Formed in 2011 after answering a Craigslist Ad, Nite Wave is a band passionate about 80s New Wave and putting on a night you’ll never forget. We have had the privilege of being hand picked by Billy Idol to open up for him on tour and have also shared the stage with Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s, Clive Farrington of When in Rome and Multi-Platinum selling artist Tiffany.

Everything from Prince to Depeche Mode to Duran Duran to INXS and more!

Nite Wave pays homage to the artists who designed a decade and bring a certain energy to their shows that is unique and infectious.

    These guys are so good. Seen them in Seattle as Tiger Tiger, doing only Duran Duran tunes and again in Spokane opening for Billy Idol. I’d love to add a 3rd town, and see them as the headliner.
