Known for their bouffant hairstyles and matching retro outfits, The Romantics were formed on the east side of Detroit on Valentine’s Day in 1977, hence the name The Romantics. Taking the Detroit music scene by storm, The Romantics lit up dive bars and clubs with their high-energy take on pop music from the previous decade. Following the release of singles such as "Little White Lies,” "I Can't Tell You Anything,” "Tell It to Carrie," and "First in Line," The Romantics captured the attention of American record label, Nemperor/Epic, and inked a deal in 1979.
Since then, they have topped the charts with such iconic hits as "What I Like About You," "Talking In Your Sleep" and "One in a Million." With numerous hit songs, international acclaim, and commercial success under their belt, The Romantics continue to achieve success as they actively entertain live audiences around the world.
