The Washington D.C.-based Legwarmers formed in 2001 when guitarist/vocalist Cru Jones and vocalist-guitarist Gordon Gartrell saw a terrible cover band butcher one of their favorite ‘80s songs. Inspired, the pair decided to form a group that would do right by the most iconic hits of the Reagan era. Along the way, they recruited singer Roxanne Rio, bassist/vocalist Chet Reno drummer Levaar Huxtable, saxophonist Clarence McFly and keyboardist Capt. Morgan Pando. Today, the Legwarmers have established themselves as the preeminent ‘80s cover band of the modern era.
