Baddest 80’s Band in the World.

80’s Cover Band, ThunderPants, is a Houston tribute act since 2005 with over 500+ shows in and around Texas. Started as a “whatever” band and later transforming into a full 80’s tribute cover band. Started by MCDX (aka. SexySexy AwesomeSauce), Tbag Baggins and Sir William Stuart, they played b-sides and heavy alt-rock. SoyGeorge soon joined on lead guitar and morphed into an 80’s act when the House of Blues opened in Downtown Houston. Since then, the line-up has changed little but added a lot with SusieQ on vocals and Kelly Manbrock on keys (eventually bass?).
