We had a GREAT time! Danced all night to the biggest hits of the 80's! The singer does all the songs justice and you're gonna laugh your butt off at their costumes and on-stage antics! So much fun!

The Spazmatics will bring “all the best of the worst of the 1980’s, to the present” at City National Grove of Anaheim on Saturday, September 17! The Spazmatics are the ultimate ’80s experience that performs some of the most popular hits of the decade, complete with geeky charm, “nerdography,” and “spaztic” movements.

The Spazmatics started back in spring of 1983 when physics professor Kevin Stigwood of Thousand Oaks, California, lost a debate to a pupil in front of the entire student body and faculty. The loser would have to do anything that the winner demanded, and the victorious prodigy demanded that Mr. Stigwood perform “She Blinded Me With Science” by Thomas Dolby during half-time at an upcoming state basketball championship game.

Having no musical background and desperate to not go down in total humiliation, Professor Stigwood formed The Spazmatics by tapping the genius of electronics teacher, Sidney Baderman (AKA “Sid Sonic”). When Baderman explained that most of the music could be generated by computers, and all he needed was a couple of decent musicians to complete The Spazmatics, Stigwood was ecstatic. To finish out the band, Stigwood brought in his brother Curtis on bass, and teacher’s assistant Rusty A. Woosmeir (AKA “The Raw”) on guitar.

When The Spazmatics took center court, heckling and jibes of “geek” and “nerd” ensued, while others howled with laughter. Once they broke into the opening salvo of “Science,” the nonbelievers were stunned by the group’s authenticity of production, world class musicianship, and tight choreography. When it was all over, the crowd rose in a standing ovation and The Spazmatics were born.

In addition to a commercial for Comcast, The Spazmatics have also been featured at top nightclubs, and have performed at many high level private events in the United States, including performances for former President George W. Bush, and celebrities like Jessica Simpson.
