We Loved Decades!
Decades was awesome! They put on an amazing show and had our dance floor full the entire night. They are super talented and the songs sound so good. They were also very professional and provided sound for our cocktail hour and ceremony. They played classical guitar during our ceremony and kept the reception going by announcing the transitions. Their performance of the hava nagila was stellar and really got the guests involved in the dancing. They listened to our vows and played a theme song that was mentioned during our reception, which was a really special and thoughtful touch. After the wedding, guests could not stop mentioning how great the band was - it is the first thing most guests noted. In fact, one guest looked at their website to see if he could schedule them for his sister's wedding. They were responsive to emails and very easy to work with. Overall, they were the best! We are so pleased we hired Decades as our wedding band.Sent on 02/05/2020

Best. Wedding. Band. Ever!
It's impossible for me to recommend Decades strongly enough. They played our wedding reception of about 150 people and also handled music, sound, mics, etc. for the ceremony and were TOTAL PROS the entire time.
For the ceremony, they had everything set up well ahead of time and made it super easy for us and our officiant to use the mics. They played beautiful music leading up to the ceremony, and then transitioned flawlessly to our specifically requested songs. They even handled a couple of hiccups (not their own fault) and the audience was none the wiser!
And the reception - where to begin. Ben MC-ed the night and had such great energy, he made it really easy for everyone to have a great time. When they started playing, it was a blast! They're such talented musicians and performers, it was like our wedding turned into a concert. Everyone from our youngest cousins to our oldest relatives got out on the dance floor, and we got so many comments about how much our guests loved the band, but we already knew that just from looking at the dance floor!
Overall, Decades are the perfect wedding band. When it comes time to party, they bring it like nobody else, but they do it all like complete pros and made our wedding so much fun and so easy, too. 10/10, would recommend.Sent on 10/16/2019

We found Decades on Wedding Wire last summer and were delighted that they had a show coming up in the Bay Area (actually just around the corner from where our wedding would be held the following year). Their show was awesome - everyone was dancing and having a blast. We loved that they played so many instruments, men and women band mates sang, and just gave off a great vibe!! It was an easy decision from there and we booked them right away. The band was so helpful during the wedding planning process - they were so responsive and helpful in planning our reception. They provided an extensive list of songs they could play and learned a new song for our first dance (and adapted it to fit the choreography we had learned!). Wedding planning is stressful and it can be challenging to keep track of so many vendors - but Ben was so easy to communicate with that I had no doubt that they had everything under control and the night was going to be amazing. It was more than amazing - IT ROCKED. Our wedding reception was SO much fun thanks to Decades - our guests danced the ENTIRE night and everyone had a blast. They played a variety of songs and really got the party going and kept it going until the last song. We cannot thank Decades enough for making the night so special and memorable for everyone. Our guests are still raving about how talented Decades is and what an amazing time they had. We would choose Decades over and over again - it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and we can't recommend them enough. Thank you Decades for making our special day even better than we could have imagined!Sent on 10/10/2019
