Since 2010, Decades (from Chico, CA) has been working (and rocking) around the clock to learn material spanning from the 1940s (Glenn Miller Band’s “In The Mood”) to today (Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk”). The band has more than 100 confirmed performances throughout the West Coast for 2015, proving its place as one of California’s most in-demand bands. During each show, the musicians move from instrument to instrument, including saxophone, harmonica, and trumpet, showcasing each member’s amazing versatility, all while putting on a highly energetic live show.
Decades’ impressive catalog, mixed with its young talents (ages 26-28), has led to numerous achievements and highlights. The band has performed more than 400 shows since its formation, including support for The Drifters in 2013, a performance in Hawaii in 2014, and support for “Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles” in 2015.
Decades’ debut album, Take Me Back, has independently sold more than 1,400 copies and was recorded by Grammy-nominated producer Sylvia Massy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prince, Johnny Cash, Tool, System Of A Down). In 2014, the band premiered Decades 2013: The Road to 125 Shows, a documentary giving an inside look at life on the road. The documentary was accepted into the 2015 Louisville Film Festival.
