On Friday, 1980s tribute band Omega Moos reunited for a special late-night show at The Magic Stick in Detroit, MI, following Umphrey’s McGee‘s performance earlier in the evening at The Fillmore. The supergroup which includes Umphrey’s McGee guitarist Brendan Bayliss and bassist Ryan Stasik, as well as keyboardist Jamie Shields (The New Deal) and drummer Nick Blasky, worked through a plethora of favorite ’80s covers.
The quartet opened their one-set show with a cover of Billy Idol‘s “Rebel Yell”, followed by takes on The Police‘s “Masoko Tanga”, Sugarloaf‘s “Green Eyed Lady”, Gary Numan’s “Cars”, and The Human League‘s “Don’t You Want Me”. The band pushed things late into the night as they continued with takes on Duran Duran‘s “Girls On Film”, Corey Hart‘s “Sunglasses At Night”, Foreigner’s “Double Vision”, Loverboy‘s “Working For The Weekend”, and Kool & The Gang‘s “Ladies Night”. The four-piece brought the late-night party to a close with a cover of The Romantics‘ “Talking In Your Sleep”.
Luckily, a fan has shared footage of the entire show which you can enjoy below:
