Our mission: To learn every song...EVER! (Excluding Hall & Oates) 

Since 2010, Decades (based in Chico, CA) has been working (and rocking) around the clock to learn material spanning from the 1940's (Glenn Miller's Orchestra's "In The Mood") to today (Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk").  The band has played over 600 shows all along the West Coast, and are well on their way to booking another 125+ shows for 2017, earning its place as one of California's most in-demand bands. Throughout a single show, they'll swap between several instruments (including saxophone, harmonica, penny whistle, ocarina to name a few) and belt out four part harmonies, showcasing each members' musical versatility, while continuing to put on a highly energetic live show.

Decades' impressive catalog, mixed with its young talents (ages 27-30), has led to numerous achievements and highlights. Some notable performances include playing the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco in 2016,  the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Santa Cruz beach shows, the Hawaiian islands for 3 consecutive years, a 4th of July rooftop show at Harrah's Casino in Lake Tahoe and opening for both "Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles" and "The Drifters".  Decades' debut album, Take Me Back, and their sophomore album, Way Up High, were recorded by Grammy-nominated producer, Sylvia Massy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prince, Johnny Cash, Tool) and have independently sold over 2,000 units.  After playing for the Oakland Raiders on four separate occasions, Raider Hall-of-Famer Fred Biletnikoff said of the group, "Decades is a Hall-of-Fame Band". 

Though Decades' live show contains music from Chuck Berry to Katy Perry, their debut album is meant to be a "tip o' the hat" to the generation that triggered the age of rock and roll: the 50s. Below is a selection of songs from Take Me Back

Samantha Francis - Vocals, Percussion, Guitar, Keyboard, Harmonica, Penny Whistle, Ocarina
Ben Ruttenburg - Vocals, Keyboards, Guitar, Percussion
Will Watje - Lead Guitar, Saxophone, Vocals, Slide Guitar, Keyboard
Tobias Brooks - Bass Guitar, Vocals, Trumpet
Billy DiBono - Drums
