The Wavos' Song List 

It's no secret that The Wavos love the pop/rock of the '80s, especially the new wave tunes! But we're big fans of all kinds of danceable alternative rock, so a couple years ago we thought it'd be fun to work up some classic '90s songs into our shows. After many tries, only a couple of the '90s songs stuck, like Nine Inch Nails' "Closer" for Halloween. It seems like our audience just wants to hear the '80s greats, and they want to DANCE! And that's OK with us!

So that's what we've been focusing on, along with a couple of original songs. From time to time we add more '80s slash new wave tunes, mostly sticking with popular songs that are danceable. We'd love to hear your suggestions.
