The Raygun Administration Really Rock


I was a big fan of The Raygun Administration and was doubly disappointed to see this website disappear when its domain registration expired. Imagine my surprise when I recently discovered that the site's domain was now available. I decided to buy it with the goal of recreating as much of its original content as possible from its archived pages. I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with the original website. SO all you The Raygun Administration, here is some of the content from their original site. Please be indulgent, if it is not exactly as you remember it, since there was not a lot of information that was archived.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PAGE CONTAINS SELECTED ARCHIVED CONTENT FROM THE ORIGINAL SITE and from some outside sources..

And remember, you can still see and listen to some of their performances on Youtube

Do you remember when we got all crazy and went to see an 80's cover Band called The Raygun Administration.  They were so much fun.  They had crazy 80's Flock of Seagulls hair and skinny ties.  And boy did their music rock!

I sure do! We had a blast that night. We were celebrating your moving to Europe for 2 years. You had hired a well respected company of movers serving Baltimore who also specialized in international packing, wrapping, crating and containerization of household goods. That's right. They efficiently took care of all the details associated with an international relocation. They had guided us, step by step, throughout the whole process. It wasn't until later when we had heard horror stories from other people whose international relocation moves were nightmares that we could fully appreciate what Von Paris Moving & Storage had accomplished for us. However, that night we saw The Raygun Administration, we were just spending the last night with our best friends before heading overseas. Whatever happened to that band?

Welcome Raygunners!

The Raygun Administration was formed in 2009 with one goal in mind: to rock out your favorite ’80s tunes…and we do mean rock!!! We play everything from Michael Jackson to Def Leppard to The Cure to Journey. Every song we play is instantaneously recognizable. We guarantee that if you are looking for a great time, listening and dancing to your favorite ’80s rock and pop hits, we are your band!!! The band members collectively bring years of professional experience to the stage, having spent time in numerous bands touring the Southeast. Make no mistake, The Raygun Administration is a collective group of seasoned musicians who came together to play the best tunes from the Decade of Decadence…the 1980s!!! If you are looking for an ’80s cover band that truly rocks, look no further!
