Get Ready for a Musical Journey Like No Other!

Hailing from Liverpool, England, The Last Arcade is on a mission to resurrect the nostalgic vibes of the 80s, blending it seamlessly with modern synth-pop and rock. Brace yourselves for a trip down memory lane!

Drawing inspiration from iconic acts like Foreigner, Aha, Depeche Mode, and Genesis, as well as newer sensations like The Midnight and The Weeknd, this band has masterfully crafted a mesmerizing fusion of classic and contemporary music.

Let’s look closer at the members behind this extraordinary musical force. The Last Arcade consists of the captivating vocalist Ste McNally, the guitar virtuoso Paul Garrett, and the synth wizard Steve Erickson. Ste McNally gained fame as part of the sensational band BBMak, with their unforgettable hit, ‘Back Here’. Paul Garrett mesmerised audiences while sharing the stage with Bryan Adams as a member of 10 Reasons. Meanwhile, Steve Erickson has sprinkled his musical magic on projects for Disney, BBMak, Sky TV, and the legendary Andy McLusky of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. This all-star lineup promises a musical experience like no other.
