Rubiks Groove Rocks Cool Springs By Johnathan Pushkar
Admit it: You’ve always wanted to see RoboCop play the guitar solo from “Jessie’s Girl.”
Even if you didn’t before, you’ll want to now!
Last evening, Rubiks Groove rocked the Wild Wing Cafe in Cool Springs to a packed house of dancing 80s fans for over two hours of non-stop 80s-bliss.
The band was comprised of seven members, all dressed as 80s nostalgia characters.
The Karate Kid and Pee Wee Herman traded the male vocal songs back and forth while Rainbow Brite carried the female-led songs (and a rendition of Michael Jackson’s "Beat It.”) Teen Wolf and Mario held down the rhythm section on bass and drums, respectively, while Edward Scissorhands rocked the keys and RoboCop shredded his guitar in proper 80s style.
The band never stopped after their first song at 9:30 p.m., and the crowd was energized from the first song throughout the end night.
The band played everything from techno pop to rap, and they encapsulated everything that was great about the 80s music.
From the well-written rock songs to the cheesiest of pop songs, Rubiks Groove covered it all!
This is a band I would highly recommend checking out. You would have thought you took a trip in Doc Brown’s DeLorean Time Machine back to the heyday of the 80s with Rubiks Groove’s perfect song selection, their high energy, and their rapport with the audience.
They’ll be back at the Wild Wing Cafe on New Year’s Eve, and I cannot think of a better way to ring in 2017 than a time warp back to the 80s.
If you are planning to do so, be sure to get there early, because they WILL sell out!
