Publicity Manager, Decades (August 2013 – November 2016)
Since 2010, Decades (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 (Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling”). The band has played over 800 shows all along the West Coast, and is well on its way to booking another 100+ shows for 2019, earning its place as one of California’s most in-demand bands. Throughout a single show, the musicians swap between several instruments (including saxophone, harmonica, penny whistle, accordion, trumpet, 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 30-32), has led to numerous achievements and highlights. Some notable performances include playing AT&T Park and Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, several fundraisers for the Oakland Raiders, the Hawaiian islands for 5 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’ have recorded three albums, two of which were recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Sylvia Massy (Prince, Johnny Cash, Tool). 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.
