Join the ultimate tribute to Depeche Mode at Newport Dunes, with special guests Private Eyes, a Hall & Oates Tribute

This ’80s night will be full of great music and dancing with bars and food trucks. Held inside the Bayside Pavilion, it will be an evening not to be missed.

Los Angeles based STRANGELOVE-The Depeche Mode Experience delivers a career spanning, pitch perfect “best of” concert that transports the listener through time and touches on several key points in Depeche Mode’s illustrious career. Songs from throughout the Depeche canon are lovingly recreated; from favorites on DM’s debut Speak and Spell to the newest fare from ‘Mode’s latest- 2017’s “Spirit”. No detail of STRANGELOVE’s presentation has been overlooked. The visual presentation with stage set pieces and in-show costume changes reflect different eras of Depeche Mode’s story; which spans almost four decades!

Truly evocative of a Depeche Mode arena/stadium stage show; the scale of STRANGELOVE’s theatrical stage production is unparalleled, save for the real article. Custom-produced multimedia projection visuals delight the concertgoer’s senses and enhance the illusion that they’re witnessing an actual Depeche Mode concert.

These accomplished musicians have a reverence and devotion to Depeche Mode’s body of work that has driven them to recreate every possible detail and bring the “Music To The Masses” in a concert setting that transcends a mere tribute production and feels more like a shared communal fan club celebration of halcyon days of new wave and emerging electronica. Accuracy and authenticity is a hallmark of the project, with the band employing as many authentic vintage synthesizers and samplers as possible in recreating the classic and widely varied sounds of Depeche Mode’s discography.

STRANGELOVE –The Depeche Mode Experience brings a thoroughly enjoyable and staggeringly authentic DM concert to concertgoers, and connects with international audiences, wherever the group performs.

Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates – Private Eyes

Private Eyes, a Tribute to Daryl Hall & John Oates, was formed in 2018. Their mission was clear and precise, to deliver the timeless music from the best-selling duo of all time. This Los Angeles based band is the only Hall & Oates tribute to feature note for note renditions of all the greatest hits as well as some choice fan favorites.

Founder, Music Director, and Bassist Chris Willshire undertook a nation wide search for the right vocalist who could replicate the blue-eyed soul of Daryl Hall, only to find frontman Mark Wilson in his own San Fernando Valley backyard.

Mark’s diverse background includes having toured with Frankie Valli as one of the Four Seasons, serving as an opening act for Tina Turner, as well as contributing background vocals for John Denver & Garth Brooks, and as a member of the Grammy-nominated Los Angeles Jazz Choir.

A TV editor by day, Bassist Chris Willshire’s credits include such CW shows as Supernatural, The Flash, Arrow, and Black Lightning, and episodes of Bravo’s Top Chef.

He met future Oates, Nate Beausoleil, while working on HGTV shows Flip or Flop and House Hunters. Nate is an in demand Field Audio Engineer for House Hunters, as well as for indie film and documentaries.

Drummer Mat Miranda has performed at multiple Disney properties as well as on international cruise ship tours. He is also an acclaimed drum line instructor as well as a Top 3 finalist at the Indoor Drumline World Competition.

When Tyler Varnell isn’t playing his sexy sax and keyboards for Private Eyes, he works as an award-winning and nationally ranked wedding/events entertainer. He honed his formidable musical skills at Berklee’s College of Music as well as Pepperdine’s Jazz Ensemble.

Andre Ribiero doubles as our soundscape secret weapon, recreating H & O’s trademark synth textures. He has extensive live experience as a drummer, keyboardist/programmer, as well as providing lighting and production services for such stars as Mumford and Sons, Ashlee Simpson, and Queen Latifah to name a few.

This event is inside the Bayside Pavilion, an indoor special event venue at Newport Dunes Resort. We will have food trucks and bars at the event.
