“Hey! Uh-huh!” The Romantics, best known for the unforgettable, high energy track that still bridges generations, “What I Like About You,” will perform free at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek’s Nectar Lounge. The group was inspired by the British punk invasion and nearly 30 years later are still known for creating some of the most influential and beloved rock and roll of all time.
The group’s original members consisted of lead singer and guitarist Wally Palmer, lead guitarist Mike Skill, bass guitarist Rich Cole and drummer and singer Jimmy Marinos. In 1979, The Romantics released their debut LP, anchored by “What I Like About You,” “When I Look In Your Eyes” and a cover of Ray Davies’ “She’s Got Everything.” The band continued to see success during the ‘80s with In Heat, a platinum album bearing two top ten singles, “Talking In Your Sleep” and “One In A Million.” In addition to being a staple on classic and contemporary rock radio, television commercials and movies, The Romantics continue touring and writing songs today.
