Psychedelic Furs tribute Pretty In Pink delivered an unforgettable set of music in front of a sold out crowd at Club 80s in Corona on Saturday afternoon. The audience seemed to make it day to remember for the band as well. Bass guitarist Danny Knapp said, “Sometimes you get to a venue and you just know it’s going to be a special show — one for the books — That’s what I felt today”.
The show was hosted by Richard Blade (DJ for Sirius XM’s First Wave). He opened the show with a DJ set, and then introduced Pretty In Pink, followed by a blazing performance from Devotional – The Depeche Mode Experience.
Danny and all the members of the Psychedelic Furs tribute “Pretty in Pink” sent out a special thank you to Richard Blade (Sirius XM’s First Wave DJ) for his shout-out about the upcoming show at Club 80s in Corona, Ca alongside “Devotional – the Depeche Mode Experience”.
Danny was proud to perform at the first show with one of the newest projects he is involved in, “Show Me The 90s”. This new era-based tribute band plays alt-rock, pop, and hip hop from the 90s. The band includes Jesse Wilder (of The Goodwin Club, touring member of The Specials), drummer Lindsey Martin (touring member of Lilith Czar), and Candace Alayne (director of The Black Veils)

‘Maiden United‘, the Iron Maiden tribute band featuring Danny Knapp as “Steve Hairless” performed at Count’s Vamp’d in Las Vegas.

Danny celebrated 13 years since he started his journey towards a healthier lifestyle. In late February of 2010, he weighed nearly 400 pounds, had a list of physical ailments, and had great difficulty walking. Danny realized he needed to make some serious changes, and by changing his relationship with food and getting 3-4 hours of exercise per week, he managed to transform his body over a 2-year period. Danny has now been maintaining his current lifestyle for 11 years. Danny mentioned, “I will never take for granted what I’ve gained on my road to wellness.”
