Rapid City Summer Nights

The Synthetics

The Synthetics have one goal: To recreate and revive the sound, look and feel of the New Wave movement of the 1980’s. With Greg ‘Spike’ Brandriet (synths, guitar, vocals), Todd Christensen (drums, vocals), Chris Roman (bass, synths) and Rob Wechsler (guitar, synths, vocals), the Synthetics are loaded with enough talent and versatility to recreate the music of the 80’s with sonic precision. The Synthetics cover the giants like Duran Duran, The Cars, Talking Heads, INXS, Flock Of Seagulls, Billy Idol and R.E.M., along with many of the ‘one-hit-wonder’ acts like Gary Numan, Soft Cell, Simple Minds, and everything in between. When they hit the “big” stage, the Synthetics are joined by Angela and Michelle, who crank out the female groups of the 80’s, such as Cyndi Lauper, Blondie and The Eurythmics.

The Synthetics finish it off with skinny ties, checkered shoes, and enough electronics to power a small country…all to ensure that you are transported from the dance floor to the Decade of Excess with “that one song, you know, that one from the 80’s by that one group with the funny hats…what’s that band called again? Maybe the Synthetics play it…”
