Stripped Back Great 80s songs

Martin and Craig as the Pudenski Brothers perform with a very distinguishable sound especially suited for the smaller venues due to the band having a smaller footprint than a full band, however, the benefit of performing 80s acoustic covers is that with their larger rig they can also play the bigger venues.
