THE LOST BOYS BAND: THE STORY
The Lost Boys have been rockin’ H-Town and the Lone Star state since 2005!!!
The Lost Boys have taken Texas by storm… setting club records and entertaining the masses with non-stop 80s hits! With each performance, they bring the 80s back to life… covering all the familiar pop hits, glam rock and new wave/punk of the ME Decade– performing them to perfection just as the original artists did. This band doesn't have to "put their own spin" on each song - hear all the songs you love (and some you thought you forgot!) the same way they were played in that decadent decade.

The band has performed all across the state of Texas and top venues in Houston, including Reliant Stadium, Toyota Center, Discovery Green, the Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship, City Hall, Rice University, the House of Blues, The Woodlands, Jones Plaza, Robertson Stadium, and Sugar Land Town Square.
The Lost Boys have played every major venue in Houston and were a weekly staple in Houston’s Midtown for four years.
The Lost Boys have been featured on Great Day Houston, in Local Houston Magazine, The Houston Press, The Houston Chronicle, Houston Music News, Envy Magazine, Houston Free Press, Midtown Paper, Cowboy Dave Show, KHOU-TV, VAN-TV, 106.9 THE POINT, and 104 KRBE, just to name a few media outlets!

With her operatic and broadway training, the only thing she can’t sing is Death Metal and dark, gritty alto warblings… oh, well. We all have our limitations.

Yes, you will see him rockin' 80's tunes with the Lost Boys.
Guitarist Michael Lee was born in San Antonio, Texas & weened on hard rock and heavy metal… Favorite influences were Judas Priest, Van Halen, AC/DC, Styx, Night Ranger, and Def Leppard. The 80s bug bit him hard– and has since never let go…
A champion of the stage, he studied acting and theatre in London at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. But graduating with a degree in Advertising, he went on to film and video pursuits… leaving his passion for music and acting behind.
As a television writer, editor, and Emmy-nominated producer, he’s produced “The E! True Hollywood Story,” “TV Tales,” “Rank,” “Fashion Emergency” and “Wild On” for E! Networks, “Texas Justice” for Fox, and locally, “The Debra Duncan Show” for ABC/Buena Vista Television and ‘NewsFix’ for Tribune Media. And a host of sports events and travelogues for national cable networks…
And Mike has done his part professionally to keep the 80s alive. Producing a special “Back To The Eighties” tribute in 2002, he brought the original band, Berlin, to Houston to perform on the show. (Hey, where do you think “Bands Reunited” got their inspiration?) And in 1999, he co-produced the reunion concert of The Go-Go’s live from NYC. (yes, Belinda Carlisle fell in love with him… how could she resist?)
In 2003, after returning from another TV stint in LA, he formed The Lost Boys to bring the “80s Retro Wave” of West Hollywood back east to the Bayou City. The band represents an opportunity to return to his musical roots while remaining at home in the entertainment spotlight.
ANDREW "BOY WONDER" RICHARDSON
Keyboardist Andrew Richardson oozes Nashville pride. Not only did he pick up a degree in music from Belmont University in Music City, but he also played in a country-blues band there for five years (“uh, stick with us kid… you’ll go places.”) And, he hung out with the beautiful daughters of Mr. Monday Night Football, Hank Williams, Jr. (Yes, Holly Williams!)
Andrew Richardson was born into a home in Houston, Texas, where music was a big part of daily life. And 80’s music was constantly inspiring, as it sung out from the radio, tape player or record player. He can even remember writing songs as far back as the third grade. He took some rudimentary piano and guitar lessons, but after a certain point began teaching himself to play by listening to songs repeatedly and duplicating them note for note. In high school and his freshman year of college, he was a member of Houston’s awesome blues band The Poorboys with notable legendary Houston blues badass, The Mighty Orq – “we had amazing bands opening for us like Blue October, Tumbledown, and Deep Ella!”
The rest of his college years were spent at Belmont University, off Nashville’s Music Row, earning a music business degree, constantly in the campus recording studio, and rocking Nashville and other cities (in other states) in a southern rock band called Crooked Creek.
After living in a couple of other cities like Los Angeles and Austin, he decided to return to Houston. It wasn’t long before he met a drummer that was starting an 80’s cover band (at the time a nameless band) looking for a keyboard player. He has been in The Lost Boys family since then and has never looked back! He also writes and records original music in his home studio where he sings and plays all instruments.
