The band was very accommodating, Bryan did a great job of responding quickly to my questions, and staying in touch. I did not have the opportunity to really listen to much of the gig as I was busy handling other activities during most of the band's play time. I did get good reports about the music and know the band was friendly and accommodating as they loaded in and prepared for the evening. We would be happy to hire them again!

We found Decades Band through GigMasters and they were a perfect fit for our holiday reception. Very accommodating in terms of what music could be played and even the singer dressed in our company color! Wonderful band with a wide range setlist. Everyone was singing and dancing along. We highly recommend Decades Band and would most likely hire again! Thanks for a wonderful night!

Decades Band recognized our veterans at the United States Postal Service headquarters ceremony on Nov. 8, 2018. We were honored to have the members of the band contribute to the success of the Veterans Day Event and a pleasure working with them. We look forward to working with Decades Band in the near future. Awesome performance!!!

The band was awesome! Our wedding was planned in a very short time frame and my wife and I didn't have an elaborate play list but the band took our preferred genres and came up with a great mix of jazz, modern R&B, funk, and other hip music. Brian was great with his communication and recommendations. The price was just right as well which included band performance and DJ play.

Decades Band bowled us over with all facets of their appearance: the ***** above are not exaggerations! Oh, and they were true gentlemen, too (there was no star category for that). Decades Band adapted to our outdoor private venue without skipping a beat (I suppose that's important, except in reggae). They charmed all of our guests. Decades played the repertoire that we, the hosts, requested; performed some mesmerizing solos, and added in some tunes that guests requested. It was like having our own Jazz & Standards Festival, right in our back yard. Bravo!

Bryan was very responsive and professional! The band arrived and performed on time and was very efficient in set up and breakdown. The Decades band kept the crowd entertained for the entire performance. I believe the community thoroughly enjoyed the performance by the Decades Band and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

I've booked hundreds of jazz and blues bands in my event marketing career. "Decades" is the best amateur band that I have ever heard. Noone left the venue until the band said good night! We will definitely both them for our first event in 2016. Philip Strambler, Commander, Liberty Post 122; CEO, In Honor of Our Troops (IHOOT Foundation, Inc.)

Nothing but class! I can't tell you how many people were still talking about them after our ceremony. They had the crowd up and dancing! The music and band were phenomenal!
