompanied by the skillful keyboard players Brent Meyer, Julian Sha-Tayler, and James Evans, the band took the crowd on a nostalgic journey with hits like “Master and Servant” and “Just Can’t Get Enough.” The 80s vibes had everyone dancing and singing along.

In a brilliant twist, midway through the act, Strangelove introduced their new member, drummer Chris Olivas. This addition elevated the show to new heights, infusing real drum lines into the already fantastic performance, creating a robust and unforgettable experience. As the night concluded with iconic hits like “Strangelove” and “Personal Jesus,” the audience was left with the euphoric sensation of time travel. Strangelove is not just a tribute for 80s enthusiasts; it’s a highly recommended show for everyone.

Later in the evening, the arrival of A Flock of Seagulls drew a massive crowd of 80s enthusiasts, with many embracing the fun spirit by donning wigs reminiscent of Mike Score’s iconic haircut. The venue buzzed with excitement as the band delivered an amusing and well-assembled show, featuring well-known hits like “The More You Live, The More You Love,” “Space Age Love Song,” and an extended version of “Telecommunication.” The night reached its peak with the classic “I Ran (So Far Away).”

This time around, the band showcased a newer lineup with Gord Deppe on guitars, Kevin Rankin on drums, and “Pando” on bass, who actively engaged with the audience. Mike Score’s vocals and keyboard prowess were impeccable, showcasing that his talent remains undiminished over the years. If you missed the show, make a note to catch them next time they visit South Florida; it’s an experience that shouldn’t be missed.
