The group that eventually became Depeche Mode began when Vince Clarke first teamed with Andy Fletcher in 1976. After several name changes and pulling in guitarist/keyboardist Martin Gore and vocalist Dave Gahan, the name Depeche Mode was finally adopted in 1980 for the four person group.
The band ignored conventional instruments in favor of an all-synthesizer approach similar to other British New Wave bands of the early 1980’s such as Human League and Soft Cell.
Depeche Mode are now, by far, the world’s most popular electronic based bands. The legacy grows each year and their fan base builds — Depeche Mode have sealed their place in music history. Depeche Mode tours internationally through 2017 and 2018.
Depeche Mode are available internationally for select special events. To inquire about pricing and availability of Depeche Mode, e-mail Jay Siegan Presents here.
